Having been a freeleancer myself in several realms (branding / design, IT / software architecture and engineering, business development and strategy planning, operations) I’ve learned a lot from my own experience dealing with clients of all types. I recently came upon a great Digg post that might help fellow free lancers out there to avoid certain mistakes that could hurt your livelihood and career. A lot of these tips I’ve learned through my own sweat but the writer of the original post puts it altogether so well.
These mistakes can easily be made by design firms and other outsourcing companies as well so this doesn’t just apply to potential freelancers.

So I’ve been yapping about touch screen technologies a lot this year (Apple iPhone, Microsoft Surface, Jeff Han’s Multi-touch) and you may have enjoyed the essential tools I’ve posted for Apple’s iPhone but I thought that my fellow TabletPC friends out there could enjoy some of the tools and resources that I’ve been enjoying on my TabletPC.
Also if you’re not yet a TabletPC lover and are thinking about getting a laptop PC in the near future, I recommend you review and compare the prices / features of your choice notebooks and also the top TabletPC’s out there. I own the Lenovo Thinkpad X61 TabletPC which I believe to be the best TabletPC out there by far in comparison to the others.
Now here are your tools. Enjoy!

Technion Israel Institute of Technology researchers have developed a theoretical model of a time machine that, in the distant future, could possibly enable future generations to travel into the past. An article on this research was published last week in the scientific journal Physical Review.
By tweaking Einstein’s space time and general relativity models these researchers are becoming more confident with the idea of travelling back in time, something that most scientists believe to be improbable because of the paradoxes and other reasons that could happen if one did so. Curving space time, as is the basis for wormholes to travel instantaneously from one point in space to another, is the basis for this research. So instead of going to another space point in your time, you go from your point in time to another point in time.

Well it’s been about two weeks since I’ve gotten my Apple iPhone. I must say overall I’m in love with the phone. I say this adamantly because honestly I’ve never been able to say this about any other phone I’ve purchased before. I’ve been a Microsoft Mobile and Pocket PC user for years but with the Microsoft phones and PDAs I’ve also experienced OS issues, had to reboot. I guess I’m used to that with Windows in general!

A research team from the Standford University School of Medicine has gained valuable insight into how the brain sorts out the chaotic world around it. The team showed that music engages the areas of the brain involved with paying attention, making predictions and updating the event in memory.
