Try to picture how Readers Digest often takes very lengthy books and condenses them way down for quick and easy reading? Or maybe your Grandpa remembers Classic Comics from his high school days – where the kids could read Hamlet in 10 minutes.

The folks who deliver this service have come up with a big time saver for you. They condense lengthy articles from hundreds of major publishers down to 100 words. These articles cover just about any category you can imagine. For example you can check out the dozens of broad topic such as: business, politics, sports, science, technology, arts, entertainment, style, health, food, travel, home, business or sports.

Just a few of the publications covered include: The Atlantic, Barron's, Business Week, Conde Nast Traveler, Forbes, Harvard Business Review, The New York Times, Sports Illustrated, The Washington Post and Fortune Magazine—plus many many others.

They take the long-form content and summarize it down to 100 words and then review and rate the material to make it easy for you to choose what to read, listen or watch.

Great time saver. And the cost is right – it’s on the house.

We’ll bet that there is someone in your family who is still huntin’ and peckin’ on the keyboard. This great place can help move them from the Society of Typing Laggards to the Society of Typing Wiz’s in no time – and it can even help the Wiz’s too. This great place has an online typing tutor for “Qwerty” keyboards (the one most of us are familiar with) plus Dvorak - the US alternative ANSI standard keyboard.

You’ll find most of the features here that you’d expect in a costly typing program – but completely complementary. You can learn hand positioning as you train with timed exercises and typing games.

And pretty quickly you’ll be a Wiz – without breaking the bank.
