116 Ways to Improve Your PC and Technology Skills

I’m always on the hunt for good ideas on being more productive and using technology wisely. Gina Trapani’s Upgrade Your Life: The Lifehacker Guide to Working Smarter, Faster, Better fits the bill. She offers 116 useful Hacks (workarounds or shortcuts) including:

* Empty Your Inbox and Keep it Empty
* Craft Effective Messages (E-mail)
* Organize Your Documents Folder
* Organize Your Digital Photos
* Build Your Personal Wikipedia

Trapani’s book is generally user-friendly though certain sections left me lost. The book can be used for both PC and MAC users. Trapani references a number of websites and software programs to enhance and improve your computer experience.

Ultimately the book will make you a more organized and productive employee, manager or businessperson.
