Techy Tuesdays – Increase Productivity with Speed Dial

September 14th, 2010 by Matt Gold

Over here I am constantly on my computer, so the lines between personal life and business will at times get blurred. I have recently gotten into the habit of using FireFox for any personal (non-RPMWare) browsing, and sticking to Chrome for everything RPMWare. I have my bookmarks, I have my search bars, but I always seem to be opening tab after tab to get what I want.

So I went out to find a better solution and I stumbled across something I don’t know how I lived without.  It’s called Speed Dial, and it will change your life.

If you haven’t yet switched to Mozilla FireFox, Google Chrome or Apple Safari – Do it Now!

A recently identified flaw in Microsoft Internet Explorer could allow deviants to take control of your computer and steal passwords or other important information. “Microsoft is continuing its investigation of public reports of attacks against a new vulnerability in Internet Explorer” so says the company.

The attacks were identified in IE7, but all versions are potentially vulnerable.

For more info check the BBC or the WashingtonPost – But before you do that download Mozilla FireFox, Google Chrome or Apple Safari

UPS Going Green?

November 4th, 2008 by Matt Gold

UPS Green

According to a recent press release, UPS is leading the shipping industry in ‘Green Technology’ by upgrading their fleet of trucks to Hydraulic Hybrid Vehicles (HHV) which will deliver better fuel economy and have environmental benefits (fewer emissions, reduced CO2, etc).  According to UPS, HHVs store energy by compressing hydraulic fluid under pressure in a large chamber – I assume this is then used to power the vehicle in lieu of using gasoline.

What does this all mean?  50% Better Fuel Efficiency and 40% Reduction in Emissions.  Does that mean you be seeing a 50% reduction in the ‘gas tax’ UPS tacks onto your bill each month?  Eh, don’t be so sure.  Although the invest is claimed to ‘pay for itself’ within 3 years, it’ll probably be a while before those savings trickle down to you.
