Blog: Technology As An Organizing Tool
2008 In Review

One thing about writing a blog about technology is the speed at which information changes!

A couple of the tools I blogged about over the past year, Blog Friends and I Want Sandy, aren't even available any more, and it wouldn't surprise me if there are others that have escaped my notice.

My opinion about some of the products I've recommended has changed as well:

The site hasn't been updated in several years, and it contains broken links and outdated job postings. In addition, the designer did not consider cross-browser compatibility, and the site doesn't display or function properly in Firefox. The Jobseeker Desktop works in Internet Explorer, but not the way you might expect it to. For example, the Job Inquiries section where you enter the details about your applications doesn't include fields for contact information. Instead, that goes in a separate Contact section, and there's no way to cross reference them.

Although I still love the concept of this product, I've found my Dell Inspiron 9400 sluggish on too many occasions to mention, and based on the number of Dell-related errors I'd experienced when shutting down, I suspected it to be at least part of the reason. After my friend from Doctor PC confirmed this, I uninstalled it (despite having several months left on my subscription) and replaced it with AVG, and my computer is now smokin' fast, the way I would expect it to be.

I'm not saying Norton isn't a good product my husband runs it on his Dell Vostro 400 and it performs just beautifully but I am now very cautious about recommending it to others.

After a love-hate relationship that lasted several years, my Pocket PC finally bit the dust this past spring. Of course, it is now obsolete, and there are much more exciting gadgets available, such as iPhones and all different types of Blackberrys, but I'm so rarely on the road that I really can't justify buying one for myself.

In 2009, I plan to share more tips and techniques for using Microsoft Outlook and other "standard" technology tools, as well as discovering more products and websites for organizing specific aspects of your business and your life. I hope you'll join me!
