Gist culls through my emails and social media contacts, then provides me with insights into the people I’m connected with such as blog posts, news articles, recent tweets. I like the recent Tweets feature since it filters down to people I’m actually in touch with versus my entire Twitter stream. I can filter my Gist Dashboard view on the iPhone down to just news or just blogs-or just Facebook as well. Gist sends me emails to draw my attention to revelant information about people I know or people I want to get to know better.”

“I use Instapaper’s bookmarklet on my web browser to to save the title and URLS of blog posts and articles I don’t have time to read, and then use the iPhone app to read later when I’m standing in line at the grocery store or just have some time to catch up. I find myself reading voraciously while standing in line at airport security.”

“I manage my travel information on TripIt by emailing my flight itineraries to the site and it instantly appears in my profile. I can share my travel plans with family and friends. Then, when I’m at the airport checking in, I can get to my flight number quickly and easily without having to dig through papers or remember where I wrote it down.”

Remember the Milk

“Speaking of remembering, I have such a bad memory these days, so I rely on all kinds of  To-Do lists and backup lists. Remember the Milk has both the web interface and iPhone app, plus text message reminders to nudge me about important things. Now, if only I can remember to enter my to-dos into it on a regular basis.
