I love this video. These cartoon sound effects are as familiar to me as my own voice.
This is an amazing video. I’ve seen these kinds of tapestries when I traveled in Europe and always wondered how they were created.
Apparently, Canadian scientists are incredibly unimaginative.
“Something wicked this way comes…”
I’m happy to post the correction today.
I love these stories of scientists quietly working behind the scenes to provide us with information like this.
This is not a “the sky is falling!” situation but it’s definitely something to keep an eye on. I’m sure Apple is.
Devastating news for the industry, the employees and all of us, young or old, who loved going to Toys ‘R’ Us.
How cool must it have been to have Apple come to you and say, “Could you give us a hand with something?”
Whenever I travel, I do research on the city and country I’m going to, no matter how big or small. I like learning new things about new places and Wikivoyage can help a lot.
At first blush, this seems idiotic but on reading the article, I understand and appreciate the point of the “service”.
This is all kinds of mind-blowing and may have real consequences as we go forward into space.
That reasoning seems odd. What does “attention-grabbing products” have to do with a company’s reputation? Especially given that “film production company The Weinstein Co made its debut at 99th out of 100 on the list”. So – its reputation got better?
Another reason to be wary of “photo contests” in general and absolutely avoid paid contests.
Manjoo’s piece was widely shared on social media but I read it with my usual dose of hefty skepticism about everything Manjoo writes and he didn’t disappoint. Or rather, he disappointed in exactly the way I knew he would.
I used Texture back when it originally started up (it was called Next then) and liked the service’s potential, even if I didn’t use it after a few months. It will be interesting to see what Apple does with this going forward.
Amazing video showing some of the work that went into creating illuminated manuscripts.
Like most lists, this is completely subjective but, for at least the first eight on the list, I would have to agree.
I’m in the latter camp that can’t really use this (I use Twitterrific to manage this kind of stuff on a finer level) but for some of you, this might be useful.
It’s tax season so please make sure your less tech-savvy family and friends are aware of scams in general and this type specifically. My wife almost got caught in a “Canada Post” phishing scheme a few days ago.
Even a more-than-cursory look at the two photos would lead you to believe they were identical. Great story.
Heavy Metal was unabashedly sexist, even misogynist, but as a kid I devoured every issue, in particular, the amazing writing. I’d never read the fantasy genre before discovering it in the pages of Heavy Metal.
Raise your hand if you’d forgotten this even existed.
When this story first broke yesterday, I didn’t post about it because I thought, “Naw. He didn’t say that. No one would be that stupid.”
This view of the earth is oddly fascinating.
Good article pointing out the bottom line – Apple’s plans for the HomePod go far beyond the idea of just being a “smart assistant”.
I really shouldn’t find this story as funny as I do. And it’s an entirely predictable problem.
What a fun read about pinball, a game I still love to play.
Behind the scenes stuff always fascinates me and what goes on at a crematorium definitely qualifies.
