Run Google Tasks on Your Menu Bar

http://www.suberapps.com/2009/02/04/run-google-tasks-on-your-menu-bar/#tb

As you might already know, Google recently gave GTD fans some lovin’ by optimizing Google’s “Tasks” for iPhone and Android. (read more from Google’s Blog) Wouldn’t it be nice if you can also run Google Tasks on your Mac as a menu bar item with the same sleek interface you see on the iPhone or Android? If you had read my previous post on the “Fluid” app, you’ll know by now how you can turn web apps into a native desktop app. Using Fluid with Google Tasks means a free GTD native desktop app on your Mac that syncs with the cloud.

Here’s how:



1) Download Fluid app


2) Install and launch Fluid

Type in this URL in the URL field - http://mail.google.com/tasks/iphone
Type any name you want in the Name field.
Create the app!

3) Convert to MenuExtra SSB

Go to the Google Tasks menu after you have successfully created the app, select “Convert to MenuExtra SSB…” to put Google Tasks on your menu bar.

Now you have Google Tasks natively on your Mac as a menu bar item!


By the way, this tip is also possible with other web apps, especially if they have an iPhone optimized version:

Have fun!

Free Holiday Travel WiFi

Google announced it’s providing WiFi free of charge to 47 airports across the country during the holiday season. (A full list of the airports is here.)

You should use OpenDNS

If you're not yet using OpenDNS to see what's happening on your network - take it from me - you should.

OpenDNS, the world's largest and fastest-growing DNS service, is free to use and gives you the tools to easily see which Web sites are most visited on your network. If you see problem sites in your network stats, you can easily block them with OpenDNS's industry-leading free Web content filtering.

It also makes your network faster and more reliable. OpenDNS will quickly become your most valued tool in your IT toolbox.
