App Recommendation: CamScanner


I recently had need of a quick scanning app so I could send my brother-in-law his college notes. He had left his notebook home over the weekend, and needed his notes in it to study for a test. My father-in-law asked me to scan them with our flatbed scanner, but a geekier method was top of mind.

Why boot up the dusty ol’ desktop when I have a zippy Android phone right here?

CamScanner to the rescue! Continue reading App Recommendation: CamScanner

My Road ID is here!


It’s so simple. It makes so much sense.

Road ID

As my friend Eric just posted on Facebook,

I have run with a Road ID for 1000’s of miles. You never know what might happen out there. Bears, cars, wolves, cars…

So true, Eric. So true.

For those who don’t know what a Road ID is, here ya go.

If you are a runner, cyclist, triathlete or just an active person, Road ID is for you. In the event of an accident, if you can’t speak for yourself, your Road ID will. It’s not just a piece of gear – it’s peace of mind.

I recently caught the running bug and thought this was a good addition to my fitness arsenal. And because I’m a geek. Love just about any opportunity to utilize the world wide web in interesting ways. And one that could help my physical well-being in an emergency seemed like a good idea.

I opted for the Wrist ID Elite Interactive. The Interactive versions allow you to create an online profile that first responders can access by entering a serial and pin number that is engraved on the back.
