China’s Singles Day 2015 – What it is & how to celebrate it

Posted by Jason Ephraim on November 10, 2015

What is China’s “Singles Day”? Are you single? You might be surprised to learn that China actually celebrates the 11th of November as “Singles’ Day”. Because the Chinese have always held a deep spiritual belief in the powers of symbolism, the 11th day of the 11th month was an obvious candidate for celebrating singles. In China, the day is typically full of young singles organizing parties while thousands of businesses host wild events aimed at single men and women. “Blind Date” parties are also common for those singles wishing to use the holiday as an opportunity to find a partner. As is typical of most Chinese celebrations, food is an important part of the holiday. Singles often eat four deep-friend dough sticks (representing the four “1”s) and a stuffed bun (representing the period) for breakfast. The holiday actually began as a men-only celebration at several colleges in Nanjing throughout the 1990’s. However, it has quickly spread to include both sexes, and extend as far as Hong Kong and Singapore. In fact, thanks to huge promotions by online shopping vendors, like Alibaba, the holiday has actually become the largest online shopping day in the world!   How can you celebrate Singles’ Day? Unfortunately, Singles’ Day has yet to gain a strong foothold outside China. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t do your part to bring it to our shores. Are you single? Take this opportunity to celebrate yourself! Treat yourself to a nice meal. Take a spa day. Buy yourself a little present.…

Mailbird introduces Unified Inbox Plus

Posted by Christin on July 6, 2015

Mailbird brings control back to your inbox How nice would it be to be able to say, “I am on top of my emails and in total control of my inbox”? We at Mailbird believe you should be able to say that every single day. That is why we have implemented – Unified Inbox Plus. Another great time saving feature helping you get through your emails like a productivity machine. Unified Inbox Plus in Mailbird is more than just combining messages from all your different accounts into one beautifully simple, well-managed inbox. So let’s say you have a Gmail account for your work email and a Hotmail account for your personal email. Unified Inbox Plus in Mailbird, makes it so that you are able to view emails delivered to both accounts in the same inbox. Inbox Zero has never been so close   If you currently use Mailbird, when you update you will notice a new account has appeared above your individual accounts in the left menu. Say hello to the hexagon icon, this is Mailbird’s Unified Inbox Plus. This shows up if you have more than 1 email account added to Mailbird.   The emails in that inbox are shown by the order in which they are delivered, regardless of which account they are from. They are not separated or labeled.   The unified inbox contains all of your known system folders (archived, sent, trash etc.), but the folders themselves contain all messages from all your accounts. To keep it clean and uncluttered, your “unified archived” folder will now…
