Weekly Tech Roundup

This week’s Tech Roundup includes WordPress security update, W3 Total Cache write-up, free fonts, and Send to Kindle app.

How to Turn Off Google’s Annoying New Personal Search Results – This is kind of a follow-up to the Google+ integration in Google Search articles I just posted about in this week’s Small Business Roundup. This article tells you how to hide these new search results by default. It doesn’t really turn them off and you can easily turn them back on, but if you find them annoying or unhelpful, this will help you out.

WordPress 3.3.1 Security and Maintenance Release – WordPress released an important security update. This update shouldn’t cause any trouble for your theme or plugins and you should apply it now if you haven’t already.

Speed Up WordPress with W3 Total Cache – I’ve used this plugin on a couple of sites now and it really seems to work. This is a good write-up covering all the features.

New High-Quality Free Fonts – You know me, I love fonts! Especially when they’re free. There are some really slick ones here. Great to add to your collection.

Amazon’s Send to Kindle App Makes Sending Documents to Your Kindle as Easy as Right-Clicking – As a relatively new Kindle owner, I’m super excited to try this out. If you’re on Windows and have a Kindle, definitely check this out.

Have a great weekend!
