How to go through RSS feeds quickly (and not let it eat your day)

If you’re a blog addict, odds are you subscribe to hundreds of sites.  These sites often have multiple updates, so you thought you’d go through all of them more quickly if you used an RSS reader.  Now that you have the reader, you’re still viewing hundreds of site updates a day.  How do you go […]

gSyncit brings Google Calendar and Outlook together

Like Google Calendar but use Outlook to manage your day?  That’s my problem too.  Looks like there might a solution in gSyncit:
This Outlook plug-in supports one-way or two-way synchronization (you can go Google-to-Outlook, Outlook-to-Google or both) and works manually or automatically. After installing the program, look for a new two-button toolbar in Outlook; click the […]

Open the hood and tweak Vista and XP

Yeah I’m one of those folks who likes to tweak my machine a bit.  Nothing really serious, just tips here and there to make the whole computing experience a bit better.  Everton Blair seems like the same kind of guy.
One of my goals over the weekend was to get under the bonnet of Vista and […]

The Cult of Innovation

You must innovate. Your company must innovate. If you don’t innovate, you will be gobbled up in the competitive global marketplace.
Um…maybe not.
Challenging this assumption is Dan Saffer in Business Week’s Outside Shot column (subscription required).
Innovation in and of itself, he contends, is a hollow mantra that will fail in the end because companies are simply […]

WordPerfect Lightning Beta-I’ll take a pass

I love note taking apps.  Sometimes you just want to jot something down.  So when I saw on Lifehacker a new note taking application from Corel, I thought I’d give it a whirl.
This note-management application includes four components: Navigator, a notebook-style document organizer; Viewer, which supports Word, WordPerfect and PDF documents; Notes, a basic word […]

Advanced WindowsCare Professional for Free Today Only

As you know I’ve been battling with fixing a machine for Lorraine’s bosses since Friday.  Sunday I thought it was licked and well I was wrong.  Still getting Blue Screen of Death, still unstable (rebooting and shutting down randomly).  I was getting really worried.  If I couldn’t keep the machine stable, then I couldn’t even […]

Speed up you work with keyboard shortcuts

I’ve always used lots of keyboard shortcuts and I’m kinda narked when one doesn’t exist or is inconvenient (the Control-F4 for closing windows is one that I think is a pain).  I’m surprised how often people don’t use shortcuts in their day to day work.  It really speeds up tasks (like writing) if you just […]

Let this be a reminder, check ALL the cables when something isn’t working

Got this from Chris Pirillo today:

Oh I have so been there.  I’ve done it myself, I’ve seen tons of other people do it.  Sometimes the cable looks like it’s in, but just isn’t seated all the way.  So, take it from Chris and I, check all the cables.  Then check them again.

PDF file links don’t have to open in your browser

PDF files are great.  I use the all the time and when I have a government form to fill out, I try to see if they have  a PDF version.  Well that’s great, but the most annoying features of Acrobat is that by default it opens PDF links you click on within your browser.  Firefox […]
