Twitter is dead! Time to Flutter!

flutterThe revolution of micro-blogging with Twitter is over……It may be time to consider nano-blogging,  Fluttering.  Instead of having 140 characters to tell the world what you are doing or your latest bodily movement you now only have 26 characters!

Twitter Security Tip – ‘Hot Stove’ Theory

Following on from my most successful blog post last month, here is another internet security tip for all you Twitter users.  My buddy Jack Bauer was kind enough to share this with me:

The Twitter folk are also onto it:

WARNING: If you see a link prefaced by “don’t click,” it is a trick
and you *really* should not click (we’re on it)

but I would back Jack Bauer anyday over anyone else.

If you do click these links (Even though they say “don’t”; A bit of the hot stove theory, ‘don’t touch the stove, it’s hot’ but you always touch it just to check for yourself and then get burnt as a result) you will probably end up with some form of malware on your computer.

Stay Safe

Digsby – My Favourite Application of 2008

digsby_100x100If you only could install one application on your computer in 2009, install Digsby!Have you also been caught up in the Web 2.0 world where IM and Social Networking have taken over you life like me?Previously I had about 4 IM programs running not to mention the browser constantly open with Facebook, Twitter and my webmail.  Digsby consolidates all your Instant Messaging, Social Networking and Email under one roof.  I had tried this previously with iGoogle but nothing has produced the success and ease of use of Digsby.It has support for the following:

Instant Messaging clients:

Email Accounts:

Social Networking:

It works, it is light on your system and life just got easier!  Download Now!

Unfortunately it isn’t available for Mac OS yet, but I’m sure it is not far off.

Installation Tips:  When the installation wizard comes up click ‘Accept’ for Digsby and then for the following pages 8 or so pages, click “Decline” otherwise you will end up with a whole lot more ‘advertising’ apps than your bargained for.  Once installed you never get any advertising!

Happy Digsbying!
