HiFi? LoFi? MeFi.

Believe it or not, I was just starting to look around for a new source of independent music. You know, stuff I’ve never heard before. In the basement, back in a corner of the bedroom, out in your best friend’s garage kind of stuff. Twangy, college-pop tunes and glitchy, experimental electronica and the like. So, … Read the rest of this item

Everybody in tabs.

If you’ve been following the various rumor sites or Dave Hyatt’s Surfin’ Safari weblog, you probably already know that this version also sports niceties such as form autofill, the ability to reset your privacy settings, bookmark importing, improved AppleScriptiness, and ongoing … Read the rest of this item

Recently spotted.

I found the following statement running along the perforated fold on a rather formidable-looking bank draft. It read, and I quote: “This document is printed on Tonerfuse™ security paper with bleed through MICR and gothic numbering.” Whoa. I’m still deciphering what some of this means, but I’m pretty sure that this little old piece of … Read the rest of this item

What I wouldn’t give for one of those.

You know how you can install one of the those point-of-use taps that dispenses almost-boiling hot water right at your kitchen sink? Great idea, right? Sooner or later some smart person will see the light and combine one of those things with a coffee maker. When they do, do I ever have the web address … Read the rest of this item
