I love my vacuum cleaner, but I have no idea what to do with some of those attachments. (I call the long tube extension "the spider catcher.") Luckily, Real Simple has this graphic of pretty much every vacuum attachment that exists, from basic to super specific.

Chrome: Heavy Google Docs users know it can be a pain when you get an email with an attachment -- even if it's in Gmail -- and want to save it in Google Docs for later. You have to view the attachment first, and then click to save it in Google Docs, and even then it only works if it's one of a few file types. With the Gmail Attachments to Docs extension for Chrome, saving one or all of your attachments is as easy as clicking a single link.
iOS (Jailbroken): iMessage is a great way to send videos and photos, but if you want to send anything else you're out of luck with the default settings. Attacher is a simple Cydia tweak that adds the function to send any file type or memo directly through iMessage.
In addition to adding some nice speed and interface enhancements (like swiping up to check for mail), our favourite Mac Gmail client Sparrow (which works great with IMAP, too) has decided to take a stand against email attachments.
If you open an attachment from within your email program and then save it, the file may seem to have disappeared. Similarly, files you download from the web can be hard to find if you don't know where the default download location is. This guide is here to help new computer users retrieve those missing files.
Windows: drop.io is a quick way to share up to 100 MB in files, but it's easy to forget about. With a beta Outlook plug-in, drop.io can become your go-to means of sending really large files without annoying your recipients.
SugarSync is a worthy Dropbox competitor, offering finer-grained file management tools and more mobile app access. Now it's added another convenient feature: send a file to your personal SugarSync address, and your attachment is synced to your account.
Apparently the attachment size limit we casually mentioned last week was actually a new upgrade. All Gmail users should see a bump from 20MB to 25MB limits in their accounts, according to the Google Operating System blog. As Alex notes there, Gmail's convenient-but-crash-prone Flash uploading tool may make it very hard to actually get a 25MB file up and going, so clicking to use the older tool that uploads upon hitting "Send" is probably the way to go for gigundo-sized files.
