1. Read This Twice is a large collection of books with verified recommendations by interesting people. Looks like a fun site to browse around and then populate your Goodreads list.

2. Belkin is shipping its new BoostCharge 3-in-1 charger for all of your Apple wireless things. It’ll charge any Qi-enabled iPhone, as well as your Apple Watch and AirPods with wireless charging case. ($119)

3. Moment is a macOS menubar countdown app from the same folks who brought us the fabulous OneSwitch.

4. The team over at 9to5Mac put together a feature-length video with over 250 – ahem – features from the iOS 14 beta. I need to carve out some time for this. 🤓

5. More on what makes HEY… HEY.

6. Lead designer Jonas Downey posted this retrospective on HEY’s early designs and how the email app came to be.

7. What’s better than a big ’ol iced coffee in the summer? Matt Gilligan offers this recipe, and I’d like to give it a shot. Just need a kitchen scale… ☕️

8. This Star Wars rumor may be completely unfounded, but it’s still a super fun thought experiment.

9. I really enjoyed this Rolling Stone profile of Crystal Talifiero, a long-time member of Billy Joel’s touring band. (Remember concerts?)

10. Maybe this guide to waking up feeling fantastic is what I need to finally conquer my snooze button. 💤
