I wrote the untold story of how Pocket turned down an acquisition from Evernote and began to expand on its ambitious vision:
Weiner suspects that the problem that millions are using Pocket to solve will only grow more thorny. When he started, he wanted only to save articles within a browser. The original iPhone, which came out the month before Weiner's Firefox extension, helped turn mobile devices into a primary reading destination. Then came tablets, Google Glass, and other wearable computers. The world is transforming into screens, Weiner says, and Pocket will be the way we move things around them.
