Thanks to the Internet, if there’s something out there that you need to do but you don’t know how to do it, there’s some website that will provide you with the answer. Need to add RAM to your Mac? Try iFixit. Want to make a pinhole camera? Go to Instructables. And now, if you want a little bit of everything, there’s Snapguide.

Snapguide is a social guide service that allows anyone to put up their own instruction manual to do pretty much anything, then draw comments from the world at large. But is it a social network or just another how-to resource? Let’s find the root after the break.  (more…)

I am quite the fan of OmniFocus, the GTD app for the iPhone, iPad and Mac, because it’s helped me sort out all of the crazy things in my life. After all, I’m not just the editor of this very site, I’m also a writer for other places, a father and a husband, so there’s quite a bit of things that need doing throughout the day that if I don’t capture somehow, I’m just going to forget. It has absolutely changed my life for the better.

But when the iPhone 4S came out complete with its own Reminders app with Siri integration, I wondered if I was going to have to work that into my system, and how the heck that was going to happen. Turns out that I didn’t have to think about it for too long, because now OmniFocus and Siri can work together in harmony. I’ve been using the system for a month or so now, and I’ve got to say, it’s super sweet. Let me walk you through the process so you can get an idea of how it works.


I hate going to the gym. I think it’s boring and expensive. I don’t really question its effectiveness, because it actually is, I just don’t like it.

Now, we all need to stay in shape one way or another, and being an iPhone user, I prefer the more technological approach. The App Store has lots of apps made for jogging, tracking calories and so on, but RunKeeper may just be the perfect solution. It used to be a paid application (and rather expensive I should add), but has recently gone free. After the jump, we’ll be learning how to use RunKeeper’s features to our advantage.
