Ting Vs Charge for Cell Service

I like Ting a lot. The pricing model is well conceived, and the resultant costs are low. The customer service is fantastic. The website and mobile apps function flawlessly. I never get unexpected charges. Laura and I have been on it for three years, and our average...

Biblical Worldview: Creation, Fall, Redemption Promo Video

Biblical Worldview: Creation, Fall, Redemption now has a promo page on bjupress.com. If you haven't yet purchased a copy, you will want to do so now that there is a promo page. Bryan Smith, the presenter on the video there, is the one whose vision I was trying to live...

How to Listen to YouTube Lectures as Podcasts

Update: I have a massively revised version of this set of tips here. I am all the time seeing YouTube lectures I want to listen to—that's right, listen to, not watch. I just can't watch a YouTube lecture. I'm distracted by all the other things I need to do on my...

Kindle Aping Oyster?

Wow! This could be extremely cool—Amazon opening a subscription service like Oyster Books. Or, like Oyster, it could be extremely cool and ultimately not conducive to my personal and financial purposes. I really liked Oyster and signed up immediately, but I let my...

Droplr Awesome

I love Droplr, and over the last six months I have used it nearly 800 times. It's one of the very few online services that I pay actual money for (I used to pay for LastPass, but I switched to 1Password, which is slightly better for my needs and has a one-time fee)....

Flip Your Monitor Vertically

Remember that time when someone showed you how to hit Alt+Tab on your keyboard to switch programs? You were either like, "I can do that with a mouse, so why do I need to learn a keyboard shortcut," or you were like, "WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!" I was WOW WOW. Where had...
