        • A handful of people working at a handful of tech companies steer the thoughts of billions of people every day, says design thinker Tristan Harris. From Facebook notifications to Snapstreaks to YouTube autoplays, they’re all competing for one thing: your attention. Harris shares how these companies prey on our psychology for their own profit and calls for a design renaissance in which our tech instead encourages us to live out the timeline we want.

Background

A little over a month ago, I needed to research some past email correspondences.

I am not that satisfied with Microsoft’s Outlook web site.

I find it to be slow and its performance is uneven.

It might be the advertisement, might be that I keep too much emails in my inbox, or the HTML/JavaScript client.

I have a reasonably fast Internet Connection at work and at home and so it is not network throughput.

Save a dozen other posts for Outlook.com.

 

Windows Live Mail

Thought back to yesteryear, downloaded Windows Live and stubbornly installed Windows Live Mail.

Stubborn is the active word here.

My struggles is acknowledged here.

Help

The only good that comes from been stubborn is that a few people let in that they were just as stubborn.

And, that if you really want an email client for your desktop, em-client is a tool that one should shortlist.

em Client is available here.
