Quick trick

If you have a mouse with a scrolling wheel which is at the same time a third mouse button, you can use it to open links in a new tab without having to do it the other way (right click then select open in a new tab), just click middle button and voila ;)

My favorite Google logo

Google put this one in their front page to celebrate Lego's 50th anniversary last year.

Reading books redefined

I herd about the Kindle reader a year ago, but since it was exclusive to costumers in the US, people around the world never got to know the technology behind it better, and I am one of them.
I recently started researching Eink and Epaper(the future of reading) and found this bran new eReader by a company called PlasticLogic, the design is totally slick (tops the new kindle DX in my books), this thing is so thin and light and it has a touch screen built in, the good part is that it might be released world wide, although the possibilities that I might get one are pretty narrow(because of my location), just looking at this piece of innovation makes my day, i can't wait for the release so i can read reviews ;)
