Send Text Message by Email

Dang, pecking out those tiny keys with a regular non-Qwerty cell-phone handset keyboard can be tough. Fear no longer! You can send out text messages with your email program. This method is also great for folks outside the country who cannot easily text to another country. Tip: Make sure to remove your signature from email, so it’s not too long. Another way it would make it easier for the reader when you send text message by email is to remove all the replies on the email, since there is very little room on the tiny screens to read all text.

Oh, by the way, there are other ways to send a text message other than email. You can send a text message using apps on your phone with your voice. Most phones have a way for you to just click on a voice link and send a text message with your voice, but these apps provide more features. These are iPhone/iPad apps which you can most likely download on Android Marketplace as well.

Funmail Free Texting – Free text and picture messaging with loads of images to use in text messaging.

TextFree with Voice – Free text and picture messaging – with a free number (while they last)

Textie Messaging – The creators of Tweetie and Borange are proud to present Textie™ Messaging, the unlimited texting app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. If you and a friend both have iPhones but are still paying to text each other, we definitely recommend you try using Textie Messaging instead–and communicate for free.

Shopping for Gadgets and Finding the Lowest Price

Shopping:  To many it’s an activity of exploration. To others it’s an anathema. I have bargain mania. I’m good at finding them, so I loooove online shopping–especially for gadgets! If you’re a fan on our Facebook page or have been a fan for some time, you’ll know that I scour the web for deals and more deals, mostly gadgets but other things as well. 99% of the time, I post stuff I would buy, occassionally, when it’s such a good deal – I have to just share it.

Here are a few of my favorite things… I mean shopping sites:

Google Products. They have everything here, from AAA rechargeable batteries to Zumba DVDs. If money can buy it (and it’s not evil), you can get it here.

Google: not evil!

Go to Google Products, type in any purchasable material object and use the Invisible Hand Extension or the Price Blink Extension to see if you’re getting the best possible price. (FYI, an extension is a button that sits in the frame of your browser and works with your browser to improve your internet experience. These will work with Internet Explorer, Safari, Mozilla and Chrome.) It’s almost like having a personal assistant out there, looking for the needle in the haystack, while you get to surf the reviews pages. And seriously, what could possibly be more entertaining than this review page?

Price Grabber. The granddaddy of price comparison shopping. I used to use this all the time, but now I find Google Shopping a bit more versitle. Still a great site.

Tech Bargains. How does an Apple Outlet for less than $1000 sound? Sounds good. Also, ,this site looks for sweet deals from competing sites, like this bargain on a Monster Cable PowerCenter 8 Outlet Surge for $24.99.

Slick Deals - Great Online Shopping Bargains

 

 

Slick Deals posts multiple new coupons every single day. Like this Nike Windproof Umbrella for $51.

Woot - Awesome Deal of the Day Shopping

 

Woot offers one deal, for one day. Today they offered a groovy solar powered Bluetooth kit for $15. Tomorrow, who knows?

Daily Steals offers limited time deals on all kinds of stuff, too. New one every day, such as a $30 8GB Nano mp3/mp4

Deal Sucker. Another daily deal offerer. This one has a “Mystery Box of Crap” Friday. I’m not making that up. I haven’t taken the plunge yet, but the mystery box has a 4/5-star rating. Hey, at $9.99, it’s not that huge of a risk!

Wherever you go – wherever you buy – make sure to look at the reviews. Just type into your favorite search engine “productname review” and someone usually has an opinion on it. If you’re not sure, just pose the question on my Facebook Business Page. Happy to Help!
