Don’t you just hate it when an online company – an online company! – offers no way to cancel your account with them, uh..you know… online? Of course, this is because they want you to call them so that they can try to convince you to not cancel your account. This is the case with Stamps.com, who not only doesn’t offer a way to cancel online, but doesn’t even make it easy to find out how to cancel. You might think that you could cancel your Stamps.com account – or at least get information about how to cancel your account – by going into your account settings, or your billing settings, in your Stamps.com account. But you would be wrong. You have to go into their support area, and search for “cancel”, only to be told “you must call us during business hours.” So, we are going to make it just a little bit easier by telling you how to do it here.

Siri has made it incredibly easy to set reminders on your iPhone. Want to be reminded of something you have to do at a certain time? Tell Siri to remind you when it’s time. Want to be reminded of something you need to do when you arrive somewhere? Tell Siri to set a reminder based on location. But what if you want to set a reminder manually – silently – without invoking Siri? Maybe you’re in a meeting, or church, or somewhere else where you don’t want Siri blabbing her loud mouth?

Dropbox, the cloud-based file storage service, has 500 million users. And an appreciable number of those Dropbox users can’t figure out how to delete files, let alone how to delete files permanently, on Dropbox. In part that’s because despite being nearly 10 years old, Dropbox’ user interface (“UI”) is still stuck in 1998, and in part because, well, the “how to delete” mechanism is buried and poorly documented.
