I love Mondays! I get to go back to work at my quiet office with a supercomputer and a fast internet connection! Can’t wait…

In the meantime, Lifehacker is rating the five best Podcast managers…

“Podcasts offer a fantastic way to catch up news, listen to radio shows, and get great media delivered right to your computer (they’re like newsreaders for media). Check out these five popular podcast managers and let the entertainment come to you.

Last week we asked you to share your favorite tool for managing your podcast subscriptions. (The term for downloading a podcast is actually podcatching, and a podcast manager is a podcatcher—the more you know!) We rounded up the top five nominations, and now we’re back for you to review them and cast your vote for your favorite podcast manager.” Source: Five Best Podcast Managers – Podcasting – Lifehacker

Super smart chick Gina Trapani is writing about developing better email habits…

“Start using your email inbox like your postal box: empty it, every single time you check it. It’s not that hard to do. If you get into the habit, you’ll feel on top of your game like never before.” Source: Work Smart: Conquering Your Email Inbox | Fast Company

The Institute for Business Technology says today is clean out your computer day…

“It can be hard to remember to routinely clean out your computer — whether that means running virus scans or organizing your files. That’s why having a day devoted to making sure that your computer is working well and that you can find anything you need on it is a good idea. The Institute for Business Technology originally sponsored a National Clean Out Your Computer Day several years ago, assigning it to the second Monday in February. It’s a holiday well worth adding to your calendar.” Source: Feb. 8 is Clean Out Your Computer Day – WebWorkerDaily

Mashable says that I’m not alone…

“12% of those watching the Super Bowl last year also kept one eye on the web, according to analytics firm Nielsen. The average time spent online was 24 minutes.

What’s most remarkable about the stats is that most people aren’t visiting sports sites during the Super Bowl: only 18% of those online visited sports sites. Rather, users are either searching, checking email or spending time on social networks.” Source: 12% of Super Bowl Viewers Use Web During the Game did an interesting analysis of Facebook and the Super Bowl…

“Given that Superbowl Sunday is upon us, I thought that I’d take the opportunity to examine the effects of Superbowl on the Facebook Pages of the participating teams and some of the players. While this isn’t a comprehensive analysis, we thought that it would be interesting to take a look at some of the related Facebook Pages as the site has become a good measure of societal trends.” Source: Examining The Pre-Superbowl Facebook Effect
