Best Practices

Did you know that every social media site with a logo/social media icon has a page with appropriate icons you can use and how you can (and can’t) use them? They usually call it the “best practices” page. I’ve now read through so many TOSes and gone back and forth …

Thinking out loud

Do I need a new phone? Or do I need a wireless charger? Do I need to stick with the Dropbox I know or move to a file sharing service that doesn’t keep changing the rules on me? Why can’t I get this external backup drive to automagically back up? …

My favorite free apps
