  • I’m pleasantly surprised to learn what, when using Google’s Gmail in the Safari browser (and perhaps others), you can “pop out” a reply message, allowing you to edit the subject line. This, I hope, will help me get off one e-mail distribution, because I could put “remove” in the subject line this way. (Reducing e-mail is my new crusade; please read “On Computing” in The Washington Times next Tuesday to learn why.) \ \ \
  • Gmail on the iPhone can be done one of two ways: either as part of regular e-mail, which is fine, or in the mobile Google-for-iPhone Web browser. The latter is a more Gmail-like experience. It’s nice. I just never tried it before.\ \ \
  • Wi-Fi at Denver International is also free, with a catch. You need to watch a 30-second commercial, after scrolling through (and agreeing to) an interminable list of usage conditions. (For all I know, I’ve agreed not to launch a first nuclear strike on Teheran from the DIA free Wi-Fi. Not that I could do that, but I think I agreed not to. I digress.) You can scroll and agree to the Wi-Fi terms on an iPhone, but the video doesn’t come up, thus messing up attempts at Wi-Fi-icity on the handheld. This is one reason, I suppose, that Apple includes a switchover to regular wireless data when Wi-Fi isn’t available.\ \ \
  • I’m beginning to really, really like Qwest; especially after finding a more comfortable chair. I might even start a campaign to Free Joe Nacchio, who actually isn’t in prison, but is awaiting retrial on insider trading charges related to his former tenure as Qwest chairman. (Full disclosure: I covered Mr. Nacchio’s career at AT&T for two trade publications.) That aside, the free high-speed Internet clocks in at around 7 megabits per second for downloads and about half for uploads. Not bad for no charge!\ \ \ — Mark Kellner, The Washington Times
