Did you have the latest Simple Touch Reader by Barnes and Noble? If so you might be interested in knowing that it has a web browser.
The Newest Nook, The Simple Touch Reader has a web browser in side of it's system, and you don't have to root it. Barnes and Noble does not list the browser has a feature. I do not have one but it is said you can navigate to websites using the search bar. Reviewers have been stating that the browser is a little buggy, so I suppose that is why Barnes and Noble does not list it as a feature.
But is this the reason to get the Nook Simple Touch Reader? Black and white screen, with a slow refresh rate at 1 frame per second? Is the Nook cheaper than Amazon, or the Apple Bookstore? I guess if you want a reader, and browser you should get an iPad or Android Tablet.
This morning Gmail Now Allows Pasting Images into Email.
So how does this work? Well first off you will need Google Chrome, so the idea is to simply copy the image from an email or from the web and paste it right into the message.
It is also said that you can even post screenshots. If you are on an Apple iOS device. simply hitting:
Apple iOS Devices
Command-Control-Shirt-4 will save the screenshot to your clipboard.
Windows Operating Systems
Print Screen, CTRL+C CTRL+V
Gmail states that while this currently only works in Google Chrome, they plan on releasing this features for other browsers. This is a great feature, and I can't wait to share it for others around the office.
This entry explains How to Optimize Your Mobile Devices (iPad, iPod, iPhone, and Android Devices) for Efficiency and Productivity.
The trick in doing this is limiting the amount of slides or pages on your mobile devices. The less you move around your mobile device, the more time you have to do other things, like typing up a correct TPS report.
To do this simply create folders or directories and name them properly. When organizing I always keep my names generic. The only exception are the apps the I use constantly. (eg: mail, settings, contacts, calendar, and all first slide items.
Slide one is reserved for those apps that I use constantly. When I turn on the devices, 9 times out of 10 I am choosing one of these apps. (This also includes the lower dock items.) Slide two is for all entertainment, productivity, and all other multimedia consumption apps, this includes but is not limited to Coms, Deals, Education, Entertainment, Finance, health, Lifestyle, Music, News, Photography, and so on. Finally the third slide is for games. Notice that the game folders that I have created are based on category, and not brand or games I play the most. The reason I do this is so I can find things easily with less hand gestures and eye movement.
Keep in mind that the iPad, iPod, and iPhone search feature is there, but that will not limit your hand movements. I mean, we do our best to to type on these devices only when necessary right?
To those of you like me who have more than one mobile device stay consistent! All slides should be the same and all directories should stay organized from one device to the other. This is how I effectively save time and increase my daily productivity at work and at home.
I hope this helps you.
Are you on iOS? Do you use Game Center, Plus+, or Open Feint? Well come share your username and give a list of games that you play, perhaps if we all share our usernames we can have a social group of friends playing Apple Game Center games.
Why don't we all share each others usernames / profiles so that we can share in the gaming iOS experience?
I have a great list of games that I play on a daily bases. Some of them include games such as:
1. We Rule
2. We City
3. Fruit Ninja
4. Infinity Blade
So what is your Game Center & Plus+ Username? I will be happy to add you to my friends list. Personally I believe this is a great way to play and interact with each other. If you play with in game gifts such as We Rule, expect more gifts. I don't know. I figured this would be a great way to share, and meet others in the gaming community. I don't mind being a guinnee pig since I live in public anyways. (being a blogger)
Please list your credentials as:
1. Game Center Username:
2. Plus+ Username
4. Games that you play
I think if every one participates we can have a good list of gamers here.
Rovio to Release Angry Birds on the Roku Box? Yep, and it's coming sooner than you think.
In the later part of the summer Angry Birds is to be released on the Roku Box. Personally I can't imagine playing Roku on my TV, but I think it would be pretty cool as a family game. Now is this anything like the Nintendo Wii with out the body movement?
Well either way, I think if the game gets released it should be free, but will it be ad-supported? Lots of questions, not many answers...I suppose we will have to way and see.
If you have a Roku Box be sure to check out the Channel Store every now again for the release!

Recently I have experienced an issue with my Google Chrome Cr-48 Chromebook, and I feel that their may be others are experiencing this problem as well.
During the past 4 weeks or I set my Cr-48 down in replacement of my iPad 2. Keep in mind that I recieved my iPad 2 on the release date, but I continues using the Cr-48 for day to day use.
On one of these days I noticed after I authenticated myself in Google (logged in) on the Cr-48, and my tabs were loading, I was getting a message a few seconds later that stated.
Kill Pages or Wait were my options, and being the guy I am I decieded to wait. Well I waited for about 10 mins, and I recieved to log off my profile, and restart the Google Chrome Cr-48. After the 15 second reboot I logged back in to my profile, and I had the same issue. I tried another profile, (my daugthers) and I had the same problem, pages unresponsive. I logged off, and logged on as a guest, and what do you know. Pages unresponsive.
I decided to look around the Google Chrome Cr-48 forums and i found that I was not the only one experiencing these problems. Many of them (like myself) placed our Chromebooks in Dev Mode, but apparently this wasn't the issue.
A googler stated on the forums to disable the about:pages by simply entering about:pages in the address bar of the Google Chrome Cr-48, but this did'nt help either.
Others mention disabling flash, and other add-ons, but by then I was more interested in how to restet and recover my Google Chrome Cr-48 back to the day I received it.
How to Reset & Recover Google Chrome Cr-48 Laptop
1. Power down the laptop
2. Remove battery using the slide lock
3. Remove the small rectangular piece of black tape on the edge by the power prongs. (It's tuff to see, but it's there)
4. Once take is removed, slide the switch from the left to the right, then back to the left again.
5. Insert the battery that was removed from the Cr-48.
6. Now boot the Cr-48 Up
After that you should be good to go. The Cr-48 will reinstall it's self from it's partition and in a min or less you will be back to the welcome screen.
Here is a video to better help you with this, if you have any questions leave me a comment below and I will be happy to assist in any way that I can.

A brief entry regarding Twitters new imaging service.
All thing D has confirmed that Twitter will be releasing an official Twitter sharing service this week at the D9 Conference. Twitters image sharing service will compete with other image sharing services such as twitpic.com and yfrog.com.
So what can we expect? Perhaps an easier image uploading service, video, or even image and video manipulation? Kind of like picnik.com? I guess we will have to see, but I am thinking more shadow boxing like Facebook integrates photos / videos in their newsfeed.
Just a guess.
Finally Duke Nukem Forever is supposed to be released some time this summer. Actually, I have the release date as June 14, 2011 according to the official website .
Did you pre order Duke Nukem Forever at any time in the last 14 years. If so (with a reciept) Game Stop is honoring all pre orders so long as you still have a receipt. Gamestop owns other companies like, EB Games, Babbage's, and Funco Lands. So if you do have that receipt from long ago they will indeed honor the amount that you reserved the game for.
I do hope your receipt is not as faded to fail as mine is.
