Safari Reader view and instant accessibility
Like many people, I get most of my news nowadays via Twitter. Whenever I find a story that interests me, I usually read it right away using the in-app browser.
My Twitter client of choice is Tweetbot. I do this at the expense of a read-it-later service like Instapaper, because I find more often than not that I want the information right now and I'll take the time to get it. Unfortunately, my desire for instant gratification has relegated my use of Instapaper virtually non-existent in practice, despite the fact that I continue to hold the service (and others like it) in theoretical high esteem.
Although I will read a story within Tweetbot's in-app browser, the reading experience isn't ideal, especially on iPhone. In those cases, I will use the Action button to send a page to Safari to read there. Unfortunately, there are times when the trusty pinch-to-zoom gesture won't work with a website, so I switch to Reader View. I've found Reader View to be great: it's not perfect, but it's a handy tool and, most importantly to me, visually accessible.

Garmin vivofit 2 fitness tracker review
The Garmin vivofit 2 lets you track steps, calories, distance, and more right on your wrist without having to charge it for an entire year.
The vivofit 2 is a refinement of last year's original vivofit and brings with it an improved screen with a backlit display, activity timing, and auto sync. The move bar has also added audible notifications so you don't have to look at your wrist to know you need to get moving. While the vivofit series may not have all the bells and whistles of other fitness trackers, it's a tradeoff some folks may want to consider in exchange for what is pretty much endless battery life.
