Web/Mac/Gmail: Minbox, the sassy, fast, free, file-sharing service, has taken the wraps off a major update today. It includes new security tools and instant screencasting on the Mac.
At Lifehacker, we’re all about doing things as quickly and efficiently as possible; which makes this impending Gmail “update” a bit of a drag. From the beginning of July, you will no longer be able to send Calender invitations through Gmail. Instead, users will be required to head into Google Calendar. Boo!
Android: Continuing the never-ending onslaught of new Google Now cards, Google has begun rolling out a feature that will remind you of upcoming bills. Provided you have email scanning turned on, of course.
Google’s algorithms have always scanned Gmail messages to display personalised advertisements, but a recent update to the terms of service has everyone talking about it again. You can’t stop scanning altogether, but if you want to limit what kinds of ads you see — and even get rid of some — you can do so with a few tweaks.
