Do you get annoyed filling in your state code using the drop-down menu of online forms the require your mailing address? Did you know that you can look up flight status information directly in the Google search bar without going to the airline website? Have you tried skipping over the annoying, long-winded voice mail greeting of a friend before leaving a message, but found that the short-key you usually use for AT&T messages does not work for Sprint voice mail?
I came across this brief yet entertaining TED talk given by David Pogue, the Personal Technology columnist for the New York Times, featuring simple but surprisingly useful phone and computer shortcuts. I can sheepishly say that most of these basic tech features were new to me, and I can imagine that a few of them might be new to you too. Enjoy!
