If you have a one person or very small office (or know someone who does) we’ll bet you’ll love this! Here’s a chance to sound like a major corporate operation because, when someone phones in to you, they will hear the sounds of voices, phones, computers, file drawers closing – in short all of the hubbub you’d expect to hear at a thriving office.

These folks have produced two sound tracks (“busy” and “very busy”) that you can download. When clicked these sound files make your tiny office sound like a giant of the industry.

Or as the Wall Street Journal said you can “ -- make your quiet office sound like it’s bustling with activity.”

Go big time for less that the price of a couple of gallons of gas !

This neat trick builds a pipeline (they call it a “Tube”) from your computer to any computer in the world. Once installed it immediately builds secure synchronized connections between your desktop and the desktop of your friends, family, business associates - any computer including any others you use (office to home).

Anything you drag and drop to a “tube” is whisked to the desktop of anyone you choose - and vice versa. This is a neat little service. It’s easy to use and handles huge files (up to 2GB).

Oh yes, put your wallet away - it's on the house!

Did you ever wonder exactly what a software license agreement or web site’s privacy statement says – but downloaded the software or wandered on into the site without reading the 6 pages of Gobbledygook? We’re sure you are not alone – who wants to read through pages and pages of boring text?

These folks have developed a little program that will analyze the wording of a license agreement and summarize the significant highlights –in a flash. All you do is open the program and copy/past the license text into the text box and click “Analyze”. In the blink of an eye the summary appears alerting you to possible dangers and saving you interminable and excruciatingly boring time spent wading through the document. The software is specifically designed for license agreements but appears to reveal items of concern in privacy statements also.

And if you download it for personal use there is no cost for this time saving tool.

What if a plain sheet of paper became your computer screen? What if a pen connected the paper world to the digital world?

Picture yourself taking notes during a meeting or lecture, your pen records the conversation and digitizes your notes, automatically synching the ink and audio. Later you tap the ink and the pen replays the conversation from the exact moment the note was written. Then you upload the notes and audio to a PC where they can be replayed, saved, searched or sent.

This scenario is no longer “what if”. These folks are giving us a peek at the future of computing and promise to deliver that future in just a few months. Worth a visit!
