My wish lists to improve my Internet and mobile productivity

December 22nd, 2010 · 1 Comment

Many of the readers of this blog work in live in the Silicon Valley. Maybe you can help me solve my problems while making some money. 🙂

  • POP Access to Yahoo! Email: I’ve been using Yahoo Mail since 1995. Prior to 2001 (or 2002), Yahoo! lets users to download emails to POP client such as Outlook. It had since started to charge for such a simple feature. Please make it a free feature again, Yahoo!
  • Juniper VPN Access on my T-Mobile G2 with Google Android Phone (T-Mobile) : I love my G2 phone from T-Mobile. However, as far as I know, there is no Android client for the Juniper VPN (my employer uses Juniper Virtual Private Network that allows employees to access corporate network remotely.)
  • A real-time bandwidth meter for my G2 phone: I want to find out exactly how much bandwidth an application is using. I’d like to know the information in real-time so that I don’t waste the bandwidth and get over charged. There has to be something like this out there, but I haven’t been able to find the app. Any recommendation?
  • More user friendly email “archiving” capability on Microsoft Outlook: Maybe it’s just me, I found it’s quite inconvenient to move emails around in Outlook when my email usage exceeds the capacity assigned by my network administrator. I have a local folder to store my emails to save space, but there has to be easier and more convenient way to save emails locally and reduce storage space on Exchange server.

    Only the Outlook part I can help, as a MSFTer. In case you haven't, you might want to try to right click on a folder in your folder, click the property, go to “AutoArchive” tab and check the options there.
