Big day for Android!

In this corner we have Android’s Honeycomb 3.0 preview which shows some awesome stuff.

This new software update for tablet pc’s may be the deciding factor for myself to get a tablet, as I’ve been holding off as I didn’t see the tablet as a “useful enough” tool for everyday whatever.

Also may have been easily overlooked, introducing The New Web Based Android Market, which in turn makes me a happier android user.

Best of – Adobe Photoshop Tutorials

An amazing resource for anyone who uses Adobe Photoshop.

Photoshop

When it comes to graphic design, Adobe Photoshop is usually the first option to consider. However, the software itself is a quite tough nut to crack — and definitely extremely hard to master. For instance, the concepts are not always intuitive and it’s not always clear when to use what tool and how to use it effectively. In fact, in Photoshop it usually takes pretty much time to achieve something you have never done before.

However, you don’t need to muddle through numerous Photoshop features and extensions for every design problem. You can use professional suggestions instead, e.g. professional step-by-step tutorials which provide excellent results and thus can save you a lot of time.

Jott It!

Yesterday I wrote a post that went into how great Jott was in combination with Xpenser. Today, I will tell you why Jott is one of those “gotta have it” tools on the web and the best part about this is, that it’s all free!

Jott™ is a revolutionary new service that automatically converts your voice into e-mail and text messages—anytime, anywhere, with any cell phone. Jott™ makes you more productive and efficient by capturing your ideas, notes to self, tasks, and more without using your keypad.

I’ve found Jott to be extremely helpful in a couple different situations:

  • It’s much easier to Jott someone a response instead of texting when you’re in the middle of driving / riding / running around.
  • You are out and about and need to remind yourself of something for later.
  • It’s great to track expenses with Xpenser using Jott!
  • You can use it to blog a post!!
  • You can use it with Twitter, Jaiku, Blogs, Zillow, Yahoo Groups, 30 Boxes, Remember the milk, Tumblr, and the list goes on and on! Look here!

If you are like me, it takes me way too long to text someone a response or have conversations using texting on a cell phone, Jott makes it easy, and that I can appreciate!

Did I already mention that it’s FREE?
Check out Jott for your everyday use!

Using Flock 1.0 – So far, so good!

I’ve been trying Flock out for the last couple of weeks and I want to give in my 2 cents on it, maybe it will shed some light on it for you.

So far, it’s been pretty stable for me, I like the fact that I have an overview of all my social services on the sidebar including Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, and Facebook. It does support additional services like Ma.gnolia, del.icio.us, Piczo, and Photobucket. Plus it supports several blogging platforms with a built in blog editor. Let’s not forget a Photo Uploader and Feed reader too!

There’s some interesting features that I’m not used to yet, but I do think it’s neat, like clicking on the “Media Bar” opens a strip across the top showing Flickr photos or any of your choice of media streams available online.

Flock - Media Bar

Overall, I’m finding something new to play with everyday and it’s somewhat refreshing dealing with a different browser. I’ve downloaded Flock in the past, but it was just too buggy to continue using, although this time around, it’s more stable.

It’s a free download, feel free to try it yourself.

Google Android Videos

Google’s new mobile platform, Android, may revolutionize the way we use phones tomorrow. Here are a couple of videos demonstrating how Android works.

Cool apps that surprise and delight mobile users, built by developers like you, will be a huge part of the Android vision. To support you in your efforts, Google has launched the Android Developer Challenge, which will provide $10 million in awards — no strings attached — for great mobile apps built on the Android platform.

MSDOS 5 – Microsoft

Let’s talk about the nerd era.. better yet, let’s watch it.

From YouTube:

Found this in the back room of my old job. It was titled “YO MS Raps!” MS-DOS 5.0 was the first version available in a retail package. Looks like MS spent a few $$$ to produce the effects in this video to promote it.

Skype 2.0 Beta for Linux – Now with Video!

Skype’s new release for Linux includes video chat! It’s nice to see strong development on Skype for Linux as Linux is becoming more of a mainstream OS than ever before. I don’t use the video option that much myself, but it’s good to have the feature if I need it.

This release is not just a revolution for us in Linux, but a revolution for the Skype world at large. No longer are we, the people of Linux, prevented from socializing in the same way as our peers.
