If it’s too expensive… don’t buy it.
If it doesn’t have the features you want… don’t use it.
If it offends you… don’t read it.
If it doesn’t work right… fix it.
If you are sick of it… do something about it.
Actions speak louder than Emails, Tweets, whatever.

- Caching Tutorial
This needs to be fired on window onload rather than document ready, but it's a clever idea.
I am going to try this for trying out a lens before buying.

I’m not sure I’d ever want an extra physical device on my desk for something so specific (multitaskers only!) but it’s interesting to see stuff like this. Gmail users are a hardcore bunch.
- BACON or BEER CAN
- Icon Finder Blog
Icon Finder has really stepped up to be the best and nicest way to find icons quick. Now they have a nice blog.
- Peter Jackson Taking Flight With ‘Mortal Engines’?
Peter Jackson + Post Apocalypse + Steampunk – Young Adults = Probably going to be pretty great, assuming it doesn’t get too young-adulty like Twilight, but I don’t think PJ would do that to us.
Man there is some weird shit on iStockphoto
- Whiskey thief
Saw a dude use one of these on Good Eats the other day and thought it was the coolest name for a device ever. It’s basically a big copper tube likened to a drinking straw. It nearly closes at the top with a small hold and tapers a bit at the tip. You stick it in the hole of a whiskey barrel all the way down, put your thumb over the hole, and draw it back up. Because of the pressure, it will pull up some whiskey with it, then you release your thumb to pour it into glasses.
- Style vs. Design
I love nearly everything Zeldman writes. Always so damn spot on and makes us feel good.
- New Domino’s Pizza
Oh Yes We Did. I used to hate Dominos passionately. I’ve almost done a total 180. They’ve gotten a ton better, and now they are reinventing their pizza again. I tried it and it’s wicked good. You know, it’s still cheap delivery pizza, but I like it.

Well written article about freelancing
- A short PayPal horror story
I log into my PayPal account and what do I see? “For my protection” they have limited the ability of my account to withdraw or send money but most severely, they also disallowed the account to receive payments!
