New Video Series: Ask Me Anything About Working Smarter

New Video Series: Ask Me Anything About Working Smarter

Thrilled to announce I’m prepping to shoot a new Q&A video series for Fast Company . Work Smart 2 will be a question and answer consultation with viewers and readers like you. If you’ve got a burning question to ask me about tech and productivity, this is your chance. Here’s how it works: 1. Email me at worksmart@fastcompany.com or leave a comment here on this post with your question. Topics might include things like email overload, mobile apps, cloud computing, productivity, or anything related to working and living saner, smarter and more efficiently with tech tools. 2. If we choose your submission, you and I will schedule a video Skype consultation where we record your question and my advice. I’ll even call in some of my best tech-savvy expert friends for help. 3.

Android 2.2 Screenshots: My Favorite Features in Froyo

Android 2.2 Screenshots: My Favorite Features in Froyo

Android 2.2 (code-named “Froyo,” the next alphabetical installment of dessert-named releases after Cupcake, Donut, and Eclair) is now rolling out to Nexus One handsets . If you’re tired of tapping and re-tapping the System Update menu item and getting nothing, you can update your N1 to 2.2 manually. Lifehacker runs down how . This method worked perfectly on my T-Mobile Nexus One, but I hear reports it does not work for the AT&T Nexus One. The manual update method does NOT work for the Droid, EVO, or any other Android handset that I know of. (Correct me if I’m wrong in the comments.) Android 2.2 has three marquee features: built-in tethering/portable hotspot capabilities, Flash support, and noticeably sped-up JavaScript performance in the web browser. ( Update: Oh yeah, there’s Microsoft Exchange support, too.) There are several more subtle interface improvements as well. Perhaps my favorite is the most simple: a revamped homescreen dock, which you can see at the bottom of the screenshot here.

“But Is There Internet on a Submarine…?”

“But Is There Internet on a Submarine…?”

Apparently the U.S. Navy is on the social media bandwagon, because this Friday they’re taking a gaggle of San Diego tech bloggers–myself included–out for a day trip on a Los Angeles class nuclear submarine . This thing is the length of a frakkin’ football field, descends between 650-950 feet under the sea, and comes equipped with a few Tomahawk cruise missiles. The nerd in me is very excited about seeing a sub in action, the claustrophobe in me is terrified, the peace-loving hippie in me is conflicted, and the skeptic in me wonders why the U.S. Navy’s taking bloggers out on a junket. Guess I’ll find out! My co-submariner Mitch has all the details of the upcoming trip ; photos (of the unclassified stuff) to come this weekend. Update: Here’s the local news segment on the trip .

“It’s Not As Bad As You Might Think”

Like Bing, this might be the most passionate thing we can say about Windows 7 . (For the record, I’m looking forward to upgrading to Win7. However, just putting Vista’s sins behind us is indeed a low bar .)
