February 25, 2018

To view the processes running inside Google Chrome, select the options icon, hit More Tools, and select Task Manager. In your task manager window you’ll see every open tab along with every enabled extension, the amount of memory and CPU power each is using, and how much network data they’re sending or receiving. You’ll also spot secondary processes, like how much GPU power Chrome is using to keep everything running smooth... READ MORE

Inoreader – RSS Feed Reader For Power Users (best of the best)

February 23, 2018

Most people are unaware of RSS (Rich Site Summary) and are missing out on a really powerful way to retrieve the latest content from the sites you may be interested in without having to physically visit the site. Most sites offer RSS feeds and to retrieve those feeds you need a RSS “Feed Reader”. Don’t let this all scare you away, it is very easy to learn and use. You will not regret it. I personally use a feed reader called Inoreader to pull down news and information from hundreds of sites that are of my interest. For example, CNN and Fox news have RSS Feeds. Instead of going to their sites, I simply get their RSS Feed address(es) and enter into my Inoreader RSS Feed Reader to pull in the latest content. That is only two sites I used as an example. I have over a hundred sites where I do the same.

I have tried many RSS feed readers; and, I can tell you that Inoreader is the best of the best. It also available on many platforms (such as on the Web, Windows, Android, Google Chrome App, and iOS). I have Inoreader installed on every device and computer I own and can tell you it seamlessly will synchronize your RSS Feeds no matter which device you use.  If you have a Facebook or Google account, you are one step away from setting up your own Inoreader account.

Inoreader – One place to keep up with all your information sources. Rely on powerful free search, full archive of your subscriptions. Monitor specific keywords, save pages from the web and subscribe to social media feeds.

One of the most overlooked Google Doc Apps is Google Drawings

February 15, 2018

One of the most overlooked Google Doc applications is Google Drawings. The main reason for this is that Google Drawings is not readily available in the listing of the other Google Docs  (like Docs, Sheets and Slides). What I am finding is that Google Drawings is a powerful (easy to use) graphic designer that can be used for multi-purposes (i.e. blog postings, signs, cards, facebook posts, flowcharts, organizational charts, website wireframes, mind maps, etc…).

As I mentioned, it is not easy to find or get to. Below is step-by-step on how to get to Google Drawings. Once you are there, bookmark it in your web browser.  You can also get to it, if you are a Google Chrome browser user, by going to the Google Chrome Store and downloading the Google Drawings app [here].
