Today we launched our newest product, the Genius QR Code. What does it do? Glad you asked.
The Genius QR Code is a QR code that you can update at any time and even change what it does. You can send someone to a website, give them a coupon, post to their facebook or twitter, invite them to follow you, give them your location, give them directions to your locations, give them your contact card, and more. With our built in scheduler you can make your QR code change on it’s own. You can have your QR code go to your website but offer a promo from 3pm to 4pm* allowing the coupon to change and display your promo without you having to watch the clock, drop everything, and change it.
These codes also have tracking stats so you can view the scans per month or day. We are adding Google analytic support and plan to have this feature available before the end of April. More feature to come include applet support, closest event, coupon/Info randomizer, and more. You can find out more about these new Genius QR Codes at geniusqrcodes.com.
*Time currently EST, timezone support will be available by the end of June.
I stumbled upon a neat piece of software the other day called mouse jiggler. We've all had it happen, your watching a movie on your laptop and all of the sudden the monitor goes out. You reach for your mouse and swipe the pad to bring your screen back on. Then (if your me) you change your power settings and tell the computer to stay on. Movie ends, you have to remember to put it back or the battery will die the first time you walk away and get distracted by a squirrel out the window. This neat little utility will actually fake a mouse jiggle every few minutes, and your pc doesn't know the difference, Avoid the embarrassing AC~DC screen saver poping up in the middle of an important business PowerPoint presentation. Now for windows media player or VLC, a mouse jiggle means the playback controls pop up on your screen. To bypass this you simply press the Zen Jiggle checkbox for an invisible mouse jiggle that will keep your computer awake without disturbing your movie. You can download mouse jiggler here.
VLC is without a doubt the best media player we've found. It handles almost every format known to man, can play locally or stream, and comes in a portable version. Why deal with the aggravation of QuickTime, windows media player, or worst of all iTunes when this all-in-one media player is easy to use, extremely robust, can handle multiple formats, and did we mention it's free?
This program is the ultimate desktop organization software. This software allows you to make boxes or "fences" on your desktop with titles. You can then drag your icons into these fences to arrange them into groups.
|You can create fences manually or the software will create them for you. You are also able to change the color of your fences.|
This is not an app for productivity. This is a neat app that will show he weather for your area and will also animate your desktop background in accordance with the weather. If you run a netbook with a lot of applications, this is probably just going to be a waste of resources. However, if you only use the internet to shop and facebook, you might find this application will add a bit of pizazz to your PC.
