Never heard of it. Is it another on line time waster?

TimeWaster™

It was a big deal in iOS land a year ago. Have it on my iPod, never used it. blush

Flipboard the news aggregator? Yep I use it. I have to make a special effort to access news in English here and it is one of my primary sources. I often use it on the train. I probably use one of its competitors, Zite, more often though.

I purged probably a dozen and a half or more last week from the last couple of years that looked so good at first. I still only use about 25% of what I have on a regular basis and half I've only used once. Still need to purge more, with extreme prejudice this time.

"…that looked so good at first"
Bingo.
I've downloaded a lot of free iOS apps because that was the thing to do.
If I haven't used them in a year +, time to purge.

Between Twitter, Facebook, and Feedly (RSS reader), I see no need for anything else. I prefer a top-down text link list for finding headlines that interest me. All of these "curated" news apps like Flipboard, etc. are too cluttered for my taste.

Prefer to actually feel the pages of books, newspapers & magazines as I flip through them. Reading articles and news papers on a teeny tiny screen never appealed to me. crazy

I was in my optometrist office the other day getting an exam for some contacts and he mentioned "monovision". Why did I instantly think of you ?? grin

Thought you might get a kick from it !!

I like it!
Sounds like 1950's sci-fi.

Although some are corny and have poor special effects, something about those old 1950s SciFi movies makes them fun to watch. And to think when I was in grade school they scared the Bejesus outta me ! blush
