52 Seconds on Why You Should Use Evernote

I am a big fan of Evernote. Admittedly I don’t use it nearly enough but as a business card storage tool, alone it is worthwhile. Check out this official Evernote elevator pitch to see why it can help you… keep in mind that it is VERY VERY easy to use which isn’t demo’d in this pitch.

A Great Remember the Milk (RTM) App for Android

I’ve been wanting to toy around and learn the Android OS since I got my G1 phone a couple months ago. All the Google services work great on Android: GMail, Calendar, Maps, etc. However, Google has thus far fumbled on a decent “To Do” list. That’s why many people like myself are big users of rememberthemilk.com (aka “RTM”). I’m not the first person to wish for an RTM Android app. Their mobile site is okay, but a custom app is a must-have for something you use often. No one seemed to be delivering, so I made the “RTM Tasks” Android app myself (see below), leveraging the RTM API.

Since I got my HTC Dream (Gphone) I have been lost without a synchronized task list. Fortunately, a man by the name of Steve V (Vinsac I think) took the initiative and created a great app that integrates with Remember the Milk (https://www.rememberthemilk.com) – a free and awesome online tool for task management.

Just install Steve’s app called “RTM Tasks” from the Market on your gphone, provide it with RTM API access (it handles it for you) then you can interface with all of your tasks online. Very handy indeed.

Speed Up Your Computer for Free with EasyCleaner

I download lots of junk and install it and then delete it and after a while my computer is running as slow as molasses. Then the programs I do not delete end up slowing down the startup on my computer… nothing I hate more than a snail-pace startup… especially when I can remember how lightening fast the computer originally was.

Anyway, enough gabbing. I found a program that I highly recommend called EasyCleaner and it is totally free of charge – no strings. EasyCleaner is easy to use and does a number of cool things like the following (I took from the home site):

  • Finds invalid registry entries —-> deleting them speeds up your computer!
  • Finds duplicate files —-> deleting them will free disk space!
  • Finds all unnecessary files like backups, temps etc. —-> deleting them will free disk space!
  • Finds all invalid shortcuts —-> deleting them will free disk space and increase usability!
  • Manage programs starting at Windows startup! —-> who knows, you might even catch a virus before it gets serious!
  • Manage Windows add/remove software listing!
  • Easily remove Internet Explorer’s temporary Internet files, history and cookies!
  • Very user friendly!
  • Shows some interesting info about your disk space usage.
  • Very customizable.
  • Multi-language support!
  • Uses only little amount of recources while running!
  • Huge help file which gives you every little detail about EasyCleaner!
  • And much more…

Sounds hypish, I know but I can honestly say my experience with this program has been excellent – so give it a shot if you find your computer is running at a snails pace. Just be sure to set a system restore point on your Windows XP system before you run the registry cleaner (this way any mistakes can be repaired easily). Here is a link to a simple tutorial on how to create a Windows restore point.

Finally here is a link to download EasyCleaner. Just remember please, I am not here to provide tech support… do not download this unless you are willing to take the leap and learn a new program. It is a very simple program but I felt I should say that 😀
