Quick Tip: Quickly copy passwords from 1Password in iOS »
It’s a little known secret, but there’s a quick shortcut to copying passwords in the 1Password iOS app. Bradley shows us how to skip a couple of taps when using our favorite password manager.
This is a pretty straight-forward tip, so we suggest just giving it a shot yourself. The hardest part will be breaking your current habit of tapping into the application information to get the copy button.
Brad Dowdy’s sweet setup »
Brad Dowdy is a pen addict. By day, he writes pen reviews at The Pen Addict and makes pen cases at Nock Co. By night, he covers his night shift job as a UNIX administrator, and all the remaining time goes to his wife and kids. There’s sometimes some sleep involved, too.
Unlike so many of the setups we feature here, the computer and devices take a backseat with Brad’s setup. The digital tools that we use to get our work done are exciting and fun, but the simplicity and joy that comes from using analog tools is incomparable.
The setup feels comfortable though. […] The computer is an afterthought most of the time.
Brad also has several awesome apps on his phone that we heartily recommend.

The Toolys & Toys Christmas Catalog »
Tools & Toys, our sister site, published a Christmas Catalog this week that contains a lot of great recommendations for the loved ones in your life. What makes this catalog different than a lot of other catalogs is the personal experience behind every recommendation.
We have put together a list with short personal reviews of few items which meet certain criteria: they are products we own and use; we personally vouch for their quality; and they are useful and enjoyable.
Go have a look. I guarantee you’ll find at least one interesting item in that list.
Review: The Kindle Voyage »
Stephen Hackett, Editor-in-Chief of The Sweet Setup, published a review of Amazon’s newest top-line Kindle device, the Voyage. If you’re an avid reader and are curious about this new premium offering, Stephen can help you decide.
The question at hand is this: is the extra dough for the Voyage worth it? In my experience — coming from a first-generation Paperwhite — the answer is yes, if you use your Kindle heavily. If you don’t, or if you don’t mind the display you’ve already got, the Voyage may be worth skipping.
