Do you have a #Dropbox account and want somebody without one to upload a file to you? Now you can. When you log in, click File Requests on the left. The click the large, blue Create File Request button, enter the person's e-mail address, what you're requesting and which folder it should go into.

A welcome feature in Microsoft #Outlook 2016 (currently in public beta) is that when you want to attach a file to an e-mail message, appointment item or other screen, the Attach File icon has a list of recent files, so you can attach one, again:

An update coming to Google #Chrome will let you disable auto-play of #Flash videos. Besides being less annoying, this will be great for laptop battery life.

Google Chrome is an incredibly power-hungry browser. A new update may fix that.

Are you using the new Bookly font in the Amazon #Kindle? The app automatically loaded it on my #iPhone yesterday (with permission). It looks similar to Bookman, and I'm not sure if I like it or not.

Greetings to my new followers! I don't know how you found me, but thank you.

For posting to Twitter (@BobFlisser) and LinkedIn, I've been using #HootSuite for a while. It does a great job of managing multiple profiles and multiple services, scheduling, custom streams and more. This morning, they announced that images you insert will display directly in your posts, rather than just displaying the links. Check it out.

#Wired Magazine reports that FCC Chair Tom Wheeler has proposal to help disadvantaged families afford broadband Internet service. Since a high-speed connection is important for participating in the economy, I think this makes good sense.

The head of the FCC wants to subsidize broadband access for low-income families. The catch? The subsidy is just $9.25 per month---far less than most broadband plans.

The Large Hadron Collider restarted today after a 2-year shutdown for a major upgrade. The power is now 60% higher, luminosity is 10x higher. Having found the Higgs boson, the search is on for new particles, including dark matter.

What's the difference between Adobe #Photoshop and Adobe #Illustrator? Here's a good, simple, and graphical explanation. Tip 'o the hat to M.A. Kather.
