Monday Brain Dump: Recommendations

I haven’t done one of these in awhile…these are the things I’m using and loving and highly recommend:

Google Chrome – I have to admit I’m pretty much a fan of anything Google puts out so it’s no surprise that I absolutely love their browser. It’s extremely fast, especially loading up, and everything is just so intuitive. I love how google search is built into the address bar and and the startup page is your most visited websites. It’s just a simple browser that has what I need and does what I want.

Podcasts – I’ve been getting back into podcasts again since I started using my iPhone. The ones I subscribe to are Best of YouTube, Indie Soup, a variety of NPR ones, Savage Love, This American Life, Lip Gloss and Laptops, and VH1 Best Week Ever. Any recs?

Sephora eyeliner brush #23 and Stila Smudge Pots – Yes! I’ve finally found an eyeliner that I’m comfortable using

Foodie At Fifteen – A new blog I’m reading. this kid’s amazing. I wish I had a friend like him when I was younger. One who would make these scrumptious looking pancakes the morning after a sleepover.

Scarves from Forever 21 – I don’t care what you think. I’m going to wear my scarves in my 70 degree socal weather. :) I love the selection of scarves at F21 and most of them are under 10 bucks! Somebody help meeee.

iPhone apps – I’m still going crazy over my iPhone. I have almost 9 pages full now…I think I’m about to hit my max :( I’m actually thinking of starting an iPhone app recommendation weekly post…but I’m not sure how many iPhone users I have as readers. Some cool ones I’ve dled recently are Word Party (it’s like taboo!!), WiPix (turn all of your iPhone photos into a slideshow viewable on the web), and Trulia (we used it to search for open houses this weekend…it was awesome!).

i used to use chrome but i found that it was a little memory hungry even though it wasnt supposed to be. i figured i would wait until they clean up all the bugs before reinstalling it again.

for podcasts, maybe the cnet one and webbalert for techie news. i also subscribe to language lessons and music lessons to make it more educational! unfortunately ive been short on time to really keep up.

Yeah someone is going to have to tell me how Chrome is better than Firefox, cause I wasn’t too impressed with it. I’m sure they’ll supe it up eventually, but in the meantime, I don’t see why I should change from Mozilla goodness.
