Awesome Links #25: Reeder, iFile, Positivity, Financial Willpower

This week’s Awesome Links features a look at the desktop edition of Reeder, a new sync option for jailbroken iOS devices, a story of positivity and how to increase your financial willpower.

Bringing iOS to the Desktop: Why You Should Get Excited

Mac.appstorm, one of our sister sites, has profiled an interesting RSS reader for the Mac. Called Reeder, it started as an iPhone app which offered a better interface for Google Reader. They’ve now released a desktop version (Reeder for Mac beta) and it looks like it’s going to be as popular as the original iPhone app. Check it out.

iFile Lets You Transfer Files From PC to iPhone Over WiFi, Without iTunes

Staying with iOS, here’s an app for jaibroken iPhones and iPods that can help you bypass iTunes and transfer files over the air. Known as iFile (covered by GT Mobiles), the app makes wireless file transfer extremely easy. It’s a common complaint that iTunes can be a real pain sometimes. You might want to try this out and see if that makes you more productive with such tasks.

The Art of Positivity (And How it Saved My Life)

This post is written by Darren Rowse (you know him, right?) on his new blog FeelGooder– and – it’s very, very personal. It gives you a deep insight into the life of a successful man who once was so depressed that he considered throwing himself in front of a truck. And then he met someone who taught him the art of positivity and how to change for good. The rest, as long time bloggers like me would say, is history. A must read for everyone.

New in Labs: Smart mute and easier ways to unmute

The Gmail team has introduced a new labs feature called Smart Mute which, in my opinion, could make some people a lot more productive with email. The mute feature lets you stop discussion threads (like emails between multiple team members) from appearing in your inbox, but that means you can also miss a conversation addressed to you. Smart Mute will take care of that effectively.

How to Improve Your Financial Willpower

And lastly, the NY Times has a cool post by financial whiz kid Ramit Sethi on how to manage your finances productively and make your life better. Every one of us can learn something from this article. (I think I need to spend less on coffee!)
