Calendar Pro:

If these pictures are not enough to make you get Calendar Pro right away, consider the following.  I had an issue with duplicate entries on my Calendar Pro calendar.

Calendar Pro is $14.95 and worth every penny.

Theta Poker for iPhone/Touch Review

I don’t plan on writing every day.  In fact, I have no plan.  But when the tech mood strikes, which seems to be more often as of late, I’ll share my thoughts.  Hope you keep visiting my site.

WizMouse

WizMouse

Here’s a great, free Windows utility.  WizMouse gives you the ability to scroll in windows in which you do not have focus.  As long as your mouse is over a particular window, even if it’s a background program, you have the ability to scroll.  This beats the heck out of having to click on windows to get the focus, then scrolling, then returning to another window by clicking on it.

Control Your Open Windows

Aerosnap, a new beta program, let’s you view two programs side by side on your monitor.  All you do is drag one program to one side of your screen, and drag the second program to the other side, to view two programs side by side.

The free program comes with several options including startup with Windows, changing the size and activity of snapping zones or using hotkeys.  It’s easy to use and makes your computing life more convenient.
