Techno-lutions for 2014

So all year long you have been hearing about and reading about all the "nerd" things you should be doing...  Well with Y2K.14 just around the corner, here are 3 MUST MAKE AND KEEP technology resolutions...

1.  Get Evernote!  It will change the way you work.  If keeps everything (bookmarks, full web clippings, notes, Voice Memos, pictures) and lets you build web pages on the fly and search/organize your notebooks...  Works on all platforms: web, iOS, Android...FREE and easy!



2.  Get off a full OS... Try to do as much as you can from your mobile device (tablet or handheld) or Chromebook.  Many of use no longer need a full OS (Windows 7/8 or Mac 10.9).  Further you don't need Microsoft Office...  Most tools that you need to be productive exist on the web...for free!  Browser Based and App-centricity are the way to be... 

3.   Get out of the Dirt! Moving to the cloud has SOOOOO many advantages!   We don't have to (and shouldn't) keep all our files on our hard drive.  Too many people come to me with their damaged equipment and ask for help in recovering files from a damaged hard disk...  Using Dropbox, Drive or Skydrive are FREE and EASY ways to "keep a hot copy" somewhere besides your box.


btw, the best Police Album...


Becoming less dependent on the device in our hand lets us be more flexible with any device in our hand.

Here is to an exciting year full of who knows what's next...
