iPhone swap

If you have the old iphone, you can sell it back and get cash back. http://www.freeiphoneswap.com/

I will be keeping my iphone and have no plan to switch to the new 3G phone primarily because of the increase in data plan price. Since the software upgrade applies to both old and new phones, other than speed, which I can live without, it does not really make it inticing to upgrade. The new App Store really brings a new life to the old iphone. There are lots of free apps for the taking and the simple model that apple developed for developers makes it easy for users to find what they need. My only complain is that my battery has been draining faster lately.

Firefox 3

I’ve been using firefox 3 since it was released and I’m glad to say that they finally have a version that persuaded me to switch from Internet Explorer. I just find it so much faster. It also helps to set up your menus properly.

Right-click on where the icons are on top and select customize. Drag the following icons to your icons tab – Bookmarks, New Tab, History, Print. Change the Show option to Icons and Text and click Use Small Icons.  This makes the most commonly used features available anytime. When you click on the Bookmarks icon, it opens a bookmarks window on your left panel. You can toggle this on and off so this makes it easy to click on bookmarks. Click on New Tab and then click on your bookmarks link to open the link on a new tab.

Another useful function is the Edit-Find option. Select Highlight all and as you type in a word, it will higlight the word anywhere it finds it in the page you are browsing.
