GetPocket Bookmarking Tool

Getting back to posting my web services finds. Here’s something that I really really like. GetPocket bookmarking service. It’s the new version of the popular Read it Later app.

Get Pocket Bookmarking Service

I love how your bookmarks are presented. It’s all sleek and has a very organized feel to it. Various bookmarks can sometimes make me feel dizzy with confusion but somehow GetPocket presents it in a way that is easy on the eyes. As we surf the web, we tend to accumulate a lot of links, bookmarks and sometimes it can be daunting to read it in one go. Bookmarks are presented in thumbnail format (which so reminds me of Pinterest) and also on list format.

Another thing is that they have a lot of ways so you can easily bookmark links in all sorts of browsers and platforms. I love how I get to choose from several apps that would best suit my needs when browsing with Chrome or Firefox.

I also love the fact that I can easily tag my bookmarks for easier searching. I almost always bookmark a lot of shopping finds and sometimes I find it hard to look for my previous bookmarks but this makes it easy. I can easily tag an item for unique finds, books, fashion etc.

So if happen to be like me who’s a link and bookmark hoarder, but can’t read it in one go, check out GetPocket. It’s free and awesome.

‘If I Die’ Facebook App

I know this sounds kind of morbid, but I just can’t help but marvel at the ingenious apps that are launched here and there. I personally get so dizzy with the sheer number of apps on Facebook, but this one’s an attention grabber for sure.

Not everyone would contemplate or even talk about death. In some cultures, this is a taboo topic, but then again its a reality of life. And of course, since most of us are increasingly on social networking, its hardly surprising that technology, internet and in this case, Facebook be used to convey your ‘last wishes or words’.

This little app called ‘If I Die’ allows you to send one last video from beyond. This is a free app.

Its makers suggest that you could share a life story – or even a secret you have never shared before, which might come as something as a surprise to the 130 or so friends average people have on Facebook.

But you cannot just send your last message, you need to setup three trustees who should confirm that you are indeed now resting in peace before the message could be posted.

Things You Should Know About Caffeine

I’m caffeine obsessed. I really can’t imagine going through a day without my cup of espresso, flat white, even instant coffee or at times liters of tea. It’s a habit, an addiction, and sure, us coffee lovers know that they have negative side effects, but I think its a bit hard to dissuade me from drinking my caffeine cup.
