This is actually really cool for me. Let me tell you why. As much as I travel for work, and spend so much time on airplanes, in cabs, on public transport, on shuttles between Corvallis and the Portland Airport, and so on, you'd think I'd get a lot of reading done. But I don't. I'm very susceptible to motion sickness when I try and read. Basically, the motion of what I'm traveling in can cause my to get very, very dizzy if I'm trying to focus my eyes on what I'm reading at the same time. Now sometimes, it's not an issue. If a flight is smooth and lacks much turbulence, I might be fine. If it's turbulent, I really can't read anything, and cars/buses/trains are just right out. So, while I use Pocket to save things that I come across that I want to read, or want to think about blogging about, etc. often times I can't catch up on it while traveling the way others might. If I can close my eyes and have Pocket read them to me though, that opens up some real possibilities. I'm looking forward to that on my next trip!
This is cool if you have no other choice. Personally, I hook up Outlook to sync with gmail and export everything to a PST as my backup, which is a whole lot easier to deal with than having a single text file for every email, but if you don't have anything else to create an email archive with, I guess this is one way to make sure you save a copy of your messages in case Gmail ever goes away, or deactivates your account. Which we know does happen!
Malwarebytes has been one of my go-to resources for years when helping people clean up infected machines. Interesting to see them dip into a tool for Macs, which obviously can, and do, get malware as well!
Stop what you are doing and grab this patch. This security flaw is already out in the wild, attached to some of the nastiest malware out there. Get the update if you have Flash installed. (And you probably do!)
This is pretty cool, over 200 YouTube videos created by a Princeton professor about networking. You could do worse than keep these bookmarked to learn about computer networks!
Don't get too excited, it's only a 30 second delay for cases where you immediately realize you hit send before you were ready. It will not help you recover that email you sent while you were drinking last night. ;-)
