Someone should write an app that works like an FTP program... like Goliath or Transmit or what have you. When you upload a file, it logs onto your Gmail account and e-mails that file to yourself. Immediately after completing the upload it retrieves that new mail and stashes that message in a folder. That way you don't need to see all these "Upload:" messages in your inbox. File retrieval would be simply a list of available attachments in that folder. Blah blah blah. The only problem is that Gmail doesn't have user definable folders (yet?). <br><br>Cool idea? Impossible? Just thinking out loud. You could even use my face as the icon. Man, that would be awesome! I expect the finished product on my desk by 6pm. Get on it!<br><br>

Gmail uses labels, so your app could have graphical folders that represent what email attachments are filed where. <br><br>

Okay, I'll admit, my knowledge of hip hop puns isn't as vast as yours. I'm spent after the icon and g-thang.<br><br>

I'm all tapped out after that one too. I guess we'll quit before we descend into Ned Flanders-esque levels of unhipness. <br><br>
