Got Gmail? A Gadget for Shortcuts

Boot Camp feature for Friday, December 25, 2009

Shortcuts for Gmail users. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. It's a little device designed to save you time...if you're one of the millions of Gmail users. The Gboard is a color coded keypad that plugs into the USB port of your PC....that creates shortcuts. It was created by film producer Charlie Mason...

"It saves you mouse movements. One example of what you can do is you can look through your inbox, move through your messages and mark messages as you march down your list with keystrokes that are much faster than those little mouse movements you need to do. And with one key, you can flag all those messages as spam, mark something important with a star. All those kinds of actions that you have to otherwise use the mouse for."

It's clever...sells for 19 dollars at gboard.com...and can save you time. How much depends on the amount of time you spend using Gmail. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
