    What technology do you use in learning Daf Yomi? How has this impacted your study of Daf Yomi?

    I use apps, ipads, touchpads, interactive online programming, brain imaging, robots, vaccines, and all technology.

    I have my Ipod leaving together with my Iphone. This has impacted me greatly. (it leaves me free to roam the streets).

    Every once in a while they get into a disagreement. How they fight it out!!

    Where do they go? (I guess that was supposed to say, “learning”.)

    Anyhow, to answer the OP, there are various shiurim available online, various email lists to subscribe to, and various apps for various devices. There’s also hebrewbooks.com and Otzar Hachochmah.

    A bit more information about your (husband’s) level and needs might be helpful in narrowing down what to recommend.

    DY: Yeah, that’s what I meant to write. Sometimes I’m too lazy to reread my posts, or I’m in a hurry, so I rely on my artificial spelling checker, and it leaves me with such silly mistakes.

    I just wanted to add, that ever since I got my technological gadgets to learn for me, I need the “How to fight boredom” thread!

    I use the beautiful new prints made available to us through the recent competitive Gemara market. Kinas Sofrim Tarbeh Chachmah.

    I learn Daf Yomi from Yated’s summary for women.

    I use an old Tal-Man Shas. So… I use 1980s printing technology? And the CR, I guess. Sort of.

    Sam, how do you find the Rashi?

    Tal-Man introduced the bold-faced Rashi in the 80s (maybe 90s). But I’ve never had a problem with using non-bolded Rashis either. It’s fairly intuitive, especially if you’ve learned that Daf before. Every Gemara I used until I was about 15 had non-bolded Rashis. The bold makes things slightly easier but it doesn’t bother me. I do a large chunk of learning (when I’m out) on dafyomi.org anyway and Rashi isn’t bolded there.

    Best. Technology. Ever.

    I have an app that listens to a daf yomi shiur for me, and then also reads the daf inside, and then also reads all the daf yomi websites. All without me even looking at or listening to anything.

    It literally does it all for me.

    As long as it saves the lchaim for you.

    Popa, are you paraphrasing the Local Frog?

    “Do the daf; you’ll finish Shas before you know it…”

    There’s a double meaning in that HaLeiVi…
