When Can We Meet?

Coordinating schedules can be a challenge, this is exacerbated when calendars are not shared. As a consultant, my company calendar has to be my one source of truth. Scheduling meetings within our company isn’t a challenge since we can see each other’s availability. This is not true when you are trying to coordinate across most companies. There are… Read More »

Bye Bye Google Reader, Sniff

Google Reader has been in my stable of tools as long as I can recall for aggregating stories across a variety of blogs, about 170 at the moment.

Well, with sufficient arm twisting we might pop out a cover or two. The last few years we’ve tried to goal ourselves with… Read More »

Google Voice In Gmail

I knew that Google had made and update recently that integrated Google Voice with Gmail but I had not experienced this feature until last night. What a useful and wonderful surprise that was… I was working in my office at home and had left my Droid upstairs. I started hearing a “ringing” sound that was unfamiliar and realized… Read More »

Apple Magic Trackpad

Squeak, Rattle, and Silence…

Ever since I removed the center console side pillars and other items to put in my Craven shift well, I’ve noticed an increase in rattles in the cabin. I’m okay with that since I know that a sporty suspension is not necessarily a smooth ride. MINIHERO is rougher than some because of the lowering springs currently installed. I… Read More »

Not too many options and for me, interesting lighting was the best approach. Below is an example of one… Read More »
