In the last couple of days I’ve been trying to improve my productivity. I’m productive, but there’s always room for improvement right? Well here’s a nifty thing I started doing. I use google calendar to input all my important dates for school and my personal life. On my blackberry I installed the google sync Application so whenever I make a change on google calendar, or on my phone it’s updated everywhere. This has actually helped me become more efficient. I also entered my cell number into google calendar and it sends me an sms reminder at a predetermined time before my appointment. All that is missing now is to sync it with my macbook pro once I get it. To do that I will use Spanning Sync which is known to be great when syncing google calendar and iCal.
For a while now I have been avoiding long distance charges from Rogers, Fido by using skype. In the states I think there are no long distance for calling another number in the states. However there are for calling Canada and other countries. This tutorial will teach you how to escape these fees by using skype to call numbers in the US, Canada and other countries. Firstly you have to be located in the US or Canada (Trace IP).
1. Go to Skype Subscriptions and buy whichever subscription is appropriate for you.
2.If you want the caller id to display your cellphone number Set it up in Skype Settings
4. Setup your phone with your skype account, and your number.
5.Whenever you want to make a long distance call, just open the skype application you chose on your phone and dial it from there and save money!
