Gmail Motion- Write your E-mails with Body Movement

by Julie
 

So many thing have changed over the years, computers are leaps and bounds ahead of what they were in the beginning, but since the advent of e-mail, the way it has been composed has stayed exactly the same, until now…

Google explains that the mouse and keyboard were invented before the Internet even existed. Since then, countless technological advancements have allowed for much more efficient human computer interaction. Why then do we continue to use outdated technology? Introducing Gmail Motion — now you can control Gmail with your body.

Gmail Motion uses your computer’s built-in webcam and Google’s patented spatial tracking technology to detect your movements and translate them into meaningful characters and commands. Movements are designed to be simple and intuitive for people of all skill levels.

First you need to familiarize yourself with some of the basic functionality of Gmail Motion using this printable guide of sample gestures. With it, you’ll be able to start writing and responding to emails – with your body – in no time.

Heres another great review for the Ivy Mount Guest House

This is what makes my job great!

A review has been posted by ‘Miss. Harriet Brewitt’ see below:

Review:
‘When my partner and I arrived at the Ivy Mount Guest House we were greeted with a smart looking property. We had walked just five minutes from the Eccles tram stop and found Ivy Mount very easily.
We had previously told Paul (the owner) that we would be arriving late in the evening so he provided us with a key safe and emailed me (very promptly) the combination. This was a brilliant idea, ideal for flexible arrivals.
We walked through the guest house which was very clean and smelt nice. Even though there was nobody there to greet us, it felt welcoming and cosy.
We found our room with ease and were immediately impressed with its size. There was an ironing board and iron, TV and DVD player, hair-drier and tea and coffee making facilities. A welcome booklet provided us with a free wifi code and local information etc. The room was warm and the beds were comfortable, great for relaxing after a hard day\’s shopping.
Our room had a very small en suite. This was in no way a problem for us and we appreciated that it made the best out of a small space.
Downstairs at breakfast we met Paul who was very warm and friendly. There were a good selection of foods to fill up on and the cooked breakfast was very tasty(with runny eggs)!
We stayed two nights at the Ivy Mount Guest House and will definitely be back when we are next in Manchester.’

Thank you very much ‘Miss. Harriet Brewitt’

Valentine Day is Comming…(14 feb)

5 Ways to Attract B&B Customers for Valentine’s Day

As Valentine’s Day approaches, it’s a great time of year to capitalise on your B&B business and turn a profit with a bit of clever marketing and these inspirational ideas.

1. Dinner packages

If your B&B has restaurant facilities, consider offering dinner, bed and breakfast deals for the Valentine’s weekend. With a romantic menu, a bottle of wine and some romantic décor in the dining room all thrown in to the package, your guests will enjoy an excellent weekend break and you’ll be able to pull in the customers with this ‘special offer’.

For B&Bs without a big kitchen or dining room, try approaching a restaurant or pub nearby for a partnership offer – they provide the dinner, you provide the bed and the customers receive a relaxed and stress-free holiday.

2. Special events

For a more unusual option than dinner for two, arrange a fun event to attract customers to your B&B. An evening of wine tasting or a menu of canapés paired with cocktails will be sure to get couples interested in what you have to offer.

3. Romantic breakfasts

Think chocolate, strawberries and decadent recipes – change your usual continental or Full English breakfast options for a more romantic and exciting menu especially for the Valentine’s weekend. These romantic B&B recipes should get you started on the right foot – simply upload the new menu to your website or listing page to attract the customers. Don’t forget to decorate the dining room with some romantic touches to set the scene!

4. Romance in the room

Subtle changes can make all the difference – add fairy lights, fresh flowers, rose petals and candles for a warm and inviting atmosphere that suit a romantic weekend break. Take photos of a decorated room and put it online to make sure guests know what to expect.

You can also offer extra services for a small fee to help a guest surprise their loved one – boxes of chocolates, roses and chilled champagne are easily bought and arranged in the room and will be a much appreciated treat when your customer’s open the door.

5. Singles parties

Love might be in the air, but why let the couples have all the fun? They aren’t your only prospective guests for Valentine’s Day. Instead of offering special rates and packages to couples, organise group rates for friends wishing to escape the loneliness of the holiday or singles looking to meet new people.

In your bar or dining room, you can offer a singles party or fun mixing event like speed dating to encourage more customers to come to your B&B
