Hotmail announces disposable e-mail addresses

Posted in email by Conner Flynn on February 5th, 2011

Hotmail Aliases will let you create multiple, “disposable” e-mail accounts that all filter back to your primary email. You can already do this on Yahoo, but you have to pay extra for Plus service. Gmail will let you create unique addresses too, but in that case you can only add an extension to your existing name.

With Hotmail’s solution you can create anything you want. So I guess feel free to flame anyone you want, totally anonymously without giving yourself away. Is that really a good thing? You decide.

It’s not going end up in the hands of most gadget lovers, but considering the demographic they are aiming for, it could do well. Laptop mag had themselves a peek at the device and are claiming that it’s simple to use. They really liked the soft keyboard and talk about how it can be tucked away anywhere thanks to it’s thinness, which ought to make grandma happy. Until she loses it.

E-mail goes low tech, kills trees

Posted in email by Conner Flynn on April 12th, 2008

E-mail goes low tech, kills trees
I get way too many emails everyday. Sometimes it’s amazing that I get anything done at all outside of my inbox. It’s insane. I don’t even want to know what it would be like if each email was on a sheet of paper. The stack would be at least 4 feet tall.

That’s why I’m scared of these paper e-mail pads. Now people who wouldn’t normally email me are going to be filling my desk with useless paper e-mails. Just fill in the form like a real email. Each pad comes with 50 sheets, and will cost you $3.99, which is about 8 cents per e-mail. Great way to kill trees and annoy your co-workers. Soon they won’t even talk to you, they’ll just slip a paper on your desk for every little thing.

Gmail Hacked

gmail mass email deletionThe problems continue for Gmail users. A vulnerability was found in the Gmail web based email application that allowed anyone to see a Gmail user’s contacts. The vulnerability came from the fact that apparently Gmail stores the users contacts in a JavaScript file. Any clever web hacker could steal this information as long as the user was logged into their Gmail account and visited a malicious site.

Gmail has had problems in the past with this sort of issue. Jeremiah Grossman discovered the issued and reported it to Google.

Both issues revolve around using JavaScript, the scripting language used in web pages, to make requests for data. If the request is made from the HTML within a Gmail message then the cookies used to authenticate a user to Gmail may be used to get information …
