Convert Mailto links to contact forms

SquareSend is an Internet startup which allows webmasters to auto-convert the Mailto hyperlinks on their websites’ webpages into trendy Contact Us forms. Most of the times, websites either hide their Mailto addresses or the hyperlink opens into the user’s email program.

But with this startup, all that webmasters have to do is insert a single line of code into their webpage, & the Mailto link will open into a Contact Us form. You can start using SquareSend by creating an account 1st.

To start using this new startup, you need to create an account at SquareSend with the email address that you would like to use in your Mailto links, then copy-paste the snippet of JavaScript code into your website. For 50 emails a month the service is free & for more than that, you need to pay a certain fee.

Remote control your desktop using the Internet or your phone

In today’s world, most of us are kinda trapped between our computing machines. We have a PC at home, one in the office, then our own smartphones, Tablets….you get the picture.

So how many times have you come home, logged on to your home desktop & realized that a particular file is on your office PC, & you have no access to it right now? But this need not be the case ’cause there are solutions out there that can help you out of this quagmire.

LogMeInOne such is LogMeIn. This Boston, USA-located company has been around since 2003, and provides users with solutions for remote control, file sharing, systems management, data backup, business collaboration & on-demand customer support of PCs, servers, Macintosh computers, smartphones and other connected devices.

LogMeIn has a host of products in its armoury, many of them to do with online file sharing. One of them is the Cloud-based Cubby provides a flexible method of keeping your files organized at your command, both for individual productivity and shared collaboration at an individual & enterprise level.

A “cubby” is any folder you want to have on all your computers, available from any device, stored at or shared publicly or privately. Once a folder is a cubby, you can access it from anywhere.

Cubby is built on LogMeIn’s Gravity Data Services, a proprietary data synchronization & storage cloud. You can send a cubby to anyone with a public link. They’ll be able to access the files inside but won’t be able to edit them. When you want to collaborate, invite colleagues to your cubby with their email address, they can make changes to your documents, & the latest file will always be in your shared cubby.

While the service is free (upto 5GB) for individual users, enterprise & others have to pay a fee to use the same.
