But who uses a pen anymore?

Scribble Pen
I came across this nifty little piece of frivolous consumerism the other day and thought it would be about the coolest thing in the history of man to own… about 15 years ago.

The Scribble Pen ($150) is capable of producing virtually any color ink on the fly. It features a color sensor on one end of the pen which you use to ‘scan’ something to choose the color you want to write with, then it mixes the ink in the barrel of the pen to do it. Pretty cool. If only I had it way back in the day when I actually used pens to, you know, write something.

I can’t remember the last time I wrote something by hand beyond signing the back of a check or a quick sticky note. Who uses a pen anymore?

Sleeping in

Wife and son out of town… I slept-in today. Until 8 a.m. Now I feel like half the day is gone.

Delete your Facebook? Hmmmm.

I love Facebook, but I’m under no illusion that Facebook has my best interest in mind. This video tells us what Facebook does in a fairly humorous way.

For designers and Mac geeks

Everyone who knows me is well aware of what a geek I am, particularly about Macintosh computers and design software. I’ve been running a site that caters to like-minded people for nearly a dozen years called The Graphic Mac. If you use Apple product, or you’re looking for design resources and commentary, check it out.
