When you cook food at home, you know you have two hours — arguably four if you really want to push it — to get your food out of the room-temperature air and into your belly.

Bash programmer Jason Hutchinson built a command line download manager called Download Queue (or DQ) based on Lifehacker's own todo.sh script.

You already know that you can get quick local search results from your phone with Google SMS for the price of a text message, but the service is a helluva lot more usable now that you can set your default location. Just send a text to Google SMS (466453) with set location . Now when you want to perform weather, movies, or restaurant look-ups via Google SMS, you can just text, for example, weather rather than weather 90210. Much more convenient!
