Let’s face it, the Internet is a distracting place.
At any given moment there are thousands of videos, Facebook posts, tweet-storms and memes to keep you from getting work done. But Saent, a new productivity startup aims to make its users more productive with a combination of distraction-blocking hardware and software.
At a basic level, Saent acts much like other distraction-reducing software. When enabled, the desktop app blocks sites and apps that are identified as “unproductive” in order to encourage short-term productivity.
