Jott’s Web 2.0 Sites Integration

I started using Jott.com this week and it’s useful. I tried it November 07 but the transcription service wasn’t that great and I didn’t get my email very quickly. Seems they’ve worked the bugs and it’s worth checking out again. As I setup more contacts, I noticed that I could even twitter from my cell phone now. That’s cool. They also have a ton of other sites integrated like blogger, Xpenser, and bunch more which I’ve never heard of. Here’s the full list:

SmugMug Picasa Uploader

Finally someone has created the plugin I’ve been thinking about making for almost a year now. You can now upload to smugmug.com directly from Google Picasa.

Great plugin, thanks meejer.com!

Windows Live Writer Beta

This little windows app lets you create your blog entries in a nice little editor on the desktop rather in the browser.

I’m writing from the app now and I have to say its pretty cool.

I used it for another blog on a long message and it did great.

 You can download it here.

Redoxx AirBoss

Well, in a swift (and maybe foolish) click, I bought the Airboss.

You see I’ll be doing lots of travel this year and I love the concept of traveling light: OneBag.com

Well after my own travels, I’ve learned a good bag can be key. So I’m going to give this one a try:

Juding from it popularity with the traveling crowd, it should be pretty good. Price, however, is not on budget side.

Paypal Virtual Cards, Amazon and Roomba

This is a great idea that I’ve reading about but haven’t used until today:

Paypal Virtual Debit Cards FAQ

Basically, its a Mastercard that is good for 1 day with $150.00 spending limit on your paypal account. Great!

So I thought I would try it on a Roomba that I’ve been eyeing:

Unfortunately, its not so obvious where in paypal you might click to get to so check out this post. It contains a link there to point you to the specific place for the virtual cards whether they are paypal approved or not.
