On my iPhone/Android…Flipboard

Flipboard has become my favorite app for "flipping" through all the online sources I monitor on a daily basis. This is about as close as I get to reading a magazine these days. I love its lovely presentation of articles and links from traditional news sites, blogs, Twitter, Facebook and all of social media sites.

Flipboard's greatest power is the ability to configure it include your most important interests. You customize the news sources to you and your interests so that it has the most value possible -- to you.

I have installed Flipboard on my iPhone, my Droid test phone, and my Kindle Fire, although reading on the Kindle is, by far, the best experience. I find that whenever I am waiting in line for something or simply have a few minutes of free time, Flipboard is where I turn.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
