Synch Is Cool & Oh, So Hot

I've been test driving new cars. There's nothing wrong with any of our current vehicles. It's just that my husband gets infected every fall with new car fever. I've learned it's easier to feed his fever than to talk him out of it.


The coolest thing I've noticed about some of the new cars is how you can synch your PDA, iPod, and other magical gadgets with the car. Want an address entered in your GPS? Just synch it from your digital assistant. Synching is hot.

I've heard people say they don't use palm-sized data assistants because it takes too much time or they're intimidated. Au contraire. With this website I'm going to tell you about, you can easily update personal items, list appointments, make notes, and so much more.

Dot What?

File Extension Library is a cool site that defines those cryptic 3 letters at the end of every file name. You know, there's a dot then 3 letters. One you probably know is dot doc (.doc) which is a Microsoft Word Document file. You can use the site to look up an extension if you don't know what application was used to create the file.

Palm Address Files

That's really useful, but what I want to tell you about their site is ABA files. These are extensions used as palm address book files. They offer options to synchronize devices with just the touch of a button. Plus, the site has an automatic installer that enables upgrading to whatever the current version is with a simple click. And the installer is easy to install too.

Takeaway Truth

If you've been hesitant to use some of the new time-saving devices and websites, take the leap. You'll probably find the learning curve small and the time saved large.
