Summary: Use the tool you are most comfortable with. For example if you are familiar with Keynote then use Sketch-kit or other keynote templates. I personally prefer OmniGraffle. Best way to judge is: check the sample screens or video of these tools and choose the one you like the most. :)

Most of us have a habit to think about a task in one
moment and forget it the next moment as we’re busy in
doing something else.
Many times what I forget can cause us a severe loss.
But if you have Omni Focus with you then you should
worry less. It’s a task management tool that’s based
on 3 simple rules.
+ Think about a task. (Dump it)
+ Set a deadline for the task. (Manage it)
+ Do the task. (Finish it)
One can have a short cut key to dump the task. So imagine
you are using your favorite web browser or program editor
and you think about something that you need to do later.
Just dump it by typing the short-cut key.
Later, when you are free set deadlines for your tasks. And
it keeps on reminding you about the tasks when the deadlines
come closer. The task can be anything … write a piece of
code to fix a bug or pay your credit card bills.
Just create different projects and contexts … align your
tasks to a project or a context .. do it later. If you miss
a deadline, just change the due date. That way, your tasks
is pushed for few days but you will do it for sure.
And if you have a Iphone or Ipod Touch then you can sync the
tasks nicely. Well, it’s bit expensive to get the licensed
version. But it’s worth it.

Dropbox: Store, Sync and Share

I have been using Dropbox for last couple of months to take the
back of my data.

One thing I will say about this nice tool is that it’s easy, fast and cool.

If you think you don’t have a subversion or fsync utilities to take a back
up of your personal data then Dropbox is the amazing solution to this.

It provides free back up of 2GB data. And you can upgrade to store more.

Steps:

1. Create an account in Dropbox.

2. Install the Dropbox desktop application.

3. The above will ask you to specify a folder name. Hence, create an
empty folder and give the path of that.

4. That’s it. :) Now you can store anything in that folder and it will be
synced with the server.

Note: If tomorrow your system will crash and you will loose all
your important data. Then you can get the data from the server.
