Windows Mobile magazine ends, but iPhone Life launches on September 9th

While I get the majority of my news and content online, I still do subscribe to a few magazines including MacWorld, Laptop, and Smartphone & Pocket PC Magazine. I am very saddened by the news that there will be one final issue of Smartphone & Pocket PC Magazine. As you can read in the press release they are working to make the final issue a "keeper" with lots of Windows Mobile reviews, new tips and how-tos, a guide to best accessories, software, and much more. The final issue will be on newstands in November. However, iPhone Life will launch on September 9th and you can subscribe for only $25 for 2 years of magazines.

Cool Tools - What is your Twitter grade?

HubSpot has launched what it is calling the Twitter Grader, which seems to be the now-defunct Tweeterboard reincarnate -- yet with a proposed business purpose.
