Big! Exciting! News: ThinkTank Is Now at Expert Labs

Big! Exciting! News: ThinkTank Is Now at Expert Labs

I am thrilled to announce I’ve landed a pinch-me dream job: I’m now a Project Director at Expert Labs, the new non-profit headed up by Anil Dash. I’ll be in charge of developing ThinkTank. Here’s what happened. Last March I was thinking about buying a netbook, and asked my Twitter followers a question: Do you have a netbook? What do you love or hate about it? When I got back 243 informed opinions by savvy netbook owners, I knew I needed a way to easily parse...

Google Buzz: Gmail’s New Social Network Activity Aggregator

Google Buzz: Gmail’s New Social Network Activity Aggregator

Google announced the all-new Google Buzz today, a Gmail “inbox” of sorts that aggregates all your contacts’ social network activity across the web. Lifehacker’s got the full rundown. A few quickly-jotted first impressions of the service: This ain’t no Orkut. Buzz demonstrates that Google is VERY serious about social media, and just threw down the gauntlet in an attempt to take on Facebook and Twitter. However, they’re doing it by embracing...

How to Tether Your Android Phone

How to Tether Your Android Phone

There are three ways to tether your Android handset and get sweet internet love even where there’s no Wi-Fi in sight: the risky-but-free method that requires serious technical skills, the still-geeky-but-not-as-bad free route, and the $30 easy way. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each. Method 1: Tether Android with Apps that Need Root (Free, heavy configuration) The Android Wi-Fi Tether application turns your phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot–essentially a MiFi–in...

Projectview Lists Your Todo.txt by Project

Projectview Lists Your Todo.txt by Project

I’m coming up on year four of using a plain todo.txt file and a simple bash script to manage my daily tasks in it, and I still love the CLI simplicity. But this year I’m juggling several different projects, and needed an easy way to see my todo list separated into sub-lists by project. Happily, the Todo.txt CLI is now extensible, which means several handy add-ons can make it do all sorts of things not included in the core script. One of my favorites is the projectview add-on. Projectview...

Yahoo Messenger 10 Download

Yahoo Messenger 10 Download

The Yahoo Messenger team has released the long awaited Yahoo Messenger 10 final. The popular instant messenger was previously only available in beta versions with many of them leaked and not officially released by Yahoo. The new Yahoo Messenger 10 can be downloaded directly from the Yahoo Messenger website where it is available for Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh, mobile devices, Apple’s iPhone and as a web version that does not require installation at all. Several new and...

Firefox Blocking Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo Extensions

Firefox Blocking Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo Extensions

Got a surprising alert yesterday telling me two of the extensions I had installed on my PC’s copy of Firefox have been blocked because they cause stability or security problems. (Click to enlarge the dialog on the right.) Specifically, the Microsoft .NET Framework Assistant and Windows Presentation Foundation extensions were the problem children that got kicked off the island. (In my defense, I didn’t install these extensions myself–Windows Update did). My first reaction...

Yahoo Mail Notifier

Yahoo Mail Notifier

Ghacks has been pretty Gmail centric in the last year. The main reason for that is probably because there is more to write about Gmail than about other email services like Yahoo Mail or Live Mail. Could also be that Google is doing a better job at communicating changes they make to their email service. We have published a post a few days ago about Yahoo Mail login problems that some users experienced on the Yahoo Mail website. These users have two alternative options on how to connect...

Pin Tabs in Chrome ala Firefox’s FaviconizeTab

Pin Tabs in Chrome ala Firefox’s FaviconizeTab

Googler Matt Cutts tweeted a Chrome tip a few days ago that made me switch from the stable build to the developer version of Google Chrome. In it you can right-click on a tab and choose “Pin tab” from the menu. Like Firefox’s FaviconizeTab extension (a favorite when combined with Better Gmail 2 and the PermaTabs extensions), that option shrinks a tab down to only its favicon and sends it to the far left, which saves you tab bar real estate. Note that pinned tabs do...

Yahoo Meme Invites

Yahoo Meme Invites

Yahoo Meme is more or less Yahoo’s version of Twitter. It is currently in alpha stage and can only be accessed by users who received an invite from a user who is already using the platform. Yahoo Meme is different from Twitter as it offers its users more options. Probably the most exciting option is to be able to post not only text but also audio, video and images directly to a meme. Twitter users are by default left with links pointing to this content. There are a few workarounds...

Gmail Adds Custom SMTP Servers, Drops “On Behalf Of”

Gmail Adds Custom SMTP Servers, Drops “On Behalf Of”

Used to be that when you sent Gmail messages with a custom from address, there would be an “On behalf of you@gmail.com” bit added to the headers of the message because you were using Gmail’s outgoing SMTP server. It didn’t show up in all email clients, but those using Microsoft Outlook did see it, and it made your email look a little more janky than it had to. Happily, today Gmail is scrapping the “on behalf of” business and letting you associate custom...
