[stuff what got stuck in my browsertabs this last week or so]


:flash: zinio – paper is bad. its heavy, it’s cumbersome and it has a tendency to accumulate. plus it kills trees.
zinio might be solution – this app, hidden somewhere on my new iMacs installer dvd, lets me look at magazines on my computer. i quite like it. they even built in an animation simulating the turning of the pages. the only problem is that their claim is not true. “your favorite magazines … now digital”. bring me my favorite magazines, the wireds and de:bugs and mojos, and i am an instant subscriber! just imagine. a wired subscription like this and we non-americans could actually get to read the latest issue within a reasonable latency. ah. heaven.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: what is it about os x that enables me to just sit there, mesmerised, not doing much of anything for hours on end?

NEWSLETTER HEADLINE OF THE WEEK: it’s between “Tits like Christmas balloons in February” [holy moly] and “Plastic surgery is 21st Century haute couture. – Karl Lagerfeld.” [popbitch] and i think holy moly is taking this one away, because it just takes you those extra few seconds to get it…
