    2Do: A Stunning ToDo List with Push and Sync Review (by minusthesink)

    Best App for Getting Things Done philosophy

    Strengths:

    Very Intuitive

    Pretty fast way to assign tasks

    The best way to manage complex tasks

    Syncs 

    Easy to share tasks

    Useful quick actions

    Easy to reassign tasks, defer tasks, and change tasks into projects or checklists.

    Integrates with ToodleDo and iCloud.

    Weaknesses:

    Occasionally syncing creates an opportunity for the app to lose data

    Ideally reminders would feed 2Do or set as the default destination for reminders

Hopefully this the internet line will start to look more like the computing and storage line.

    The truth about the Fast and Furious scandal - Fortune Features

    Imperfect as the government may be, they did not intentionally give guns to Mexican drug cartels. Anyone who says so is a liar trying to distract you.

    2Do iPhone App Review (by iEnthusiast)

    Best Task Manager:

    The ability to set recurrences, create projects, share tasks, and many other features. If Apple were smart they would buy this app and role it into reminders because its almost perfect. Right now the only draw back is that it isn’t linked to Siri, but hopefully that will change in iOS 6. In comparison to other apps like Omnifocus, Reminders and Remember the Milk, it is a perfect balance of plenty of options without bogging you down in minutia. I also like that you can sync and back up to multiple services.

    So far there are 2 weaknesses

    1. Not directly integrated with Siri

    2. I would like to see a feature that helps me figure out how long it would take for me to do all the items on my todo lists, especially the today tab.

    There is also Any.Do which looks promising but so far this is the best app.

    CO-RIDE open innovation (by TATMobileUI)

    A recent Freakonomics podcast got me thinking whatever happened to Co-ride. 

    http://www.youtube.com/user/TATMobileUI#p/u/5/yiirDx4isBQ

    The best point is that 80% of space in America’s cars goes unused. It really wouldn’t be that hard to bring back hitchhiking in a big way with a good social network and smartphones. All you have to do is create an ebay style market where users have a feedback mechanism and vetting process with photos so you know who to pick up, a Co-ride like app to facilitate the market for the users, to create a payment system so that people with cars have a little incentive to pick up riders when they can, and to maximize the usefulness make the system smart enough to find all trips that would get you closer to your destination and utilize them to minimize your travel time. If you look at the video, but envision using more than one ride to get where you are going, you’ll see how simple of an experience it could be.

    When I was looking at other posts on the original page one of the women brought up that women are often harrassed, but that can be discouraged by a feedback mechanism, especially one that includes a person’s face and a permanent record of the transaction. Even now, hitchhiking is a basically a black market but the technology exists to make safer and more mutually beneficial than ever.

    I hate it when a car, that would otherwise be a great car loses all their cool points. These are a couple pieces of good design in simple cars that are too often mishandled with other cars.
