  4. http://www.dediserve.com/
    Cloud hosting, bit pricey, can be configured ram / disk / cpu / etc. Works out twice as expensive as Linode. Arguably has a more "enterprise" featureset.
  5. https://discussions.apple.com/message/16764587#16764587
    Annoying bug in OSX internet connection sharing that screws the default route when it's enabled. Fix is `sudo route del default && sudo route add default xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx` (get the default route before enabling).
  6. https://put.io/
    Hosted torrents (in the cloud) from $10/month for 50G disk space. Torrent online, download. Simple, but a bit pricey...
  7. https://thethemefoundry.com/blog/why-we-dont-use-a-cdn-spdy-ssl/

  15. http://www.misfitwearables.com/
    A super fancy version of the jawbone up or the fitbit. Well, fancy in the sense of appearance. Small, sleek, designer.
  16. http://quantifiedself.com/
