Stop arguing with your housemates about chores and food shopping.

Given the high price of rental residences in major cities it's hardly surprising that there are more and more share houses these days with several people splitting the cost of the rent and household expenses. In many cases, the first time they meet each other is when they move in - especially when we are talking about student accommodation. It's all good fun at first. Parties every night and new friends to get to know. But then comes the crunch when the place starts to get dirty and one person ends up doing most of the cleaning and another gets lumped with buying the food. That's the point ...  More

Take the hassle out of conference room bookings

You wouldn't think that there would be too many problems in managing physical conference room reservations, would you? One would figure that you just invite people after checking their schedules and then find a room and work out a convenient time for everyone. There are even models in Outlook and Google Calendar that work on that system. Unfortunately, it's not always that simple. What tends to happen is that some rooms get double booked while others remain empty - causing frustration on all sides. After years of testing, a company in Cambridge, Massachusetts has put together a faultless, ...  More

Free set of tools including Word, Excel and PowerPoint for your iPhone and iPad

One of the accusations often leveled at Apple over the years is that anything over the basic model often costs an arm and a leg. The cost of an essential item like Office or Photoshop was so expensive that many would rather hunt up a dodgy copy rather than forking out hundreds of dollars to Apple for the privilege of using the original. Things have changed dramatically in recent times however - seemingly due to the immense popularity of iPhone and iPad devices. Nowadays, there are a heap of different Office styled apps available for iOS as well as its individual components like the word ...  More

Turn your iPad into a fire alarm when you are away from home

The iPad has really come of age over the last couple of years. When it started off it was really only promoted as a fun piece of entertainment. Then it transformed the kids game market with absolute user-friendliness for younger users. It then turned into a very useful business tool - to the point where you could virtually run your whole organization from it. Now we see the iPad as a device to safeguard your home. No, I don't mean by turning it into a virtual guard dog (though I'm sure there is an app for that.) FirstFireAlert is a 'world-first' iOS app that turns your iPad into a fire ...  More

When you need something more than a spreadsheet

It's a bit sad really. The fact is, the days of the spreadsheet as we know it, are pretty numbered. While they have served us well, they can be a little cumbersome and better results and analysis can be achieved using other methods.
