Techie Tuesday

Our house was been a little distracted by our governor's state of the State address. We listened to Governor Granholm talk about the thousands of new jobs, industries and growth in our state. While it's wonderful to hear someone so optimistic, I didn't hear a lot of realism in it. I worry about our state, for a number of reasons. I mostly worry about the taxes and debt to be saddled on the working and businesses. At some point, we will no longer be able to carry the load. Any of us.

So on to technology news. Google Earth has a new version out. Download it at Google Earth. Oceans have been added, along with historical sites.

Do you want to know what is on your computer? And the license numbers? Best program on the planet is a program called Belarc. Download it here.

Everyone is raving about Adobe Elements. It's a terrific photo-editing software for about $100 (after 30 day trial). Check it out here. I am still a fan of Picasa with the price tag of FREE. Check it out here.

And on the remote possibility that there is a reader of this blog who uses IE, v 8.0 is out. You can download it here. I am typing this from my Mac and my keyboard kept freezing ... wonder why.... ;)

So that's it for now. Lots in store for next Techie Tuesday. Until then, don't chew with your mouth full.
