With so many features and an expanding collection of Labs, inevitably some Gmail features get overlooked, even by the savviest user. I had no idea what "mute" or "archive" meant in the Gmail options toolbar;
I just knew that I accidentally archived several messages when checking Gmail on my BlackBerry — something about the combination of buttons I pushed would cause messages to be archived. After a few "disappearing" emails, I finally figured out where they were going.
Archiving a message in Gmail is an easy way to clean up your inbox without deleting messages. The conversation is saved — and if someone replies, the reply will pop back into your inbox. Muting a message is similar, but a little more final. If you mute an email thread, it disappears from your inbox entirely, even if new replies are added. But where are these messages actually going?

As someone who takes Facebook friendships more seriously than others, the update was a little passive-aggressive for my taste. This process, for what it's worth, is exactly what I'm trying to avoid with my strict friend-accepting policy. What do you think — is making an announcement before purging friends totally rude?

Today's question comes from reader glamourette142:I purchased a new external hard drive to back up all my music on in case my laptop crashes. As I was transferring music I noticed that I have duplicates of the same songs; is there a way that I delete files that there are two of without going though my entire music collection artist by artist?
Good news! There is a simple way to find and delete duplicates in iTunes without going through your entire library. To find out how, just read more

Since iPods are designed to be synced to one computer with one iTunes account, the answer to this question is pretty straightforward. First, make sure all of the music from the iPod you'd like to switch is backed up on your computer. If you have music on your iPod that isn't on your computer, you'll have to use a special program — I like PodWorks ($8) — to move the files from your iPod into your iTunes account.

So I have had my iPhone 3GS for less than six months and have loved every moment of it. Until last week, when I realized my headphones were only outputting to my left ear. The volume toggle still works on the right ear but there is absolutely no sound coming from the right earbud. I am just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and do you think Apple will replace the headphones with ones that work?
Have you had a similar experience or any luck getting Apple to replace broken headphones? Let us know!
