Flippin’ Cool!

I’m writing at CatholicMom.com today in the Tech Talk area, and I have a review of FlipBoard this month, which is a visual feed organizer that has various ways to share the information you find. Google Reader is now gone for good. At one time, it was the main way I kept up with blogs and…
