Google Docs: Number Crunching

by Scott Roche May 23, 2011 Service

I will admit it, I’m not a power spreadsheet user. I was an English geek in high school and college. I was never into numbers or databases. I did learn a thing or two about them after college when I took some computer programming classes in order to find a real job, so I got […]

Tweakers

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor May 9, 2011 Hardware

These days we have so many digital devices that play audio it isn’t funny. Smartphones, computers, MP3 players, even handheld games. Some of these devices have built in speakers to let you play audio, but most of them just come with earbuds, if they have anything at all. For the most part, those speakers are […]

SpamCop.net

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor April 11, 2011 Service

Everyone hates spam. I’m not talking about the canned luncheon meat that has many fans and detractors, I’m talking about the untold volumes of unwanted e-mail that fills your mailbox, offering you “opportunities” to have larger breasts, lose weight quickly, to make millions with no effort using Multi-Level-Marketing, or to gain ill-gotten millions by helping […]

Plain Text

by Scott Roche March 28, 2011 iOS

I’m a big fan of programs that do precisely what I need them to do – no more, no less. It seems that the folks at Hog Bay Software are of the same mind, because their free app Plain Text is a great example of just that. I’ve been enjoying my iPhone immensely and one […]

[Editor – Sorry for the delay in getting this one out folks. Unfortunately, there is little that you can do when your guts kick you in themselves. Hope you enjoy.] Ever go off somewhere, to a meeting, or to visit a friend, and realize that you wanted to show something on your computer to someone? […]

AVG Anti-Virus

by Scott Roche January 31, 2011 Featured

My personal philosophy when it comes to anti-viruses is, so long as you follow a few simple rules they shouldn’t be necessary. Most of the big name commercial anti-virus packages are what I call “bloat-ware”. They slow down even the newest computers and in my experience either lull people into a false sense of security […]

Craptech: The Apple iPad Dock

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor January 17, 2011 Craptech

  Normally, here at The Nifty Tech Blog, we try to bring you examples of the best and most useful technology available. If it doesn’t measure up to that yardstick, we just don’t mention it. Or we wait and watch it to see if it manages to rise above the pack and ask for our […]

Scrambled Bits – Part Three: TrueCrypt

by Scott Roche January 3, 2011 Featured

In parts one and two of this series I talked to you about the encryption software native to the newer versions of Windows. Contrary to what some would like to believe there are a lot of older versions of Windows still running around out there. There are also a number of operating systems other than […]
