skylineGood Morning!  Ready to roar into 2012?  Well, if you’re looking to start or increase a small business for the New Year, here are some great tools.  Better, some are FREE!

Yep, that’s right.  You can still get help for your design or development business for free.

First up, GetJar.  A great collection of apps for your Android devices that are always free.  Some are normally paid apps, so before buying, check GetJar and find out if you can save a few bucks.

Next, Web Designer Depot, a great blog site with tons of free brushes, templates, fonts and other tools necessary to any Graphic Designer.  They are launching a new feature called Zero Bundle soon, so get to their site and sign up quick!

Site Grinder is not a completely free service, but they do have a 30 day free trial that is most worth checking out.  This is a plug in for Photoshop that automates creating your web pages.  Increase productivity and make money for 2012!

Then there is Template Monster.  While many of their templates are paid, they feature free ones all the time.  They also offer blogs and tutorials for free to get your skills polished up.  And if you’re a seasoned developer, you can sign up and sell some of your own templates and make some merry New Year cash.

Finally, there is good old DKemp Designs where tips and freebies are listed every day.  If you appreciate the help, donate $1-100 to keep the site going.

Have a Very Productive New Year!

In case you missed it, Yahoo recently fired it’s CEO by telephone.  Yes, that’s right, the board of a multi-billion dollar corporation picked up a telephone and fired their top executive.  Can you say “faux pax” anyone?  But, wait, don’t be sad for her, Carol Bartz will walk away with a cool $10 million to ease her broken heart.

By Yahoo’s own statement, Ms. Bartz was released for “termination without cause”.   And Yahoo stated in their press release that the board was appreciative of Ms. Bartz’s service and has appointed the CFO as interim CEO.  Techsnoop doesn’t know about you but I wouldn’t release anyone a year early if it would cost me $10 million if they were a good worker.  Even if we hated each other, we would have to get along for that much money.  We’re talking about salaries for 10 developers for 20 years.

Next in said press release was the statement “The Co-founders of Yahoo!, David Filo and Jerry Yang, will each continue as Chief Yahoo and will provide counsel to Tim and the Executive Leadership Council.”  Yes, that’s right, they will each continue as “Chief Yahoo“.  Did someone really let this critical communication be released with a typo of this maginitude?

I smell job opening and I want to apply.
