For some, the daily commute is the most dreaded part of the day. For others, that block of time is something to look forward to and take advantage of. More often than not, the difference is all about what you're doing with your commute.

Lifehacker contributor and entrepreneur Jason Freedman discusses how he's reclaimed his commute by "writing" posts for his blog, which, to remain commute-friendly, involves dictating his ideas to his phone and later paying a few bucks to a user of TaskRabbit to transcribe his posts. For him, it's been a revelation that's allowed him to reclaim his commute:
In fact, I'm kind of addicted to it right now and I've done six or seven blog posts in just the last few weeks all from my car, all while stuck in traffic … all through the voice recorder. Now, driving through rush hour is not so obtrusive because I know I'm going to create a blog post out of it. I actually look forward to longer drives.
