Apple and Nike are gearing up for a big announcement this fall? I dunno. Tempted to say "I'll pass."

The Invention of the AeroPress and a bunch of other little details about inventing, trial and error, business, etc.
P.S. Apparently the preferred method of brewing is upside down:

Friendly reminder: you can go to http://www.google.com/settings/ads/ to opt out of a lot of Google Ads tracking.
I kept seeing ad after ad for HostGator (enough that I will now strongly not consider using HostGator for anything), and quickly opted out to clear those from my computer.
In general I don't mind ad tracking. I'd rather have relevant ads than irrelevant ones.

You can check out 20 pictures here. I've seen them all before (not those specific pictures… but the insides of golf balls cut in half), but they're still cool to see.

I oarked just as the store opened, walked in just after the last person who had waited in line entered, and snagged the only copy of R.E.M. Unplugged that the store had.
I was back in my car and on the road again within three minutes.
So… my first and last Record Store Day was a rousing success!

MAKE has a story on How I Got My Job as a Lego Designer. If I had known that was a thing, I may have beat him to the punch… Gosh I loved playing with Lego as a kid.

It's a nice presentation. With some surprising information on suicide in particular.

Yeah, on Android. It's a bit of a neat trick, since they can't exactly have a very big aperture, but it seems to be "okay."

Aside from notifying me when I can't hear or see my phone (or feel it), I don't see much point in wearables.
And I rarely wear a watch.

I'm writing the gist of this in the future by a few days. I just had a conversation with someone I respected. He equated - because his religion compels him to - homosexuality with child molestation. He steadfastly believes that homosexuality is 100% choice, and is never biological. He's quite firm on that point.
I no longer consider this person someone with whom I wish to speak.
So given that background, I read Anil Dash's piece on being more tolerant, or less of a jerk, with interest.

Memories of Steve, by Don Melton.
I'm not going to quote anything. Just go read it.
