Chrome Users Only!

March 26, 2012

What I am about to show you is going to revolutionize your Google Chrome experience.  There is a little known extension called Speed Dial that allows you to access the websites you visit much more easily – It’s called Speed Dial.

It has a lot of features that the old interface doesn’t.  For instance you can customise your thumbnails.  It has an exhaustive list of icons to choose from for popular social media platforms like Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter etc.

It also allows you to customise how many thumnails you see.  I have mine set up at 5 columns wide but you can have as many as nine columns by nine rows.

Now depending whether you work on a Macbook or a PC it is very easy to add/remove/edit dials (as they are called).  On a PC you just right click to edit or remove a dial, and on a Mac hold Command + click.  To add a dial just hover over the + sign and click!

The options menu is located at the righthand top of the screen beside the address bar, click the little lightening bolt and select options from the drop down menu.  Here is an sample preview:

The Speed Dial Google Chrome extension is completely free just type Google Chrome extensions into your browser and click on their web store, then scroll down until you find Speed Dial.  Here is a link: SpeedDial

DropBox It Like It’s Hot

June 10, 2011

Hi Guys,

Did you know that you can play music directly from DropBox? DropBox has a service called…yep, you guessed it…DropTunes!

DropBox also has a nifty Google Chrome extension which allows you to access your DropBox with the click of a button from your Chrome toolbar.  The add-on also has a feature that let’s to see a snapshot of your recent DropBox activities.

One last tool to make you happy is the DropBox Screen Grabber that lets you capture your screen and save it to DropBox.  All you do is press Shift + F10 to grab your entire screen or Shift + F11 to grab the current live window.  It saves in two formats JPEG and PNG.

Also, did you know that you can get more space by either buying it or by going to www.dropBox.com/gs and completing five or more of the tasks. You also get more space by installing it on other devices, referring friends, and connecting it to social media platforms.

Have fun and enjoy this short baby video:
