Read Part I about the future of Google and Microsoft. This article discusses Windows and the challenges it faces.
You know how annoying it is when you paste something into Gmail and it keeps the weird formatting? I finally pulled out the Google and discovered that in Chrome you can just press Ctrl-Shift-V to paste something just as text.
If you already pasted the text into Gmail and you want to remove formatting, click the “remove formatting” button on the top right (though it won’t change the font). (Hat-tip:Lifehacker)
