Android Tip: Use Any Cut to create a Quick SMS list.

11.05.2008 @ 1:06 PM in Technology
I do a lot of text messaging, most of which is either to Twitter, BrightKite, or John. A caveat with smartphones is that with more functionality comes more steps to get to the simplest of actions. Luckily, Android lets you put shortcuts to your favorite apps, email labels, and contacts right on your homescreen. Any Cut, a free app from the Android Market, unlocks even more possibilities. This tip shows you how to use folders and Any Cut to organize a two tap quick SMS list.

Any Cut allows you to create shortcut icons on your homescreen that link directly to actions like calling a number, sending an SMS, or accessing settings like wifi. First things first, find and install Any Cut from the Android Market. Next, go to your home screen and longpress (hold your finger down for a second) on a blank spot. The "Add to Home" menu will pop up. Expand "Shortcut" and select a folder. Now we have a folder named "Folder." That's a little unimaginative, lets change that. Tap on the folder and it will expand into a blank window. Longpress on the title bar (over the "folder") and give it a new name. I chose "Quick." Tap the "X" to close the window, pull up the applications drawer, and launch Any Cut. Select New Shortcut and then "Direct Text Message." Scroll through and find your contact. I'm going to add Twitter, since I'm pretty much addicted to it. You have the option to shorten the name if you'd like. Notice the contact's icon serves as the shortcut icon. If you don't have a picture set, it will just show an SMS bubble. Hit OK. The Shortcut lands on the homescreen by default. We want it in that folder. Longpress on the icon until it detaches and you get some haptic love (that little vibrate you feel). now drag it over the folder and release. Rinse and repeat Any Cut until you have your quick launch folder just the way you like it. Remember, Any Cut lets you create shortcuts for nearly any action, and you can even write your own!

Buffaview – Old Editions Bookshop and Cafe

I felt a little empowered after voting, and so I decided that I would walk
downtown to my bus. I stopped by Starbucks (free coffee if you voted, ya
know), and now I'm sitting at an entirely new spot. At the corner of E.
Huron and Sycamore is a quaint little bookshop with a faded Billy Joel
poster. I'm suprised its still here.

Anyways... GO VOTE!

Circuit City to Close 155 Stores, no plugs pulled in WNY

11.03.2008 @ 1:35 PM in Buffalo, Technology
Going the way of Comp USA (though not a total fold), Cicuit City announced today that they are closing 155 stores and pulling out of 12 market areas. Terminations in departments like Installations and Firedog should begin within 48 hours. A quick look at the list shows that the Western New York locations are safe for now; don't expect any fire sales just yet. Circuit City also plans on reducing the number of "future store openings and aggressively renegotiating certain leases." Maybe this means we won't be seeing as many Best Buys popping up next to every Circuit City. Or will we? Store Closings - Circuit City

Top Chef Season 5 is Bellyrific

11.03.2008 @ 12:32 PM in Lifestream
If I ever really needed an excuse to watch Top Chef, I have one now. Season 5 sets in New York and premiers on November 12th @ 10PM. Those who have a hankering for furry Long Island boys who love to cook will not be disappointed....

Meet Daniel "Danny" Gagnon. He's 27, and "currently serves as the Chef de Cuisine at the Babylon Carriage House, one of the most popular restaurants in Long Island, NY." He cooks with an Italian/Asian Fusion and his personal motto is "No Guts, No Glory, No Gold." And boy, does he have guts.

Cute, furry Guts. I think his motto coincides with a gratuitous belly flash, which is fine by me. Top Chef has another furry food fellow contestant this year, though a bit more discreet than Danny. His name is Richard and he's also 27, but likes to keep his cooking "simple and infused with natural harmony versus chaotic noise." He hails from San Diego.
