Question: Sometimes when I try to attach several large files to an email, it doesn't go through. I'm told the attachments exceeded the allowable limit. What should I do?
Answer: This is a common problem; we've all run into roadblocks trying to share large files by email. You can try sending the files one by one in separate emails to get around the size limits. But if you have very many files to send, this can be a time-consuming way to go. Another option is to use one of the many free online services for sending and receiving large files. Here are three of the most popular ones to consider: Dropbox, WikiSend, and Senduit.
Vine is a mobile app that allows users to film short videos — maximum length six seconds — on their wireless devices for one- touch sharing to Twitter and Facebook. The secret to Vine's success is elegant simplicity. Vines (as the short clips are known) are effortless to shoot and play an automatic loop as users scroll through their feeds. There are no editing functions; Vines appear in the raw, giving them a poignant immediacy.
Just follow these steps to get started with Vine:
