Yesterday at MyBroadband Conference 2010, Tim from Let's Talk Geek was flashing his new business cards around with his QR code on the back. Strange how many people did not know about QR codes.
Now pop over to http://qrcode.kaywa.com/ and generate yourself a QR code. You can print it, store it on your mobile or even drop it on your webpage.
The next time somebody asks for your contact detail, pop open your QR code and tell them to scan it. When they look at you all funny, tell them to quickly scan there marketplace on their mobile and install one of the many apps available.

Everyone has probably heard of DropBox, like me, but also haven't tried it.
Tekzilla suggested DropBox as very effective way to syncronise files (like "My Document") between Windows, Mac and Linux as answer to a viewer question. This prompted me to have a quick look, and it is amazing. Yes, synchronise files between Windows, Mac and Linux effortly and simple, but also much more!
I have a Windows 7 Desktop, Windows 7 Notebook and Windows 7 Netbook. For the first time ever, "Documents" are synchonised and up to date between all three the machines. Add access to these files using any web browser on any machine AND DropBox on Android, and you have the best of all.
Also IT support nightmare: 1x Mac on Network A with 1x W7 on same network. Now ad 1x XP on network B and have people try and share files between each other. I did say users? Now all of them have a shared folder in DropBox which shows as a folder on there machines. Drop file you want in, and everybody has it.
Try DropBox from this link http://www.dropbox.com/referrals/NTEyMjY0NTgwOQ
It is free and they give you 2Gb for free.
And again, 1Password syncs to my Android, so I always have the passwords I need.
