Cramer Learns How to Read it Later: Old Dog, New Blog


NEW YORK (MainStreet)—Jim Cramer is busy and can't always read everything he wants to on the spot, so for this episode of Old Dog, New Blog, my sister, Nicole, and I introduced him to Instapaper and Pocket.

These two apps function as the TiVo of the Internet--allowing you to squirrel away for later those longer articles or blog posts you don't have time to read now.

"But why can't I just go back and hit the webpage and search for it?" Cramer asked us.

Of course he could, but for someone on the go--especially in transit with spotty Internet--these apps allow him to bundle the content he needs to digest right onto his phone or tablet. That way, on the subway, for example, he can pull up a piece or a few on his iPhone without the need for a 3G connection.
