A few days ago it was time to get a new cell phone and I decided to go with the HTC EVO
. There are several things that I like about the new phone and first on the list is tall 4.3 inch screen. At first when you look at it, you think that that may be a little too big. I find that the new screen makes doing things on the phone so much easier like being able to load up all those applications because of the greatly increased internal storage. Those applications all run much faster to with the new 1 GHz processor. See my old phone only had a 600 MHz processor and it could not handle many of the applications very well. Even though my old phone had much more processor power than let's say my first 286 computer which its processor was rated at 16 MHz. How times have changed.
So last night I started looking for some additional applications of interest to load on the phone and stumbled upon "Read It Later
". Read It Later has been described as a DVR (digital video recorder) for the web. DVR's are liked by most people because it allows them to save content that they can watch at a later time and when they do they can bypass all the commercials. So that's what Read It Later does. It allows you to tag news stories webpages and other interesting things on the Internet and then read it later at your convenience without the commercials (ads) on multiple different devices. They have applications for all the different browsers and many of the phones.
