CSS Tricks: The CSS Almanac.
These and a few planks, and you’ve got a rustic table or desk. Lovely.
ArtDaily: Christie’s to offer the most important silver coffee-pot ever to come to auction.
Sure beats an old sock and a saucepan.
CNet: U.S. Navy dolphins find antique torpedo.
A totally steampunk object, don’t you think? Even down to using a hand-wound propeller mechanism.
When I see folks brag of contemporary sterile studio spaces, I continue to wonder “Where’s all the paper?” and “What about Post-its?” And … “Crumbs?” They don’t even show a wastebasket.
Sure, I could clean my office to this state of vacuum. But I’d never get anything done.
Guardian.UK: Giant 1950s robot Gygan up for sale.
The video’s a hoot-and-a-half. I sorely miss that style of narration.
BlessThisStuff: 2014 Triumph Tiger Explorer XC.
The reason I didn’t buy one? I couldn’t straddle the bike at stoplights without standing on my tip-toes. Short inseam, long body. I felt it was a little too dangerous, given my beginner-mind. I bought the Nighthawk, where I could plop both soles flat on the ground. Wish I’d bought the TransAlp, in retrospect. Nighthawk’s got all the caché of a sewing machine. And it can’t even competently handle a logging road.
CNet: Adobe unplugs Creative Cloud sync tool during transition.
Turned mine off. I was getting annoyed by the constant “Creative Cloud can’t sync” messages. I don’t use the feature anyway, at the present time. Leaving it deactivated still gives me quick access to the Creative Cloud website from the menu bar. Note the link at the bottom of the article to the CC Status page.
Supercharged: 1955 Custom Ford T-Bird by Bo Zolland.
Uh-huh. Part of me is titillated, the other part horrified. Perhaps it’s just the baby blue paint. All the other shots are from the rear; I can’t judge without seeing the whole thing.
BlessThisStuff: 1954 Ferrari 500 Mondial Spyder.
Well, if I can’t have a Porsche 550, I suppose this’ll do.
Motorcyclist: 2014 Honda Grom | First Look.
Aw, damn. Nothing’s quite as fun as a small bike you can throw around. If it were only 250cc’s. A 125 won’t pull my 185lbs up hills.
Selectism: John Lennon’s first car to be sold at auction.
A ‘65 Ferrari 350GT 2+2 Coupe. Imagine.
blog.gibbon.co: The Grumpy Designer Syndrome.
“This feeling of being grumpy and not satisfied is on the one hand very inconvenient and annoying (in particular for your coding colleagues) but on the other hand it might be absolutely necessary for any designer that has the goal of becoming the best he/she can be.” Familiar!
Motoriginal: 1958 Buick Century Convertible.
Fantastic grill. The past is another country; they indeed do things differently there. Could we ever figure out today what designers/streamliners had in mind then to create such a thing?
HypeBeast: Fiat x Smeg “Smeg 500” Mini Fridge.
And here I always thought a VW Bus resembled a refrigerator. Version two?
Bike EXIF: T120 Bonneville.
Triumph. Custom build. Springs on the seat (a must). Steampunk. Oh, yes.
Valet.: Oakley Frogskin Sunglasses.
The Verge: The illusion of simplicity: photographer Peter Belanger on shooting for Apple.
Yep, simplicity is hard. Someone go back in time and tell Ronald Reagan ...
Digital Photography Review: Olympus PEN E-P5 Hands-on Preview.
Like to see a comparison against the new Fuji RF.
The Typekit Blog: Sneak preview—Syncing fonts to your desktop.
SciAm: Alleviating Poverty with a Washing Machine Powered by Your Feet.
URDesign Magazine: Toyota ME.WE concept car by Jean-Marie Massaud.
I approve of what looks like a dent-proof exterior.
Coolist: Marshall Monitor Headphones.
I used to love my AKGs for audio work … but I’d surely like to try these. I suspect, however, it’s more cachet than capability.
