In light of recent events, you might be concerned about your online data and privacy — particularly on platforms like Facebook. Social media and technology platforms like Facebook and Google collect massive amounts of data on their users. That’s especially disconcerting when that data could fall into the wrong hands, like we’ve seen with the […] Read More… iDrop News
Over the weekend, the Internet Archive announced it was offering a new series of emulators. This time, they’re designed to mimic one of gaming’s most obscure artifacts — handheld games. When I say a “handheld game,” I don’t mean the Game Boy or the PSP — those are handheld consoles. These are single-game handheld or tabletop devices that look and feel more like toys. The collection includes the very old, mostly-forgotten games sold in mini-handhelds from the 80s onward. You might be able to recognize a few of these devices — the Tamagotchi, for example. Others are decidedly more esoteric. I…
SpaceChain has entered a partnership with the Arch Mission Foundation to use open source technology to launch an ambitious project involving the storage of large data sets in spacecraft and on other planets.

The first VR experience based on author Brandon Sanderson’s popular Stormlight Archive series has arrived. The Way of Kings: Escape the Shattered Plains marks the first time that the books have been translated to a visual medium, giving fans the chance to put themselves in the shoes of one of the series’ main heroes, Kaladin Stormblessed, as well as get the chance to see what a possible film or TV show adaptation could look like further down the line.
The Way of Kings: Escape the Shattered Plains was developed by Arcturus in partnership with DMG Entertainment with a twofold purpose in mind: the aforementioned fan experience is part of the proceedings, but the VR session will also be used to help DMG Entertainment (which owns the rights…
Email inboxes fill up quickly, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the ever-increasing pile of unopened messages in your inbox. That’s why it’s so helpful to be able to check your email on your iPhone; even a few minutes of deleting emails here and there can make a big difference. If you’ve connected your Gmail account to the iOS mail app on your iPhone you may have noticed that the option to delete isn’t offered by the iOS mail app. Instead, you’re given three choices: Mark, Move, or Archive. Where do archived emails go? Choosing archive means the email will be moved out of your inbox and sent to an archive folder, but it’s still available if you want to open or re-read it later. So many emails don’t even need to be read a first time, though, much less archived! It’s time to learn how to delete google emails on iPhone, rather than archiving them. Inbox zero, here we come!
How to Delete Instead of Archive Your Emails on iPhone
First you’ll need to get to your Gmail inbox in the iOS Mail app, then you can go about deleting unwanted emails. (You can also select only emails sent to your Google address while in All Inboxes) As you’re about to see, this tip applies to me and my inbox in a very real way. Try not to faint.
Open your Mail app.
Tap on your Gmail inbox.
Tap Edit at the top of the screen, a blank circle appears to the left of each message, tap to check the ones you’d like to delete.
3D Touch the Archive button at the bottom right of the screen. (This simply means firmly press your finger on the button rather than tapping it.)
Tap the “Trash Selected Messages” option.
Congratulations! You can now go about the process of deleting unwanted emails from your Gmail inbox, rather than Archiving them. Hopefully, you don’t have as many to delete as I do!

The Library of Congress just announced some changes to its long-running plan to archive all of Twitter. On December 31st, 2017, it will stop archiving all tweets and instead choose certain tweets to archive on a “very selective basis,” Gizmodo reports. The decision was announced in a recently published white paper that reads “the tweets collected and archived will be thematic and event-based, including events such as elections, or themes of ongoing national interest, e.g. public policy.”
The LOC first announced its plans to create a single searchable archive of every public tweet more than seven years ago, but the project has stalled for a few years. In 2013, the organization published a white paper attributing the delay to budget issues…
