All It Takes Is a Little Discipline
Disciplines can be applied to your iPhone. Let's be frank: the iPhone is dead sexy and dead snappy. It's a high tech toy that can do a lot of cool things, as seen in the commercials. But just because you got a smartphone that is smart in its attitude, this doesn't mean you can't accomplish amazing things with it.

Review: Memory Stick
MemoryStick is one of those applications that wants to be the tool you use in a pinch to get yourself out of a tight situation. In theory, that is what MemoryStick does. Your state-of-the-art iPhone transforms itself into a mountable flash drive. So if you suddenly find yourself in need of a few gigabytes of storage space and have no thumb drive within reach, MemoryStick makes that emergency storage happen. In theory, that’s what it wants to do. And yeah, it tries really hard to meet up to its potential.

As it was a free download and I wanted to explore Social Media possibilities with my iPhone, there was no harm in giving it a shot. Admittedly, I wondered just how versatile this app could be?

Column: The Secret to Getting Things Done, Keeping It Simple
As my friends know how busy I am, I was inundated with many Productivity application suggestions. So I went shopping. Window shopping. (Yes, you can go window shopping on a Mac, sacrilegious as it may sound...)

Then I stopped for a moment and considered all this organization, considered all the options being offered to sort and categorize one's lifestyle, and asked myself "When do I have the time to organize all this stuff?"

I make no bones about it — I am one busy guy. I have classes to teach, books to write, articles to turn in to my editor here; and on top of all this, I'm a dad to a beautiful 4-year old daughter. This is why you would think that something like Things, developed by Culture Code, would be the perfect application for someone like me. It certainly has earned a lot of love with so many reviews out there from MacWorld, MacLife, and Apple-related blogs. When I read up on its features and surf around the interface, I felt promised a new level of organization. But as I play around with Things, I can't shake this feeling of déjà vu. I feel like I've been in this interface before, but with one dramatic difference: I was ten dollars richer.
