I goofed & I fixed

Last night I had a comment on a Google+ post that both stopped me in my tracks and made me really look at how I use social media. I make no secret of the fact that I use Twitterfeed to pull out a couple of top posts every couple of hours from a couple of…

TweetDeck for iPad

Nope, there’s no mention of it if that’s what you thought when you read the title. But it is the subject of this musing. I wonder if we will still see TweetDeck on the iPad following the Twitter buy-out. I really hope so as I love TweetDeck on Chrome, it’s by far the best Twitter…

Google+ is growing on me

No, I’m not about to post another review of Google+. However, I just had to get off my chest that I am starting to really like it…. a lot. Circles is a great feature. I’ve just been looking over my Circles and seeing the simplicty of the setup. Being able to target your posts is…

The task list

As I tackle my task list for the day it has me thinking about how I tackle it. Like many, I guess, I don’t think too much about it but I do tend to (must be a subconcious thing) start with a quick win task. The first task I clear off is one I know…

Google+ for iOS is here!

If you have been waiting patiently, as I have, for Apple to approve the Google+ app….. the wait is over. You can download the app here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google/id447119634?ls=1&mt=8 Let me know what you think….  I shall write up a review after I’ve had chance to play a little with it.
