Do Plastics Have a Place in the Clean-Energy Future?

Plastics play a huge part in modern life. Without plastics, we wouldn’t have the technologies, innovations, or comforts that we enjoy and benefit from.

Plastics are a major part of our electronic devices too. If we didn’t have plastic for cases and components, our tablets, phones, and computers would be made completely from metals, leaving us with tech that would be impractical, heavy, and prone to overheating.

Plastics are versatile, inexpensive, lightweight, strong, durable, and corrosion-resistant. They have high thermal and electrical insulation properties, making them perfect for our modern-day gadgets.

Because plastics are so versatile, they can be used to make a variety of products that save energy, help advance technology, and improve the lives of people around the world.

Does Going Paperless Help The Environment?

Have you considered all the great ways going paperless can impact your life?

There are apps for optimizing your workflow, organizing your documents, and even storing your family photos. And the ease of being able to quickly locate what you need, from any device you have access to… wonderful.

Another reason people have for going paperless is to help the environment and save trees.

We get reminders in our emails to consider the environment before printing, and paper bills urging us to “Go Green” by opting into paperless billing.

These very social ways of urging people to go paperless imply that communicating electronically is greener than using paper.

I will tell you my personal opinion about those alternative styluses that are offered by Wacom and Adonit you can buy instead of an Apple Pencil. I tested them for 6 months and came to a brutally honest conclusion.

Can Your Company Survive in a Digital World?

In the world of business, everything is being influenced by the digital revolution. Technology and the internet have either contributed to the explosion or disruption of businesses around the world.

There’s almost no business out there today that can get away with not being digital, at least, not for long.

“Virtually every Forbes Global 2000 company is on some sort of digital transformation journey.” -Michael Gale, partner at PulsePoint group and founder of Strategic Oxygen.

When I say “going digital”, what exactly does that mean?

There’s No ALL-IN-ONE App. Here’s How You Can Fix That.

The more we rely on our computers, tablets, and phones to communicate, do our work, and collaborate with others, the more we see areas where we could use a good app.

Apps help us solve problems in our work and daily lives by focusing on a specific function, and doing it exceptionally well.

An app like a ToDoist or Things 3, which both are all-around scheduling and task management tools, can help you keep all of your projects and appointments neatly organized. It’s just two examples of the many highly useful apps people download and use every day to make going paperless easy.

Apps are cloud compatible, cost-effective, portable, and easy to sync across all of your devices.
And as more and more business apps become available, you’ll find that you want to use more than one to organize and manage your workflow.

App Overwhelm And The Myth of Multitasking

Apps are terrific for creating order in your personal life and in your workflow.

You can find apps to help you preserve family photos, convert documents to PDF, annotate, take notes by hand, convert handwritten notes to text, manage email, create calendars, keep task lists, and so much more!

GoodNotes 5 – What will it look like

GoodNotes1 was developed and released by Steve Chan back in 2011. Fast-forward to Spring 2018, and we have GoodNotes4―the latest version of the handwriting note-taking app. Many people love GoodNotes4 for its stability and great handwriting-to-text conversion capabilities, as well as the awesome PDF Annotation features (as I showed to you in my videos). However, the program has gained a bit of dust over the years, especially if you compare it to Noteshelf2 (click here to compare) which was released end 2017. The UI and document organization of GoodNotes4 is no longer up-to-date. This is causing people to raise their voice in favor of a new up-to-date version.

Why PaperLike is The Best Screen Protector for Your iPad

I tested loads of screen protectors (and tempered glass) on my iPad Air, iPad Pro 12.9 and iPhones. Either, most of them were very bad to put on (could not avoid air bubbles) or they reduced responsiveness of my input resulting in a bad user experience. But finally….I found two screen protectors that I now use in combination on my iPad Pro 12.9 and it just works very nice!
