For several years we have provided you with recommendations for really cool software. Our annual software pack represents a solid set of programs that we think everyone should own for every day work and pleasure. This software is good whether or not you are a student, faculty, parent or someone who is just trying get things done on a budget. Let us know in the comments how you like these and if you think we should have included something else.

Considering the circumstances, I assume if you still follow this blog you had a personal connection to Ellie. I did also. The ultimate geek girl was my little sister. My other sister asked several of us if we might be able to contribute to this blog. Initially, figured I was the least likely person to have something to add. And maybe I am. That said, here we are.
Happy New Year from The Pink C!! I know we’re almost a month into the new year, but I wanted to say it anyway. Welcome to all the new readers of the blog and welcome back to all our devoted readers. In this new year as you get your life together or step out in search of adventure, check out the archives for cool reads. We haven’t been posting all too often, but there are three productivity and how-to blogs planned so far (one posts later today) and a couple tech product reviews in the works. In addition, we’ll be doing a follow-up blog on two previous posts about what’s in your bag.

Almost every phone these days has a digital camera built in. But what if you want more? You want better zoom, more precise shooting, or just manually adjusting the shutter speed or aperture? You can’t do that on every phone. So here’s a quick how to for picking a digital camera to use in the place of or in combination with you camera phone.
Ask yourself five questions –
1) What do I plan to take pictures of?
2) Where do I plan to use my camera?
3) How much control over the composition do I want?
I just got word that I am being considered for another position at the company I work for – and it will require me to get another laptop that runs Windows, instead of my trusty MacBook.
I’ve been looking at Toshiba and Lenovo machines as a new work machine. It doesn’t have to be super powerful, just budget friendly and lightweight.
Lenovo has some neat netbooks, but that’s not the size I’m looking for – so I’m looking in the 13.3-15 inch range. The prices online look pretty good, but then again, everything looks great at 3am, right? If I stay within budget, I could probably find a nice machine for around $600, which is a fraction of my MacBook and have a nice work computer.
I love the Android platform for smartphones. Not only can I satisfy my need to be connected via Google 24-7, I can use great apps to make my life a little easier. Not in any particular order are my top Android Apps for the geeky user. Let me know in the comments what apps you like to use. I’d love to find out about new apps from fellow Android users!

There are a lot of SEO (search engine optimization) “gurus” out there, peddling their services to help you become SEO savvy and work on website optimization. They make it seem as if SEO and web optimization is so hard that only the highly skilled can do it, but that could not be further from the truth!
Actually, anyone with a high school reading level and a basic understanding of SEO could optimize a website and generate traffic and business for their website. SEO works off of the theory that properly placed keywords can catapult you to the top rankings in search engines, thus increasing your click-throughs, and potentially people who are going to view your ads or buy your product.
