IT'S been a while since I’ve been here. My apologies for that everyone. After Typhoon Yolanda struck the Visayas region, it’s been busy at the front lines with my day job not to mention the pressures of finishing requirements for my post-graduate studies.

Anyway, I’ll keep it simple this week while we all get set for the Christmas season.

This week, I’ll share with you links to Flipboard ( magazines that I found to be most probably useful for you.


I’m pretty sure a lot of you out there are using smartphones or tablets. I recommend that you install Evernote on all your devices - laptop, desktop, smartphones, tablets. I have this nifty little app on all the devices I carry and it has been a boon for me. I write this column on Evernote and keep things organized from there.

(See Evernote on Flipboard.)


This one’s sort of a newcomer in the social media world. It’s not the usual place where we can post our rants and raves in either 140 characters or more. Rather, it’s a melting pot of “pinned” items from all over the internet categorized into multiple interests - men’s fashion, automobiles, photography, design, and a whole lot more.

(See Pinterest on Flipboard.)


And of course, how can we forget where all these are coming from? Flipboard. Even before I got my first tablet, I’ve been raving about this aggregator service. It’s a very nice way of presenting web content based on your specific interests.
