A La Carte (June 10)

To Create Magic - John Saddington’s heartfelt thankfulness for technology is palpable. I echo his sentiments for creativity—being a maker and a shaker.

Unread for iPad - One of the greatest apps to happen to RSS is now available on the iPhone and it’s larger counterpart. This is the most reader-friendly RSS experience you can buy for less than a hamburger and fries.

Scrivener 2: A Complete Writing Studio - I don’t know what I would do without Scrivener, and it’s on sale for 4 more days. I like it so much I got another license! Grab it now for $20 (55% off). It’s not on sale very often.

Delete Your Facebook - Matthias is a YouTube personality, with some good ideas, and some lame ones. This time, he caught my attention. Some of his points are rather good.

This is How to Get People to Stop Texting While Driving - I thought, like so many other videos, this one would be patronizing. It was just the opposite. It’s a brilliant Volkswagon campaign that hits home. Texters face serious problems behind the wheel.
