  • News: Why You Should Take a Pay Cut to Skip Lunch

    Recently, PCWorld's Business Center has posted a couple of articles that debate whether it's in the best interest of employees to take a 10 percent pay cut to telecommute or not to do so. I'm not going to get embroiled in the controversy over the joys of working at home versus the pleasures of working at the office because, honestly, if I had the choice I wouldn't work at all. But since that "dream job" choice is impractical for me and (I suspect) for many of you, I've developed an alternative action plan that will enable you to take a 10 percent pay cut regardless of where you work.

  • News: Eye-Fi connects to iPhone, gets more useful

    I've been using the Eye-Fi series of Wi-Fi-enabled memory cards for a couple of years now. But I have to admit, they've always been cooler on paper than in practice. Yes, they let your camera connect to a Wi-Fi network and upload photos to photo-sharing services and even back to your Mac, and there's some Wi-Fi-based geotagging capability. But camera interfaces just aren't rich enough to give users control over the Eye-Fi's features out in the field, and most of the places I take pictures don't have Wi-Fi. Without a Wi-Fi connection, there's no way to send back the pictures and the geotagging feature won't work, either.
