Mobento app TED Yale

An app that’s a knowledge-booster rather than a brain drain is always worth checking out, and Mobento has the potential to turn you into a walking, talking Stephen Hawking. It aggregates videos from such learned sources as Stanford, Yale, TED and NASA, and allows you to both stream and download them for later viewing (not sure how (or even if) they managed to get permission for that, mind). The search function even shows you at exactly what point in a video the words you’re looking for appear, which is pretty nifty. Time-saving brain waves ahoy!
