There’s nothing worse than opening up your contact book to see tons of email addresses that you don’t care about or don’t remember emailing because Google automatically saved them to your address book. In my case, I use Cragislist. A lot. So imagine my frustration when I see 50-100 “firstname.lastname@example.org” email addresses in my contact book.
And imagine how frustrating it is to have to constantly go in and clear that contact book out? I’m not sure what took so long, but Google has FINALLY given users the option to disable the pesky feature. You want to hurry up and take care of this right away, don’t you? Simply login to Gmail, head to the “General” tab under settings, and it’s as simple as clicking a radio button. Do it now – your contacts list will be forever grateful. [via Lifehacker]
