Work Smart Video: How to Stay Productive on the Road

Work Smart Video: How to Stay Productive on the Road

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I’ve travelled to 9 different cities already this year and I’ve got 4 different major work projects going on, so keeping on top of everything on the go is something I’ve had to get good at out of necessity. This week’s Work Smart video is a question from Daniel Beck, a work-at-homer like I am, about how to not let your whole organization system fall to pieces once you leave your (home) office. I was lucky...

Work Smart Video: How to Take Effective Meeting Notes

Work Smart Video: How to Take Effective Meeting Notes

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); The second season of my Work Smart video series at FastCompany.com premiered yesterday, with a question from Suhasini Kotcherlakota about how to take better meeting notes, and some answers from me and Brad Isaac, who wrote a great piece on mind-mapping meetings at Lifehacker a few years back. Despite the fact that I still can’t watch and listen to myself on film without cringing, I am so pleased with the results. Adam...

The Software Buttons You Love Pushing

The Software Buttons You Love Pushing

Spent several hours running around town doing tedious errands the other day in neighborhoods I don’t know well, so I was thrilled to finally tap the “Navigate To->Home” button on my GPS when I was done. It got me wondering: what are the software buttons you just can’t help but love to tap, click, or press? An informal poll on Twitter unearthed a bunch of good ones: your email’s Out of Office “Enable” button, “End Call,” “Mark...

Get Windows and Office Super-Cheap

Get Windows and Office Super-Cheap

I’ve long been a subscriber to Microsoft’s Action Pack which is for small businesses.  You get 10 licences for Windows and Office plus a Windows Server licence or two for £220 a year.  Plus the software never expires. Many people say that subscription software is the way we’re all going but I’ve been making significant savings for years now by subscribing to Microsoft software, and there’s an ever better way to save money, as Paul Thurrott has written...

Lessons from Apple on Advertising and Aesthetics

Lessons from Apple on Advertising and Aesthetics

Steve Jobs announced the iPhone 4 yesterday in his WWDC keynote, and it’s a gorgeous device with software upgrades that include multitasking, a video chat app called FaceTime, and more. I’m still a happy Android user, but I have to hand it to Apple. They continue to school the industry on aesthetics and marketing. Case in point: the FaceTime demo video. First, some background. I got a Sprint EVO at Google I/O which has a front-facing video camera, and presumably the ability...

Online Privacy: Check Yourself (Before You Wreck Yourself)

Online Privacy: Check Yourself (Before You Wreck Yourself)

Maintaining your privacy online isn’t as simple as Pirillo puts it, but his tweet made me laugh, because it’s such an important point. Awareness and prudence are more critical than any piece of software or privacy setting when it comes to protecting your personal data. Over at Fast Company this week, I took a stab at the most important things you can do to protect your privacy online. It’s common sense, worthy of repetition. Online Privacy: Check Yourself (Before You...

Microsoft Office 2010 Download And Evaluation

Microsoft Office 2010 Download And Evaluation

Should you make the switch to Microsoft Office 2010? If you are not sure yet you could download the latest version of Microsoft Office Professional Plus to evaluate it for 60 days. Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 is the top of the line edition of Office 2010. It is the only edition that contains all Office modules and therefor best suited for testing and evaluation purposes. The Office 2010 evaluation version comes with restrictions that everyone should be aware of before downloading...

Happy Birthday to the Shell Script That Runs My Life

Happy Birthday to the Shell Script That Runs My Life

On May 12, 2006, I hacked together my first bash script that was more than a dozen lines and published it on Lifehacker. todo.sh manipulated a todo.txt file at the command line using grep, tail, head, sort, and cat: all the shell-based text tools that I knew and loved. Back then, in Lifehacker’s heyday, I was obsessed with the simplicity and portability of text files, mostly because Danny O’Brien featured them front and center in his original life hacks talk. Since then, Todo.txt...

MSOCache Folder Information

MSOCache Folder Information

You might have noticed a MSOCache folder in the root directory if you have selected the option to view hidden folders in Windows Explorer. Microsoft Office creates the folder during installation to cache files that are needed to install Microsoft Office. The folder is not needed to run Microsoft Office and can therefor be deleted safely. It has to be noted however that Microsoft Office will first use the files from that folder if the user activates the repair option. A deleted folder means...

