Send to Kindle for iOS takes on Pocket, Instapaper, Safari

Instapaper and Pocket are most likely the household name when it comes to read-it-later services. That is probably true for most platforms as well as for those who jump in between platforms. For Apple's faithful, however, plain old Safari and its Reading List feature might actually have the upper hand.

NASA’s little Rover companion was inspired by origami

NASA’s little Rover companion was inspired by origami

There is only so much you can launch into space, much less land on planets like Mars. Space, weight, and budget all conspire against having more rolling laboratories roving the planet.

But to make them compact and lightweight, the engineers and scientists took inspiration from the foldable properties of paper.
