GMail Filters/Labels are a God Sent

I used to have about 20 filters/labels for my main Gmail account, when I moved from POP to IMAP syncing it was a PITA to have to sync all the folders [each label is treated as a folder by Messaging in Pocket Outlook]. So I selected all my mail and removed ALL the labels and deleted all the filters and relied on Search [which works pretty well too]
Today I was forced to take another look at filters/labels
Recently I've been receiving emails that I'd rather not read/look at [for now at least]. So I decided to make some filters and move the emails automatically as they are received to the Archive [so I don't see them but they are there just in case I might need em, of course I've also added a Label to them for easier organization. I was doing this on the desktop and viola after 1 sync [via IMAP] the emails disappeared from my TyTN II's inbox. Now my inbox is much much more bearable.
I wonder if this was the trick used in the movie SATC by the assistant? If so I'll be damned! I learned/was inspired by something from SEX AND THE CITY: The Movie.
IMHO people still using Yahoo or worse Hotmail [or Live Hotmail as MS likes to call it now]are missing out on the power of GMail.
I mean the FREE POP/IMAP access alone is compelling enough...

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…

Black Cat vs Firestar vs Silver Sable?

Spider-man needs a partner or side-kick. I prefer crime fighting partner vs side-kick tho.

Marvel is rumored to be hiring Josh Brolin for Thanos as the mega-villain for their cinematic universe. This means Guardians of the Galaxy & Avengers. Both are super teams.

Fox has teased a mega-villain for the X-Men super-team to go up against in their latest movie. FYI, X-Men: Days of Future Past has a post credit scene. I think Fantastic Four is also being rebooted. Yes that is a super-team as well.

DC still playing catch-up but they are going in with the heavy hitters Bats & Boy Scout with a rumored Amazon in the mix. We all know the goal is the Justice League super-team

Meanwhile, I think Sony is in trouble. Right now they have the "Web Head" going up against multiple villains and the formula is kinda stale. Franchise fatigue not withstanding, our favorite web slinging, trash talking super-hero has the "Sinister Six" super villain group to fight but who can h…
