I’ve been using Gmail since it was first introduced. I’ve had my own domain since 1996, and in 2000, registered a second domain.
When Google introduced the Google Apps product, I moved my mail for both domains to it. I still have grandfathered free accounts there. So, all of my mail goes through these two domains. I have an account on both of them, but I forward one to the other and only ever really set one of them up in my mail clients. I’ve been pretty happy with the Gmail service until I got my new iPhone 5s.
About once a week, I get a call from “The Captain” telling me I’ve won a free cruise. It always starts with the sound of a cruise ship horn. It also always comes from a Washington state phone number, so I have gotten used to just ignoring the call if it comes from there.
But now, I have found a great idea from Blogger David Smith on how to minimize the impact of unwanted calls. You can’t stop them, but David’s idea greatly reduces how disruptive they are.
