Ditto clipboard manager – get your free bang of productivity NOW

Ditto clipboard manager – get your free bang of productivity NOW

If you copypaste a lot (and if you read this blog, you probably do) – then you won’t regret starting to use a clipboard manager. I use it daily now, several times a day. I’ve used it to write this post. I count on my clipboard now more than ever, and it’s like having a giant, searchable, saved-to-disk, copy of all the ‘copys’ I had in weeks. It remembers images, not only text. It has got shortcuts, for those times…

Kindle 2, in Israel

Kindle 2, in Israel

Update: Kindle can now get purchased in Israel, shipped to Israel, with an Israeli credit card, and the Israeli 3G network. There’s something I didn’t anticipate before I actually started to heavily use the Kindle. Although it seems obvious at first, the implications of books on demand are quite amazing. The thing is, it actually takes less than 5 minutes between the time you decide that you want to buy a book – to the time you can start reading…

I’m terribly sorry, but…

I wonder if http://www.imterriblysorrybut.com can become viral… If you have any suggestion on how to increase the chances of people sharing this – please let me know at the comments. On any case, the idea for this site crossed my mind a couple of days ago, so I just HAD to try it out… ๐Ÿ™‚

Watch a YouTube channel offline with your iPhone/iPod

Watch a YouTube channel offline with your iPhone/iPod

Image by Quang Minh (YILKA) via Flickr YouTube channels are a wonderful way to keep up-to-date. The White-House, TED, or some nice music players (i.e. Playing for change) – all use YouTube channels to stream some great content. Watching this content offline – could be a great use of your time in some situations… The problem is, that YouTube doesn’t offer an easy way to get this channel on your MP4 player. Lucky for me – iTunes together with RSSHandler…

ClickTale – An eye opener

ClickTale – An eye opener

Just finished watching a recording of how people surf my blog. I must admit it’s been an amazing eye opener. I can actually see how people interact with my site, what parts they read, where exactly do they try to click and exactly how my message is communicated. It makes me want to stop that person, and tell him: “Hey, stop using my site like this! Can’t you see that I meant you to click that Red Big Button on…

How BlueTooth helped me turn my Nokia into a nifty spying machine

How BlueTooth helped me turn my Nokia into a nifty spying machine

I still don’t have a GPS on my phone, but I figured out that tagging could be really fun with a GPS. I can mark areas on Google Maps, and whenever people were encountered in one of the marked areas – their MAC addresses could be automatically tagged. So the people from the Amado building in my university could automatically get tagged as a high probability of being engineers of some sort. And whenever I encountered that girl from the…

A shift to control your own data

A shift to control your own data

Some incidents that happened lately led us to think quite much about the control of our data: In the past couple of months, Facebook had decided to disable the accounts of a couple of friends of ours. In 1999, some very important files of mine were hosted on a “Free 50MB storage” service. A year later I found out that my files were taken hostage, and in order to bail them out of that company I had to pay $10….
