St. Peter’s Square in 2005 and 2013. What a difference 8 years makes.
I spy a RAZR. This is amazing.

Okay, I see you Microsoft.
Full disclousre: this is a post about an app (for those with an iPhone/iPad) on THE BEST $0.99 I have spent in awhile on the app store.
If clean and minimal mobile apps catch your eye, Agenda for iOS makes leaps and bounds above iCal (the included calendaring app with the iPhone and iPad).
Let’s face it, if you use Apple products then you know that iCal
kind of sucks. Agenda for iPhone is by far more superior (IMHO). It has the look of a minimalist paper calendar, but it syncs seamlessly with your calendar(s).
Simple black text and numbers on a white background, perfect for a desk calendar or a quick look at what appointments and activities you have coming up later in the day. AND Agenda allows you to quickly jump between day, week, and month views, see scheduled appointemts, and more— all without ever bringing up the iPhone’s on-scren keyboard.
After checking out a recommendation on Agenda, I tried it too and personally feel in love with the continuous scroll functionality and that you can swipe between different views - single day view to weekly to monthly to yearly.
All in all: with it’s sexy plain interface, (which may dissuade some users from downloading the app), it’s great for people who want to get the information they want from their calendar quickly and move on.
1) Nothing is withheld from us which we have conceived to do.
2) Do things that have never been done.
-The guy who invented the computer
The first meaning: if you’ve conceived something in your mind, decide to do it, and are willing to put in the work – nothing can stop you.
The second meaning: is fairly self-explanatory but carries the extra weight of it coming from the guy who invented the very thing that’s letting me type these words out on the internet.

On average, how many contacts do you have in your phone? How about on Facebook? On Twitter? We all know managing contacts across multiple accounts and networks has always been annoying, but Brewster’s (a new app that will change the way you view your contacts) goal is to make the process prettier and easier.
Brewster is the digital manifestation of that unwieldy analog system. After users download the application to their phone, they can hook it into their various accounts, including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Then the app begins to examine the relationships between the phone owner and the people across their various networks.
Brewster, the15-person start-up, has been working on the service for the last two years and it is now available as a free application for the iPhone. Eventually the app’s team hopes to expand the service to other devices and platforms.
