Recomendo: issue no. 28

Browser trick:
If you type something in the URL bar and then press control + enter, whatever you type will be surrounded by www. and .com. — MF

Changing your mind:
You are only as young as the last time you changed your mind. Cass Sunstein compiled 10 great books. Here are 5 books to change liberal minds. And 5 books to change conservative minds. Read and see if you can change your mind. — KK

Followable:
At My Morning Routine, you can search the morning routines of 215+ interesting and successful people by profession, age, wake-up time and more. Their stats page has some interesting insights and is updated weekly (like 66% of those interviewed wake up and meditate, and the majority of them prefer to drink water before coffee and eat fruit for breakfast). — CD

Security:
For internet security pay extremely close attention to the url bar in your browser. For just reading it’s not so important, but if it is a site that you want to log into with a password you should see a green lock icon before the url in Chrome, and the phrase “https” should also be in green. There’s a gray lock in Safari. Firefox, and IE. No lock? Beware. If you click on the lock in your browser it gives you security details about that site. — KK

Compatibility:
Google Keep on iPhone (Free) makes it painless for me and my Android partner to stay synced-up on shopping lists and reminders. Also useful is Emojipedia, so I can make sure the emojis I’m sending aren’t lost in translation.  — CD

Deal:
I’m a very happy Amazon Prime customer. The free shipping and other benefits make the $99 annual fee well worth it. I also have the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card, which I use to make all my purchases on Amazon, because you get 5% on every purchase you make on the site. Amazon is offering a $70 Amazon.com Gift Card instantly upon credit card approval when you apply for a card. — MF
