    3027008-inline-56tvoukSpeed reading must be a sport, and if it is not, Spritz will certainly make it so. The company is developing the tools to help readers read faster, by eliminating the reader’s need to move their own eyes. In fact, Spritz recommends relaxing a bit more… in order to allow the app to lull you into faster reading.

     

    According to Spritz, the software application helps users by changing word positioning – all words are now center aligned onto the reading space. Visually, this helps the eyes by eliminating the need to follow a sentence, or a paragraph, or perfectly manicured spacing. Sorry, poets.

"Mobile Ads Displace Porn as Best Source for Mobile Malware - AppNewser"

  • fake avMalware is following us from our computer to our phones – so much so it’s now easier to obtain malicious malware from any mobile ads, even if you’re not using your phone to watch porn.

     

  • Mobile satellite company, Iridium, has a new product on the market that could signal the demise of cell towers as we know it. Iridium Go! is a personal mobile hotspot that draws signal from satellite WiFi to bring you the internet wherever you go – globally. It’s like having a personal cell tower.
     
     With Google internet balloons, Facebook internet drones, and Iridum Go! – we think mobile dead zones will certainly be a thing of the past. Of course, that means the pricing should be reduced from its current $875 price tag.

     Notebooks’ formatted documents are stored as HTML, not as RTF. HTML is more flexible and can be viewed on any device and platform with any standard browser. You can edit those documents on your computer with HTML-capable applications like TextEdit, Word, Pages, and – of course – Notebooks for Mac

  • The styles are CSS1 which are common for HTML and not too hard to create and modify. Notebooks provides a few pre-installed styles, but you are free to add you own. (If you have a favorite style that you want to share with others, please let us know so we can put it into our download area or even include it into Notebooks!)

  • A few days ago, my laptop died. Since I usually work from 5 different computers, that usually wouldn’t be a huge deal. Except I’m on the road, and the other 4 are sitting uselessly at home.

    Fortunately, I’ve shifted nearly everything to the “cloud.” While an iPhone will never replace the functionality of a desktop, I can still hobble by. It’s not catastrophic. At least not completely.

    For that reason – and others – I recommend you makes as much use of cloud computing as possible. Here are my most valuable tools:
    Web-based Email

    Of course, it’s Gmail. There’s no contest – this is the hands-down best email service anywhere. Some of you may say “of course!” while others maybe have never even tried the service. Do yourself a favor and switch. Once you do, you’ll never go back.

    With Google Apps for business, you can still have your branded email (you@example.com) while using the Gmail interface.
    Web-based Documents

    Since I use Gmail exclusively, it’s only natural I use Google Docs. I stopped using Microsoft products about 2 years ago, and switched to Google Docs for everything. It’s far easier for sharing files with others, collaborating on documents, and tracking changes.

    If someone sends me a file, I”ll upload it to Google Docs. So it also acts like a file storage system.
    Web-based Scheduling

    And to round out my suite of Google Apps, I use Google Calendar for all scheduling. You can export, sync, and access this on many devices, so it’s very convenient for me.

    Scheduling meetings is often very time consuming – so many back-and-forth emails – so you may look into a tool such as Tungle to make the process easier.
    Web-based Project Management

    For a very long time, Basecamp has kept my life a little more sane. From one dashboard, I can track milestones, updates, deadlines, and files. It’s great if you work with a team of people – especially if they are not all in one location.
    Web-based Journaling

    I’m trying to use Twitter more and more for keeping track of thoughts, story ideas, and questions. The stream-of-consciousness format is helpful: I can go back and review what’s happened the past week…
    Web-based Bookmarking

    I come across so many great sites and pages each day, it would be a nightmare to record them all in an organized fashion. Fortunately, Delicious makes this all very easy.

    It’s still valuable to use browser-based bookmarks, and I use Xmarks to sync my bookmarks across all my computers.
    The Bottom Line: Switch to Google Apps

    My life would be so much harder if it were not for Google Apps. All email, documents, and scheduling takes place there for me.
