6 Ways to Get the Most Out Of Business Dashboards

Business dashboards are all the rage in companies around the world. Some companies use them solely to help senior management with decision making while others use them company wide. Many businesses still use manual dashboards created using spreadsheet programs but the trend now is to automate the process.

5 Must Have Social Media & Productivity Chrome Extensions

Over the past year I’ve really worked at giving a variety of web browsers a fair shake at becoming my go to browser for every day use.  I’ve used the major players such as IE, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and even gave RockMelt a spin (see here for my review of that platform).  While I have found myself predominately using Chrome for a variety of reasons such as speed, performance, UI and quite frankly I love the extension platform.  I’m not

Dropbox It Like It’s Hot

I love it when a company does one thing, and does it extremely well.  Cloud storage is definitely a growing technology, but for the most part, too complicated for the masses to adopt.  Most people outside of tech still don’t get it, and probably won’t for some time.  It’s a shame too, because storage in the cloud is so stinking convenient.  Not having to worry about carrying a portable hard drive, thumb drive, or the right device is extremely liberating.
