Short Week Tips & Tricks From Devon

I've got the usual tips and tricks this week including a great way to send files straight to Google Drive from Gmail, a handy screenshot tool for Chrome and the Evernote WebClipper for Safari!  If I don't get to see you this week, have a great holiday and safe travels!

Where I Will Be This Week
Monday - Bowman Building - 11 - 1 - Room 212
Wednesday - Cork Street - 11 - 1 - Room M 155
Always Online @

A recent update to Gmail on the web allows you to send any attachments that are sent to you over to Google Drive.  What is especially nice about this is that you do not have to leave your email.  This is a huge timesaver for those who receive attachments all the time! Want to see more? Check out the link for a brief video walkthrough of the process in action. 
Techsmith - the makers of Camtasia and a host of other software, have come out with a Chrome extension that is pretty handy.  This screen shot tool allows you to click and drag a part of your screen and then mark it up using the built it annotation tools.  The link to share is right there as well.  Best of all, your images are saved in Google Drive for easy future access!  Give it a try!  

The Evernote WebClipper for Chrome is something I have covered in the past, and it is one of the tools that I use everyday to snag articles, images, emails, etc... from my internet wanderings. Now you can have all that goodness on the Apple browser Safari!  Check out the link to download this amazing extension for your own browser.  You won't be disappointed. 

Remember to submit your name suggestion here before leaving for the holiday. All names must be submitted by Dec. 8th. You could win $100.
