I find it really funny but some of the best tech reads on the internet come from email subscriptions. It’s either Benedict Evan’s excellent weekly newsletter on how “mobile is eating the world” or Ben Thompson’s newsletter that manages to convey the business side of technology without confusing normal people.

I particularly enjoy Owen Williams’ Charged newsletter and of course iPhoneHack’s own newsletter is a staple diet.

If you want to get all productive, you can literally use apps like Dropbox right from the keyboard. We’ve talked about crazy productive keyboard apps in a previous article.
