a question for my readers…

My wonderful G has been using a service called LogMeIn for a while now on his PC’s. It let’s him keep all of his computers synced at all times. It also allows him to gain access to his home or office PC from any computer with an Internet connection.

In my dreams, my iMac at work and my laptop at home would be completely mirrored at all times. I just saw that LogMeIn also has an Apple feature. Are you familiar with the Mac Version of this service and have used it? I am not sure a service like this would work for me as some of my project files are h-u-u-u-g-e!

Dear swissmiss readers, how do you keep your data on your multiple computers synced?

Investing Strategies for iPhone Customers


“It’s certainly not as steep a trend as my iPhone’s devaluation, but it’s significant. In the year since I bought my first iPhone, AAPL has gained roughly 50% in value. If I’d spent that original US$599 on Apple stock instead, I’d be able to buy a new iPhone 3G and have about US$599 in assets to my name. Oh well.ll.”

blue lounge spacestation



An extended desk organizer for laptop users with internal coiling pins conceals all the cords that usually sprawl over the desk. Hovering just 5mm above the desk, cords are free to enter or exit the hub at any point – on the side to connect a scanner, the front for an iPod, the back for a laptop or camera. An internal 4-port USB hub will keep all peripherals connected. One USB plug exits the station right where needed to connect a laptop. Just tip the front of the SpaceStation up to access the hub and cords.

CreativeTechs Tip: Play almost any video file on your Mac.


If you are not yet a subscriber to Creative Tech’s Tips then I would highly recommend to sign up asap. Here’s one of their latest tips:

There are two essential (and free) utilities that will solve a host of video incompatibility problems with Apple’s QuickTime utility. They are free to download, and easy to install. CreativeTech recommends installing these on most Mac creative workstations.

Perian — Billed as the Swiss-Army knife for QuickTime. This open source plug-in for QuickTime includes a wide number of video codec files that enables your Mac to play most cross-platform video formats.

Filp4Mac WMV — Provides support for Microsoft’s Windows Media files (WMV) — one of the few video formats Perian doesn’t support. The free version allows you to play most WMV files. You can pay to unlock additional options for exporting and converting WMV files into other formats.
