Pumpkin patch in Snoqualmie River Valley just outside Fall City
I just signed up with Instagram on my Windows Phone, using 6Tag, which allows new account creation, upload directly from a new picture or one already in your library, as well as browsing and tagging other photos. 6Tag has a robust set of filters, and getting robust investment from the developer. Good stuff.
So now let’s make sense of my photography publishing…
InstagramÂ is for sharing snapshots from my phone while on the go
SmugMugÂ is for sharing more developed photos as well as distributing hi-rez originals
PinterestÂ is for aggregating pictures of things I like
FacebookÂ is used by other people in my life who tag me. I rarely use it to publish, too restrictive.
SkydriveÂ is used to share photos with a selected group of people, such as a team at work, family members, and some friends.
The Office Blogs app is a RSS reader on the Windows Phone platform, covering news, tips, how-to for the programs in the Office suite. Includes coverage of PowerPoint, Word, Excel, OneNote, Access, Office 365, and more. v1.3 isÂ a quick update to reflect new branding and colors with the latest release of Office.
This app is a Windows Phone exclusive, available for download here. Works with both WP7 and WP8 devices.
If you don’t have a Windows Phone, point your favorite RSS reader at the main feed from the Office Blogs site to get the latest. Each of the apps on the blog site have their own feeds, so you can narrow coverage by choice. Each app feed is available on their respective home pages.
I wanted to try out the new Nokia Drive beta GPS program, and realized I didn’t have a car mount for the Lumia 920 yet. So I quicklyÂ taped together two old credit cards, added a fold and hole for the adapter, and put two hooks on the back for mounting on the drink holder. Took about 10 minutes to zap together. You can adjust ‘settings’ to other phones as well.
The mount works securely in traffic. Need to adjust the rubber band so that it doesn’t block the top of the screen where text messages appear.
