Project Music

Or, more specifically, music for your projects. Clearly, I’m not talking about a manufacturing project here, but, rather, music for your creative project. Maybe you have a dream project that you’ve filmed on your iPhone and want to add some cool background music to your creation before uploading it to YouTube.  Or, maybe you need […]

Wallpaper From Above

Or, better living through data mining satellite imagery. Seriously. I’m not a big fan of the goofy, “Web 2.0”, startup-app naming convention that drops vowels out of words to make domain names, but, in this case, I’m going to make an exception.  Mostly because it’s free, but also cool, in spite of the name.  Besides, […]

Expense and Tax Tools

So, it looks like I’m going to be an independent contractor for a bit. And, that means tracking expenses and tracking billable hours, as well as the taxes I have to pay on that.  Since I’m an iPhone user, that means that, yes, there’s an app for that.  Or, ten apps, actually.  From eWeek, Ten […]

Secret Phone Menu

No, I’m not talking about ordering take-out. Have you ever wanted to get to the hidden parts of your phone?  You know, those secret commands that technicians use to get your phone to give up its deepest, darkest secrets?  Well, if you’re an iPhone user, you’re in luck!  Yahoo recently shared all those with the […]

A “New” Way to Prevent Photo Theft

No, those quotation marks aren’t ironic. Last year, in August, I wrote about a free service called LensTag that would help you track your camera gear if any of it went missing.  Well, they’re back in the news for another service!  This one was discovered by accident by their president’s wife who mistakenly turned on […]

Create Ebooks from Webpages

Okay, this isn’t exactly a new idea, but it’s still worth sharing. I got this from Lifehacker back in 2012, but I’ve been behind in my link sharing, so I’m just getting to it now. The idea is simple.  Reading on-line is rarely the best, most comfortable, most convenient way to keep up with all […]

2048

No, not the year the world will end. I’m not that kind of crackpot. No, in this case, I’m referring to the incredibly simple, but addictive game; 2048. The premise is simple; just double the value of tiles until you reach 2048.  The tiles start out with either a two or a four on them […]

Photography 101 by Canon

Well, I’m back. Blogging, and writing in general, is like having a case of scabies; it’s a persistent itch that just will not go away! In any case, I’m safely married and my blushing bride is hard at work on her business, so I’m back at the blog and other writing projects.  Right now, I’m […]

Tile Tools

Today I finally replaced the downstairs shower door, like I’ve been meaning to do since before I got engaged!  Seriously! I know Sharon asked me to do it, too, but I’ve been meaning to tackle that project since I moved into this house more than twelve years ago.  Crazy. In any case, these two tools […]

Against Digital Sharecropping

I like being free and independent. I like the idea behind Instagram, but not the proprietary nature of it. I don’t like giving up my rights to work I create.   Even when it’s just a little photo of a little moment captured with my iPhone.  I dislike, as Nicholas Carr called it on his blog, […]
