And yet, incredibly, not one credible image of Apple’s new product has yet been published. This one article is a great summary of what we know and when we first knew it. This would make an interesting book if it weren’t such a narrow tech story.

If you’re wondering who Harvey Corman was, check out this sketch with Tim Conway. Every week on the Carol Burnett Show we would wait for one of them to lose it and laugh when they shouldn’t. This is a classic example of why they were so good. Clearly this clip features Conway’s brilliance, but Harvey added a lot to the comedy landscape and the two together were amazing.
This is clever. Linton Weeks of the Washington Post took an early retirement from the paper. In his final published article, he took the opportunity to send a message in code to his readers. When I first heard about this I was expecting something a little more rude or playful, but even though the message is tame, I really like that he made it happen. See if you can find the message (or … spoiler alert … check the first letters of each paragraph.)
I love it when things are re-engineered to have new applications and properties. It can allow for new life experiences in a world where you thought you knew everything. Check this out… wall paper that reveals more to the design depending on the temperature. I also like the calendar that fades as the day ends. Cool creativity.
The fact there is a business around tracking inbound shipments on cargo ships probably shouldn’t be surprising, but somehow it is. It’s also cool that this kind of scrutiny exists. Plus it’s just plain fun to know and that there might be some new iPhones in boxes within boxes within crates sitting in a warehouse somewhere. I would like a new electric computer please!
