Miscellaneous Cool Stuff

May 12th, 2014 5 Comments

I’m finally harvesting my open browser tabs, sharing some of the cool stuff that has been patiently waiting to be shared with you, gentle reader.

Chrome Remote Desktop for Android

Chrome Remote Desktop has been quietly awesome for a few years, and Google recently extended it to Android. So now, I can troubleshoot my parents’ computer from the road. Yay.

Project Ara Gets Closer

Squee! I’m not really sure why, but I’m so geeked for Project Ara phones, i.e. Google’s upcoming modular smartphones. Design your phone from the sensors up to the screen size, or something like that.

Everything is DIY now, so why not?

PiPhone

Speaking of everything being DIY now, some clever bloke built a Raspberry Pi smartphone.

The UX Drum

Longtime friend of the ‘Lab, Floyd Teter (@fteter) wrote a post about the importance of UX. I concur.

Linksys WRT1900AC

And finally because everyone gets excited about networking gear, especially this time of year, I give you my latest bit of nerd pr0n, the Linksys WRT1900AC. Short version, it’s a really fast wifi router, something every telecommuter should covet. Want the long version? Techcrunch did a review.

Speed comes at a price, namely $250, but I’m asking myself why pay for a big pipe when wifi has always been the choke point?

And Finally

Things Fitting Perfectly into Other Things

How about you? Care to share your open browser tab nuggets?

You know what to do.

    Tinke is a fun way to measure your zen.

    Hop is an awesome collab tool app for making it easier to manage your email.

    You probably are already on the waiting list but the Ollie, from the Spheros company, looks bad ass.

    @Joyce: Good tips, you should do a regular post, Joyce’s Jumble or something pithy like that :)

  3. Joyce Says:

    @Jake: Joyce’s Jumble sounds like something from Reader’s Digest. How about Kuramoto’s Kozy Korner?

  4. Jake Says:

    @Joyce: Um, 3 Ks, not a good look.

    @Jake: Good point. :D
