Top 10 Best Office Chairs for Maximum Comfort

In 2012, a study found that we spend an average of 64 hours every week sitting on our gluteus maximus, the back to our fronts, more commonly known as our butt. That works out to about nine hours a day. That’s for an average person. If you work from home, it is likely going to be a much higher average number per day, depending on the day. While too much sitting every day can lead to health problems such as weight gain, poor blood circulation, and even diabetes having an occupation where sitting i...

Paris: A list of free and discounted museums

Paris is so saturated with museums, monuments and historical landmarks that it’s difficult to know where to begin planning.

For those looking to save some euros, one place to begin your research is by looking at Paris’ free museums and attractions (or those with reduced admission). It is possible, after all, to take in a lot of the city’s culture without forking over to...

10 Best Serif Fonts for Clean & Elegant Logo Design

For many designers, when it comes to designing a clean and elegant logo for a company, using a Serif font in their designs helps to add a little bit of flair & sophistication to the brand.

Doing a search for Serif fonts can lead you down the proverbial rabbit hole with all of the options there are to choose from. To offer a bit of help, we wanted to focus on ten of our favorite Serif fonts y...

10 Best Tablets for Graphic Design, Drawing & Art 2018

Tailfin Smashes Kickstarter Goal (Again) With Launch of Aeropack 

The last time we heard from British bike-rack makers back in 2016 we were in two minds as to whether their super light-weight, easy-fit, carbon-frame pannier system was an ingenious innovation or an answer to a problem that shouldn't need solving—should we really be carrying luggage on lightweight bikes not really designed for the task? Fast-forward just over two years and it seems that the Bristol-based brand have proved their concept with a successful Kickstarter campaign, numerous 5-star revi...

How the Eames Lounge Chair is Made

This video is unfortunately peppered with MarketingSpeak--in particular you can skip the first two minutes and 30 seconds--but it does provide a great look at how the Eames Lounge Chair is made. We urge you to ignore the poorly-written narration, as they say things like "the manufacturing process hasn't changed much in fifty years," then they show you a drag-knife-wielding CNC cutter that I'm pretty sure the Eameses didn't have access to. Okay, I'll stop complaining. And I'll ...

How to Design Living Hinges

If you've worked with consumer electronics, you'll have come across living hinges. They are found in a wide variety of components – clamshell packaging, attached bottle caps, and electronic cases, just to name a few.They are low cost, easy to manufacture, and have little wear or friction involved in operation — understandably a popular choice! The idea is about as simple as you can get: a thin, flexible section of the same material used to build connecting parts of your product. But while the id...

Exit Lines: Haunted

Andrew Lloyd Webber couldn’t get arrested on Broadway after Sunset Boulevard closed in 1997, as the era of glitzy British imports that floated the main stem in the 80s wound down. Twenty years later, it’s LloydWebberWorld again, as a revival of his last (and more modest) hit joins Phantom, Cats, and School of Rock as if Chicago, The Lion King, and Hamilton had never happened, besting his record of three shows running simultaneously on Broadway in his heyday. Coming back–err, “returning” with him...

New shaver offers the best of electric and traditional

I really like the shaver I spoke of in a past review the Panasonic but I have another shaver that I think you will love. It is called the Phillips Norelco OneBlade. I received this today from Amazon and it only cost $34! So I should say that I have tried many different brands and types of shavers and I think for the price, this OneBlade can’t be beat. The benefits start with the ease of use. One of the disadvantages of electric shavers is that they tend to take more time than traditional razors....

If you work in a company and are switching to Office 365 using Airwatch or Mobile Iron can make the process easier. How?

Immigration reduces crime study finds

Immigration reduces crime study finds. Why share this? Some people believe that immigration causes crime. In fact it does the opposite and reduces certain types of crime. What is the data that supports this? From the article itself: The authors drew a sample of 200 metropolitan areas as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau and used census data and uniform crime reporting data from the Federal Bureau of Investigation for a 40-year period from 1970 to 2010. Compare this to what is said here. “When Me...

Is the future just technological?

I hope the future isn’t just technology. It would be such a boring place. I like Star Trek and all the progress and science that it represents. I like the fact that one day we will have incredible technologies that seem improbable now. I like the fact that we are slowly increasing our understanding of the universe and growing as species. However even with all the wonderful things that science and technology bring us, it clearly isn’t the answer. We grow more capable and energy efficient, but tha...

LinkedIn changes less user friendly

I was given access to the LinkedIn new interface and I think the changes are less user-friendly. I can understand why they would want to change the interface. The website looked stuffy and dated, and it wasn’t modern. The new website looks more modern, but it also looks generic like Facebook or twitter. I don’t think that having very similar interfaces help brand things for customer’s mind. For example, when you ask someone to connect to you a pop up window comes up and obscures the next person...

Del La Soul – Me, Myself & I

Some videos are just classic, and this is one of them. Lets ignore the obvious skill and talent for a moment. What this album did at the time was say it was ok to be different, and different in the most hostile setting for being unique-a high school. It gave hope to anyone who was different, that different was not only ok but to be celebrated. One of the best parts of music and culture is that it can reflect the experiences that we have. I have always appreciated culture because it shows the exp...
