Business Email Nov 9, 14, 6:41 p.m.
After a decade of using MT's email, I've been advised to move my company's email to a 'business' email. Their suggestion was Google Apps or Outlook 365.
Anyone have experience with those (on a business level)? Pros/cons?
Phone Cameras Sep 25, 14, 6:56 p.m.
Just about time to trade that old 4s in for something new.
They all seem, more or less the same. The only thing I see, that I care about, is the camera.
Anyone know of a phone that shoots high frame rate besides the iPhone? I'd be quite happy to move beyond Apple, if there was an alternative.
Online Printing Jul 25, 14, 10:24 p.m.
Looking for economical printing for large/jumbo postcards (or something simple, won't be mailed).
Anyone try Vista recently? I've always shied away, but they are cheap.
Others I am looking at:
Moo.com (their Luxe cards I had made were 'ok', not as impressive as I had hoped) and Modern Postcard (decent experience 8 years ago).
Any others? These will not be mailed out. Quality is most important.
Mockups May 27, 14, 7:23 p.m.
Looking for some quality mockups for logos, business cards, web, etc.
Free would be nice, but quality is more important.
(Google is showing me a billion, I see that, but one good link would save a headache or two :-) )
Surface Pro 3 May 20, 14, 9:13 a.m.
I think I am just about ready....Photoshop touch version shown....sounds good to me.
Standing Desk May 14, 14, 7:15 p.m.
There were some links to standing/moving desks a while back, but I can't seem to find them (surprise, given QBN's wonderful search feature!).
Anyone has some of the links?
Ad/Commercial Photographers Mar 19, 14, 9:53 p.m.
Who are some of your favorites?
Looking for polished, well-edited, advertising/commercial photographers (lifestyle, automotive, etc.).
I am familiar with Joel Grimes, Dave Hill, Erik Almas...looking for any examples/sites that I may have missed.
Images like this:
Gmail photo colors Mar 16, 14, 5:15 p.m.
Is this a known problem with gmail - photographs do not display correctly (colors are off). Both the preview image and when you enlarge look horrible.
Same email in Yahoo or Outlook look fine (preview sucks in Yahoo too, colors are off/desaturated, but look fine when you enlarge).
Notes: same image sent from Gmail looks fine in Yahoo and Outlook, so Gmail isn't changing anything, just making things look bad.
Viewing in Chrome.
(I've noticed Dropbox does the same to the images and had to stop using it for my photography...back to emails via Yahoo)
Monitor Stands Feb 1, 14, 11:54 a.m.
Looking for a clean, simple, attractive (at least not ugly) monitor stand for my Dell 30".
Time Keeping Jan 7, 14, 7:12 a.m.
Anyone have a good, simple software (for PC) for keeping track of time?
I need to keep track of others time and give them something simple to use to report/track.
Toggl (https://new.toggl.com/#) seems pretty good, anything else?
Note takingon iPad Sep 27, 13, 11:40 a.m.
Looking for a good, simple app for note taking.
Ideally, something I could type and use a stylus to draw any little diagrams
Yahoo Mail Down Sep 5, 13, 7:19 a.m.
Is anyone else having problems with Yahoo's mail? I can't login to any of my accounts (goes right back to homepage, no errors, etc.)
PDF Editing Aug 30, 13, 6:36 a.m.
Looking for a simple (ideally free) program to edit PDF's that have security/password.
I just need to add notes/comments and would prefer not to have to go back to clients.
Funny that I can use GoodReader on my iPad, but can't use Acrobat. Annoying, really.
Photo Viewer Jun 30, 13, 8:41 a.m.
What is everyone using for quick previews of images? I liked the simple Windows Photo Viewer, but on my new computer everything is soooo dark (doesn't matter the color profile, etc., and looks fine in Lr, Ps, Quicktime, etc.).
I just want something super fast to preview the jpgs, I am fine with Lr and Ps for organizing and editing.
Project timekeeping software Jun 18, 13, 6:05 a.m.
Looking for some very basic software to keep track of time per projects.
Something really simple...I used Plock ages ago, but it ended up not compatible with Windows 7 (can't seem to find it now).
Any suggestions? PC compatible please
Helvetica Neue Alternatives Apr 22, 13, 7:38 p.m.
Looking for alternatives for Helvetica Neue Thin/Ultra thin. Found a billion, but most don't have the ultra thin option.
Ideally something that I can buy just the thin versions or somewhat reasonably priced
Laptop Feb 14, 13, 7:10 a.m.
Looking for a new laptop.
1. Looks decent
2. NO stupid numerical keyboard on right side (my God, why the hell do they all come with this now??! I've never, not once, used mine on my reg keyboard...my bookkeeper uses it. I am not a bookkeeper)
3. Powerful enough for light 3D, video, PS, etc.
15" (don't think i want another 17")
(I love the MacBook quality and screen, but am liking Window's 8 touchscreen functionality. iOS looks so dated, too)
Hacked Federal Website Jan 26, 13, 12:23 p.m.
(surprised no one has posted this already)
I am not sure whether I should be scared or what...certainly fascinating...
Minimalist WP Jan 23, 13, 5:27 p.m.
Looking for minimarlist WordPress themes/templates.
Something like this:
One of the best I have seen - looks like a nice portfolio site, not the usual grid/blog/generic look.
