Contactually is Proactive Personal Assistant

Contacutally

I came across this new service in my daily reading the other day and I am trying it out now. One of my biggest challenges is keeping up with everyone in my contact list. Being productive and proactive in your life is very important, but managing all your contacts -- and staying in touch with people -- can be very difficult to manage. It is so easy to let things slide until you realize your project list is quickly dwindling and you haven't been developing new projects to take their place.

Contactually reviews your contact list, who you have been communicating with most, and then prompts you to classify and follow-up on a regular basis. While this does requires a bit of initial work, the benefits could be substantial for you. Contactually will prompt you for information and followups via the web site and also via a daily email.

This is a paid service, but they will have some basic free services that allow you try it out.

You can gain access to the beta immediately using the "instant access" link at the bottom of the Mashable article linked below.

Contactually Prioritizes Contacts and Communication in Email Network

Contactually is like a virtual secretary minus the hundreds of paper sticky notes. It manages your email contacts and communications to ensure you don’t forget to reply to important emails.

The service links directly to a user’s email account, so there’s no need to install computer software or browser plugins as with similar services such as Boomerang for Gmail. It is made specifically for those working in sales, business development or professional services such as consulting and financial management, although it can be used with personal inboxes, too.

“We have been talking with customers, and they say they have a nagging fear there are loose ends that aren’t being wrapped up,” said Tony Cappaert, Contactually’s co-founder. “A customer says he is going to follow up with someone, and he doesn’t. He says he is going to send a presentation — he forgets.”

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.

How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware

A digital photo frame is a small screen that can sit on your desk in your office or in your kitchen displaying your favorite pictures, changing at regular intervals. The first commercial digital photo frame was introduced in the 1990s shortly after the digital camera. Digital photo frames made a comeback in popularity during 2020, perhaps because people were staying at home more. In this tutorial, we’ll turn our Raspberry Pi into a digital photo frame using MagicMirror and the GooglePhotos module. Please note, we will skip installation of the 2-way mirror in the original Magic Mirror project. Consider this project, “Magic Mirror, without the mirror.” Read How to Build a Raspberry Pi-Powered Digital Photo Frame via Tom's Hardware An interesting link found among my daily reading
