Queue music into Rhythmbox from Nautilus

Queue music into Rhythmbox from Nautilus

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Nautilus is one versatile file manager. The ability to add actions (with the help of Nautilus Actions) makes Nautils’ ability seemingly endless. I have covered adding actions to Nautilus before (see my article “Add actions to extend Nautilus functionality“). That article covered an earlier version of Nautilus Actions. Now that this tool has matured quite a bit, I thought it wise to revisit the topic and show...

Librarian, Windows 7 Libraries Management Tool

Librarian, Windows 7 Libraries Management Tool

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Libraries have been integrated into the Windows 7 operating system by Microsoft, to provide users with an option to manage files residing in multiple different directories. That’s for instance helpful if videos, photos, or music are not stored in just one directory on the system, but in multiple locations. Users have options to create new libraries, and add storage locations to existing libraries. That’s however not...

Steve Jobs on Flash

Steve Jobs on Flash

Steve Jobs’ open letter “Thoughts on Flash” is a win for the open web, and a logical and well-articulated discussion of why Apple won’t allow Flash on the iPhone and iPad. Hooray. But. While Jobs says he refuses to put his products “at the mercy” of a third party, that’s exactly what Apple asks of all its iPhone app developers, to take the chance that Apple won’t distribute their work for arbitrary reasons (they might “confuse”...

On Tweets in the Library of Congress

On Tweets in the Library of Congress

Published my first opinion piece on CNN.com today, in which I argue it’s a great thing that the Library of Congress is archiving billions of public tweets. Despite some parentheses trouble and unclickable URLs in the story (I’ve alerted my editor), I’m proud of how the piece came out, even though CNN.com commenters seem to think tweets are a waste of storage space. Thanks to @matty_g, @Jason_Pollock, @Swiftsfan, and @itwalkabout for the example tweets in the story. Who...

Correcting Kindle E-Books on the Fly

Correcting Kindle E-Books on the Fly

A few months back I bought Brian Tracy’s Eat That Frog–a great book about beating procrastination that I cited in a recent Fast Company video–on my Kindle. Today I got an interesting email from Amazon. To quote: We’re writing about your recent Kindle purchase of Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time by Brian Tracy. The version you received contained some errors that have been corrected. An updated version of Eat That...

Windows 7 Library Tool

Windows 7 Library Tool

The Libraries are a new addition in Microsoft’s latest operating system Windows 7. They have basically evolved from the MyDocuments folders which were limited by the fact that they lined to one absolute location on the computer system. Libraries on the other hand can combine and display the contents of multiple locations which is very helpful if photos, videos, music or documents are stored in different folders or even on different hard drives. Libraries are by default however limited....

Fill Every Last Megabyte of Your iPod’s Free Space

Fill Every Last Megabyte of Your iPod’s Free Space

When you sync your iPod/iPhone in iTunes 9 and you’ve got space left, check off the “Automatically fill free space with songs” box on the Music tab to use every last free megabyte. As David Chartier at The Finer Things in Mac site notes, there’s no way to see what songs iTunes pulls and adds there for you. I’d like to think it uses some sort of smarts to determine what songs you haven’t synced that you should have. Either way, nifty feature for quickly...
