Many things have changed since the release of the second edition of Lifehacker. Windows released a new (and this time, very popular) operating system update; Apple has also released a new OS packed with new shortcuts and features; the web has evolved and is now a more important part of our workflow than ever; and perhaps most importantly, smartphones and smartphone operating systems like iOS and Android have secured a place of importance next to the personal computer (in many cases, supplanting the PC). Those are perhaps the most visible changes on the tip of the iceberg, but the face of technology is always changing, and despite the fact that many of the hacks featured in the previous edition remain useful, most need to be updated to reflect the latest and greatest in tech and personal productivity. In this edition there are more hacks and many new ones, all with relevance to the tech world that exists now and getting things done in that world. "Evergreen" hacks have been updated but their longevity and relevance is still perfect for this edition. New smart phone hacks not included in the previous edition include: Speed Up Your Typing on iOS Speed Up Your Typing on Android Quickly Share Links and Text Between Your Desktop and Phone Remote Control Anything with Your Cellphone Automate Your Android with Tasker Set Up One Number to Rule Them All with Google Voice Save Money on Everything Before You Buy (using scanners and the like) Use Your Cellphone as Your Second Brain (e.g., Google Goggles) Learn Anything About Where You''re at with Augmented Reality Get Reminded of To-Dos When They''re Nearby Dictate Anything to Your Phone Use Your Cellphone as a Scanner Make Your Dumbphone Smarter Tether Your Cell Phone''s Data Connection to Your Computer
