Modify Firefox for Your Netbook

Modify Firefox for Your Netbook

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Finally gave into my netbook lust and got an Eee PC. (It’s for my better half, of course. Ahem.) But since it’s not the most minimalist browser on the market, I had to modify Firefox to trim down extra UI bits and make it more netbook-friendly. Over at Lifehacker this morning, I published my full list of userChrome.css tweaks that maximize Firefox 3.5’s viewing area on netbooks. (adsbygoogle...

My SXSW Interactive Panel Proposal and Picks

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Voting for SXSW Interactive panel proposals closes end-of-day tomorrow, and your little green thumbs-up counts for 30% of a panel’s chance of actually happening. Here’s the panel I proposed, the one I’ll be on (if it’s voted through), and others I’ve voted for. My panel proposal: How’d They DO That? Secrets of Web Superstars –a thinly-veiled excuse to interview my online idols...

August Recap at Harvard Business: Whiteboards, Business Cards, Google and Bookmarks

August Recap at Harvard Business: Whiteboards, Business Cards, Google and Bookmarks

Been wearing my virtual business suit over at the Work Smarter blog at Harvard Business Online, but been remiss in posting my articles here. Here’s a recap of what I covered during August: Instantly Transcribe a Whiteboard with Your Cameraphone — using Evernote and Qipit Forget the Business Card. Just Google Me — meant this post a bit more tongue-in-cheek than most commenters took it, but still a strong believer in the importance of your name Google-ability Should Your...

TWiG Tip: Click To: to Launch Gmail’s Contact Chooser

TWiG Tip: Click To: to Launch Gmail’s Contact Chooser

On each new episode of This Week in Google (details) I’ll highlight a tip for using cloud/Google apps smarter, faster, and better. I’ll document those tips here. This week Gmail engineers added a richer contact interface for filling in the To:, Cc:, and Bcc: fields when you’re composing a new email message. While address auto-completion has been available for some time now, the new Contact Chooser lets you check multiple recipients off a list. Click on the To:, Cc:,...

Import Facebook Phone Numbers into Your Google Contacts

Import Facebook Phone Numbers into Your Google Contacts

Android users with Facebook friends who list their phone number in their profiles will love this: Brad Fitzpatrick offers a Greasemonkey script that exports those phone numbers to AddressBookr and offers to add/merge them into your Google Contacts. Even though this was posted last November, I just gave it a test run and it worked like a charm. Thanks, Nick!

TWiG Tip: Icon-only, Perma-Tabs for Gmail and Google Reader

TWiG Tip: Icon-only, Perma-Tabs for Gmail and Google Reader

On each new episode of This Week in Google (details) I’ll highlight a tip for using cloud/Google apps smarter, faster, and better. I’ll document those tips here. You use Firefox, you keep Gmail and Google Reader open at all times, and you wish they didn’t take up so much space in the tab bar. (Maybe you’re on a netbook, or maybe you’ve always got a dozen tabs open at once, so real estate is scarce.) You can permanently affix the Gmail and Reader tabs in...

Twitalytic Alpha Preview–Archiving, Curating, and Threading Tweets

Twitalytic Alpha Preview–Archiving, Curating, and Threading Tweets

Been hacking away at a personal programming project, tentatively named Twitalytic, a web application that archives your tweets and mentions and gives you useful data about your friends and followers on Twitter. (Here’s some background on why the heck I’d ever want to archive the ephemeral chatter that is on the Twitter.) Anyway, after a few months I’ve collected a teensy bit of data, so I wanted to make sharing replies to my lazyweb tweets easier. To that end, today I...

Google Tip: Navigate Items with J and K in Reader, Gmail and Search

Google Tip: Navigate Items with J and K in Reader, Gmail and Search

On each new episode of This Week in Google (details) I’ll highlight a tip for using cloud/Google apps smarter, faster, and better. I’ll document those tips here. The J and K keys navigate through lists of items in Gmail, Google Reader, and even Google search results–without getting the mouse involved, which saves you point-and-click time. J goes to the next item down the list, and K the previous. J and K aren’t easy for your brain to remember, but they are for...

“It’s Not As Bad As You Might Think”

“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.)

