Friday has arrived, and not a moment too soon. I don’t want to bore you with complicated applications that will help you work better – I want to show you some tools that require very little brain function that you can use over the weekend. In this quickcast, I’ll show you 4 applications that do […]

People like to browse the web in so many different ways, and that’s why it’s great that there are so many different types of Firefox Extensions to please just about everyone. With that said, these 4 Extensions may not be for everyone, but they could be just what someone out there needs to make their […]

I’ll never forget how excited I was to receive my first Netflix movie in the mail.  Pulling apart the perforated edges was like unwrapping a gift I had already peeked at on Christmas morning – still excited as heck even though I knew what was inside.  Apparently I held quite a bit of affection for […]

Update: The CEO of Orgoo was nice enough to post this link, where you may find some more invites. Orgoo is aiming to be your one stop shop for email and IM, and they’re doing a pretty good job so far. Getting started was a lot easier than I thought it would be, so right […]

Cubescape is a site designed to make you the least productive person at work today. Seriously, it will. That is unless you have my job, in which case playing with sites like Cubescape is required. In a nutshell,  Cubescape lets you create 3-D art by simply dropping cubes onto a canvas. You can even blow […]

I have to say, whoever came up with the idea to hold a contest for the best screencasts for Firefox support, deserves a big, fat, raise.  It’s really an interesting idea and it gets people who love Firefox a chance to have their work out there to help other Firefox users.  Why do I think […]

Penzu is a great tool for anyone who really likes to write, but doesn’t necessarily want to blog about their romantic vacation with the entire world.  It gives you a way to keep an online journal that actually resembles a journal, right down to a plain white piece of paper.  Each entry has its own […]
