Make your time Fruitful

Have you ever had a day gone by and you thought to yourself: jeez, what did I do all day? This kind of scenario usually happens when we don’t know how to manage our time. But thanks to all kinds of software these days, there are task softwares available that would help you manage your time wisely.

The first obvious choice is Outlook’s To-Do list but the To-Do list has a very limited capabilities not to mention you have to spend a lot of dough just to get Outlook on your PC. There are stand alone task software like Outlook’s ToDo list that offers much features. You can try some over at download.com. I got to try out FruitfulTime since it has a full trial version.

The software is very easy on your resources and sits quietly on the background. It alerts you of important tasks and separates mini-tasks if you want to break down your most important tasks into little ones. You can also password protect it in case you don’t want anyone seeing what you’re about to do in the course of the day.

All in all, I’m pretty impressed with FruitfulTime. I’m going to check out other task software and see how they compare before settling down on anything.

TV on PC

I’ve been coming upon sites which offers TV on PC. They all promise to offer you access to thousands of TV and movie links and free TV channels all over the world. It’s very enticing and I’ve been thinking of subscribing to one.

Cable and Satellite bills are bit steep for me and these websites offering free TV are only charging a one time fee and I’ll be able to access different channels from around the world. Of course, while watching TV on your PC can probably save me on Cable TV bills, I’d probably have to spend more on Internet Charges as to watch television on PC will eat up a lot of my bandwidth.

It would be a hard decision and I’ll probably have someone with some financial background do the math for me but this would be something I’ll consider for sometime. Of course, if I can access this on my mobile phone, it would probably make my decision much easier.

Spanish-English Dictionary for the Sony Ericsson

My brother has an aging Sony Ericsson P900 phone which I kept nagging him to replace with the Sony Ericsson P1i. Anyways, he was asking me if I know of a compatible English-Spanish dictionary which he can install on his phone since he’s going to stay in Spain for a few months. I asked what he needed the software for considering that I think he aced his spanish class (but then again, that was decades ago). He said he needed to polish up on his Spanish since he couldn’t even translate the simple phrase, cobertura adsl (adsl coverage). I think that phrase popped up when he was trying to find an adsl provider so that he can stay connected even while away (I tried to help but most websites from Spain are in Spanish and I flunked that class).

Anyways, I recommended LingvoSoft Spanish-English dictionary for Symbian, I think they have a version which is compatible with the Sony Ericsson P900. I’ve used LingvoSoft on my windows mobile device and they have a pretty good software. Download3000.com has a link to the trial version if you’re interested.
