About Heinz Tschabitscher

Heinz Tschabitscher has been writing about email, communication and useful technology since 1997.

First, How Does This Sound?

The smell and feel of an inbox freshly emptied.

The flood of happy endorphins as you understand something new.

The rising chuckle of a surprising connection.

Yes, you may have to pick two out of the three—and the choice might not be entirely yours to make.

Hi! I’m Heinz Tschabitscher,

and I do aim to provide you with the above (at least). It is a pleasure meeting you!

Since 1997, I have been writing about email, communication and useful technology at,, Lifewire and here at La De Du, always from the user’s point of view.

So, what will you find here?

  • Step by step instructions (say, on using multiple signatures in Gmail) that leave nothing out and include screenshots where useful with content that is well researched and tested to work.
  • Reviews (say, of online time zone converters) that focus not on new features but on how useful a product or service is for a given purpose.
  • Explanations that bring technology to life, because the deeper you dig, the more interesting even the mundane often becomes.
  • Irreverent drawings (say, of a fox evidently subscribed to the La De Du newsletter), of course.
