Tech Report with Sandee Seiberlich: Project Management Tools

Friday, 16 November 2012 | buzz

On Friday November 16, host Jonathan Zarov brings the Tech Report with Sandee Seiberlich, discussing tools to assist with Project Management. Sandee recommends that before purchasing anything, one should first evaluate the project itself, and determine what is needed from the tool, “are you going to be just using it as a planning tool? Keeping a task list? Sharing or collaborating on documents?” She also suggests considering whether the product is to be primarily run on the computer itself, or be web-based. Also, she recommends searching for a companion application for a smart phone or other devices.   Sandee provides a review of Microsoft Project: she says that though it can manage resources and time, it is not meant to be a collaborative tool and that it is not Mac friendly. It is not necessarily intended for small projects either; rather, it is directed towards medium to large projects. Basecamp, Sandee says, is a relatively good tool for managing several projects. Sandee explains that she herself uses a Wiki, which she says is a good collaborative tool. “That way I can bring in my Microsoft project Gantt chart, construction drawings, pictures.” She also mentions Google Drive, “it’s a great tool, but not everyone has the same success level with it.”   The following articles provide a list of recommended project management tools: Free Project Collaboration Tools That Rock (from Tech Republic) 30 Greatest Online Project Management and Collaborative Tools for Easy Communication (from Web Design)   Listen to the entire interview here: more »

Tech Report: iPhone 5

Friday, 12 October 2012 | buzz

In the Friday October 12 Tech Report, host Jonathan Zarov spoke with Sandee Seiberlich about the newly released iPhone 5. Says Sandee, “It is a much faster processor, and it has a nicer display. With its release came the release of iOs 6 – which will affect a lot of people.” All iPhone users from 3GS and up and those with the generation 4 iTouch can upgrade to this new operating system.”   Sandee discusses several improvements and features that come with the new phone.The iPhone 5 is taller, thinner, and has a higher quality resolution than before. It is also lighter and weight, has a 4 inch screen that enables one to fit an extra row of icons on the screen, and now has aluminum on the back instead of glass. The design of the earbuds has also changed so as to better fit the ear. Among some of the controversial decisions includes the replacement of Google maps with Apple maps, and the fact that YouTube no longer appears as a standard application on the screen: it must be added by the user.     Listen to the entire interview here: more »
