Holy crap this app is great. It's not just about SMSing from your desktop: it also lets you monitor your phone's battery and incoming calls.

I've never run-commuted. Mostly because I can't quite figure out what I'd do with a wet towel in an open-plan office. :(
Squeezing in time to run during the workday is a constant challenge. But what if running was something we didn't have to squeeze in?

+Nathan Maharaj Very well. Mine is over 3 years old and still looks practically brand new still. I wash mine by dunking it in a tub of warm water (no soap) and sloshing it around about every 2-3 months.

Because some people insist on texting instead of IMing; with this app, you can use SMS messaging from Chrome. Free version is perfectly useable.

Surprised that FB has failed to release its own app for this. But this one fills the void very nicely. I paid for the upgrade to ad-free.

Gotta give this guy credit for being the first author I've read who's got some sense that current subscription models probably aren't financially viable for the providers, precisely because they're so lucrative for authors and publishers.

How did hadrosaurs not get slaughtered by big therapods like T-Rex? It looks like they were distance runners (!) who outran their sprinting predators. 
New research suggests that duck-billed dinosaurs were no sitting ducks. Scientists have long wondered how the plant-eating hadrosaurs managed to be so numerous everywhere from North America to Asia.

While mama's having a girl's night out, we boys had a bath before reading Winnie the Pooh in bed.

Fascinating: this explains why I'm able to alleviate most running discomfort by concentrating on splaying my toes: http://youtu.be/4Q9_0B-p6Bk

Awesome ... wish I'd known the true nature of my knee problems 10 years ago, but better late than never. Great post.

Every night after bath the boys go show mama how nice they look. Sometimes mama's not home from yoga yet so we have to send a picture.
