March 20, 2013  |  All Things Digital

Q: Is there a way to delete a Gmail account? A: Yes. First, go to your Google accounts settings page, found at http://tinyurl.com/bm78c8y . Next, click on “Products” at the lower left. A page will open listing all the different Google products you use. Click the small “Edit” link next to the words “Your Products.” When the next page appears, find the phrase “Delete a Product” at the upper left and click on the link that reads “Remove Gmail Permanently.” Follow the instructions. Google’s text on this page says “Within two business days of your request, your…mailbox will be closed and all its contents will be permanently deleted.” However, Google warns that: “Residual copies of deleted messages and accounts may take up to 60 days to be deleted from our active servers and may remain in our backup systems for an additional period of time.” Q: Is it possible to route Comcast cable channels from the Comcast box through the new Roku 3, which has earphones you plug into its remote? We want to use earphones while on our noisy workout machine. A: Roku says the answer is, unfortunately, no.
