Inbox Zero is a rigorous approach to email management aimed at keeping the inbox empty.
Unroll.me is an app that brings a Tinder-esque way of cleaning up your inbox by just swiping to unsubscribe and undo years of damage within a few minutes. For example, I somehow have notched up 167 email subscriptions of newsletters, social media alerts and stores that I brought a Christmas gift from in back in 2007 and all have now gone forever after only 5 minutes of swiping.

Apple’s Tim Cook famously said “We Believe the Future of TV Is Apps” but the success of Periscope suggests that it could be tuning into each other's living rooms rather than traditional TV channel hopping.
When your favourite artist is playing a gig on the other side of the world, Periscope also enables music fans to tune into the performance and sample the atmosphere via someone else's smartphone.
As live television becomes more and more produced, it can also become less genuine. This is what excites us about bringing Periscope to the Apple TV — the notion that you, your friends and family can share what’s happening in the world right now, together - Periscope
The Periscope launch on Apple TV looks set to be a real game changer.
