Cool News App – Inside

 

cool gifts - nutscool gifts - nutscool news app - insideFirst off, a belated HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Today’s #CoolSite is a new entry into the ‘news app’ category: @INSIDE.

I’m a big fan of reading news from either RSS feeds (@feedly) or apps (like @Circa) that curate the news for me (based on MY interests). So, when @jason started up INSIDE, I knew his team would curate the best journalism for me in real time. Download it today (and stay away from trash and fear journalism!)

Coolest App – Uber

 

cool gifts - nutscool gifts - nutscool app - uberToday’s #CoolSite is actually a #CoolApp…and not such a new one. @Uber has been around for over 2 years but I’m making serious use of it this week while vacationing in San Diego. Here’s how it works: whenever we need a ride, I simply press a button on the #Uber app and within 10 minutes a driver appears (in a usually very desirable car) to take us wherever we want to go. I seriously love Uber and highly recommend that you try it before seeking your next cab ride (use my link (https://www.uber.com/invite/ubercorso) and you’ll get $20 off your first ride).

Cool Gifts – Nuts

 

cool gifts - nutscool gifts - nutsnutsI usually don’t feature shopping/gift sites but this one comes highly recommended from an old cyber friend, EvanWeber. So, this Cool Site of the Day (for 12/19) is #nuts, a perfect ‘go to’ site when you need a gift that will please just about anyone.

It all started in 1929 when a guy named Sol walked away from his bank job and got a loan to start his own business, the Newark Nut Company. Third generation family run business. GREAT!

New Technology – Wind Power

 

cool technology - wind power - altaerosThis Cool Site of the Day (for 12/10) is AltaAeros Energies (#altaeroswind), a kickass awesome way to harness big wind power in a mobile, low power way.

The Altaeros Buoyant Airborne Turbine (BAT; pictured above) leverages aerospace technology to lift a wind turbine into the winds beyond the reach of traditional towers (amazing).

The completely automated, rapidly deployable system can safely and effectively bring wind power to remote sites that use expensive fossil fuel electricity today. Love it!
