Google Mail: a wedding photographer's friend

My best gadget award of 2009 has to go to Google Mail. The ability to have all my work and personal emails in one place is brilliant. I also find the tabs pretty useful -  from the moment a prospective wedding photography or portrait client emails me I can tab the conversation and Gmail stores the emails as a threaded conversation just like an online filing cabinet! Plus I can read my emails on the move on my phone. I do wish that it had the facility as Outlook does to save the sender to the address book though.

I have also been testing out the Google Chrome browser over the last couple of days, and it is pretty fast in loading websites especially Flash sites. To me, it looks like a pared down version of Firefox.

A close 2nd for gadget of the year is Acrobat.com for the ability to convert files to pdf online.
