Latest Videos: Passwords, Voicemail, Syncing, and More

The best part about my Work Smart video series at Fast Company is that I get to cover my favorite, classic digital productivity problems with the latest and greatest solutions I know in a whole new medium. In the past five installments I addressed some old and new issues any tech savvy digital worker encounters: keeping track of passwords, wasting time leaving and listening to voicemail, being a productive freelancer (or just work-at-homer), syncing files across all your computers, and, for fun, a few things you didn’t know your cameraphone can do. Hit play on any of the 2-3 minute segments inside. Taming Your Voicemail in Two Easy Steps Leaving voicemail and listening to voicemail is painful. There are some tricks for skipping right to the beep, and never having to suffer through a long-winded message from Uncle Bert again. Here’s the full video transcript. Freelance Survival Skills “How do you work at home and actually get things done?” It’s not easy, but in this video I share some of what’s worked for me.

TWiG: The iPad Episode

TWiG: The iPad Episode

This week’s episode of This Week in Google included my friend Matt Haughey . Because we recorded on iPad launch day, the conversation inevitably centered around the new device, which I didn’t buy. A live viewer told me I looked a little bored at times–and I’ll admit, since I didn’t have one of the toys to play with myself, I kind of was. Still, it was a fun discussion full of iPad love, even though Jeff Jarvis had a little morning-after regret .

“The Swype package you installed does not match the screen size”

“The Swype package you installed does not match the screen size”

If you tried out the excellent (and unofficial) Swype beta for your Nexus One–the keyboard replacement that makes touch-typing much easier–you may be getting an annoying popup about how the Swype package you installed doesn’t match the screen size. I love Swype so much I’ve been putting up with the error for weeks, constantly dismissing it. Turns out a better version for N1 users kills the error. I uninstalled my error-prone version and installed this one yesterday; happily there are no more errors.

Never Use Hotmail Inactive Webmail as Your Secondary Email Account

Never Use Hotmail Inactive Webmail as Your Secondary Email Account

Registering for an account at any web site almost always requires an email address, and some people like to use a secondary address they don’t really care about instead of their real email address to avoid spam. If you do this, don’t use a Hotmail (Update: or other free webmail) account. Microsoft shuts down Hotmail accounts that haven’t been logged into after nine months. So if you registered for your Gmail account two years ago and used your Hotmail address as your secondary email address and never logged back in, you’ve put your Gmail account at risk. Here’s how: If your Hotmail account gets shut down due to inactivity, someone else can open a new one using your Hotmail address. Then, if that someone else requests a password reset from Gmail, it goes to that address, and that someone can get into your primary email account. This is how Twitter employees’ Gmail accounts got broken into last week. From Hotmail’s help section: Free Windows Live Hotmail accounts become inactive if you don’t sign in for more than 270 days or within the first 10 days after signing up for an account. After an account becomes inactive, all messages, folders, and contacts are deleted
