Which CD Case is the Best?

http://www.twitter.com/chrispirillo - If only I had a place to store the compact disc that was on my desk... perhaps in some kind of folio made for discs! Wouldn't it be great to have a DiscFolio? http://live.pirillo.com - http://geeks.pirillo.com

How to Create a Seamless Tile Background Image

http://www.twitter.com/chrispirillo - Sure, you can take a small image and tile it as a background image on your desktop or a web page. However, tiling a small image just doesn't work very well. http://geeks.pirillo.com - http://live.pirillo.com

How Big (or Small) is that Gadget?

http://www.twitter.com/chrispirillo - The object in my hand, my iPhone, has length, width and height like most objects in this Universe. I know the dimensions of it, even. The problem is that sometimes it's kind of hard to picture. http://geeks.pirillo.com - http://live.pirillo.com

The Best Free Desktop News Ticker

http://www.twitter.com/chrispirillo - I don't really watch the news anymore, unless someone sends me a clip. I snack on news stories, just to get a taste of what's going on. How do you digest your news?

How to Get RSS Feeds via Email

http://www.twitter.com/chrispirillo - Wicket is one who believes RSS is dead. He thinks that Twitter has replaced RSS as a means of receiving information. Just about every site out there has an RSS feed, which can be delivered to you via your Email if you choose. http://geeks.pirillo.com - http://live.pirillo.com

What's the Gaudiest Hotel Decor? A Glowing Buddha

http://www.twitter.com/chrispirillo - I was pretty happy that my hotel room during the recent MacHeist event was clean and comfortable. I had clean towels, and nice pictures on the wall. However, there was a glowing Buddha statue in my room. It confuses me. http://live.pirillo.com - http://geeks.pirillo.com

How to Share Music and be Your own DJ

http://www.twitter.com/chrispirillo - I am quite literally all over the musical map. I'll listen to any kind of music. Inevitably, I'll be playing a song and someone has to ask who sings it. Then, of course, they want to know how to download the song. There's a different service now that you can use to share your music with others! http://geeks.pirillo.com - http://live.pirillo.com Distributed by Tubemogul.

How to Create QR Codes and Barcodes

http://www.twitter.com/chrispirillo - You can't tell it, but all the dots and such on my computer screen says live.pirillo.com! You wouldn't be able to detect that with your own eyes, unless you're skilled at reading barcodes. Luckily there is software available to help you. http://geeks.pirillo.com Distributed by Tubemogul.

I'm Yours

http://twitter.com/chrispirillo - Please, don't tell me that I suck - because I know I suck. In fact, if you see anybody here posting negative comments, you can kindly remind them that I know I suck and that they should post a video response showing how they could do better (and they more than likely could). I gave it my bestest. This was embarassing for me, really - I know I can sing off-key. Be grateful that this is about as close as you're ever going to see me come to singing in public. Again, I know I suck - but I still love the song, and Mr. Geek in the Pink (platonically).

How to Edit Text Files on the Web

http://www.twitter.com/chrispirillo - I have yet to find a text editor that is the one to beat all the rest. None of them are perfect, so I try them all. On OS X, there really aren't many I'm impressed with. However, there's another option - on the Web! http://geeks.pirillo.com - http://live.pirillo.com Distributed by Tubemogul.

http://www.backblaze.com/chrispirillo - http://www.spideroak.com/chrispirillo - When is the last time you backed up your important data? I'm talking about things that cannot be reinstalled.

How to Send SMS Text Messages to Groups of Friends

http://geeks.pirillo.com - http://live.pirillo.com - So what is Tatango? It's a free site that allows you to text message umpteen-billion people at once. Standard texting rates will apply, of course. If you have something important to say, why not tell everyone all at once? http://chris.pirillo.com Distributed by Tubemogul.
