It's National Senior Citizen Day, a time to honor the wiser ones around us, thanks to a proclamation by President Ronald Reagan. Find your favorite elder states(wo)man, make them dinner, take them to the beach, or just sit back and ask them to tell tales of yore. BTW: You'd be surprised who qualifies as a senior these days (think Harrison Ford, Goldie Hawn, Diane Sawyer, and Debbie Harry). Here's how we matured this week:
- Look ma, no wires: Those who manage their lives via Yahoo! Calendar and own an iPhone will rejoice - you can now sync the two! Tapping into the CalDAV open standard, we've collaborated with Apple to let you bring all your precious deets into your iPhone Calendar. You can also share your calendar with friends and family and likewise see their events on your phone. Nothing to download, no wires -- it's all over the air. That's mighty George Jetson. More here.
- Tweeting your tunes: The latest version of FoxyTunes is out and it's all atwitter. FoxyTunes, the toolbar that lets you control tunes from within your browser, now lets you easily tweet about the music you're listening to. A project started about two years ago, TwittyTunes is officially a new default feature within FoxyTunes. And remember, you have 140 characters, which is enough to tweet, "Listening to a song I love: The Dandy Warhols - The Legend of the Last of the Outlaw Truckers aka the Ballad of Sherif Shorty." What's more, you can also share your song via Facebook, Skype, Yahoo! Messenger, Last.fm, and Yahoo! Status. It's a musical meetup. More here.
