Good Morning Everyone,

Hope that you all had a great weekend!  Today I've got information on the new Google Alerts, a great Gmail Chrome extension and an extremely easy way to create animated GIF's.
If you have any questions, let me know!

SU Tips and Tricks

New Google Alerts Interface
Google Alerts is one of the best ways to get notified when new things appear on the internet. I've got alerts set for my name, SU, and other topics that I am interested in.  Anytime there is a new article/website/posting anywhere on the web that mentions my alerts, I get an email notification. Creating alerts has never been easier! Check out the new Google Alerts and see for yourself.
Checker Plus for Gmail
Looking for a handy way to keep tabs on your email without actually going to your inbox? This Chrome Extension can help you do that and lots more. Get notified of new emails, delete or archive on the fly, email directly from websites and much more!  Check out the link for more information on this time-saving tool.
GIF's can be a useful tool when trying to provide demonstrations of short tasks. Now, the process of creating GIF's just got even easier by using SnagIt Chrome App.  Anytime you create a video using SnagIt that is under 20 seconds, you now have the option to save the file as a GIF.  Go and install the App and give it a try for yourself.
