Do you ever get links in your emails and wish you didn’t have to follow them. You need to see the video or read the article, but you just don’t want to take the time to switch away from your Gmail tab and load a new page. There’s a feature in Chrome called in-line previews that will actually embed content from links to popular web services, but it’s only experimental as of yet and supports a dreadfully small list of sites.

If you like the idea of in-line previews, but want more out of it, you need to try the Chrome extension iFramely. Amit Agarwal of Digital Inspiration explained in a recent article that with this extension installed, an emailed link becomes the content it links to. A link to a video becomes the video; a link to an article becomes the article. You get to see whatever your email links to without ever leaving your inbox.

If you send a lot of links to your friends, make sure they know about Iframely.

    Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

    Does technology have all the answers?

    This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

    Creating technological solutions transparently

    This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

    Technology as the connecting tool

    Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.
