I probably won’t be able to afford this.
I love this car.

John E. Karlin was instrumental in shaping the telephone as we know it:
An early experiment involved the telephone cord. In the postwar years, the copper used inside the cords remained scarce. Telephone company executives wondered whether the standard cord, then about three feet long, might be shortened. Mr. Karlin’s staff stole into colleagues’ offices every three days and covertly shortened their phone cords, an inch at time. No one noticed, they found, until the cords had lost an entire foot.
Facebook is a continuing nightmare of privacy disasters. It’s the bathroom door that resists all efforts at locking, swinging open again and again while you’re trying to poop.
So, uhm… This is how Microsoft imagines people using a Surface Pro? That would actually almost kinda explain this whole mess. (via)

One year ago: “It’s like Twitter, but, you know, for pictures.”
Today: “It’s like Instagram, but, you know, for words.”
Gabriele Meldaikyte transformed five fundamental gestures of today’s multitouch interfaces – tap, scroll, flick, swipe, pinch – into a series of physical sculptures to preserve them beyond today’s platforms and devices.
Inspired by traditional Victorian floriography, writer and artist Ed Saperia developed a series of over 200 “flower codes”, allowing you to express anything from a simple romantic gesture (“I adore you”) to a loaded question (“Someone else?”) or even an insult (“Creep!”) using nothing but a few common flowers.
