Hmm, @instapaper vs. @Pocket, which is better. I’ve always been a Pocket guy, but Instapaper’s Notes and Highlights are very enticing.

I'm going to have to start posting the bulletin out here at G+ more often. Things are changing at St. Matthew's. It's now part of 4 parishes that have been combined into one called the Catholic Community of Flint. Exciting things are happening.

On Reading Flannery O'Connor's "The Train" - I'm reading Flannery O'Connor's "The Complete Stories" and appreciated Mr. Stam's analysis of "The Train".

I've been watching Gary ever since I got my MacBook Pro back late 2011.  I love his short instructional videos, usually around 5 minutes, and his site has many, many more.  It's a great resource for new Mac users and experienced users as well.

I "might" be in the market for my first smartphone.  I know, I know, I hear it all the time, I'm an IT guy and I don't have a smartphone.  I have just never really needed one.  I don't travel that much and I have never been able to justify the added expense.

Anyway, there's a deal with my carrier, Verizon, where my monthly bill will only go up a minor amount, like $4/month and I can get into a smartphone.  My choices are the iPhone 5c and the Droid MAXX.  These are my only two choices because it fits into a 2 year contract.  I've been with Verizon for about 15 years so I've always just stayed in contract and taken the phone that I can get within the contract.

So, long story short, way too late for that now, which is the better phone to go with?  iPhone 5c or Droid Maxx?  I know there are lot of "it depends" type of factors, I'm just looking for a high level, first impression type of feedback.

Thanks +Fred Kaffenberger ; update:  Verizon was able to lower my bill by $20/month and getting a smartphone nixes this so once again I cannot justify the expense.  Sticking with a basic phone. :)

Is there a way to have a task list or a to-do list in Mac Calendar?  I'm on Yosemite. #apple   #mac

Is there a #Google service that is comparable to #Pocket for saving articles to read later? I know I can use Bookmarks or Keep in some way, but I'm wondering if Google has attempted to compete directly with Pocket by building a similar app/service.

Question for my G+ friends: is there an Android app that turns your phone into a step counter, a good one? #Android #stepcountchallenge

Google fit does it and it is pretty good. It's stock on a lot of newer Android devices.

Is there a tool that allows you to highlight and mark-up a web page?  What I want to do is highlight and make notes while I read an article and be able to reference these notes later.  Does such a tool exist?
