Today’s Thoughts From Rick – “Using Google Tasks”:
All of us have busy lives and keeping it all organized is a task. One of the ways that I manage the components in my life is with Google Tasks. Folks that have used Google Tasks in the past may remember it as a minuscule application that was not really up to speed in comparison to other similar apps.
