Reclama interzisa de Apple

De ce a fost interzisa?

The newspaper responsible for the ad, Newsday, told me yesterday; "We have taken the commercial 'Flypaper' down and its short, glorious run appears to be over." Newsday would not say why and Apple did not respond to my request for comment.

This morning I open an e-mail from someone purporting to work at Newsday and asking that his identity not be revealed.

 "Newsday got a cease and desist letter threatening all of our apps, if we did not remove the commercial immediately. They took exception to the fact that the (iPad) glass shattered into large jagged pieces ... Your instincts are correct."

Grow a Green Curtain to Cut Down on Cooling Costs

Across Japan, the Kyocera company has been experimenting with growing huge leaning trellises for food bearing plants, positioned to share the sides and windows of their buildings. They've radically lowered their energy bills—the wall beneath a trellis is, on average, 15 degrees cooler—and even started harvesting the fruit and vegetables from the trellises to use in the cafeteria so employees can enjoy fresh produce grown on site.

'Breathtaking' Document Reveals Pepsi's Logo is Pinnacle of Entire Universe

An internal document from the branding company has surfaced: Breathtaking bullshit.

See, there's no way the branding agency could charge millions if they just went in and told Pepsi, "Yea, we kinda rotated your old logo a little bit, and made the wavy white line thingy in the middle go diagonal." Instead, they prepared this 27-page document, titled "BREATHTAKING Design Strategy," to prove that this logo is a veritable Da Vinci Code of branding, drawing on everything from magnetic fields to the "Golden Ratio." Highlights:

Guatemala Pedal Powered Machines

Bicimáquinas are pedal-powered machines that assist with a variety of jobs in the home, on the farm, on the road and in small businesses. Each bicimáquina is handmade in our workshop using a combination of old bikes, concrete, wood, and metal. So far, we have developed several original designs that have proven to be both functional and economical.
Sunt multe zone izolate din Romania care ar beneficia de pe urma acestor tehnologii.

Bedbugs return part 2

Se pare ca epidemia e destul de grava si a atras atentia CDCului

The classic bedbug strain that all newly caught bugs are compared against is a colony originally from Fort Dix, N.J., that a researcher kept alive for 30 years by letting it feed on him.

But Stephen A. Kells, a University of Minnesota entomologist, said he “prefers not to play with that risk.” He feeds his bugs expired blood-bank blood through parafilm.

Coby Schal of North Carolina State said he formerly used condoms filled with rabbit blood, but switched to parafilm because his condom budget raised eyebrows with university auditors.

Eu zic sa pastram tot DDTul care ne-a ramas si sa il pastram cu sfintenie just in case.

De asemenea niste tips:
  • Check the corners of your mattress (under) for little reddish brown spots. This is the first thing you should do at every hotel you stay at
  • They leave black-grey poop stains on white surfaces
  • They are visible with the naked eye
