Susie gets an email on her BlackBerry/laptop! 4. The email reminds Susie to apply facial sunscreen and informs her of the weather and the daily UV index. 5. The email also provides Susie with a Google form in which she can track her sunscreen use - even from her mobile phone! 6. Susie puts sunscreen on and fills out the easy Google form straight from the reminder e-mail. 7. Susie tracks her progress (and her sisters' progress) through the link at the bottom of the email to the Google form results. 8.
