    1. So if you subscribe to both Inbox and All mail you are in practise downloaded your mails twice. If you then delete a mail in inbox it doesnt go away in All mail. It just get the trash-tag. In my opinion you should never subscribe to All mail. You never need to see it. All you need to see are INBOX, TRASH, SENT and the folders YOU created in your gmail-account.

    1. Just this year I made a gmail account, just for me to send myself creative ideas, interesting quotes, and write down moving experiences. I also send myself articles that I like and it’s nice to be able to write my thoughts or key words to go with it. Then the email can be organized into folders for the different themes. It’s a really easy way to bring it all with me and to never feel like I have to wait to record an idea.

    1. They’ve learned, and that’s more dangerous than caring, because that means they’re rationally pricing these harms. The day that 20% of consumers put a price tag on privacy, freemium is over and privacy is back.

      Google want you to say yes, not because they're inviting positivity more than ever, but because they want you to purchase things and make them richer. This is the essence of capitalism.
