It’s time to unfollow, unfriend, and simplify.

I love social media, email, apps, and all the wonderful things on the internet, but I also love my offline projects, nature, and my family. Lately I feel I’ve gotten stuck in my phone and it’s time to get out. Time to change the focus and spend more time on other things. On things that […]

Turning into a nice standalone app with inline images.

Twitter’s website has a lot of nice features but it’s not really a Twitter app that most people think of. However, with some CSS and JavaScript you can take all the features of, add in some additional ones, and make a pretty nice app. The first thing I did was create a Fluid app […]

The truth behind Facebook and your privacy; it’s you, not them.

Facebook is the largest social network, if not the biggest site overall, and privacy is a big concern. Privacy is not just up to Facebook however, you are in control of your Facebook┬áprivacy and you are also the biggest security hole. First, the golden rule of the internet: If you don’t want people knowing something […]

Is it: Internet FTW or WTF?

Every day there are three things I have to check out. First, what’s up on Twitter. So many tidbits of information, links and pictures. Then I head over to Facebook to see how those kids are doing. And no day is complete without posting something to one of my many WordPress blogs. Since Facebook, Twitter […]

I’ve removed Facebook and Twitter from my phone.

In my quest to make my Android perform better I decided to try uninstalling both the official Facebook and Twitter apps from my phone. My Droid Incredible only has 412 MBs of memory with about 80 free MBs. I really don’t understand where it’s all going. Most of it goes to the system, I think, […]

Change Your Password Before Someone Else Does

I recently got an email from a friend of mine who was vacationing in London. They were writing to tell me that they were mugged at gunpoint and their wallet, cell phone and all their money was taken. Now they were stuck in London with no way to pay the hotel bill and no way […]

Do Everyone A Favor And Share The Source

It’s a little bit annoying when you follow a link on Twitter or Facebook only to be taken to a site that summarizes the story, then makes you click though to the source with the full story. I think we need to do everyone a favor and share the source. Don’t get me wrong, there […]

Where are the iPad Apps?

The iPad was released over 5 months ago, on April 3, 2010, and we’ve yet to see some of the biggest iPhone apps be updated to take full advantage of the iPad. The biggest Twitter app was Tweetie, which then turned into Twitter and has a ton of fans. However, it’s still absent on the […]

While Waiting For Tweetie 2 Mac, Check Out Echofon

A lot of us have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting for Tweetie 2 for the Mac, but it hasn’t come. Whereas Tweetie 1 is very nice, things like list support is missing. So, while waiting for Tweetie 2 for the Mac to arrive, I check out Echofon and haven’t turned back. Echofon is a […]

It’s Time To Take A Social Media Chill Pill

I think it’s time we all started thinking less and just enjoyed social media more. I know I for one have to relax a little myself. You see, I now have all these Twitter followers; like 700, and I try to impress them all. Some are friends, some are co-workers, some are industry professionals, some […]
