I am a social media nerd and am actually in the social media biz and I live in and on this app. I use the regular Twitter app on my iPhone but on my PC and Mac, I use this guy. It is a huge memory hog and sometimes it just gets stuck, but that's generally a data thing or an Internet thing. I have a too small laptop monitor and I could really see this app benefiting from a Huge Ass Monitor.

I can't believe it. I was in Stockholm when Spotify launched and I really enjoyed using it when I was living in Berlin, Germany. Now it is here in the US and I got to try it out through Klout. And now I am trying to use it as often as possible. But, alas, I tend to listen to podcasts these days -- and NPR -- way more than music. The best thing about this service starting abroad is that there are loads of global music and all king of British and European pop hits that I thought I would need to back to Europe to hear. So, with Spotify, I feel like I am back over in Euroville. I am a paid user these days.

My company uses Google Apps and this works perfect with it. I never cottoned to the whole "conversation" metaphor so I stick with the old school "reverse chronological order" version of one line per message deal. And it works well with multiple mailboxes in POP3 and IMAP. It handles IMAP really well.

I always have this downloaded but none of my colleagues or staff use the ODP files anymore and we have all reverted to .DOC again. It's awesome for free and it compatible and I do like the way it looks, actually. But, it doesn't get launched very often anymore. If you don't need to use Word or Office Suite and you have not quite invested yet in converting to the cloud using Google Apps -- I have not -- then this is perfect.

Until Google Apps / Google Docs actually delivers all that it promises, Microsoft is a mandatory install on all of my machines, both PC and Mac. And, sadly, OpenOffice Writer just doesn't cut it for me. I try to limit it to Excel and Word, but too many folks are still hooked on the PowerPoint. That said, the Mac version of Office is always more elegant than the PC version, which is very bizarre. Too expensive. Like always. Because it's blackmail!

I had abandoned Picasa until I got hooked by Google Plus and they're starting to integrate Picasa and all that so I have been using it more, but I am still devoted to Flickr. But, I would hate to get stuck our were Yahoo! and Flickr ever die. So, I will get to know Picasa. What I like about it is that it is able to go deep into my HD to search for old images, which is both cool and scary. But mostly cool. After a while, I tend to lose stuff.

I have started using Chrome more since I pretty much live and work in some form of Google Apps. So, I just assume they grok eachother better. I don't know if I like it that every tab is a new spawned service, but is long as it is stable and not any worse for memory that the Huge Hog That Is Firefox, I will keep trying to transition over to Chrome. It isn't easy as it should be.

I pretty much lived vicariously and globally via this app -- until I got my iPad and my virtual jet-setting went all tablet. Exploring the planet using gestures and pinching and so forth is so much cooler. But, the most important features for the total armchair globalist are still mostly on this app. So you need to get it and dig deep -- there are a lot of things that aren't obvious or easy to use but they're worth the effort.

I used to use a lot of FTP and then I used a lot of "sending huge files by Google mail" but now I have Dropbox running all the time and I have a box for business and an box for friends and a box that allows me to share my portable stuff over all my boxes. Very cool. Essential. A must have. Also, if you spam all your friends with invites, you can get loads of stuff free, I think. Be careful not to piss anyone off. I have a paid version, I think.

I have given up my pirating ways of yore so pretty much all my music is paid for to Apple. So I use iTunes. I do. Well, as the iCloud thing gets more ubiquitous I am on the Mac and PC less and less. But, I still get all of my Podcasts via iTunes. It is surely a memory pig but they keep on making it better and better. And I love TuneUp and that plugs into iTunes. And I use TuneUp to clean stuff I got when I was a dastardly pirate. Arrrr.
