Big illuminated mute button
The MuteMe button is a large illuminated physical mute button that plugs into your computer with a USB cord and sits on your desk. When your mic is off, it glows red. Press the button to unmute and the light changes to green. No more “We can’t hear you, you’re on mute.” — MF
Stop bleeding bandage
For the past ten years I’ve packed some Quick Clot bandage in my first aid kit. It’s a bandage that decreases bleeding five times faster than a regular bandage, from 10 minutes to 2 minutes. It is especially useful for scalp wounds which bleed profusely. It is expensive ($15) so I cut one up into smaller pieces to use for smaller gashes. — KK
Search podcast episodes by keyword
A while back I recommended Listen Notes as a podcast search engine, but unfortunately the advance search features are now behind a paywall. Recomendo reader Ken Rogan suggested Podchaser.com as an alternative and I’ve been using it for the past couple months to find episodes on specific subjects or keywords for free and without registering. — CD
100 tips for a better life
Here are a few favorites from ideopunk’s list of 100 useful tips:
  • “Where is the good knife?” If you’re looking for your good X, you have bad Xs. Throw those out. 
  • Discipline is superior to motivation. The former can be trained, the latter is fleeting. You won’t be able to accomplish great things if you’re only relying on motivation.
  • Sturgeon’s law states that 90% of everything is crap. If you dislike poetry, or fine art, or anything, it’s possible you’ve only ever seen the crap. Go looking!

Twitter influence audit
To gauge the proper influence of an influencer you need a tool to sort out all the inactive, fake, bots, and low-quality followers they will inevitably have. The higher the follower count, the higher percentage of hollow followers. Sparktoro will rate Twitter accounts for you. It says 21% of my followers are fakish. (But not you!) — KK
Create moments of transcendence
Leo Babauta of Zen Habits wrote a wonderfully succinct post on How to Make the Most of Your 24 Hours. There are 4 things he mentions: intentionality, only 3 important tasks, gratitude and the most important being creating multiple moments of transcendence throughout your day. The days I remember the most are not the days I cross everything off my list. It’s the days when I slow down and deepen the moments and spaces in between tasks. — CD
