How to Unsend a Message in Gmail or Google Apps

Everyone has sent an email that they wish they had not. Now imagine that you had the power to unsend that email!

Google is now allowing users to unsend an email that was sent out for up to 30 seconds.

To set up the unsend feature, you need to take the following steps:

1 Sign into your Gmail/Google Apps account.

2. Click on the gear button in the top right hand corner of the screen. A drop down menu will appear.

3. Once the drop down menu appears, click on settings. The settings section is where you can manage your email.

4. On the settings page, scroll down to the undo send feature. Make sure to click the box to enable the feature. Gmail gives users a choice of how long they can cancel a sent email. 5, 10, 20 or 30 seconds after it is sent.

When you send a message on Gmail, you are prompted to view the message or undo it. If you decide to undo the message; a window pops up with your original message.

This is how you can unsend an email on Gmail/Google Apps.

I have included a video from Tricks Tac on how to set up and use the unsend feature.

How Education is being Disrupted

The field of education is changing at a rapid rate. We can see these changes at all levels, especially at the K-12 space. Instructional shifts, Common Core standards and instructional technology are disrupting the way education is provided to students. SMART boards are used in a majority of classrooms which allows Teachers to make lessons interactive for students. The Teacher centered model is being replaced with the Student centered model. Students of today need constant stimulation, especially with technology. Traditional teaching methods and hardcover books do not stimulate the learners of today.

The Teacher of today is faced with more challenges than ever before. However there are more opportunities than ever before. The testing and education technology space is a multi-million dollar industry.  Venture capitalists are investing millions in ed-tech start ups.

So what does this mean for the teacher? This means that if teachers decide to take their educational expertise and apply it to creating high quality instructional materials that everyone can use; they have the potential to earn more money than  the average classroom Teacher.

Teachers have more challenges than ever before but they also have more opportunities as well.

Where’s the Beef?

The prices of Beef have sky rocketed  lately. I went out to dinner at a popular restaurant in New York City and the size of the steak I usually get; shrank to about half of the size for roughly the same amount of money. That is a hugh price increase!

Has anyone else noticed a similar trend when dining out? Tweet me at @DanGalante with your story.

The 2015 New York International Auto Show: Where Direct, Digital and Trade Show Marketing Meet

Trade shows are a great opportunity for brands and whole industries to sell and market their products. I have experienced this first hand during my time in Outside Sales and Marketing. Since then, Social Media has exploded. Last week, I had the privilege of covering the New York Auto show as I do each year. This trade show is an example how the Auto industry interconnects digital, direct and Trade show marketing in one synergy. The New York International show is promoted through various social networks, advertising and direct marketing i.e promotions and discounts.

However, the marketing does not end once you visit the show. Visitors are provided with literature from each auto brand along with the opportunity to view and engage with live exhibits. Visitors are then encourage to share their experience with others via Social Networks which provides free advertising for show organizers and auto brands. Cars and trucks are available to to sit in allowing potential buyers to get a feel for the vehicles.

Above, I have provided pictures and video highlights from my coverage but it is no substitute for being there. The show runs from April 3rd to April 12th. Stop by and visit if you are in the New York area!
