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.…
