Digi was visiting the ARe Café the other day and spotted this awesome article that she wanted to read. Unfortunately, she was at the end of her banana break and had to get back to work. She was afraid she might forget where she found the article, which is why she got so excited when she saw the new “Send to Kindle” and “Pocket” icons on the Café posts (including hers!). Those nifty icons allowed her to save the article to her Kindle and in ...more
