The concept of Jing is the always-ready program that instantly captures and shares images and video…from your computer to anywhere.
Why I think this tool should get more love? Ever needed to explain something over the phone to someone and they are just not getting it? So what do you do, you take a bunch of “print screens” and past it into a Word doc and send that over. They get it and they still don’t get “it.” Well, this is where jing comes in, you simply open the program – if you don’t already have it open be default like me – select a section of the screen to record, record what you are trying to explain, save and the send that SWF over and you just saved yourself hours of hassle.

Why I think this tool should get more love? Inline with Jing, using Yugma helps you take client “support” to the next level. Sometimes a three minute video is not enough, you actually need to see what the client is seeing and the next best thing to actually sitting of the clients or co-workers shoulder is to share their screen. Yugma’s free account, although not as feature rich as the Pro account, it gets the job done in a pinch.
Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?
Why I think this tool should get more love? Really, Twitter gets a ton of love from the average person to Steven Colbert to CNN but I don’t think it gets enough love as tool for Developers/Designers. Imagine you work is a firm, design/development/both, and you have a problem with some code or how to make a design better, you simply call over one of your co-workers and get their advice. But if you don’t work in an office where you can get help you alternatives are forums, mailing groups or IRC which are all ok, but not – in my experience – give off the truly “personal” help that Twitter can help provide. If you follow and build a rapport with other people a request for help can be fulfilled pretty quickly.
