Bittorrent for the Droid and Droid X

Bittorrent is considered by many to be the best way for downloading large files to the pc and mac because it breaks it up into smaller pieces, which are then shared amongst seeders (people who have the whole file) and leechers (people who are downloading) who upload the pieces they have to other users while downloading from other users in the swarm the pieces they need until they have the whole thing. Bittorrent isn’t just limited to the desktop or can be crontrolled remotely via the Android.

How Do You Talk To a Developer?

As often as people complain that they can’t find a developer for their startup, they complain just as much that they cannot talk to a developer once they have found one. It has come up time and again in panels that programmers speak a foreign language to them and that they have trouble getting through and letting the hackers know what needs to be coded. Why is this a repetitive problem and how can it be fixed?

Twitter Apps for the Droid and Droid X

With all the social media integration of smart phones, it’s important to have proper access to your social networks. Since the two most popular social networks are Facebook and Twitter, it’s important to have the proper apps to access both. The only app for Facebook is the mediocre Facebook app, but there are a myriad of choices to access Twitter with.

Transferring your iTunes and iPhoto to a New Hard Drive

I do a lot of work on my Macbook Pro. I also use it to manage a lot of media. With the more movies and music I store on my laptop, the less free space I have, which ultimately reaches a critical mass and the free space on my hard drive. I picked up a Western Digital My Book World Edition Network enabled 1 TB hard drive to store my music, movies, pictures and other assorted media on.

With the introduction of the new Droid X this week, I thought it was time to revisit all the apps that have been reviewed on JustJon.Net so far and see what apps were must have for the new phone. These are the apps that I find to be the most used, must have apps to use for the Droid that should be as necessary to the Droid X.

I Am Running the Damon Runyon Yankee Stadium 5K

In my continuing desire to keep running and to run with my friends, I have signed up to run through Yankee Stadium for the Damon Runyon 5K. This unique opportunity helps raise money for cancer research and gives an unusual tour of Yankee Stadium that I couldn’t pass up, since it is an intersection of my interests of the New York Yankees, running and working with charities.

Review: Couch to 10K

Ever since the initial February challenge, I’ve been running. I not only used Couch to 5K to prepare for the Bronx Zoo Run For the Wild, but I kept running even after that race. Wanting to take my training even further, I began using the Couch to 10k program in order to increase my distance and stamina.

Using Social Media TO ROCK!

On this festive July 4 holiday weekend, my friend Missy told me a story of rock music and social media that I felt was worth sharing (with her permission). A tale that shows how a musician can show they care by connecting with fans and helping them connect.

Blogiversary

On July 1, 2009, I wrote how Your Medium is Your Message in response to something that was said at a panel that marginalized the role of technology in Social Media. From there, I wanted to continue my point and began weekly blogging and a year later, I continue to write, bringing us to this anniversary.
