Reading is no longer a leisure activity—it's an on-the-go activity that requires speed and less attention. That's why speed reading apps are growing in popularity. As smartphones and tablets increasingly take over the traditional book market, reading skills need to be adjusted accordingly, so you can cram in 5 pages in-between texts and emails.
The internet is chock-full of fun and interesting content, but there's only so much time in the day for consuming it. That's when saving webpages for later comes in handy. If you don't want your bookmarks and favorites folders to clutter up fast, consider using the "Reading List" feature built right in Safari on your iPhone.

Steampunk is a tremendously interesting phenomenon because of its reliance on science fiction, and fiction in general.

Audiobooks are great because they require little-to-no effort on your behalf. When driving in traffic, why not listen to George R.R.

News: Brain Hacking and Thought-Controlled Quadcopters: The Good and Bad Future of Mind-Reading Devices
Until recently, brainwave-reading devices have pretty much only existed in science fiction.
