Tool to Help Covert Measurements

28 Oct

How often do you need to convert a measurement from the American standard system to the metric system? Why hasn’t the United States adopted the metric system? It’s seen as a hassle because manufactures have to convert packaging. Governent would need to adjust road signs and citizens would need to get rid of old measurement tools. The list for metric conversion goes on and on. However, it would make sense from a global perspective. If you need to know how to convert inches to centimeters or gallons to liters, then check out Unit Converters site.

Countdown Your Next Meeting

5 Oct

How often do you need to time something at a meeting? Do you use a stop watch? Are you grabbing your phone and scrambling to find the timer? Recently I discovered an old school looking but functional online stop watch. It works well because you can pull it up in a browser and easily toggle the controls.

Have You Seen A Freeosk?

6 Sep

Do you love free samples? Have you interacted with a Freeosk yet? If you haven’t see one, these are free standing machines that dispense the sample of the day. These samples can be anything from Rice Krispy Treats to fruity snacks, however they are only available at select locations. Long gone will be the days of ladies serving free samples on toothpicks, not enter the age of machines.

Have You Heard of Net Neutrality?

3 Sep

Do you think you should be limited where you can travel on the Internet? Recently this ability to freely surf is being challenged. So what does this mean? Wikipedia’s definition of Net Neutrality is “the principle that Internet service providers should enable access to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favoring or blocking particular products or websites.”

The common analogy I think of is turning the Internet into a cable network. You pay for the basic Internet channels like Amazon or Facebook but if you want to go to the Disney website, you will have to pay extra.

Without Net Neutrality, cable and phone companies could carve the internet into fast and slow lanes. An ISP could slow down its competitors’ content or block political opinions it disagreed with. ISPs could charge extra fees to the few content companies that could afford to pay for preferential treatment — relegating everyone else to a slower tier of service.

Net Neutrality has been considered the internet’s guiding principle: It preserves the right to communicate freely online. Recently Apple joined the cause.

Here’s a site that’s leading the cause.

Finding Places To Charge Your Car

24 Aug

Do you have an electric car? Did you know that PlugShare is a good resource for finding places to charge. You can also sign up for EVGO and Chargepoint so you can access the fast chargers. If you don’t want to sign up, then you may find charging stations at Walmarts and Dunkin Donuts. However you’ll have to check stores individually because availability varies from location to location. Where do you recommend charging your vehicle?
