Tapping Alt + Enter allows you to view the properties of any files or folders you’ve selected.

Upload Robots works just like your favorite flash drive/thumb drive – it lets you easily and quickly share files and photos with friends, co-workers, clients and family. The big differences is that while your flash drive likely lives in your desk drawer or laptop bag (and can be quite easy to lose), Upload Robots lives on the Web. The service is straightforward, simple and intuitive. Pick a file you wish to share. Upload Robots will upload it. (For the less tech-savvy: just imagine the program is grabbing a copy of the file from your computer and storing it out there on the Web.) Then Upload Robots hands you a link. And that link is yours. You can give it to anyone with whom you’d like to share your file, or you can keep it to yourself and use it at a later time when you need access to that file. A lightning-fast video on the Upload Robots “Feature Tour” page zooms through just about everything there is to know in 30 seconds. I’m guessing that, unfortunately, the video flies through everything so quickly that it likely makes the service look more complicated than it actually is to the not-so-technically-inclined. So perhaps skip the video … and just give the service a shot straight from the homepage; it’s free. (Premium services are available for low monthly costs.) Here’s the link: http://www.uploadrobots.com.

1. http://www.fridgewatcher.com – Every time I think I’ve seen it all, another website comes along and wakes me up with a big fat slap in the face. How could I possibly have guessed the existence of a site like FridgeWatcher – a site where people “open up their fridges to others”? I’ve learned that, apparently, every fridge tells a story. And this site is filled with stories about and photos of fridges from around the world to prove it. For example, a recent entry showcased a fridge from Ohio, which was crammed with food (including “at least three jars of pickles”) and covered in magnets from places the owner had visited (like Casa Bonita in Denver). 2. http://tinyurl.com/2azg4qy – Ladies and gentlemen, the moment you’ve all been waiting for. You can now wear your tent when you go camping. 3. http://heidicohen.com/get-your-twitter-mojo/ – An article filled with easy-to-understand Twitter definitions and translations as well as tips for “sparkling” twitter conversations.4. http://www.nudgemail.com – “The easiest way to send yourself reminders.” “Remember everything.” “Reduce e-mail clutter.” Here’s the gist of how Nudgemail works: you write or forward any reminders (via e-mail) to Nudgemail. Then, on the exact day/hour/minute you specified, Nudgemail sends that e-mail reminder right back your way. And that’s it. If it sounds like it might be helpful to you, give it a test, right from the site’s homepage. It’s free and works on any device.5. http://tinyurl.com/2fn4ws5 – You’ve copied tapes. You’ve copied CDs. And now you can copy your old vinyl records. erin pheil is the owner of timeforcake (www.timeforcake.com), a Web design/development studio in Frisco. She can be reached via e-mail at erin@timeforcake.com.
