    Again, I am pretty loathe to do “refer posts,” or ones that just use up your time and reading efforts to point you to another post, but this one I’m pointing to here is the sort of thing people love and it’s pretty useful: Fast Company has a quick-hit list of 10 big-name entrepreneurs giving props to the apps they positively can’t live without. Some of them, as it happens, I’ve already recommended for you guys on my own. Others I hadn’t heard of before and I’m sure the same is probably true for some of you guys.

    For example, Tim Ferriss (yes, of “The 4-Hour Workweek,” among other titles) told Fast Company that he “can’t live without” Jumpcut, which is a free tool that allows you to copy and paste multiple items simultaneously. Well, not simultaneously, but it gives you the capability to copy and paste multiple things without losing any of them, period, which is pretty nifty.

    Anyway, take a look at the other eight apps (ooh, mysterious!) in the link here. Happy hunting!
