    For me, the Caps Lock key constantly comes in the way, and I routinely disable it on all of my machines. Whenever I need to write things in all-caps, I have no problem with holding down either of the Shift-keys with my little finger, and when I don’t need it, I tend to hit it […]

    Google’s mail service GMail is built on the idea that, instead of sorting emails into different folders, you use the search functionality to find your emails.

  • Creating your own ringtones on iPhone

    One of the most annoying things to me as a user, is the fact that I’m not able to assign my music files as ringtones. The “offical” way of adding more ringtones, is by buying them from Apple, however, you can generate them yourself, using your iPhone and a computer. To do so, you need […]
