View Full Version : favorite gizmos, gadgets, tools, and stuff

September 20th, 2009, 08:53 AM
Everyone has their favorite tools and gizmos online, some are free, some are paid, but they all help us get from point A to point B a little faster.

Things like Open Office, Wordpress and Twitter probably rank up there for most of us.

So, what are some of your favorite tools and gizmos? What makes your internet marketing life easier?

Just thought it might be fun to discuss this weekend ;) Hope everyone had a nice productive week.

I love my dual monitors :)

That's a really good one! I really want to do that as well, I think in January I'm going to replace my desktop and I'm going to get a second monitor as well. I wanted it before because it looked cool :-p but everyone I know that has dual monitors says it increased their productivity 10 fold.

Roboform! And I have to increase my message size by at least ten characters. So I'll say it again. Roboform!

Ooh I love my Mozy & Acer Mini (and now my HP Netbook!).

I also like rechargeable batteries -lol. So many gadgets, so many batteries!

definitely Mozy, LastPass.com (like roboform probably), Evernote, my iphone (aka my second brain), oh and my newest infatuation is my wireless printer.

I'm starting to use Evernote and found it to be real handy. I need to definitely look into Robo Form or similar.

Oh, gosh I forgot about Mozy! (It's so easy I never think about it -lol-) Love that service.

Oh one more thing I use a lot it, Read It Later (readitlaterlist.com) Has a firefox plugin as well. Comes in handy when you see a great article, but you need to stay on your current task. It's kinda like a bookmarking tool, but doesn't clutter up your real bookmarks.

and speaking of bookmarks, the Foxmarks plugin for FF is great when you need to work on more than 1 PC.

I a in for dual monitors also! I use them at my daytime job. When I go home and plop myself in front of the laptop its just not the same. Roboform (Roboform to go) is one of my most tools used every day. I installed it on my flash drive (another gizmo I could not do without!) and take it with me where ever i will be on a computer. Instant access to all my files and passwords as well!

Tweet Tube lets you easily share pictures, videos from YouTube, webcam videos, and more right on Twitter.

I just tested it with one of my YouTube videos (cute dog moment):


I just pasted the YouTube URL for my vid and it tweeted it for me. Makes it easy without having to copy the URL then do a tweet. Just a free tool that makes things a little easier when looking to share stuff on Twitter.

- Roboform for automating passwords and bookmarks
- AmazonS3 for hosting media files
- Dragon Speaking Naturally (10) - voice dictation software
- Seesmic for twitter
- Tweetlater (aka SocialOomph) For posting tweets while I'm sleeping. Since I live in New Zealand and host 2 online radio shows that air mid day in the US (but early waking hours for me here in NZ) I need a way post tweets in the hours leading up to when my live shows air (while I'm sleeping).

My laser printer and Snagit.
