If you are a regular reader of our blog, chances are that you love Apple (and Appletoolbox too). As much as we love Apple, there are little things, which we think could be handled differently.
One such thing is the “Sent from my iPhone” line that goes with every email you send through your iPhone.
Honestly speaking, it used to look cool in our 2G’s & 3G’s letting people know that we have a premium brand. But we wonder now why a company would want its commercial attached to every email sent from its device and even more than that, why do people still keep it there?
We are not the best self-help shrinks but Let’s find out:
#1. Not sure how to take it off
It’s hard to believe but there are many loyal iPhone users belonging to this category of “I don’t know how to…”. They want to change the “Sent from my iPhone line” but just can’t figure out how. The later part of this article is going to show you how to change that.
#2. Hey you! I’ve got an iPhone
Let’s agree to the fact that there are many in the world who can’t afford an iPhone. The gadget is undoubtedly a bit expensive. Whether the price is justified or not is another debate but there are many in the world who crave iPhone. And when they succeed in getting one, they tend to show off a bit. Nothing wrong with that, we say!
#3. My emails might have errors
We generally don’t expect our written communication these days to contain any sort of spelling or grammatical errors. However, writing an e-mail while jogging in the park is more likely to contain errors. This is where “Sent from my iPhone” line comes in handy for some. It tells the reader that this email was sent from a phone and the reader should not complain about typos and bad grammar.
#4. Perhaps I’m a little bit lazy
“I don’t like the line, I know how to take it off, but I will do it tomorrow”
Professionally speaking, these tag lines attached to your email doesn’t paint a pretty picture of you. They show how lazy you are, and probably a person who doesn’t give much attention to details. Now, that hurts!
Here’s what Mark Twain has to say about writing,
