"In that 11th hour, maximum productivity is key, so stay on track with digital downloads that keep distractions at bay. We've picked essential Google Chrome extensions and, for the most Internet addicted, super powerful software for Mac and PC. If you have about a million tabs open right now or are easily sidetracked by social media, turn to these four apps for distraction-free working on your desktop."
Ken's Key Takeaway:
I knew about the OCR in photos. I did not know about the OCR .pdf function. Awesome!
Are you a digital packrat? Are you in need of a searchable repository for everything you want to recall later? Does the idea of automatic OCR (Optical Character Recognition) for all your scanned PDFs get you excited in a way only seriously organised people could ever understand? If so, Evernote is the tool you need right now – and we’ve got the perfect manual to get you started using it like a professional.
Downloads are free from MakeUseOf - just tweet about the product you want. -JL

A couple of weeks ago I published a round-up of popular ed tech tools that were updated this summer. I had a couple of readers ask if they could print the post to pass out in their schools. Yes, you can. To make it easier to print I put the post into PDF format. In creating the PDF I changed some of the "click here" items to written URLs for finding video demonstrations of updated features. The PDF is embedded below, you can also click here for the PDF.

"Ok, so I had this really interesting email from Janie:
I saw your discussion on the TCEA forum and would like to look at the epub version of your App Smasher's Guide.
Jim Lerman's insight:
Web smashing is using a combination of apps to obtain a desired outcome that could not be achieved by using a single app.
Google+ had a hot start, but has since cooled down. For a lot of people, that means ignoring Google+. I want to warn you that is a bad idea.
Although the lights are on and it seems like nobody is home, trust me: there are people there. And they are the very people who can have a huge impact on your blog and business.
Why Google+ isn’t going anywhere
Google+ is designed to draw you away from both Twitter and Facebook. And in time, it could do this.
Yes, Facebook has over 800 million users. People like to state that number and then say “Facebook isn’t going anywhere.” Fair enough. But people do migrate. It happened to AOL. And it could happen to Facebook. In fact, former Facebook president Sean Parker says influencers are already moving from FB to Twitter and Google+.
