I’m a nerdy, tech person who thinks the advent of mobile devices of a great thing. Personally, I think just taking out your phone or tablet to take notes or add something to your calendar is much more convenient than turning on your computer (since unlike a computer, you can take your phone anywhere. Even with a laptop, you can’t just whip it out at the store when you think of something). Here are some stuff I’ve used to help keep things in order.
(And no, I’m not getting any sort of compensation for mentioning these. I just like them!)
Apps/Online Services I Like
I'm currently learning Spanish with this. It gamifies the entire experience, if that's your thing. There is a mobile app for iOS and Android. It's lacking in Asian languages (there's only Vietnamese right now), but they're adding Japanese right now.
Used for keeping a digital archive of notes. I like that it's cross-platform (web, Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Android, Windows 10 Mobile).
I don't listen to it as much these days, but I did manage to find some new artists with it (which is amazing to me, because I tend to have obscure music tastes).
Used for keeping track of weekly tasks. The colored coded tags can be used to organize by category, priority, status, etc.
I like this because of the repeating tasks (can be set to repeat every 1, 2, 3 etc (days/weeks/months), and a separate reminder can be set in addition to the due date. Also it's hawt!
Web Dev Things I Like
It's a little pricey side, but so worth it if you're a website builder or do coding things. 😍 Also Mac OS only unfortunately. So far I haven't found anything comparable (which is why I haven't starting coding on my Windows computer).
I mostly use this for the LESS compiler, but it can also minify your code, so you're not loading gigantic JS and CSS files on your sites. Also it's hilarious (the site is hilarious, the images are hilarious).
Ohhhh man, I used this site when picking colors for posts when working on the GPORG layout. A much better alternative to waiting for Photoshop to open up.
A site that auto-generates some CSS3-specific for you (rotation, gradient backgrounds, etc). Just plug in your numbers and copypaste. Use it with LESS CSS mixins and... 😍😍😍
All of the icons on this site are from FontAwesome. It's 100% CSS-powered, no need for image files. Just drop in a line of JS code, add some CSS classes to your HTML elements, and BAM, you're done.
A huuuuuge must-have for any webdev. It can be as simple as you want or as complex, but you can use it to help simply your CSS code and do some funky color modifications with it.
A LiteSpeed (as opposed to Apache) webserver is required, but it actually works quite well.
The predecessor to LESS, and IMO, more feature-filled and powerful.
It's not perfect, but I love it because it's very versatile and runs on PHP (which I already know). This site runs on Wordpress and you can make it look not so bloggish if you want. 😀
Sites I Like
So if you haven't started learning another language with Duolingo yet, you're missing out on the hilarious/wtf sentences it has you translate. 😀 Here is a good sampling of them, for your viewing pleasure.
A great time waster. This site is like Wikipedia. You start on one page (like say your favorite TV show) and then find yourself clicking through a chain of like 4 or 5 links. Then you'll go "wait, how did I go from American Girls to Abnormal Ammo?"
