Sometimes simple, subtle tools are the best. Things like letter openers and bottle openers come to mind. Tools so simple a caveman can use them, oh wait, that’s car insurance. Anyway, online users have a myriad options for doing a myriad different things, but one thing just about all of us do online is read something.
Reading an article on the web usually involves two things: 1) Time and 2) Looking at the text on a webpage with a lot of distracting information (like ads!). Well, the elegant programming mind of Marco Arment, who is also a lead developer for Tumblr, has created an ingenious service to both save the articles you don’t have time to read right now and to also format them in a way that makes them easy to read later. His service is called Instapaper and it’s a dandy.
