Let Grandma keep clipping newspaper stories. You, on the other hand, should try Pocket, formerly known as Read It Later. Save articles, Web pages, and videos offline to view later. Once content is saved, it syncs to the cloud. This is great for road trips and commutes when you're offline; instead of spending hours surfing cool stories at work, just “pocket” what looks interesting and read them on the way home. Using a Windows 8 tablet? Pocket runs in the browser, or you can try an alternative like InstaFetch.
