Pocket, everyone's favorite service that was formerly Read It Later, just announced a paid plan. For $5 a month or $45 a year, your Pocketed pages will persist forever in a searchable, tag-able, digital library. Like Evernote, but exclusively for things you probably won't get around to reading.

While SIM cards hold all the stuff address books used to, some people just can't part from that old ink-and-paper. The SIMbook lets people know that you're aware of modern technology, yet you choose to go retro.
While we knew much of Sony's new netbook's specs already, the price was still a mystery. But new leaks put the Vaio Pocket awfully close to the $1000 mark, which makes it a pricey toy indeed.
