Not to be obvious here, but it's that time of year. I'm hoping to make some resolutions I can stick with beyond the first month or so.
I haven't decided for sure yet, but what resolutions/changes are you hoping to make this year?
And a side question: do you believe in resolutions? Are they worth making?
Ultimately the most important question of all...
The writer Maya Angelou said:
"Since age two I've been waltzing up and down with the question of life's meaning. And I am obliged to report that the answer changes from week to week. When I know the answer, I know it absolutely; as soon as I know that I know it, I know that I know nothing. About 70 percent of the time my conclusion is that there is a grand design. I believe that the force that created life is betting that human beings will do something quite wonderful--like live up to their potential. I am influenced largely by Blaise Pascal and his wager. Pascal advises us to bet on the toss of a coin that God is. If we win, we win eternity. If we lose, we lose nothing.
I'm looking out a large window now and I see about 40 dogwood and maple and oak and locust trees and the light is on some of the leaves and it's so beautiful. Sometimes I'm overcome with gratitude at such sights and feel that each of us has a responsibility for being alive: one responsibility to creation, of which we are a part, another to the creator--a debt we repay by trying to extend our areas of comprehension."
What do you think? Have you heard any other quotes. Why are we here?
OK I've finally been allowed at work to switch from Blackberry to iPhone technology. So I now have a Dell laptop at work and an iPad and iPhone. What is the best way to manage tasks?
I use Outlook as my main email, calendar, contacts, and To-Do task management program. The outlook mail, calendar, and contacts all sync between devices very well. However it appears that Apple really doesn't have much in the way of a native task manager system.
So my question to all of you apple power users is what is the best way to manage my many tasks from Outlook?
I'm prepared to abandon the outlook task manager if there is something superior that I can use between all of my devices. The app store has a lot to choose from but I'm hoping to get help from all you Apple experts out there.
I'm looking to get a good tv tuner for my MacBook Pro so I can watch television via my comcast cable network. I've checked out numerous reviews on Elegato, Happauge, and other products...hoping someone has some first hand experience you could share before I make a purchase.
I need to get new sunglasses, but it's never as much fun (or cheap!) when you need prescription eyewear. I'm looking to purchase online, but I've never done that before and am wondering if there are reputable sites that can provide a good deal without messing up the prescription. Any experiences/recommendations?
