HootSuite Finally Comes To The iPad!

image

HootSuite is now my new best friend when it comes to Twitter applications. The interface is clean and easy to understand and I can manage all my social networking sites in one app. I have been using HootSuite (free) on my iPod Touch and online for some time but couldn't take using it on my iPad in the iPhone mode......but no more. They just came out with an iPad rewrite that is glorious.



How Do You Use Your iDevice?

image

I just discovered this in iTunes developed by Apple. It is a continuing series of interviews with corporate execs talking about how they have integrated iPhones and iPads into their businesses. I love this type of thing. By watching and hearing how people from all walks of life are using iPhones and iPads, I get so many ideas for all those people that ask me why they should buy iStuff.



Problem Solved!

image

I use my iPod Touch for all my media listening. I listen to podcasts all the time....more than I listen to music. I listen when I am driving, exercising, working outside, waiting for my wife while she is shopping.....like I said, all the time. My biggest frustration with every set of earbuds I tried, was that every time I took them out to talk with someone, all I could do was hold them in my hand or stuff them in my pocket. I would also have to pull out my iPod and pause it.

I am a podcast addict. I admit it. There is no 12 step program for me so I indulge and I am better because of it. I listen to podcasts, watch video podcasts, watch instructional videos....I can't get enough.

It seems that browsers are getting alot of attention recently. That may be in part because they have finally come into their own.



It's Still Hurricane Season, Stay Informed

We are almost to the end of another hurricane season and so far, it hasn't been all that terrible. Full disclosure here, I am writing this from Vermont and hurricane season is never terrible here, but I still watch with great interest.



Never Miss What Was Being Said Again

image

Imagine this.....You are at a meeting or seminar, and you are distracted by the guy next to you who is talking with the lady next to him. You have missed some pivotal point that was being made because you were listening to the blah, blah next to you....

what the speaker was saying is gone....

Now imagine this.... not only do you have the notes you were taking, but you also have a recording of what was being said at that very moment, and all you have to do is tap on your notes and you can hear what was being said that you missed.
