Gmail MobileWe all know by now that Gmail kicks serious a**, don't we? If you don't, check out the details, 2.5Gb+ of storage plus google searching of your mail does it for me on it's own, but there are other features as well. All mail to me at lazylaces (link in bottom right of the page) goes thru one of my gmail accounts so I can pick it up anywhere and search it easily. I love it. I even install Google Talk on computers I use infrequently so I can get desktop email notifications where ever I might be working. Maybe you have to be a sad techie to appreciate it, but that's what I am, and it rocks.

Anyway, if it wasn't good enough already, which it was, the service has now been extended with a mobile device friendly interface. Point your moby/cell at:

The service reformats itself for whatever device you are using, or so it promises, and it seems to work from what I have experienced. I'm now picking up all my mail, web submissions, etc, on my phone when I'm away from my PC and I haven't had to go through all the awkward setting up of POP3 on a phone (I know it is, because I've tried, and failed, to get it set up before). A simply brilliant, and free, service.

If you have a Gmail account and a moby/cell I recommend trying it as soon as possible. If you don't have a Gmail account the service is by invite from an existing user only (or by txt messsage if you are in the US), but I have a whole heap of invites if you are interested. Just mail me a request (link in bottom right of the page).

Escape The Hotel
A general note to hotel owners: please make it easier to leave your establishments. We've already has to escape the hotel once, and now we find a hotel escape on the cards once again. If the health and safety inspector catches you there will be trouble, addressing this issue is in your own best interests. What should be a simple, well sign-posted task, should not be so complex that it becomes a point'n'click adventure. Thank you for listening [subbed by grosse, hooper, flooor & cana].

Grow Ornament
The Grow Ornament is a seasonal point'n'click game from the ever popular grow series. As usual it's a case of having to click the right items in the right order, although getting it wrong is often worth seeing too, this time it's very festive though [subbed by Flooor, Extremity, Sy Mirrar, Addie, Sunflower, Castor, Kurajea & Sonjita].

The Snowdog
The Snowdog is a cute little Christmas e-card, for you to play with while I get myself organised with some games after my mini posting break - in which I managed to attend, not one, but two, awesome Christmas parties, and had, not one, but two, awesome hangovers [subbed by tara].

It's A Wonderful Internet
A curiously familiar tale (!) in this flash story book that, by showing us a world with no internet, shows just what a wonderful life internet it is. There are obvious controls to interact with on most of the pages (very much like a pop up book) and little easter egg items (how unseasonal) in the pictures [subbed by delrio].

The Discovery Of Penicillin
From a point'n'click adventure about Girls Aloud to one about The Discovery Of Penicillin in one day? I'm beginning to think lazylaces is the only thing in existance without a point'n'click game about it [subbed by jackie k].

Girls Aloud Games
If you are from the UK you'll be amazed to hear that there is a Girls Aloud point'n'click game - possibly stunned that there is also a second part, but that's just what The Girls Aloud Salon and Girls Aloud In The Eskimo Club are. If you are from a Girls Alound free country just count yourself lucky, and either way, you'll be glad of the "music off" option in both games. I can't believe I just posted these [subbed by jackie k].

Fresh Arrival
The aim of Fresh Arrival is a neatly cool one - to bring one awesome thing to their readers every weekday, in just about any category you can think of... including movies, music, photography, art, home life, websites, services and much, much more. But am I being greedy, but what if I want more than one cool thing a day? And what if I want cool things at weekends too? That's not too unreasonable is it? Maybe i'm just cool-deficient and far too needy. Anyway check it out [subbed/run by richard].

Nicolas' Weird Adventure
So the basic premise of Nicolas' Weird Adventure is that you have to have a point'n'click adventure to get the escalators in the Shopping Mall working so that you can escape, because obviously you can't just walk up them when they aren't working, it's not like when stationary they become something that is almost exactly like stairs. Anyway I'm ranting slightly, but that really is weird (hence the name I guess). If I had that kind of attitude in London I'd be permanently stuck in Waterloo Station and I'd never get to work. Hang on a minute. On second thoughts this doesn't sound totally unreasonable. I may be spending some quality time in a railway station tomorrow [subbed by Aurora].

The Adventures Of Josie True
I'm fairly certain that The Adventures Of Josie True is trying to teach me something through the medium of the point'n'click game, I refuse to be taught though, but because I have p'n'c addiction I can't not play. Dammit. Oh, I already knew the square root of 81, actually this is teaching me nothing, hooray! [subbed by jackie k]

How have I not posted Steppenwolf already? Anyway, here it is now, a wrong righted. It's not exactly point'n'click as you have to use that keyboard thingumy, which, as a point'n'click devotee, you normally ignore as much as possible, but it is an adventure, and it's huge: 6 chapters of 4 episodes a piece - that's 24 episodes in total maths fans. Happy adventuring [subbed by TeJay, Buster H, Helga, Castor, May & BadBatz].
