I do believe that Internet Bubble 2.0 has just experienced its New Coke moment 🙁
Last Thursday Google broke my second gmail account. Hat tip to Gizmodo for …
Guess what? There’s a better way. And it’s super easy. You just need to enable multiple accounts.
I found “easy” a bit tedious. You click on the tiny “options” wheel in the upper right, which brings up the “Preferences” window. Click on the link titled “Google Account Settings” near the upper right of this. This brings you to the “Account Settings” page; the fourth of five items in the vertical list “Personal Settings” is “Multiple sign-in”, click “edit”. This brings up the “Sign in to multiple Google Accounts” page. Click the “on” radio button, check all four boxes to agree to all the parts of Google that break when you do this, and click on “save”, bottom left.
You have now enabled a baffling dialog that allows you to eventually have both your gmail accounts up at once.
It’s that simple 😉