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...

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...

Psychological Distance Increases Creativity

Psychological Distance Increases Creativity

A new study indicates that imagining something is farther away than it is–either geographically or in time–changes the way your brain perceives it and actually increases creativity.

Apple Blocks Official Google Voice App, Pulls GV Mobile from App Store

Apple Blocks Official Google Voice App, Pulls GV Mobile from App Store

TechCrunch got this headline just right: Apple Is Growing Rotten To The Core: Official Google Voice App Blocked From App Store. The second half was originally “and It’s Likely AT&T’s Fault.” Apple’s withheld approval of the official Google Voice application and pulled the unofficial GV Mobile app on the grounds that they “duplicate iPhone functionality.” If TechCrunch is right, once the AT&T exclusive deal is done, this will likely change....

Enforced Dancing Boosts Morale and Shortens Meetings

Enforced Dancing Boosts Morale and Shortens Meetings

Writer Dominic Ali came up with an unusual way to make office meetings more bearable–one that would make Ellen proud. In the comments of my recent post about meetings, Ali says: At my previous job, I once took on a temporary acting communications director role. All of a sudden, I had eight people reporting to me. To keep impromptu meetings short, I instituted Dance Meetings. By playing some funk at low levels through my computer speakers, I’d encourage my colleagues to dance....

How Twitter Got Hacked

How Twitter Got Hacked

TechCrunch runs down step-by-step exactly how a hacker broke into Twitter employees’ accounts and gained access to over 310 confidential company documents (and generally caused them hell). Lesson to be learned: Use strong passwords (and DIFFERENT passwords for every service you use), change them often, and use impossible-to-guess secret questions and answers. I recommend (and use) KeePass for helping you do just this. Continua a leggere – Original Link: How Twitter Got Hacked Technorati...

How to SMS with Google Voice from Any Mobile Phone

How to SMS with Google Voice from Any Mobile Phone

Just because you don’t have an Android phone or BlackBerry doesn’t mean you can’t text from your cellphone using your Google Voice number. If you’ve gotten an invite to Google Voice and you’re an iPhone or non-smartphone user, you might be disappointed about not having clear access to the texting feature. However, you CAN use Google Voice SMS capabilities on any phone. Even if you do have an Android phone or BlackBerry, you can use this method to use the native...

Better Gmail 2 Updated for Gmail’s Label Enhancements

Better Gmail 2 Updated for Gmail’s Label Enhancements

Google’s recent improvements to Gmail’s labels broke one of Better Gmail 2’s most-loved features: Folders4Gmail. Folders4Gmail displays labels with slashes in them as subfolders of a parent label, and I must say, I’ve missed it a whole lot this week. Luckily, rockstar userscripter Arend v. Reinersdorff updated Folders4Gmail to work with Gmail’s new drag-and-drop, hide-and-show label mechanism, and I just posted his new version in the extension. Grab the newest...

When Social Networking Becomes Self-Incrimination

When Social Networking Becomes Self-Incrimination

What I love most about my friend Penelope Trunk’s Twitter feed (and all her writing) is that it’s raw, personal, and hilarious. But I imagine getting served with legal documents that involve a printout of it wasn’t so hilarious.

It’s iPhone 3GS Release Day

It’s iPhone 3GS Release Day

Jason Chen’s excellent review of the iPhone 3GS banished any doubt from my mind that Apple wasn’t kidding about that S: it does stand for capital-S Speed. (Just watch those side-by-side video clips.) But, for a whole lot of folks, the S does NOT stand for savings. As for me, I’m sticking with my HTC G1 running Android. It still has a better native Gmail client than iPhone 3.0. (But I’m not bitter about all that speed or anything.) Continua a leggere – Original...

System Update: Gravatars and Facebook Pics Now Showing

After six months almost 1,000 readers have registered for a commenter account here at Smarterware, either using Facebook Connect, OpenID, or just by creating an account. Obviously SW readers are the best-looking commenters on the internet, so it’s about time we see each other’s faces. After a little WordPress hacking, I’ve added Facebook profile pictures and Gravatar support to comments and user profiles, plus a few other tweaks that help you get to know your fellow...
