How-To: Calling Siri on Mac Using Custom Keyboard Shortcut or Dictation

What Siri can do

I tried using Siri on Mac after my upgrade to macOS Sierra, and it works as expected, even I’m still using some basic commands. It’s just like they way I talk to Siri on my iPhone and iPad. Asking Siri is simple, just hit the Siri button on the menu bar, and send your command.

But, can we call Siri from a keyboard shortcut or even dictation? Yes, we can.

How To: Install Opera Mobile on Nokia N9

Nokia N9 already has a built-in internet browser. It’s not the best, but it works. I like having some browsers for my Nokia N9, and currently I have Firefox Mobile and Opera Mobile installed. Both browsers (Firefox Mobile and Opera Mobile) are not available from Ovi Store. If you’re using Symbian for your Nokia, you can download Opera Mini. Firefox is not yet supported.
I’m not considering the installation process as something difficult. Yes, it’s not like the regular installation procedures. It’s my first-time experience too. So far, everything works without any issue at the moment. For Opera Mobile installation, I just follow the installation tutorial from Nokia N9 Fans Club. It’s an unofficial site, not maintained by Nokia.

Now, let me share a bit about how I installed Opera Mobile. Anyway, my N9 is running MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan with software version PR1.1 (20.2011.40-2_PR_005). And, if you’re not familiar with command line, you can continue reading.

Using CloudBerry Explorer to Manage Amazon S3 Account

In my previous post, I mentioned an Amazon S3 tool called CloudBerry S3 Explorer. I also have S3Fox organizer addon installed. I use them both, and I feel that I’m more comfortable with CloudBerry Explorer.

CloudBerry Explorer makes managing files in Amazon S3 storage EASY. By providing a user interface to Amazon S3 accounts, files, and buckets, CloudBerry lets you manage your files on cloud just as you would on your own local computer. (source)

Now, I want to share how I use CloudBerry S3 Explorer to manage my Amazon S3 Account.
CloudBerry Explorer is availble as a freeware software. We can download it for free. It offers many features we need to manage Amazon S3 account, from a simple to complicated tasks. After I downloaded and installed it, I can start using it. First, I need to add my Amazon S3 account into the application. Go to File > Amazon S3 Accounts.

Blogpemilu.com

BlogPemilu.com
Last year, I bought a domain. It was blogpemilu.com. I wanted to build a site related to General Election in Indonesia. But, I haven’t figured out what to make.
In the last few weeks, I decided to use it as a tumblelog using Tumblr with custom domain service. Why not using self-hosted blogging? The answer is simple and straight forward: I do not want to get busy preparing the tecnical stuff like themes, etc.
There are many Tumblr users from Indonesia, and since a Tumblr-powered tumblelog can have multiple authors, it’s just perfect. I started writing some texts, quotes, photos, etc. Then, I invited some Tumblr users I know — from Twitter — to contribute. So, here it is now: Blog Pemilu. Big thanks to all contributors!
If you want to contribute, you can. You only need a Tumblr account. Just contact me directly or by email — the information is available on the site. Other requirement? Well, you want to share Pemilu-related stuff. :)

Track Current Stock Information in Google Spreadsheet


I am not a person who got affected when there are major stock changes in the market. But, for those who need to track the stock information growth — and also use Google Spreadsheet, this is probably useful. Anyway, this will retrieve data from Google Finance.
There is a tutorial about tracking stocks in Google Spreadsheets

Instead of copying data into your worksheet, when the linked source changes, the cells in your spreadsheet will automatically update, which can save a lot of work if you pull reports regularly. This external data can be pulled from XML, other spreadsheet documents, and even (assuming you can bear to look) current and historical stock quotes from Google Finance.

Using this method, you can retrieve current stock information and also pull historical stock data. There are some spreadsheet samples you can download.
