Bought a wireless keyboard today to eventually replace the iPad Keyboard Dock I ordered online with my iPad. One really should try out a product before buying peripherals. But what I was really looking for was a stand that kept my iPad upright in either landscape or portrait. Neither the…

Other than looking good, fancy cubes, ice spheres and even crushed ice keep the drink cold. Smaller cubes have more surface area and therefore add to the dilution of the drink. We don’t want that. We may be having a great conversation with old friends or trying to finish cooking dinner and set…

What the fuck kind of school bans The Qu’ran… AND The Divine Comedy? Also, if your school bans Animal Farm they are more than likely trying to brainwash you.

Robot Chicken has released a new action figurine dubbed “Convention Nerd,” which I believe will be exclusively available to attendees of Comic-Con 2010, which is scheduled to start a week from tomorrow.

While I was interested in comic books as an adolescent, it appears that I escaped the…

Gillian was tall and thin with white-blonde hair trimmed close, tipped pink and moussed on end, raw eyes, and such taken-aback brows that, my first morning in the office—it was my only interview in New York—I thought I’d mistaken my day to be there.

“No, you’re on time,” she said. “You’ll get…

I used to be a little jealous of Mashable. The site came out of nowhere in 2005 and instantly tapped into the social zeitgeist. It was constantly breaking stories about hot social properties like Twitter and Facebook and had a highly engaged and active readership. It had a sense of fun and a need to do good. It was, in essence, virtually unlike any other site or blog I knew on the Web.
 
Now, as Mashable makes some of its most significant changes and expands and reorganizes to cover social, tech, news, politics entertainment and more—all through the prism of social and digital—I won’t have to ask anymore how Mashable’s doing it. I’ll be inside, helping to make it happen.
 
When founder and CEO Pete Cashmore launched his own blog in 2005, he named it Mashable to represent the way you could mash together all kinds of digital/web services to make something new. Today, Mashable is one of the Web’s most popular web sites, attracting 15 million visitors a month and Cashmore’s choice of a name seems positively clairvoyant.

For many years, I started my daily commute in Brooklyn, at the Bergen Street stop on the F Train. Which means that for 40 minutes, until I emerged at 42nd Street in Manhattan, I was WW —…

John Gruber, referring to an article by Nilay Patel:

Relevant today because I just got my TikTok band for the Nano, as my reward for backing the wildly-successful Kickstarter project. The TikTok is everything I could have hoped for: the Nano fits perfectly and the wristband is supple and comfortable. But for the reasons outlined by Patel above, the current Nano just isn’t ideal for use as a full-time wristwatch.

Not promising for me, as I believe my TikTok is sitting in my business UPS mailbox as I write this. The good news? I ordered the TikTok before shelling out cash for a Nano, which I still haven’t done.