Spokeo is the New Creepy People Search Engine

Spokeo is the New Creepy People Search Engine

Spokeo is the new people search engine that’s freaking users out, because when you “spokeo” yourself there’s a good chance you’ll find your home address, phone number, interests, gender, occupation, wealth level, marital status, photos, and more. The search engine compiles information from public records and public social media network pages to put together a pretty complete profile of individuals. My local news station ran a piece on Spokeo and profiled...

How Networks Transform Culture

How Networks Transform Culture

In the past three months Anil and I have been to events in six different cities talking about Expert Labs and how the White House used ThinkTank to compile feedback on the Grand Challenges initiative. At Fast Company’s Innovation Uncensored event in New York City last month, Anil absolutely killed it in a 12 minute presentation that hits the nail right on the head. Press play to check it out.

Latest Videos: Passwords, Voicemail, Syncing, and More

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,...

What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

What Android Apps I’ve Got Installed–And You?

New and aspiring Android users often ask me what apps I have installed on my Nexus One. The list changes pretty often–especially when Leo and Jeff recommend something good on TWiG–but for the most part I keep my Applications menu pared down to just the stuff I actually use. Thanks to AppBrain, I’m now syncing my list of installed apps to the web for easy sharing and updating. Here’s the complete list of what apps are installed on my phone right now. To the left...

Microsoft Outlook Social Connector

Microsoft Outlook Social Connector

With Google’s plans to include Buzz in Google Apps for enterprise customers, Microsoft needs a way to get social media into Outlook, and the Outlook Social Connector add-on seems to be it. When Office 2010 ships–in the first half of this year–it will have support for Facebook, MySpace, Windows Live, but–oddly–not Twitter. Here’s my review of the current version, which integrates LinkedIn contacts and news feeds with Outlook 2003 and 2007 now: Microsoft...

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Mark Pilgrim’s excellent exposition on the “tinkerer’s sunset” (an idea Alex Payne put forth in his iPad piece I linked earlier) got me thinking about the nature of tinkerers, and whether the iPad really represents a sunset for them. The optimist in me thinks it couldn’t even if it tried. First, know that I fundamentally agree with Alex and Mark: the closed nature of the iPad turns me off, and I wouldn’t give one to my kid if I were encouraging her to...

Google Versus China, According to Twitter

Google Versus China, According to Twitter

Google says it’s taking “a new approach to China” and will stop censoring search results there, even if it means they have to shut down Google.cn and their China offices. The announcement is a huge deal, and it set off some fantastic insta-commentary from tech writers on Twitter. My favorite, shown above, is courtesy of Joel Johnson. More inside. Most people’s reactions were emotional, proud, celebratory: Others dug deeper or cracked jokes. From a friend who...

“iPhone’s for Sheep; Android’s for Geeks”

“iPhone’s for Sheep; Android’s for Geeks”

David Pogue says an ardent army of “Fandroids” attacked his mostly positive Nexus One review with the same mouth-foaming irrationality as Apple, Microsoft, and Linux fanboys of years past. Crazy people saying crazy things on the internet aside, Pogue makes a good point: Android has come to represent a kind of hacker counterculture, whose members dismiss the iPhone as closed, proprietary, and designed “for dummies” and sheep. I thought Pogue’s review was well...

Prices To Buy Microsoft Office 2010 Revealed

Microsoft Office 2010 is currently offered as a beta version for anyone interested. We have published Microsoft Office 2010 download details and information about the various editions in the past but the prices to buy Microsoft Office 2010 were not revealed by Microsoft back then. A Technet article published at the official Microsoft Office blog details now how much consumers have to pay to buy one of the Microsoft Office 2010 editions. Microsoft will release four different versions of...

Forbes on Google Apps in the Enterprise

Forbes on Google Apps in the Enterprise

“Google now has 1,000 of its 20,000 employees working on enterprise products, largely Apps. Four hundred are engineers; most of the rest are involved in sales and support, a high proportion at engineer-dominated Google. The enterprise is still dwarfed by Microsoft, which makes $19 billion from the office suite. Still, 2 million businesses have signed on to use Google software in its short life, drawn by cost, speed, collaboration and control.” Continua a leggere – Original...

Microsoft Office 2010 Beta Downloads Live

Microsoft Office 2010 Beta Downloads Live

Microsoft Office 2010 Beta downloads have been active for a few days for MSDN and Technet subscribers. Everyone else did not have a choice but to wait until Microsoft would enable public downloads of their latest Office software suite. Downloads have finally been activated for the public and are now available on the official Microsoft Office 2010 Beta website. The strange thing here is that the download link that was reported a few days ago is still not working. Downloads can on the other...
