Hi Steve, Your video on printing gmail calendar is very helpful. But I do have a question on a printing issue I have.
I would like to print one day only (which I can do) BUT I need the description of the hourly events/appointments printed too. Is that possible? Or is the only way to view the full description on each hourly event of the day is to refer back to Google's calendar and open each event to view?
+dottotech Thanks! I will help myself! :)
Goals in google calendar is a great idea. But it still seems a bit rough on the edges... or my android version is just old :\ Still on old lollipop. Might be that.
Hi Steve! I really appreciate your videos -- thanks so much! I have a question for "Ask Dottotech" as well. I recently started a new job that uses Outlook as its email client (PC-based); I had been using Gmail (Mac-based) for my personal email/calendaring system. Do you have any suggestions on streamlining these two systems? For example, I currently have a personal calendar in Gmail and a work calendar in Outlook -- yet, this seems inefficient and I don't like bouncing between two calendars, in two systems. For email, I will likely continue to use Outlook for work and Gmail for personal. Any strategies for effectively managing these two systems in parallel would be welcomed! Kindly, Heather
Hey, great video. I was wondering if you have figured out a way to change the timing for the goals. I am trying to set a goal to go running in the morning. However, it has automatically set my goal to 8 am. Then i manually changed that to 6:30am. However, it continues to keep all the other entries for running at 8 am. please could you tell me how i cant get all my running entries in google goals to start at 6:30 am please?
on a Galaxy 5, running Android 5.1.1, similar problem as "Fresh Water Ministries" except my + button is in the lower right. When clicked on, I don't get choices but directly open up a new calendar/task event screen.
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
