Rethinking the lifetime ban….

Circuit City is kaput. Fry’s is 30 minutes away. Microcenter is 30 minutes away (although it’s only 10 minutes from work). The other night I was trying to get a video off of my camcorder and it wouldn’t play. All indications were that I needed a head cleaner. A Mini-DV head cleaner…

I was also in a time crunch and Best Buy is 10 minutes from the house, so I went there. I found exactly what I needed at a fair price. Someone asked if they could help me. The checkout was painless.

I am lifting the lifetime ban. I still prefer MicroCenter and Fry’s, but for the first time in years, I had a pleasant experience at a Best Buy…

Mobile Manager for Netflix

Mobile Manager for Netflix is a cool application from Microsoft. It allows you to manage your Netflix queues from a Windows Mobile device. You can even preview the movie directly on your device.

If you like the movies, it's time to celebrate!

Windows Mobile now offers a mobile application for Netflix. The new Netflix application for Windows Mobile phones makes it simple to manage your Netflix experience from a mobile device. You can search the entire Netflix library for your next film, get complete movie details, and even manage your DVD queue. Easily update your queue by moving films up, moving films down, or removing films from your queue.

A feature exclusive to Windows Mobile is the ability to play previews right on your Windows Mobile device. After watching a preview, you can then add the movie to your Instant Queue so you can instantly watch the movie on your Xbox 360.

Managing a Netflix account while mobile has never been easier, thanks to Mobile Manager for Netflix and a Windows Mobile phone.

Scribefire Blog Editor

ScribeFire - Blog Editor 
Usually, when I want to blog about a particular website, I use the Google Toolbar and use the Send to Blogger function.   It's been servicable, but I saw this article that suggested that Scribefire was a great way to blog from Firefox. 

It does have a more robust editor than the Google Toolbar supports.

Remember The Milk

I just signed up with a free service for tracking tasks. It looks pretty cool.

Remember The Milk - About: "Managing tasks is generally not a fun way to spend your time. We created Remember The Milk so that you no longer have to write your to-do lists on sticky notes, whiteboards, random scraps of paper, or the back of your hand. Remember The Milk makes managing tasks an enjoyable experience.

We began work on Remember The Milk in August 2004. What started as a simple idea soon became a huge web application with every feature imaginable (there's a reason why this took more than a year to finish!). We launched in October 2005. Remember The Milk now has more than one million registered users."
