A big, profitable company with conscious leadership can do more for our world than the startup that stayed small because it put social purpose over the customer.
Hard-to-find, free features that save you time, paper, and maybe even your job:
Sign PDFs Electronically
You can sign a PDF on your Mac without having to print, sign, and scan a document or pay Adobe for their signature feature.
Setup: In Preview’s preferences, go to Signatures, sign a piece of white paper, hold up to your camera, and Preview saves your signature.
Hold your signed piece of paper so the signature rests on the blue line.
Use: Under the Edit toolbar (), click the Signature button (), hover over your desired signature line, and then click. Done!
Unsend Awkward Emails
This is the closest thing to a time machine.
That feeling when you realize you replied all, had a typo, or forgot the attachment is a thing of the past. “Undo Send” allows you to catch bad emails a few seconds after hitting send.
Setup: In Gmail, click Settings > Labs > “Undo Send” lab > Enable > Save Changes.
