Here’s a neat little website meant to keep you aware of the time you are spending on various projects. The ClockWork Timer let’s you fill in different tasks, and start and stop timers while you perform them to keep you on track. You can even run multiple timers at once if you are into multi-tasking. You can pause the timer if you get interrupted, and hit Done once complete. It will save a list of all tasks you have marked done. Check out the site for a demo.

During my normal interweb travels for the day, I came across a service that many are calling a “must-have”. Backpack is an ingenious organizational tool that is very customizable. There is no download or installation required, as all data is housed on their servers. You can use it to keep track of inventory, plan a meeting or business trip, or even use it for brainstorming. Uploaded files can be integrated into your outline, keeping everything together. Even better, you can share these outlines with others. If there is an important date you need to be reminded of, Backpack will send you an email or text message (or both if you prefer) the day before. I will be taking a closer look at the service over the next few days, but until then check out their hefty example page.

One thing that I thoroughly enjoy about being an Internet entrepreneur is that fact that as long as I have an Internet connection and my laptop, I can consider myself to be “at work”. For example, I am currently in New York City on vacation (I live in Seattle) posting this from a Starbuck’s in Times Square which offers the T-Mobile Hotspot service. This allows me to take a break from sightseeing, grab a Tazo Chai, and check my email all at the same time. No need to worry about getting back to the office! Anyone else out there take advantage of the unique situation us Internet business owners get to enjoy?


Nowadays, Internet access is as close as your nearest coffee shop. The trick is finding which one offers Wi-Fi service. The Wi-Fi Digital Hotspotter aims to help in your quest by proving information on signals up to 200 feet away. Using two AAA batteries, the Hotspotter lists signal strength, SSID, channel, and even security status. In other words, all the essentials needed to allow you to judge where you should head if you need quick Wi-Fi access on the go. You can pick one up for about $60.00.

PalmOne has finally made the official announcement of their LifeDrive multimedia PDA. If you are a Palm user, this is the one to look for in the next week or two, which is when they are expected to hit retail. This thing has a 4GB mini hard drive with 16 MB of built-in ROM and a 416MHz XScale processor. Keeping with the times, the LifeDrive also supports 802.11b WiFi and BlueTooth on the Palm OS 5.4 (Garnet) software. A 320 x 480 pixel 65,000 color touch screen round thing thing out. You can expect to drop $500 on this bad boy, but from what reviewers are saying, it may be well worth the price of admission.


One thing that can get very overwhelming as far as business is concerned is email. Personally, I receive over 400 email messages per day. If I didn’t have a system in place to manage it all, I would quickly become a victim of information overload. Your email client can do a lot more than just display electronic messages sent to you from colleagues and friends. We take a look at a few ways to use email to save time, and bring you even more business, after the jump.
