Posted by: on Jul 22, 2010 | One Comment

Happy Tuesday everyone and welcome back to Tuesday Tech Tips.  What? It’s not Tuesday?  Okay okay. I was a little busy on Tuesday plugging the HR Technology Conference & Expo via my Old Spice satire post. So for this week we have Thursday Tech Tips.

I see a lot of Android love tweets out there these days and for the 3 people who are actually using Google Buzz, Louis Gray has discovered that Seesmic for Android Add Support for Google Buzz.

I know many of you have turned on your Windows computer only to find out the darn thing won’t boot.  Most likely you were out of town at a conference and didn’t have easy access to your Windows setup disc.  Well guess what?  Windows 7 pre-installs a nifty recovery utility right on your hard drive. Head on over to Paul Thurrott’s SuperSite for Windows to read all about the Window 7 Recovery Environment.

Well, well, well.  It looks like Apple is finally rounding out its Bluetooth functionality for the iPhone.  In the upcoming iOS 4.1 release, Apple delivers AVRCP Stereo Bluetooth controls. Now you will finally be able to use all the buttons on your Bluetooth device to control your music.

In other iPhone news all you Audible lovers can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Audible has finally arrived on the iPhone.  The app is iOS4 multitasking enabled and is now in the App Store.  Head on over to TUAW to read more about the Audible iPhone App.

Hold on to your propeller hat my fellow geeks. For those of you who love to run multiple Operating Systems on the same computer, Lifehacker has details on a USB Flash Drive utility called MultiBootISOs that lets you boot from the USB flash drive and choose the OS you want to run from the flash drive.

Do you have excessive disposable income and a need to acquire every known gadget? CrunchGear has tracked down for you the Portable Watermelon Cooler.  It’s a little pricey ($230) and is only available in Japan at the moment but if you really, really, really need to wheel around a cold watermelon maybe you can figure out how to get one through customs.

    weird that japan would have a portable watermelon cooler that holds round watermelons, i thought they grew square watermelons there (so efficient!).
