Today, I’d like to cover Incredimail. I discovered it many years ago. The download is free, but it has a small ad banner at the bottom of the emails you send out.

Fishbowl Smoothly Brings Facebook to your Desktop
18 Dec 2009

Social Networking Fishbowl is a trial application built using Facebook’s public API and developed by uxlabs@Microsoft. “It’s a ‘lab showcase application’ which means that it’s available for download by technology enthusiasts and Facebook power users but it’s not a ‘real’ supported product.” If you’re an avid Facebook user like me I’m sure after reading this, you’ll be ready to give ...

Kneel Before the Mistress of Mistakes

Kneel Before the Mistress of Mistakes
18 Dec 2009

Blogging Edgy, huh. Two weeks ago I posted a blog here with the word flagellation in the title, and it seemed to work pretty well. At least if Google analytics is to be believed.

For the first few months of my blogging experience I tended to hit the PUBLISH button ...

My Top Five Chrome Extensions
17 Dec 2009

Software & Programs As Charnita covered a few days ago, Google Chrome (for Windows) has extension support and the floodgates have opened to new, interesting ways to extend the functionality of Google’s browser. As a long-time Chrome user, this has been a very exciting time for me and I, as well as many others, have gone a bit crazy installing new extensions. Part of this is the excitement and part of this is because it is so easy to do, not even requiring a ...

What Makes The Perfect Theme?
17 Dec 2009

WordPress Themes I recently confessed to being a theme-a-holic, and I’m not the only one. For theme-a-holics, it’s not simply the lure of shiny new web stuff that makes us change themes regularly. It’s also the never-ending quest for the perfect theme. But what exactly makes the perfect theme? Here are my WordPress theme must-haves. Easy To Use Ease of use is at the top of my list and over the years I have seen WordPress themes improve in this ...

Is Your Newsletter Compelling Enough?

Is Your Newsletter Compelling Enough?
16 Dec 2009

Writing How many newsletters do you sign up for in a month? How many do you unsubscribe from in the same month because the content just isn’t good? I’ve read hundreds of articles about sending out newsletters and the main advice in these articles is that the material must be compelling. It’s often the writer’s of these articles that have the least compelling material in their newsletter. Go figure. In my opinion, a newsletter is ...
