It appears like Windows 8 and the new Outlook 2013 is going to reorganize my (and probably your) digital life by making “online things” easier. I’m one of those power Gmail users, but that said, I was planning to switch to Outlook.com ever since they launched the service. I struggled a lot to find a reason to switch to Outlook.com from Gmail as I love everything about Microsoft. But since no other web mail service currently matches the features of Gmail I was forced to stick with Gmail itself.
But the past several weeks, I spent numerous hours configuring things here and there to find a perfect alternative to Google services – Google Calendar, Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive, Google Reader, Google Tasks and more – which I currently use. My digital life
is was all about Gmail. It’s actually Gmail and not the Google search which glues me to most Google products as they’re all tightly integrated.
