The best productivity tools.
For people with no time to spare.



I have been playing with Meistertask trying to find a replacement for the imminently departing Wunderlist, which will probably end up looking like an uglier cousin of Microsoft Notes. I have yet to delve into all of Meistertask’s features but the initial experience has blown me away. Beautifully designed, Meistertask features a Kanban project stages layout, unlimited projects, tasks and project members with email alerts. Files can be attached to each task, which adds a preview icon to tasks. The stages are initially named “Open,” “In Progress” and “Done,” but can be renamed easily.

WD 4TB My Passport Ultra

At last! The first USB 3.1 Gen 1 hard drive with a USB Type-C port, which supports data transfer rates of up to 10 GB/s. Check out the unboxing video above. The 4TB version of WD My Passport Ultra for Mac currently retails for under $130. So much storage in such a small package! Of course, as can be expected from a hard disk, it’s slow compared to an SSD but this probably is the last hard disk you’ll ever buy. WD Unlocker works well and is easy to access from the menu icon installed, keeping all your files encrypted.
