Maintain Recurring Task Lists in Evernote

To Do ListEvernote has become a staple in my everyday personal and professional life both as an archive for documents to maintaining dynamic lists. I have archived documents such as manuals for my electronic equipment, recipes, work documents, meeting notes, notes about health and travel and notes about practices and games for the U8 Girls Soccer Team I coach. Additionally, I’ve found Evernote to be very useful in maintaining dynamic lists including lists for shopping, wines I enjoy and wish lists of items around the house I would like to upgrade. Even more dynamic, Evernote has become my system of record for my task list using a series of Notebooks and processes. I’ve used Todoodle, Todoist, Google Tasks, Outlook’s notes, paper and more but have not kept a task list process as long as I’ve used this system so I wanted to share with the Geek’s readers.

5 Ways to Reduce Roaming Costs

Mobile usage costs are something many of us don’t think too much about when we’re home, but when we go on holiday, we often discover that it’s something we should have considered. Usually we can connect just fine, but hostel and hotel Wi-Fi is usually horrible, or ridiculously overpriced. Likewise, roaming fees can crush an otherwise normal phone balance, leaving even the most careful of us wondering how we managed to pull up such an outrageous bill.

Infographic: Real Spy Gadgets you first saw in the Movies

Despite being neck deep in the industry, it never ceases to amaze me how quickly technology progresses. Take ‘spy’ gadgets for example. Once upon a time, these were only to be seen in James Bond movies as mere fantasy. Fast-forward to today, and not only are many of those figments now real, they are extremely affordable. We’ve featured more than a few here at GfG ourselves.

The folks at UK’s Online Spy Shop put together a nice infographic that highlights some of the real-world spy gadgets that exist today that once made their debut on the silver screen. Ah, the future is stranger than you might think! The full graphic is after the jump.

TomTom’s video makes fun of viral videos

This made me chuckle. TomTom put together a video to promo their latest competition, (although you wouldn’t know it from watching most of the video), and it makes light fun of many other recent viral videos. Think flash mobs dancing, the Old Spice guy, ‘will it blend?’ and more. Take a look:

Review: Altego 17″ Coated Canvas Cyan Laptop Bag

I had a chance to take a laptop bag by Altego™ for a spin and found a lot to like. The Altego brand launched a couple of new bag lines: the Coated Canvas Cyan series and the Channel Stitched Ruby series. There are backpacks, messenger bags, slipcases and sleeves across both style lines. Altego was kind enough to send me a Coated Canvas Cyan backpack.

Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto 5 Color Multi Pen

Review: Geek pens: Tombow AirPress and Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto 5 Color Multi Pen

Specialty online store JetPens sent me a couple of their products to check out. Yes, pens, but they import many of their products from Japan and Germany, so you’ll be hard-pressed to find most of these stateside. And yes, even when it comes to something as mundane as writing, the Japanese and Europeans have some different ideas than we do.
