Keep on Google Keepin' On - Why I'm Moving to Inbox by Gmail and Google Keep and Away from Google Tasks

Image
Long time, no blog.  Yep, now that that's out of the way, let's dig into why I chose to write after a nearly two year hiatus.

I pride myself on being responsive via email. My colleagues probably get sick of me talking about Inbox Zero, and my family probably despise me for keeping a mobile device nearby too often, but it's how I work. Until recently, my workflow has pretty much involved GMail, GCal, GTasks, and GDrive. I have given workshops and presentations on "Striving Towards Inbox Zero", and I haven't had much reason to change. However, Google's increasing attention to Reminders and their lack of love for GTasks have gotten me thinking about alternatives and not holding my breath that they will magically merge the two applications.

FanDuel App Allows Easy Play On The Go

Fantasy sports in general have certainly evolved in the last few years. During the early stages, people had to play fantasy football and fantasy basketball by keeping their own score or sending selections in through the mail through some sort of prehistoric league. These days, it is certainly much easier to get a fantasy sports fix. There are numerous websites that offer standard season-long leagues, but FanDuel offers shorter, one day leagues for those who want to play fast, quick games on a nightly basis. The FanDuel App makes it easier than ever to get everything set up and ready to go.

Since players are signing up for just one day leagues, time is always limited. There are times in which people can’t get to a computer in order to set a roster full of players in time for the games to start. That is why the mobile app has been developed to allow a person to make all the changes they need. A person can sign up for a league and set the roster in a matter of minutes from any smart phon…

So you can record a Screencast on Google Chromebooks - a 60 second intro to Screencastify
