Sitting on hold… Leaves me cold…

First and foremost I would like to thank all the fans of Tech Tip Tuesday for all of your kind emails letting me know how much you’ve missed Tech Tip. I am trying to come back slowly with what I think are a little more personal, laid back style Tech Tips of stuff that I use and love.

Nothing drives me more mad than sitting on hold when I’m trying to get help with something or I’m trying to get some “Customer Service”. In this, the return of Tech Tip Tuesday, I’m sharing a great service that has made that wait time a thing of the past.

Special Thanks: To the students of HVA thanks again for the awesome gift you guys are a real motivation to me, and are in no small part, my reason for trying to figure out how to get Tech Tip Tuesday back on the air… or maybe I should say back on the web.

The Magic of That Mix

With services like pandora, grooveshark, lastfm and about a billion other streaming music services, our own music libraries sometimes get ignored.

By now everyone knows that on wednesday of last week Apple’s co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs lost a 7 year battle with cancer.

Whether you’re an apple fan or an Apple hater there is no denying the impact that Steve Jobs had on the world we live in. Many have said that Steve Jobs really revolutionized the world of technology I would argue that in reality Steve Jobs has Evolutionized the world of technology.

Even with his passing Steve Jobs and Apple stand on the precipice of ushering in the next evolution of technology and in this weeks Tech Tip I’ll tell you all about it.

Feel Free to Experiment

I love to experiment with the newest services and tools that are available online. In addition I have found that selling stuff on craigslist, ebay etc is much better than having to hold a garage sale. However the only way to really use many of these services is to give them my email address or ugh in some cases even my phone number.

Luckily there are a few services out there designed specifically for people like me who want to try out these tools without giving them access to my personal info.

The “Skinny” on Health Apps

Well Labor day is officially behind us and with it so is summer . The bathing suits are no longer hanging in the bathroom, and emptying the kiddie pool has already been written on the honey do list by my wife. For me it’s always a little sad when summer is in the rear view mirror but I have to admit Fall has always been my favorite time of year. I love the leaves changing color, I love the chilly nights but the thing I love the most about fall is the FOOD. It seems like every year it happens to all of us. We knock off some weight in the summer with all of the outdoor work and play but it’s almost inevitable that we start putting it back on in the fall.

Having said that I hope you don’t mind if I take just a second here to do a bit of bragging but this week I officially reached the 60 pound mark in my weightloss. In just over a year I’ve gone from weighing in at 245 pounds to my current weight of 185. And there aint NO chance I’m going to let this fall and winter put it back on me.

Luckily I’ve got a couple tools that I’m experimenting with that will help me to make sure I don’t go back to the old oversized me, and this week I’m going to share a few of them with you.
