If you're like me and, well, everyone , you have at least one Gmail account. I know that some of you use Gmail as your primary email provider - and with good reason. Google provides a very powerful email solution with quality junk filtering and lots of storage for an excellent price - FREE.
You may have opened your account recently and noticed something different: tabs at the top of your page!
Naturally, our good friends at Mashable have provided and excellent tutorial on the new tabs. You can click here to check out this story. Well worth the read if you use Gmail on a regular basis.
Fortunately or unfortunately, I receive a bazillion jillion "offer" emails every day that fit perfectly into the "Promotions" tab. Most all of these emails can be considered junk so, guess what? No filtering through my entire inbox to find the emails trying to sell me stuff I probably don't need. Now, I just click on the "Promotions" tab, scan quickly, select all and delete. Voila! A more productive day is at hand.
