Here is a great new Podcast that helps out your Mac OS X productivity, One Minute Tip.

It appears the site just got started, so the tips are few at this point, but I love having these short, little tips in my iTunes playlist.

Career-Op: Reaching for the stars - w/ MP3 Podcast

Career-Op: Reaching for the stars
by Douglas E. Welch, ComputorEdge Magazine

As I write, Spaceship One has won the X Prize, traveling to non-orbital space twice within two weeks. As I watched the news coverage, my thoughts went beyond the immediate accomplishment and onto the lesson that we can all take away from this successful mission. A clearly defined goal could be the most important part of any high-tech career. Without it, we can become timid, only proceeding slowly and incrementally instead of striving to do our very best. If you donít have some compelling goals in your life and your career, you should sit down, today, and do some concentrated thinking.

High-touch high-tech

As the holidays approach, we always come across items like this. Now, I certainly won't be finding one of these under my tree this Christmas, but some of you might find them just the ticket for a little high-tech happiness.

SwedxUSA offers LCD monitors and keyboard in Ash, Beech or Sapele. These high-quality systems are "not simply a veneer, wood strips glued to an ordinary enclosure, these mice, keyboard and LCD displays are actualy embedded in custom crafted wood."

15" monitors - $649 / 17" $795

Career-Op: It's all personal
by Douglas E. Welch, ComputorEdge Magazine

If you work your high-tech magic at the end of a phone line, or deep in the heart of a large corporation, you can easily forget that everything you do is directly important to some other person. Sometimes we hide behind corporate bureaucracy or simple indifference, but the truth is, all high-tech work is personal. All technology is meant to be used by another human being and if you want to be successful in your high-tech career, you must remember this.
