The October Brothers in Tech Suggestions (BITS) Episode

You know, sometimes you just have to give the audience what they want…and we know you want more BiTs! So, we are here to please. In this episode of Brothers in Tech, the Brothers each provide two BiTs (Brothers in Tech Suggestions) that we think you will enjoy. This round is all about apps and services to save time and increase efficiency (although the video browser could be used for evil as well…).  

Brian’s Picks

·      Cardhop: App (Mac/iOS) for managing your contacts. Easy access in menu bar (Mac). $3.33/month (which includes Fantastical…a Fantastic calendar app!)
