5 great online articles you should actually read.

If you are like me you probably skim through blogs and online newspapers on a regular basis but never actually set aside time to read longer articles. I often start reading something then get a bit distracted (by the work I should be doing in the first place) and bookmark the page to read later. Recently I have started using Instapaper which is a very hand service which allows you to easily bookmark articles in a newspaper format. The service, from Marco Arment (of Tumblr fame) lets you put a button on your toolbar which says ‘read later’. If you click on this whilst on a page a copy is saved on your personal Instapaper homepage.

Anyway here are 5 great articles which I have found the time to read and really enjoyed.
