The Sticky Part of Stickers

Apple recently unveiled a new ad for their MacBook Air line of laptops. By itself, it’s a great little display of how people make their laptops their own.

Take special …

Big Blue’s Big Bet

Yesterday, Apple and IBM made an announcement that’s since echoed through the enterprise-IT world. By no means was this your standard press release.

Invisible Collisions

I had heard about the fact that modern cars are designed to crumple upon impact.
