Tuesday Tech Tips

Posted by: on Oct 18, 2010 | No Comments

Hello my loyal Tech Tips readers.  I know it’s been a few weeks since the last Tech Tips post but that darn day job keeps getting in the way. Did you miss the Tech Tips? Wait, don’t answer that. My fragile blogger persona doesn’t want to hear the truth.  Well enough about my issues, let’s get on with it.

My inner Gmail and Google Reader geek exploded when I found out that there are now keyboard shortcuts for New Twitter.  Head on over to Lifehacker for the list of keyboard shortcuts and even a short video for all you visual people.

Speaking of Google, they seem to be popping out new products faster than HTC can introduce new cell phones.  Can’t keep up?  Apparently Google heard your cries of anguish and created Google New as “The one place to find everything new from Google“.

Got one of them fancy new itty bitty Apple TV devices?  You can now share your iTunes media libraries with up to five computers in your household by using iTunes Home Sharing.  Home Sharing is a breeze to setup so blow on over to TIPB for a quick and easy post on How to use iTunes Home Sharing with Apple TV.

Are you a runner who wants to know how far you have gone, what’s your heart rate and how the heck do I find my way home?  Engadget has a run-down on the Garmin Forerunner 210 and 410 GPS watch.

For all you MobileMe fanatics that have been hiding under a rock for the last few days, I thought I would let you know that the MobileMe Calendar beta is now out of beta and ready for the masses.  Don’t forget to read all the FAQ’s to make sure you have all the right software versions of Windows, Mac OS, iPhone, iPod or iPad before you upgrade your calendar.

And finally for all those uber geeks (like me) who love having multiple monitors, I give you multi-windowing under iOS. Say no more.
