Twitter usage increases in Norway and how to get old mobile phones (ie. w810i) on Twitter
Any-ways, having a blog I mixed that up with Twitter with TwitterFeed (its just really a feed from my blog to my twitter account) and then having the Twitter application in Facebook feeding from Twitter to my Facebook status field, suddenly I have created a little mashup and am so proud!
BUT, I dont own an iPhone, but obviously want to spam everyone with meaningless trivia from my daily life. So what to do? Tata!! I found the solution: Jitter. A tiny free Java application created by Abiro. It works on pretty much any phone supporting MIDlets. Such as my old w810i. Technology is wonderful! Hurrah!

Syncronise your mobile phone with iTunes
Salling Media Sync synchronizes playlists, music, and podcasts from iTunes onto your mobile phone. It's free to use, but when registered it intelligently updates your phone, which is much faster.

Can an old Mac without the Apple Remote use FrontRow?
One altenative is the Keyspan Express Remote Control sold at Amazon for $46.24. (white image)
Or one can buy an original Apple Remote, around 20 Dollar, and then buy a IR receiver. This one is enabling the Apple Remote for every old Mac without IR with Twisted Melon's Manta TR1.
Broken Apple Remote for your Mac with IR and bought a new remote? If your Apple Remote has been locked to your Mac, it must be unlocked: Apple icon -> System Prefs - > Security -> And if it is connected to your Max: This Mac will only work with the connected remote. Click: Delte connection (not quite sure about the specific wording.. :)

Save files online (and syncing) them too
- Skydrive (5gb free),
- MSN shared folder,
- Office Live (integrated with the MS Office suite)
- Gdisk (a software that turns your GMail account into a portable hard drive)
-mailbigfiles.com (not really storage as such, only another way of distributing large files rather than sending via email, but I find their free service better than YouSendits)
-YouSendit(not really storage as such, only another way of distributing large files rather than sending via email)
- Amazon S3 ($0.15 per GB-Month of storage used AND monthly trafic cost)
- Apples mobile.me (Individual One-year subscription $99)
And finally my favourite: Dropbox (invitation only, but giving you 2gb free, with cross-platform functionality and web interface too. And its just drag and drop!)

Unlock several files at once - osx
I sent the company an email with some questions and rapidly got a reply:
Here's how to lock/unlock files on external drives by LockMeBaby:
1) Uncheck "Run in safe mode" in the preference panel.
2) Select "/ (Root)" from the popup as browser's root directory.
3) In the leftmost column, you'll find a directory "Volumes". Your
external drives should be listed under "Volumes" directory.
Hope this helps and please be careful when you turn off "Safe mode" as
many system-related files appear in LockMeBaby's browser.

PowerPoint Tip: AutoFit (automatically resize text)
In PowerPoint AutoFit intentionally shrinks the size of text as large amounts are added to a slide. The top complaint about PowerPoint slide presentations is text that is too small. PowerPoint Design templates were originally created to force good design by setting font size automatically. The AutoFit feature defeats this purpose and actually encourages too much text on slides by shrinking it as you type, allowing people to use fonts too small to be seen.
To turn AutoFit off:
Choose Tools from the pull-down menu
Click the tab for AutoFormat As You Type
Uncheck the 2 options under the Apply as you type section:
Click OK. The change applies to active and future PowerPoint presentations, old presentations are not affected.

Mail big files for free
This site is free too, but has a 2gb (!) limit. Though you have to register and tried it once and it just stopped. So I guess its not that good after all...?
Free too, 2gb limit. Havent tried it yet. But both are worth a shot.

Changing a XP folder's name text colour
You can then set your folder view to display compressed folders in blue (Tools, Folder Option, View, Show encrypted or compressed NTFS files in colour)
It will only slow things down a little as the operating system has to decompress the data when accessing it. Never seen it corrupt data.
Thanks to toms hardware for making me sleep better at night.. :)

Steve and Bill meet again
Quite interesting how those guys are really similar (appearance, computer knowledge, voice etc), yet Steve always is a bit cooler. Just like Macs.. :P
A short summary of the meeting can be read: http://www.nytimes.com/technology/
