Rival IQ – the best way to analyze and monitor your competitive landscape. (I am a founder)
Evernote – note taking on all platforms
Dropbox – simple file sharing between all my machines and mobile devices
Tripit – awesome for planning and keeping track of travel on web and mobile
Text expander - very fast text substituions on my Mac
Sanebox – automagically move less important email from my inbox to another folder for later reading
Lastpass – share sites/passwords with others without actually giving them your password
iPhone 4 – love the camera and instragram
Macbook Pro 17″ (max ram) – best machine, but considering an Air
Quantified self – I am still exploring the tools and techniques but here is a start;
Zeo sleep monitor - still getting use to this as I got it in April, but trying to get a full night when the headband stays on and my iPhone stays charged… optimistic that this will pay dividends. Be sure to check your data on the website vs. only the phone as they have more data and suggestions there.
Restwise – helps me track my recovery states and when I should rest or train harder.
Garmin 305 GPS watch – I use this on my biking and running. Works pretty well and I like the heart-rate monitor. I wish I could get the data out and into another app like Gdocs to correlate and track with other things.
Map my Run – iPhone tracking. I use it mostly for running as my iPhone battery does not last long enough for rides. Pretty good social integration and I am liking the “live tracking” feature which will be cool for races and/or for Teresa to find me if she needs to pick me up at the end of long rides.
Tools I used to love, but they were acquired and have since been shut down.
Gist - see social updates for all my contacts inside Gmail, Outlook, iPhone, Android and Blackberry (Acquired by Blackberry. Weep, I was a founder here)
ThinkFuse - super simple status reports – build your tribe (acquired by Salesforce). You should still be thinking about status updates.
