10 Dropbox Alternatives

Dropbox Alternatives - Dropbox

Even if you hear multiple stories of how Dropbox saves the day, the moment you hear about them losing over 27,000 files, you doubt their service. The price of cloud files storage has been going down every six months to a year. As the number of apps and services that sell or give space increases, the prices go lower and lower. I remembered when I had 50GB for $10 a month—I now have a 1TB for the same price! That's a huge jump and leaves many users paying for space they'll never use or need. So ... Continue Reading

Kenny talks about some of the details surrounding Dropbox's #EPIC #FAIL, how they handled it, and what the Church can learn from Dropbox's unhuman response. ... Continue Reading

To-Do List Tips

Get it Done - DONE

My to-do list and project management came crashing down last week. I thought I had a great system, when I realized that I not only was letting stuff 'fall through the cracks,' but that my to-do list made me feel heavy. Before, it made me feel light. I didn't have to fret or worry about missing something, because I would find it in my to-do list. For some reason, however, this wasn't working anymore. Did I need a new app? ... Continue Reading

What the Bible Does and Doesn’t Say About Technology

Citadel_down - Half Life 2

Technology and religion seem almost to exist in separate planes of existence. Fact and faith. Science and superstition. They’re not wholly incompatible, mind you—just difficult to reconcile sometimes. But if we were to turn to the Bible for guidance about the place that technology should occupy in a God-fearing civilization, what would we find? The answer is: not a lot. Prophetic though it may be, the Bible remains relatively silent on the subject of mankind’s technological progress. That is, ... Continue Reading

The Caffeine Causality Loop

I take my coffee dark please

So I am back on caffeine. After going a full month without having my usual daily dose of morning and afternoon coffee, I am back in 'the loop.' And while it can be a productivity killer, I am drinking it with far more moderation and mindfulness than before; so I am considering my month long stint away from coffee as a success. In an effort to avoid the pitfall pictured below, I will probably be doing this again if I find myself trapped in this vicious circle: ... Continue Reading

How-To Send Your Emails to Evernote

When Evernote and Email Get Together

Evernote is an Inbox Hero! Over the past few months I've wrangled a number of different ways to bridge—connect—my email inboxes to Evernote. Since I get many emails that need to be transformed into blog posts, or at least I would like to, they usually end-up sitting in my inbox and leaving a big mess. There was a time that I would file them into “To Write,” but that just ended up being another trash can for my email. I tried a few email clients that had Evernote add-ons, but wasn't there a ...

The Future of Adobe Creative Apps and Microsoft [Video]

Adobe and Microsoft working together

I remember when I first got my Mac. It was pretty exciting. :) After years of using Windows, I was excited to start digging into a number of exclusive Mac based apps. Most of them were for web development, as apps provided by Adobe and others came in both flavors. However, I remembered a time when this wasn't the case and Adobe was only for Apple! Times have certainly changed, and while I didn't think I would ever switch away from Apple, a collaboration of Adobe and Microsoft that looks ... Continue Reading
