The Way You Read Books Says A Lot About Your Intelligence, Here’s Why

Not only is having tons of unfinished books around a sign of smarts, it also puts you in great company. I finally let go of my own guilt when I did a deep dive into the reading habits of luminary entrepreneurs and informally surveyed my most successful friends. Most of them only read 20 to 40 percent of the books they purchase. Many of them were reading over 10 books at once.

How to pin sticky notes on virtual desktops on Windows 10

Virtual desktops (on Linux since the "beginning") are great for organising work around different topics eg. gaming, work, a hobby, etc so that you can have all your icons, notes, backgrounds, etc suited to what you are doing. Windows users always had to make do with only one desktop but now their functionality and options are growing too. So on Linux, if I'm at work I can have all my private apps open with notes etc and as soon as the boss comes by I just move the mouse middle scroll button and the desktop instantly changes to my works apps that are open with that long report I'm busy with (I'm only joking as I don't really do this but it is fully possible and now should work on Windows 10 and gives an idea of what virtual desktops can do).

Sticky Notes for Windows 10 was recently updated. The update came a few days before Windows 10 1903 was released which means if you’re on Windows 10 1809, or even 1803, you can still get the updated Sticky Notes app. The update has one highlight feature; you can finally pin sticky notes on virtual desktops. The notes that you open on a particular desktop will be pinned to it. If you switch away from the desktop, the note will not reappear on the desktop you’ve switched to.

RSS Is Better Than Twitter - unless you like adverts, trolls, a limited source for news, abusive comments...

There is a good reason people call Twitter the hell website. Cynicism, egos, unprovoked hostility, unchecked propaganda, sexism, bigotry, and outright hate — Twitter is as full of it as virtually anywhere online, and worse, it’s unbearably nonstop. Worse it controls what you see and in what order (and of course you can only follow Twitter accounts).

RSS is a family of technologies that give you a simple feed from a spot on the web — a news site, a podcast, a blog — into your RSS reader. It’s a timeline of sorts, yes, but it runs at a sane speed, and it stays in your control, unlike Facebook or Twitter’s unknowable whims, and it excludes the vast majority of toxic noise that characterizes so much of social media. Folks, RSS is still good. More than just good, RSS is better in many ways than Twitter.

Invented exactly 20 years ago this month on the back-end of a feverish dot-com boom, RSS (Real Simple Syndication) has persisted as a technology despite Google’s infamous abandonment with the death of Google Reader and Silicon Valley social media companies trying and succeeding to supplant it. In the six years since Google shut down Reader, there have been a million words written about the technology’s rise and apparent fall.

With RSS you decide what feeds/sources you follow (there are tricks to be able to follow Twitter accounts too), you can easily mark off what you have read or mark a particular feed as all read in one go, minus all the adds, comments, and clutter.

Although RSS tech may be old (like e-mail) you can use some really nice mobile apps and if you work via a cloud-based RSS reader like Feedly, InoReader, Newsblur, etc you can sync across your desktops and mobile devices. Some of the apps present a very clean configurable user interface. If you see something of interest two clicks will take a dive into the post/article at the website.

If you want to keep track of various blogs, news, and social feeds from many different places then an RSS reader is the way to go to enjoy it in an orderly fashion in one place.
