Productivity Tip - Use Zonesize from DonationCoderThere are often times when you need to have 2 or more windows displayed on the same screen where you are using both programs at once. For instance you may be viewing a browser window while writing to another document. In these situations you may also want to drag and drop text or graphics from one window to the other. Zonesize allows you to have a predefined set of window sizes or zones to suit your working pattern.

Subjot is a Topic based Twitter except it's not. It's part Quora, part forum, part Plurk (comments, not interface) and part Friendfeed (cross-posts to Twitter/FB only)
What's in it for Twitter users:
It doesn't have an external application that I know of but your homepage design is all Twitter with the extra options not really getting in your way.
No hashtag (although it has a better list system in-site but that doesn't get imported when posting to Twitter)
No notification of when someone mentions your username (although it has the same notification Quora uses which is much more powerful for when people you know replies back to you)
No saved searches
No auto-url shortening
What's in it for Facebook users:
The service still relies on inviting your friends into using it but you don't have to follow their every status updates. Just the ones you want to know about them.
No privacy. Right now all posts are public.
What's in it for Plurk users:
Same micro-blogging goodness that includes a comment system.
It definitely has no similarity to Plurk's interface.
What's in it for those who have avoided social networks?
Currently it has a nice community. Even the developer is all over the place talking to users publicly in the comments.
Initially the interface may seem scary but it has the feel of a forum. In some parts superior, in some parts inferior.
The limited character count for example is adapted from Twitter but unlike Twitter it has a higher character count.
It may also not allow for titles but subjects are like turning Titles into Twitter streams. Say... you write a mini-review. You can create a mini-review subject and every post you write under mini-review will go there. It is also your own exclusive forum category. Others may make the same title but both of your contents don't cross-post unless people follow both of you.
There's also no direct image hosting or formatting but the textbox is smart. Direct image links show images. Youtube links embed videos.
I have been interested in maintaining my web privacy for years, wishing to defend myself from the continuing and increasing assault on that privacy, from the advertisers and the Google and other ad-click giants.
So, yesterday out of interest, I downloaded the Ghostery add-on that works in:
I was so impressed with the initial results after installing it that I posted a review and gave it a 5-star vote:
Best blocker I've used since JunkBuster - Rated 5 out of 5 stars.

Last December I switched from a Windows Mobile to an Android phone. This opened up the exciting and vast world of apps and widgets to me. In the past three months I've looked at many apps and widgets, tried some, read about others, tried to find the best ones fitting my needs.
Here I present a selection of apps which I find most useful describing them with a few words only. All the apps presented here are either free or quite cheap.
If you're using an app other than the ones I present here that cover the same or similar functionality or if you'd like to have more information on any of these apps please let me know.
