SwiftKey is my choice for an Android keyboard replacement.

About a month ago I started looking for a keyboard replacement for my HTC Incredible. I tried a few different apps and have decided that SwiftKey works best for me. What I like about SwiftKey is it tries to predict what I’m writing. It suggests the next logical word in my sentences and it does […]

Get more out of Twitter for Mac by using mouse gestures.

If you’re running Twitter or Mac and you have Apple’s Magic Mouse, or trackpad, you can move around Twitter for Mac just by swiping with two fingers. Best of all, there is no additional software or configuration needed. What can you do? If you hover over a tweet that is a part of a conversation, […]

What’s a good keyboard replacement for Android?

One of the things that bugs me most about my Android phone is the keyboard. It just doesn’t seem to be nearly as good as Apple’s. I’m not sure if it’s because Android’s keyboard has more keys on it, because they are closer together, or if it’s the touch screen, but it’s giving me a hard time. The […]

How to move email from one Gmail account to another.

There are a few different methods out there to move Gmail from one account to another and I’ve tried most. The problem is that they all have some sort of requirement that makes them work for some people, but not all. Or maybe they get the email, but miss the labels. None seemed to work for […]

I Think Microsoft Gave Me Tourette’s

From Internet Explorers lack of web standards, to the OS stability and general usability, Windows has some work to do. I think it’s getting better, but I also think there is a long way to go.

Saying Goodbye Remember The Milk Pro

A year ago I decided to try Remember the Milk Pro, however this year, I have decided that it’s not for me. I was trying to replace Toodledo with Remember The Milk. RTM has a nicer interface, seems simpler, a lot of people rave about it and it just felt like a good move. A […]

Jumping Into The World Of Android With A Droid Incredible

The wife and I have finally broken down and got smart phones recently and now are trying to figure them out. Ironically, we don’t feel very smart using them yet. Unfortunately Verizon doesn’t have the iPhone yet, so we purchased the Droid Incredible. It’s a very nice phone, it’s just taking some time to learn everything. I am […]

Redesigning Toodledo via Custom CSS

Toodledo is one of my favorite to-do applications. It has a great free model, a very nice iPod & iPad app, Twitter & email integration, and widgets for Gmail, Chrome, Firefox, Netvibes and such. However, even with all the nice things, the site design leaves something to be desired. And when the site design is lacking, the […]

I’m retiring from Firefox theming.

It’s been a fun journey over the past 5 years creating Firefox themes. I created nearly a dozen themes, stating with iPox, and I’ve got over 5 million downloads! However, I just can’t keep up. With Firefox 4 just around the corner, my themes would probably need to be revamped from the ground up and […]
