Clickto1 Click.to: Your Copy and Paste Shortcut App For The DesktopI am sure most of the folks reading this blog post, have problems when it comes to “copy and paste”. Especially when it’s copying a quote from your favorite blogger or entrepreneur to Twitter or Facebook. Click.to is one of those applications that simplifies the same. While I can go about writing lines and lines describing what it does, Click.to app is simply your “shortcut” to copy and paste.

Now some of you might just think of this to be a pretty pointless app to share, but to prove you remotely wrong, one must try. The sheer simplicity it offers, saves time (at least in my case), as it lets you select specific applications that you want Click.to to paste your selection. This is done via a neat popup bar that appears anytime you select something to copy. From the bar you opt where the copied item needs to be pasted and it’s done, no switching windows or tabs or even to your Excel sheet or Word document. Plus, it sits in your system tray monitoring your clicks, what applications have you used to paste the items, giving users an overview of how many clicks, copy and paste actions they perform. Though I really wish they had some way to track the time spent in performing the same actions.

We think it is quite logical for them to experiment with something that’s already in the box before attempting a new approach, especially in a market that is still adopting (fast) to the startup culture. Following is an interview with the Co-Founder, Khurram Salahuddin Khan:

Q.1  Who are you and what’s your background?

New York, NY (June 27, 2012) – CapsulePen, a new kind of pill case and the brainchild of Joseph Cote (serial entrepreneur and former founder of Dance.com), hit Kickstarter (video here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1967168209/capsulepen?ref=live ) on May 9. With only 4 days left in the campaign which ends on July 2nd, over $15,000 has already been raised to bring this product to market. The pill container industry is getting turned up-side down by this new form factor. CapsulePen is a pill box shaped like a pen; and helps people to take pills as needed, which is a significant challenge in the health industry in general, and for the elderly or chronically ill in particular.

The CapsulePen is the first pill container that arranges pills lengthwise in a tubular container shaped like a pen. The pen fits virtually all pill sizes, and they are loaded in reverse of the the order they are to be taken. A clip ensures easy fastening inside pockets, and magnetized end caps make it easy to place the CapsulePen within eyesight in a kitchen, bathroom or office. Its hexagonal body plus the magnetized ends allows for seven CapsulePens to fit perfectly together in a weekly bundle, for easy, secure portability. CapsulePen users can pre-load a full week’s worth of medication, ready to be taken on time, every time.

business swagger  West vs East Coast Business Swagger

If the contrasting cultures of the sports teams is any indication, the West Coast and East Coast have business cultures that seem much more suited to the battlefield than to any sort of cooperation.

The laid back West Coast business culture of jeans and stylish shirts seems unequipped for any type of real organization, but their dress and mannerisms may be a cover for handling the extremely delicate and high profile dealings of the entertainment business.

ipad 3 pictures The iPad 3 Will Have Haptic Feedback And Probably SenSeg Is Behind It

While the rumor mill gets active as the Apple event and the inevitable announcement of the iPad 3 / iPad HD, there is one rumor which is believable. We have seen how Apple has advertised next generation of the iPad, (We have something you really have to see. And Touch) and with the word “touch” we think it has everything to do with the exclusion of the Physical Home Button that has managed to exist on the otherwise one button Apple devices (the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad). News is also rolling out that Senseg, a Helsinki based firm is probably giving the new iPad it’s button free existence.

The new iPad might just have Steve Jobs’ idea come true – and with Haptic feedback, already present across many mobile devices, we might just see it happen with the iPad 3. The reports have been detailed out across all notable blogs, including The Next Web, where Mathew Panzarino stated:
