As we begin a new year, your MITA blogger has made a new resolution: at least one new post a month! Last year was a difficult one for me on a personal level, and I appreciate your patience.
To start out the year, I thought I’d share a couple of techie tidbits that might come in handy, plus a fun article about newly-minted English words.
a) Use your phone/iPad as a portable scanner! There are several apps available for Apple and Android devices, most costing between $2 and $5. Scanner Pro by Readdle, however, is currently available for free; snap the picture and it turns your document into a PDF.
b) Need to extract the text from a PDF, but don’t want to pay for the heavy-duty programs? Try the free utility, A-PDF Text Extractor (http://www.a-pdf.com/text/index.htm).
c) And finally, for your reading pleasure: http://www.learn-english-today.com/new-words/new-words-in-english.html
May this coming year be good to you!
