The Oatmeal and it’s genius

Posted by Pete on January 30th, 2011

I was reading through Digg’s stuff today when I ran into a link that ran into another then another and well, you know how that goes.
Anyway, I laughed my ass off on “The Oatmeal” comics for a the last hour or so.
I suggest you look around on the site, lots of funny stuff!

This is soo true in more than one way!

Best of – Adobe Photoshop Tutorials

Posted by Pete on January 11th, 2008

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!

Posted by Pete on November 17th, 2007

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!
