Regardless of political beliefs, everyone can agree our government can be pretty frustrating these days, right? Gridlock, corruption, partisanship… you name it, our government has it.

You would think that we had this covered in the 21st century, yet, we’re just not seeing that in America.

Fiverr: Rise of the Micro Job Sites

Ok, so maybe we’re a little late to the game. But I have noticed quite a few of these micro job sites popping up all over. Generally, each “gig”, or job, is worth $5.

2050: It was called Facebook, and I was an Early Adopter

We all have Facebook…oh, you don’t? Good for you, rebel! Anyways, if you have Facebook it may be of interest to know whether or not you were an early adopter, fast follower, or a sheep in the herd. Whether FB is governing the world in 2050 or not, we’ll be talking about it to our grandkids the same way my grandfather brags about how he used a slinky in 1944, just one year after it was invented.

So the question is, with 1 billion active users today, where in the timeline did you jump in?  Read More…

Frozen Desktop: One of the most classic of office pranks, all this trick requires is an unprotected computer and a few minutes. Simply minimize all windows, and click the Print Screen key. Paste that into any editing program (ie: Paint) and then save the file. Now you can set that file as the desktop background. Next thing to do is hide the actual icons on the screen by right clicking, hovering over Align By, and then unchecking Show Desktop Icons.

You can even open up multiple compose/reply boxes; the limit is Read More…
