cell phones for everyone

how is this for numbers…

by 2013 MORE than 100% of the US population will have cell phones (i guess that accounts for the 2 that i carry on a daily basis). anyway – i do not know what is going to happen to the telephone number structure (thomas edison would be scratching his head).

that being said – at this point in time there are about 5 phone numbers associated with my name (2x verizon broadband cards, 2 cell phones, one work number and one home – 6 for those counting).

what will 2013 bring – wait and see 🙂

shoeboxed

i keep coming across web pages that i find not only interesting, but really useful! the latest is shoebox.com. so i have been working on re-establishing my consulting and thinking about buying software and some hardware for the business – but you always want to keep those receipts on hand (especially for tax purposes). enter shoebox…

for example you buy a piece of software and the system asks where you would like to send the receipt. generally what i do it get it into my inbox and then file it into another “purchases” folder. sorting though that later can be annoying so why not another way.

shoebox gives you an email address that you would put into the system. following a purchase you can have the receipt sent to shoebox and then put the receipt into a personal, business, other category and the system knows where the receipt is from (amazon, buy.com etc) and a total amount spent. easy! you can also upload printed receipts via a scanned image file or forward a receipt you may have received from another purchase into the system.

log it and “box” it and you are ready to go. take a look!
