    15 time-saving technology tips??
    Yes and no....
    8 "solutions" for iPhone
    6 "solutions" for browsers
    1 other "solution" (adapter)
    I pretty much agree with donovands as I agree with Tomsguiderachel, over half of the "solutions" are for iPhone/iTouch though one of the solutions, is not only for iPhone (charger), and the other one uses a computer (evernote) and FORTUNATELY is not only for iPhone. In my opinion for this article to be a true "technology" article should be more varied, instead of being half of it dedicated to the iPhone. It's very used and many people have it, but is not the only one. When I read the title I expected everything but a half iPhone article. So most of the solutions for browser? not quite in this article. Sorry.
    At least I can take advantage of half of it.
    What a pity I'm not a Steve Jobs minion.....

    Before I looked at the comments I thought "hohum yet another ass kissing ad-article for the iPhone!"

    And I'm right.

    I feel like my time has been wasted reading an article focusing half it's time-saving solutions on iphone-only apps. I would love to see Tom's save me time by clearly separating or labeling articles for iOS devices so I can avoid them altogether. Many other tech websites already do this as a courtesy to their readers, and it also helps to cut down on the comment trolling.

    I'll never recoup the time of reading this apple centric app...while noticing that my own phone is android based.

    Yeesh, looking at most of the comments, seems like this was a clear swing and a miss...

    I like Toms Guide and check it frequently. However my time saving tip is to skip any of these articles on Tom's that are just a bunch of photos to click through. The download times on them is annoyingly slow...not that the pictures are big, but it seems that Tom's server can't respond quickly so that there is a long delay between frames that kills the buzz.

    Honestly, I got to the 6th tip and then looked at the comments. By the 6th one it was already nothing more than iPhone tips to me. This was badly titled - in fact totally misleading, I expect better on Tom's.

    Since I'm on a rant, I am tired of the media and common assumption of Apple ubiquity. I own an HTC Magic (brand name) but refer to it as an Android phone (the OS is what makes it work), not an iPhone. I own a Creative Zen Vision:M, not an iPod. I have nothing against Apple ot its products. I dislike the slack vocabulary used.

    I don't have an iPhone. If you were going to make most "tips" revolve around the iPhone, you should have stated so earlier.

    Most don't apply if you don't have an iPhone.
