If you're using the bookmarking service Pocket, you probably have heaps of articles archived that you plan on reading later. PocketRocket helps you whittle down those archives by sending a random article to your email every day then archiving it.


It's often hard to set aside time to read all the interesting articles you encounter during the day, which is why bookmarking services designed to maintain a 'read later' list have become so competitive. Today we're looking at the most popular three and pitting them against one another: Pocket, Instapaper and Readability. Here's how they stack up.


If you're always on the lookout for new things to read, but you don't want to manually save every link your friends send you, you can create your own little network for Pocket, Readability or Instapaper with the Save-by-Email function. Depending on what service you and your friends use, it can be a fun new way to stumble on articles.
