I had to get an e-ink photo frame for an Xmas gift and, after exhaustively researching the matter for about 8 minutes, have decided that the one from Frame Labs is clearly the least cheesy. Its ArtFrame e-ink photo frame [Frame Labs] has an elegant, classy style rather than the Hobby Lobby bargain bin look of the others, and (like most e-ink gadgets) doesn't need recharging so long as you're happy with the current photo. It's monochrome and comes in two display sizes: 6.7" (800 x 600) for €300 and 9" (1200 x 825) for €400. Both models are matted so the actual frames are the same size, 297 mm x 210 mm (11.7"x 8.3", i.e. A4), and have local storage for 100 pics, uploadable via a built-in web interface.

Today I chanced across a posting from someone who, in 2002, tracked down the maker of the unusual whiskey glass that the replicant-hunter Deckard drinks from in Blade Runner.

The handsome and timely "Go Away" Doormat [Amazon] is made of coconut fibers and described as "environmentally" friendly if not particularly friendly in other respects. As death's hand knocks louder, however, you might want to segue to more assertive messaging with the "Fuck Off" Doormat. [h/t Rusty] READ THE REST
If you're running a website, you want people to visit that website. Presumably. Wild guess. If you're going through the work and cost of operating a website just to dump your thoughts on the web, that's cool. Diary is probably safer, but whatever. Back to the point at hand: If you're operating a website, you… READ THE REST
How do you protect yourself from everybody online trying to get all up in your business? And we aren't just talking about cybercriminals and other malevolent black hats rummaging around the internet either. We also mean all those "legitimate" businesses that use trackers, cookies, and other online tricks to harvest as much usable information from… READ THE REST
Everybody strives for truly unique home decor. That would seem to make a lot of sense, because who wants the same stuff that everybody else has? Of course, unique often translates to handmade, so unless you've got a knack for carpentry or know a great art dealer, unique can be both tough and costly to… READ THE REST
