Apple – Web apps

leave a comment »

Apple launched a page similar to apple.com/downloads that lists all the “applications” available via online for the iPhone. These are mostly pages that have been reworked and optimized for the phone. The still rely on the internet and so still slow down with bad connectons. Nevertheless, having these all in one place is nice.

Trackbacks explained (finally)

Engel’s blog addresses trackbacks in a simple, easy to understand way.

He starts out by telling us that “For a long time I had no idea what trackbacks were or how to use them. “
I felt the pretty much the same. Actually, I knew what the concept was, but had never got around to actually using them. Well, I start now!

Better Life Forum – 20 Procrastination Hacks

The better life forum has what seems like a great list of ways to stop procrastinating. I say it looks great, because I haven’t actually gotten around to reading it yet.

One of my favorites from the title:

“Put public pressure on yourself. The power of the deadline is best when combined with public pressure. If your boss, or a group of people, want something in by a certain date or time, you are more likely to bust your butt getting it done. If there isn’t any public pressure on a task, create it — email someone and promise to have it done by a certain time, and ask him or her to check on it at that time just to make sure you do it.”

Anything To Avoid Posting

leave a comment »

So, I finally decided to start posting again today, and ended up spending the last 6 hours tinkering with themes.  I still can’t find one I really like.  I should really blog about why, but I’ve run out of time! I’m seriously considering dumping everything to a private blog so I don’t have to worry about what I say and then selectively exporting posts to a public one (or two, or three). Most likely, though, I’ll just lose interest again!
