Links of the Week: Kindle stuff and who’s a friend?
May is National Bike Month. If you’re in the Sacramento region go here to sign up to participate and win prizes. They have a revamped website and a new logo this year. Huge improvement. Google your region and the words May is Bike Month, and I bet you can find something in your area as well. We have a bit of a competition at work and I hope to be the top rider for our department and the #1 female rider for my company.
Amazon this week released the Send to Kindle App for Mac. I’m in love. The PC version has been out for awhile. But we’re a Mac family. It’s so quick and easy. Sending documents/files to your Kindle or Kindle App on your mobile device is free if done over wifi. Did I mention I was in love? Something fierce.
Google Drive got released this week. I don’t like putting all my eggs in the Google basket, but I am a heavy user of Google Docs. It’s just simpler sometimes. Check out the Hands on With Google Drive post from The Verge. Don’t forget about Google’s “terms of service”.
I’m not proud to admit that I’ve gotten myself wrapped up in following the blog His Giant Mistake - a blog about one woman’s discovery of her husband’s cheating ways. But damn.. I went back to the original post and read every post from the beginning, and it’s been better than any book I’ve read in the last few weeks.
I did a little survey on Twitter this week about people’s definition of “Friends” on Facebook. Interesting results. I tend to keep my “friend” list to people I actually consider friends or close family members. I have relatives I don’t know very well that have tried to friend me, and I clicked the ignore button. Too much? The majority of responses were that people kept their personal FB accounts to true friends. I do have some online book blogger friends in my personal Facebook even though I have never met them in real life, but if you saw some of the interesting emails that fly back and forth between us sometimes… well, let’s just say these are people that I am so on the same wavelength with. There were some responses that said Facebook was a definite networking thing for them. I’ve been using my Facebook Page more and have been enjoying it. What about you? Are your Facebook Friends really “friends”??
And lastly, my favorite thing I saw on Pinterest this week. *shifty eyes*
