Use the Right Battery Type for the Job

Batteries are batteries right? Sure, and computers are computers, and tires are tires. Oh, what’s that? You say there’s a big difference between a Mac and PC, and tractor tires and car tires? Well, so too there are big differences between the different types of batteries that are available. Obviously the physical sizes are different like your AAA’s and your D’s, but the differences go deeper. The construction and composition of the charge generating materials can be significantly different as well.

Yes, You CAN Watch TV Online Legally & For Free

Whether you’re thinking of cutting the cord or just want to watch TV on your own schedule instead of the television network’s, there are more legal ways to watch television online than ever. Even better, many of these legal options are free. Most of these websites will expose you to commercials – someone has to pay for the free TV – but you’ll end up watching commercials if you pay to watch TV the traditional way, anyway.

Hundreds: A Game Like You’ve Never Played Before [iOS]

I’m not a gamer. The last gaming console I owned was the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (or SNES), which gave me hours of pleasure with Yoshi’s Island, and that’s after years of work on mastering Super Mario 3 on the classic NES. These consoles marked the end of my gaming days, at least the serious ones. But my interest in gaming got piqued again when I got my iPad 3 years ago.

How To Use ReadQuick To Speed Read Through Your Read Later Articles [iOS]

If you’re like me, you probably pile up a long list of articles in your Instapaper or Pocket accounts that you intend to read later. But keeping up with the books I want to read, and job-related reading requirements, I have nearly given up on reading anything later. But I also know that I tend to be a slow reader, because of my habit of subvocalizing and highlighting text as I read. I have always been aware of speed reading techniques, but I have never got around to practicing them.
