Anyway, without further ado, here are the Top Three Things I Discovered Today!
First stop… Microsoft. Yes, I know. I’ve heard it all before. But occasionally they do something right, like Windows 7 or the thing I discovered this morning: SkyDrive. It’s a service of Windows Live, so you do have to sign up for that. But SkyDrive gives you 25 gigabytes of free online storage!
I can’t help it, being a man, I forget stuff. Usually stuff my wife has told me to do, which leads to all sorts of trouble. I’ve tried writing notes to myself, but I lose most of them. Especially the ones about things my wife has told me to do. So, along comes Remember the Milk, a web services devoted to helping me remember my to do list. I can get reminders through email and on my cell phone. Which is the same way my wife reminds me of things!
Years ago, I used to fall asleep to music. Then I started buying CDs with an hour of recorded nature sounds: You know the ones, with the sound of the surf at the beach or a jungle at night. But during this morning’s voyages, I discovered Rainy Mood. The website streams a thirty-minute loop of a heavy rain storm. Just the thing to help me drift off to sleep or drown out the drone of the office when I’m on deadline!
I don’t make this stuff up folks: it comes to me in a box made out of mud and straw. So go out there and enjoy the internet. Just make sure your anti-virus is up to date and don’t fall for any spam, hoaxes or Trojan horses!
