13 top tips for better mobile working

Work better, smarter, and faster with PC Advisor

We've put together 13 top tips to ensure that if you are working on the go, you are working better, smarter, and faster.

Instantly find yourself on a Google Map

Working on the go can be pain, especially when you need a quick set of directions or want to find a good place to eat in the neighbourhood. You'll have to open Google Maps, manually enter your current address (assuming that you even know the coffee shop's address), and finally search for what you need.

Instead of going through that routine, try installing the Geode Firefox extension and the Google Maps and Geode Greasemonkey script. Armed with them, the next time you visit Google Maps you'll see a new 'Current Position' link next to the search box that will instantly locate you on a map. And when Firefox 3.1 is released, you won't need the Geode extension at all.

  1. Work better, smarter, and faster
  2. Automatically lock your laptop
  3. Send group SMS messages and name that tune
  4. Take a tube map with you
  5. Instantly find yourself on a Google Map
