If you haven’t played with app Flipboard, you should download the latest version for iOS or Android. It easily allows to select from hundreds of categories and web resources and then easily review them daily or weekly based on your schedule. The web version is also great when you are on your desktop station and want to check out the latest stories.

We’ve been using Apple’s Keynote as our wireframing design tool since Apple shipped Keynote. It has several key features that continues to make my job easy in providing total flexibility in being part of the solution rather than trying to work thru the tool. I’ve found a tweet on a presentation by Travis Issacs @tbisaacs. I have not had the opportunity to meet or see him present but by viewing his presentation I’ve learned several new techniques to enhance the power of Keynote.
We’ve been using primarily Flash 7 and then 9 for delivery of video over the past few years. Flash was simply the simplest way to deliver content to the largest audience. One main factor, was the processor speed of the computer that was playing the content back. if older, slower cpus were the primary audience you wanted to use the older compression format, named Spark, in order to guarantee good quality playback.
If you have a Mac, iPad or iPhone with Keynote installed, here’s a great wireframe toolkit from http://KeyNoteKungFu.com. You can purchase them for $12 and get setup within minutes to start designing your next web or learning project. You can also use them in Powerpoint if you are stuck on a pc 😉
