Question about Pocket for any users: Are there extensions (in my case, for Chrome) for MacOS browsers that let me "save for later" there? It would be nice to be able to also save things for later while browsing on my Mac then read them on my iPhone or iPad later. Edit: Should have just checked first...looks like there's an extension for Chrome to add items to Pocket.
   True, T-Mobile's coverage is not great. However, with AT&T we would have had to wait until our two years were up AND pay an EXTRA $50/mo than we were before to upgrade our two iPhones by getting into a new 2-year contract. T-Mobile's deal (including paying early termination fees for us) lowered our bill from AT&T even with paying for 2 new iPhone 6's on their 24-month payment plan. WiFi calling sealed it for us, since WiFi is so prevalent. I could see those who travel...
So, $75 to upgrade to a version with fewer features? Not trying to be snarky, just asking the question. Of course, I only use Quicken for the basics: keeping a register of income/expenses and tracking different categories. I probably wouldn't even use it if it hadn't come free with my Mac back in 2006 since there are plenty of other inexpensive personal finance software options out there.
I for one have had a poor experience with iOS 7 on my iPhone 4s (apps crashing, Siri does not work about 1/4 of the time, choppy UI, especially when an audio app is running in the background) and so have encouraged friends not to upgrade until at least the next iOS 7 update. Granted, some of the issues could be the apps themselves and not iOS 7, but one issue that is the Camera app crashes often when accessed from the lock screen. None of these things are the end of the...
I was in a Delta terminal last month, and hearing the announcements I thought, "That sounds just like Siri!" Guess that explains it.
I actually like Tweetdeck on my iPhone, and I've put off finding another solution because of that. It gives me a quick, clean glance at my timeline, plus custom easy-to-view lists like mentions and a search to see when someone tweets a link from my blog. Twitter actually turned it into a pretty good app. Any suggestions on a good replacement app?
On the advice of a friend, I moved to Feedly. It's currently based on the Google Reader API, but they say they will be ready to go by July 1st with a seamless transition to different API. So far, it looks great on my Google Chrome and iPhone. Also works on Firefox, Safari, and Android. http://blog.feedly.com/2013/03/14/google-reader/
I am surprised that Google has not been able to turn Reader into a moneymaker, because it really is a great service. Most folks will be frustrated by the death of Reader because there aren't any comparable alternatives. Sure, there are other feed compilers, but Reader is the best out there, especially for the price (free).   Hopefully this clears the way for others to step up and create something just as good...and preferably free. FWIW, I wouldn't mind ads, if it...
Aren't Swatches kids' watches? I got one when I was five, I think. Are we going to hear from the makers of Leapster that the next iPad won't be a big deal?
One thing I wish were possible is going from a Google map on Chrome right to the Google Maps app. Am I missing a way to do that?
