On my Mac/Windows PC…Send to Kindle apps, browser extensions and blog plugins

Send to Kindle

 "Reading your documents and web content on Kindle is now easier than ever. Use Send to Kindle applications to read on your Kindle devices and free reading apps on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android."

The truth is, despite my computer geek leanings, sometimes I like to kick back with a nice book (or ebook) and read unencumbered by my laptop. I have been using a similar browser plugin in for Google Chrome that allows me to send longer content to my Kindle for a while and I have really enjoyed it. It is a more comfortable experience for reading and, as a result, I seem to retain a bit more of what I have read, instead of just skimming the content.

Clicking the Send to Kindle button (or using the browser add-ons) will format the blog post for easier reading on the Kindle and then send it to any of your registered devices. In my case, I can send it to my iPhone, my Kindle Touch, my Kindle Fire or the Kindle app on my Android phone.

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit ifttt.com    From the iTunes App Store...

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.
