I’ve recorded a video interview at last week’s Social Media Club event in Richmond, VA with my new Droid smartphone from Verizon. The video came out excellent taking in consideration the lack of lighting at the venue. Once recorded, I’ve downloaded on my Windows 7 laptop and it played flawlessly. I’ve also uploaded the video to Facebook and YouTube without issues.

Someone asked me earlier how to manage multiple Gmail accounts without Using any email clients or 3 different browsers. After a quick Google search, I’ve found this little neat add-on for Firefox called “Gmail Manager.” The add-on is not new by all means, but it is one not familiar to a lot of folks.

Silicon Dust

I have Comcast Triple Play service and I’m happy with it.  I’ve looked at Verizon’s FiOS service, but Verizon didn’t want to rent me a static IP with my residential service.  Comcast was more than happy to provide me with a static IP for an extra $4.95 per month.  I have a few servers at home that I use for heavy software testing and having a static IP is a must.

I’ve replied to @CookWithSaronn’ s tweet about a new project she is working on related to Green Web Hosting, stating—“I look forward to that blog. Green tech is one of my favorite topics…” She replied back to me with –“Cool! I’m very interested in green technology. So what’s new? Fill me!’ I’ve paused for a moment to think about that, while I was sipping on a glass with 2006 Chateau de Cornemps Bordeaux and sporadically watching this week’s episode of “The Biggest Looser.” What do I know about green technology? After all, I’m only an IT pro currently working with one of the top 10 architecture firms on the planet and co-founded a company that helps small businesses go from paper to digital. Well, let’s see.

Dropbox

A few months ago, I’ve found this neat tool called “Dropbox.” Dropbox is a software client that synchronizes (syncs) your files across computers, whether they are running Windows, Mac or Linux operating systems, and they can also be accessed from just about any mobile device (Blackberry, iPhone, Netbook, etc.) with internet access using Dropbox’s website. This application (app) also allows files to be automatically backed up to Dropbox servers or another computer. Once the files are synced and backed up, they can be shared with friends or teammates across the web. Seems like a dream come true, doesn’t it!?
