Switching carriers is the most opportune time to consider Google Voice. Is it right for you and if so, how do you do it?
You've waited three years to move your iPhone from AT&T(T) to Verizon(VZ) for whatever reason. But perhaps instead of heading directly to Verizon, should you free yourself from the carrier lock-in altogether and add a lot of functionality and freedom for a small price? You might even MORESeth Weintraub - Feb 3, 2011 3:08 PM ET
Print from any web-enabled device including your smartphone.
As promised, Google (GOOG) is starting to roll out its Cloud Print services to its Gmail clients who want to print an email, document or PDF file to their printers through the internet. The process is pretty straight forward on the client side, (which incidentally includes any device that can read Gmail). It gets much more complicated on the printer side.

By Daniel Roberts, reporter
You may have noticed certain spam comments repeatedly showing up on Fortune.com – they're hard to miss, appearing mere seconds after the editors here publish an article. The comments are almost identical each time:Nov 19, 2010 1:26 PM ET
Facebook's "don't call it email" email will have some effect on major email players, with Yahoo and MSN being exposed more than Google.
The first thing I thought of when Facebook released its FaceMail integrated product yesterday was that Google has SMS, email and IM built into GMail/Google Voice already (along with Voice, calendar and a slew of other stuff as well). Perhaps Google's solution isn't as elegant and its attempts at integration MORESeth Weintraub - Nov 16, 2010 4:30 PM ET
E-mail, text messages, instant messages -- Mark Zuckerberg wants Facebook to be the last mile between all the redundant systems and users' simple desire to see all their messages in one place.
By Chadwick Matlin, contributor
Mark Zuckerberg was just turning 13 when AOL Instant Messenger was released in 1997. Instant messaging was nothing new—AOL had allowed its users to chat with other subscribers since 1993, and ICQ had allowed anyone to MORENov 16, 2010 8:44 AM ET
Having lost the email crown long ago to Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo, Aol wants to jump back into the fray with 'Project Phoenix,' a web-based client built from scratch.
Since Google (GOOG) first introduced Gmail back in 2004, it's regularly updated the web-based email service with new features: increased storage space, a web-based mobile app, Google Chat and numerous interface tweaks among them. To catch up, Microsoft (MSFT) introduced the MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Nov 14, 2010 12:00 PM ET
Google has enabled a legacy view of Gmail making migrating Lotus and Outlook users a little easier.
There's at least one of those people in every office. People that, no matter how much of a benefit there is to learning a new way to do things, insist on staying in the old way.
For people migrating to Gmail from other mail services like Lotus, Exchange or other web mails like Hotmail and MORESeth Weintraub - Sep 29, 2010 12:20 PM ET

My account hasn't even been activated yet.
Wow, how is that for scale? Google tweeted today that it had already surpassed the 1 million call mark on its first day of Google Voice integration with Gmail. And not everyone has even had their Gmail accounts integrated yet (like me!).
In a tweet on their official feed, Google (GOOG) said:
Over 1,000,000 calls placed from Gmail in just 24 hours! Thanks to everyone using MORESeth Weintraub - Aug 26, 2010 2:36 PM ET
In an update due later today, Google Mobile will now allow push notifications for email and calendars via its mobile app.
Announced on its Google Mobile blog, the Google Mobile App for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad will now support push notifications of calendar events and emails. Both Gmail and Google hosted email for domains are supported.
This is an important development because Apple (AAPL), up until this point, has only allowed its own MobileMe MORESeth Weintraub - Aug 23, 2010 1:50 PM ET
