Chromebook Power Up!

If you have a computer running the Google Chrome OS you might find this useful. Maybe Google Docs are missing a feature you really need. Well you can have access to the more powerful features of an Open Office or Libre Office. Also many other freeware Windows / Linux based programs. Check it out at https://www.rollapp.com/. You will find that you will give up some speed running these apps, but it's worth it if you need the features.

Home Page News

I miss my Google homepage. It was a place where I could quickly see News, Weather, Sports, E-mails, and Facebook all on one dashboard. Well good news! I found a replacement. One that tries to mimic the iGoogle page and comes pretty close. It's called igHome http://www.ighome.com.


You can drag and drop the widgets to place them just like the iGoogle page only igHome seems even easier. I'm just getting started but within a few minutes I had an acceptable page set up. News, Weather, E-mail, Facebook, Linkedin, and Google+. Try it out and let me know what you think.

Talk To Your Computer - Now!

It may seem like science fiction but the day is coming when you will interface with your computer via speech. This change has begun. Having a computer understand human speech is a very complicated task. Primarily because people speak in so many different ways, and various quality levels. Still some of the most talented people on earth are working on the problems. I think you will see a day when the keyboard is only used for very special applications. Maybe you've noticed it happening already. I talk to my car to place hands free calls. Do Google searches using voice search.


I need to work with Siri on the iPhone & iPad. Don't wait for this technology to come to you. If you can speak clearly you can start using it now. If your using the keyboard effectively you had to learn to type. The mouse took some getting used to. That whole vertical to horizontal conversion thing. Why wait for speech recognition to come to you? Start learning to talk to your computer today!

Air Droid an Android App You May Want

I installed a new app on my phone this morning. It's called Airdroid. It allows you to access everything about your Android phone from your browser on your computer (so any computer with internet access should work Windows/Mac/Chromebook/Linux). The screen looks like this...



In the picture I'm sending a text via my phone but using the keyboard on my computer. I also pulled up pictures, and my contact list from my phone onto my computer screen in my Chrome browser. After installing, running the app, and signing up on your phone. Just go to http://web.airdroid.com/ on your browser and sign in. Your phone is quickly accessible from your computer.
