Get organized quickly with Swift To-Do List

Getting organized isn’t easy for everyone. Some people have trouble getting started. Some, don’t even have a clue WHERE to start. This is one of the reasons why I like applications like Swift To-Do List. It’s an organization application for Windows.

With Swift To-Do List, you can manage both tasks and notes. Each task can have its own notes; and you can create separate full note pages, or memos, with rich text support, right in the to-do list tree.  The To-Do List Tree has icons that help you organize and print your to-do lists and memos.  You can choose from more than 140 icons in up to 4 sizes.  You can also easily reorder your to-do lists using drag and drop.

Swift To-Do List includes recurring tasks support. Setting it up is extremely easy and is very flexible. It has many different recurrence patterns to choose from including, hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, monthly on day of week, yearly, yearly on day of week, and X days after completion. With these varied options, it’s possible to setup recurrences like, the last Friday of every month, or the first Monday in January, or every Tuesday and Thursday, or 5 days after the task is completed. Unique feature: Swift To-Do List also lets you preview the next 10 times the task is going to recur.

Reminders can be easily set for any of your tasks with just a few clicks. Swift To-Do List has great reminder support. The snoozing of reminders is really easy and flexible. You can even receive email reminders and task recurrence notifications sent to you directly from the program.

Swift To-Do List has extended support for rich formatting in its notes section of your task or reminder.  You can import notes and memos from MS Word DOC and DOCX files, HTML files, web-archive MHT files, OpenOffice ODT files, text TXT files, rich text RTF files, and e-book ePUB files. You can also export notes and memos to PDF files as well as all the formats noted above.

There’s a lot to like from Swift To-Do List; but the appearance of the app is a bit on the campy side.  The icons are a bit too detailed and the animations it employs by default aren’t really needed and take away from the awesome functionality of this program.  If you don’t use the to-do list in your mail client (like Outlook), or in Yahoo! Gmail or Outlook.com; or if that’s just too much pomp for the circumstance, you might want to give this app a look.

Windows 8 still a bit glitchy

Microsoft released the Windows 8 Release Preview on, 31-May-12. I’ve pulled down the preview, with all of the Metro Apps and installed it…and then I promptly nuked my Asus Eee T101MT Touch netbook and restored Windows 7 to it.

Why?  Well, that’s pretty simple…

The OS couldn’t turn on the Wi-Fi Radio.

I have Comcast cable internet coming into the house providing me with a speedy 50Mbps down/20Mbps up pipe.  I’ve got 802.11g/n Wi-Fi in the house as well, and I know that when things are humming right and cooking with gas, I can push 22-25MB/s of data across my home network (That’s equivalent to 176-200Mpbs, kids…).  Oh yes… It’s a beautiful thing.

Soft32 will continue to provide in depth, thought provoking analysis on all major platform upgrades and advances, and the summer of 2012 looks to be a very active season.  There’s a lot happening in the desktop operating system world right now. So after downloading the 2.65GB ISO image of the 32bit version of Windows 8 Release Preview, with Apps last night, I set out to install the revised OS on my T101MT so that I could begin evaluating the delta (or change) between it and the Consumer Preview.

I plugged the Eee PC into one of the five wired Ethernet ports of the network switch I have in my home office and turned off the Wi-Fi radio. Over the years, I’ve learned that having more than one active network adapter running at the same time on a single PC (like having the Wi-Fi radio on and connected to your wireless router or access point while having a network cable plugged into your wired Ethernet port) can cause network performance issues on Windows PC’s.  After many conversations with Microsoft technicians and technical beta team leads, I’ve learned that a Windows PC can become confused when trying to determine which network adapter to send and receive IP traffic through if more than one networking adapter is active in the same PC at once.  So, I turned the Wi-Fi radio in the Eee PC off after plugging in the Ethernet cable. It seemed reasonable, logical, and it’s what my experience has taught me to do over the years.

Yeah…someone please remind me not to do that again…Big mistake.

After Windows 8 Release Preview installed and I unplugged the Ethernet cable from the netbooks LAN port, I couldn’t get the wireless radio to turn on to save my life.  I fiddled with every setting and registry nugget I could find. I pulled the driver out, deleted the files and let the PC find everything again to no avail.

After a couple hours, I threw in the towel and activated the recovery partition on the netbook. I blew the entire contents of the PC and will start over from scratch this weekend…this time, leaving the wireless network adapter on after plugging in the Ethernet cable.

Come back next time, and I’ll give you the run down on what actually happened, why it happened and what this means to the Windows computing public in general.

Asus Eee Pad MeMo

While tablet PC’s now seem to dominate the market, there are still uses for smaller devices that one can simply put into one’s pocket. While tablets may have substantially bigger displays, there are people who might wish for a device with similar features to what a tablet may have but one that does not always need to be carried around by hand. Hence there are tablets like the new Asus Eee Pad MeMo that are developed to fill up such needs.

The new Eee Pad MeMo from Asus features a 7.1″ capacitive touch screen display that makes it just small enough to fit into a jacket pocket, something that bigger tablets may not be able to do. It becomes quite a handy tablet to make handwritten notes as well as use for a variety of other features. Its features certainly do make it quite a capable tablet that can be comparable to its bigger relatives.

As displayed at CeBit in Hanover, Germany the upcoming Asus Eee Pad MeMo features a 1.2GHz Qualcomm 8260 processor, 1GB RAM and storage options of 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. It also comes with a 5MP rear facing camera with Led flash, a 1.2MP front facing camera as well as HSPA, WiFi and Bluetooth support. Other features include a GPS, G-sensor, proximity sensor, e-compass and a micro HDMI port. Although the release date for the Asus Eee Pad MeMo is expected to be set around June of this year, the expected pricing has already been provided. The 8 and 16GB model is expected to cost around US$690 while the 32 to 64GB versions expected to go for around US$965.
