Kobo Forma case

I recently purchased a new Leather case for my Forma from a company on Etsy called Hand and Hide. I had good experiences with their cases on both my iPad Mini and my Kindle Oasis. Their cases are expensive, but in my opinion you get what you pay for. This is the kind of leather that requires break-in and gains character with age. For me a glass of wine and a weathered leather cover add to the reading experience. Any way, they had never made a Forma cover, but took on the challenge. I was given ...

Modernizing Bifold Closet Doors

When we moved into our new home, the first space I wanted to make my own was the kitchen. Let me show you a quick before photo so you can get a sense of what we had to work with … As you can see here, beside our kitchen there is a set of bifold doors (actually two sets) that cover our pantry and laundry closet. My goal was to modernize these doors, while also tying them in with the rest of the kitchen, so it felt like one large space and flowed together better. We used this hardware from Etsy in...

How The FBI Identified That Masked Arsonist Identified and Jailed Because of Her Etsy Review

An anonymous reader quotes Ars Technica: To some extent, every Internet user leaves a digital trail. So when a masked arsonist was seen on video setting fire to a police car on the day of a recent protest in Philadelphia, the fact that her face was hidden didn't prevent a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent from tracking down the suspect. The keys ended up being a tattoo and an Etsy review the alleged arsonist had left for a T-shirt she was wearing at the scene of the crime, according to the F...

Covid-19 Masks Aren’t a Political Statement

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- AMC Entertainment Inc., the largest cinema operator in the U.S. and Europe, initially decided that it wouldn’t require guests to wear masks at its theaters when they reopen, and for an especially troubling reason: “We did not want to be drawn into a political controversy,” CEO Adam Aron said in an interview this week with Variety. But wearing a mask isn’t a political statement, and it’s dangerous for corporate brands to suggest it is.AMC reversed course on Friday afternoon...
