Cool Toys Pic of the day – Flipboard

Flipboard:
http://www.flipboard.com/

Today I was reading about Flipboard as an essential part of your
social media toolkit, and was bummed that it is only for the iPad,
which I don’t have. So someone offered to let me try it out on their
iPad, and I really could see how it is useful. It is almost like it
makes a little personal newspaper out of the top streams you define as
being useful. This really COULD make my life easier, especially if I
was just stuffing what I saw in my brain. What I need to do, though,
if that what I’ve found and stuff it into my social media streams for
other folk, like Twitter, Facebook, Delicious, etc. I saw a way to
post what I liked to email, but I think I need to learn more about
iPad and its apps to figure out how to really make this useful. For
scanning information quickly, thought, and staying up to date, I do
like it better than Google Reader, mostly for the visual and manual
interface.
