Don’t Forget To Reply

6 Nov

How do you remember to reply to someone on email? Do you find yourself forgetting? The trick I do is hit reply on my phone to start a response, hit cancel and then save as draft. Then I go back later when I am ready and complete the drafts. Then I send them all at once. I have heard other friends use flags and go back. I tried this method too but the draft box method has worked best for me. How do you not forget? Do you respond immediately?

eCigarettes for Teens?

5 Nov

Are your teens experimenting with ecigs? I saw this Akron Children’s Hospital video that discusses how e-cigarettes work, as well as some of the potential hazards of their use. Dr. James Fitzgibbon, director of adolescent medicine at Akron Children’s Hospital, talks about how electronic cigarettes may be finding a new audience.

Your Size Is Medium

21 Oct

Did you know that the creator of Twitter has started a new site called Medium? It reminds me of Twitter – instead you create a story instead of a tweet. The idea of Medium is you share ideas and stories that are longer than 140 characters and not just for friends. You create little stories to say what’s on your mind. Sound like Twitter? Perhaps!

WikiSummarizer

17 Oct

Don’t have time to read an entire WikiPedia entry? You should then try something that quickly summaries Wikipedia articles. WikiSummarizer is your answer because it automatically summarizes Wikipedia articles. The result is a summary that presents the most important points of the original text.

WikiSummarizer reminds me a game we played in improv acting called Half Life. In the game, you would start out with 4 minutes to tell a story. Then you would do it again with only 2 minutes. Then tell it in 1 minute. Then tell the story in 30 seconds. Then tell the story again in 15 seconds.

Even a 2-year Old Can Use It

14 Oct

The iPad is designed so even a 2-year old can use it, how do you fare with it? As technology continues to press on, Apple remains true to simplicity by keeping their mobile devices easy to use. Is the iPhone 6 plus a step in the wrong direction? Have you moved from an Apple mobile device to Android and back or vice versa? Why do you choose your mobile platform? Is it based on price?

How To Setup Select Ringtones

7 Oct

How do you set up only certain ring tones to ring for some people and none for others? One way to do it with the ringers is have a ringtone that is completely silent. Set that to be the default ringtone, and then assign a normal ringtone to people you want to hear from. The drawback is that you may miss calls that way, but sometimes that just makes the most sense. Here’s a link that explains one way to do it. You can do it with GarageBand, but the link below looks much easier. Thanks to Mike Kimmel for the information how to do this trick.
