Tired of grabbing that mouse for everything you do? Perhaps it’s time to check out the 55 top Windows Hot Keys. Hot keys (sometimes called keyboard shortcuts or accelerator keys) are a set of keys that, when pressed simultaneously, perform a predefined task. You can do the same thing with your mouse but that usually requires more effort and takes longer.

These folks have put together their list of the 55 top Windows Hot Keys that will save you lots of time on the computer. For example press the “Windows + F” keys -- and Shazam -- the “Search for Files” window opens.

Print this out. Until you learn these magic keys to the point they become automatic, this list will be a good cheat sheet!

Want to find audio and video reports on the Web? This is a neat Podcast search engine that takes web audio searching to the next level. Instead of simply searching in Podcast directories by categories, these folks search the spoken words inside the podcast in order to find exactly what you are looking for.

To accomplish this they create a text index of the audio data from audio and video on the web, using speech-to-text technology. This enables them to search within a Podcast, not just within titles or metadata. The text-based search results include snippets from the audio portion to help you figure out if the result is relevant. You can even click on the words to begin playing the podcast from that point in the Podcast.

The cost is right - there is none!

Here’s a fun place. Every time you go by one of those signs in front of churches (the ones with moveable letters) we know you want to rearrange the letters to broadcast your own message to everyone who goes by!

At this great place you can, and you can choose an actual church sign, add your text, and - Shazam - a personalized church sign with your text will be generated for you! Save it, send it to a friend, put on your website, or use it however you like.

And to make it even better it’s on the house (or on the church if you prefer).

We all do it -- we carefully stash away the user manual when we get a new appliance, TV or other household or office gadget. Then, two years later, the gremlins creep in and we need that great manual in a hurry. And, of course, it has vanished like a taxi in a rainstorm!

Bookmark this place! Here you will find hundreds of user manuals and guides for a myriad of types of equipment such as mobile phones, fax machines, cameras, monitors, software, televisions and DVD players -- everything imaginable right down to hair dryers and bathroom scales.

So, if your manufacturer’s web site can’t help you, here’s a great place to go! Find your make and model, click and download the manual. The price is right --there is no cost to you for these manuals.
