I’ve been carrying this May 18, 2011 article, The Ins and Outs of Using Gadgetry by New York Times tech guru, David Pogue, for three months. Actually, it’s worth carrying around so you can pull it out and get a few quick, and very helpful tips for whatever gadget you happen to be using.
Here are a few examples:
- Skipping all of those irritating introductory messages on cell phones
- Ensuring your digital camera focuses
- Highlighting the address bar in your browser without taking time to grab the mouse
- Using a few quick edit tips when you are writing
- … and much more
I’ll admit to being a bit of a Pogue groupie. He always seems to have the answers, and if he doesn’t, he calls around (or messes around with the gadgets) until he does.
