You know that the Mac Mail app can organize your email into threaded conversations, but how to actually get it to do that – how to set the conversation view in Mac Mail – is weirdly not obvious. However the reason that it’s not obvious how to turn on threaded conversations in Mac Mail actually relates to a nifty aspect of the threaded view feature. Read on!
Gmail automatically puts all of your email threads in “conversation view” mode, meaning that every reply and subsequent email with the same subject line will be stacked (threaded) under the original email in the thread. Here’s what you need to do to turn threading off and have Gmail display your email individually, in a list, rather than threaded in conversation mode, on your iOS or Android device as well as in the Gmail web interface.
Frustrated trying to view your free Amazon Instant Videos with Prime on an iPad, or other flash videos on your iPad?

This includes a tracking cookie that Google has ‘helpfully’ given you for Google ads (that advertising by Google that is known as Adsense to website visitors and publishers, and Adwords to the advertisers who advertise in those ads by Google). based on what they perceive to be your preferences.
