They really really do

Compared to me, most people seem dumb – “Fucking Zionism, how does that work?”. No seriously,

Spinner rage

Spinner Rage – “Hey wow, a designer who likes to nit pick!” It’s kind of amusing how hard it can be to “un-see” things like this though.

Following on the keyboard theme

As a lover of my Das Keyboards, I should probably find the Mechanical Keyboard Guide interesting reading. However, I don’t. You might though! This USB Keyboard and Smartphone stand is something I don’t quite get. It feels like convergence for the sake of it, rather than for any intelligent reason. Tags: Gadgets

Apple to unveil revamped 11.6-inch MacBook Air

Not sure whether 11.6 vs. 13.3 is a good move, but as always it’ll depend on the feel of the device as a whole. More what made me stop and marvel at this article is the fact that article reminds us that the MacBook Air was unveiled in January of 2008. Wow. That seems like a very long time ago indeed.

Weak Social Networks

Nice quote: Social networks are effective at increasing participation—by lessening the level of motivation that participation requires....   Facebook activism succeeds not by motivating people to make a real sacrifice but by motivating them to do the things that people do when they are not motivated enough to make a real sacrifice.   Via Global Guerrillas - Weak Social Networks Tags: Social Networks

Make your small laptop bigger

While I do get why you’d want one of these things, it just strikes me as such a very human thing to do – spend time and effort getting a small portable laptop, and then complain that it’s too small, so buy something to make it larger! Logitech Announces Speaker Lapdesk N550 for Small Laptops

Every now and then, an application comes along which seems so obvious you wonder why it took so long to be created. Well, Canned feels like one of those applications. Store up pre created SMS messages in order to save time when you need to send them. It’s something which phones have had for quite some time in the form of message templates, however always felt too clunky to use. Canned is much simpler – however since buying it, I’ve not had a chance to use it yet. Hmmm.

PCI Data Security Standards Rock

I’ve been holding off posting this one as I’ve been waiting for the right amusing/cynical tag line to post underneath it. But I give up – there’s simply too many options and it’s hard to choose the right one.
