  • Audible

    That is the only one on the list I agree with. I find Audible great when doing the housework, walking the dog or driving in the car.

  • slideshows on zdnet

    Love your slideshows, but we are in 2013-- it is ridiculous that the whole page must refresh to go from slide to slide.

  • Better than Google Maps?

    If you haven't already done so, check out Waze. This crowd-sourced active live traffic app also gives you audible turn-by-turn directions to your destination, warns you of traffic cops ahead, and even dynamically will suggest an alternate route if an incident is blocking the route ahead of you significantly.
