On my Mac/Windows PC…LogMeIn

LogMeIn for Macintosh and Windows

Logmein logo

If you have more than one computer, or find yourself offering computer support for friends and family, LogMeIn is a MUST HAVE on your Mac or Windows PC. LogMeIn allows you to remotely control any computer from afar, as long as you have a network connection. Here is how to get it.

  • Sign up for a LogMeIn Free account (although you will get an upsell for the Pro version when you do)
  • Log into your new account and choose Add Computer. This will place LogMeIn on this particular system and allow you to control it from another computer (or even your iPhone/iPad)
  • To control this machine, log into your LogMeIn account from any other machine, select a computer from your list of available systems and control away!
  • You can add up to 10 separate computers on the Free LogMeIn account, so you can set up your parent;s computer, your brother, your sister and even that strange cousin 3 states over. (LAUGH)

Logmein is good. Additionally, tools like RHUB remote support servers can also be used for remotely accessing computers. It works on both MAC and Windows.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit ifttt.com    From the iTunes App Store...
