Screencast: Use the Sign-In Seal to thwart fraudsters
First off I want to thank everyone who responded to last weeks polls. It was very interesting to learn how our breakdown of New and Classic users is (almost 2:1 in favor of New mail), that the vast majority are using either IE or Firefox on Windows XP, and that we have such a passionate group of Linux users. I do apologize again to the Linux fans out there. As a longtime Mac user myself I should be more sensitive to users who stray from the majority . Thanks again for all of the great feedback, and I’ll be posting more polls soon!
For today’s post I wanted to accomplish a few things. Thank you for voting in the polls (check), refresh everyone on an important safety tip to foil fraudsters, and play with some fun software that I learned about at Blog World. Ok, that last one was really the one I was most excited about, but I’m glad I could fit in the other two. The Jing Project is the name of the site and it’s a great tool for grabbing visual content from your screen and sharing it with friends (it even features Flickr integration!).
Many of you have probably noticed that little folded down corner at the top right of the sign-in box. Well that is the Sign-In Seal, and this video will show you how it works.
