Have a new computer user in the family?

Just caught a new post on Digital Inspiration, one of my favorite practical technology blogs:

The Essential Guide to Internet & Software for First-Time Computer Users

The first few mentions are easy:  PC Decrapifier, Firefox with Delicious add-on, Google Docs, but this article has some gems that I still have yet to use myself:

  • Iterasi - archives your favorite web pages (whether static or dynamic), allowing them to be retrieved from other locations and shared via e-mail.
  • Eyejot - send video e-mail
  • Evernote - turn paper documents into digital docs that are more easily found and managed.

I'd recommend reading the full article, even if you're tech-savvy.  You might find a few gems yourself.
