Everyone needs an umbrella from time to time. I have at least 4 of them in my coat closet and I live in Los Angeles where it never rains (except for when you vacation here, that’s when it rains every day). And, like most people, I never seem to have an umbrella with me when the weather calls for it. There are all kinds of umbrellas: wear on your head umbrellas, umbrellas for couples, samurai sword umbrellas, umbrellas for your dog, even umbrellas to protect your fancy designer shoes or precious mustache! My favorite kind are the little ones they put in a tiki drink, but that’s neither here nor there. Click on to see some Super Whacky Umbrellas.
Nowadays there are novelty versions of every product you can think of. You know, stuff like clocks that tell the wrong time, a gaudy bedazzled kitchen knife set, that stupid singing fish wall-plaque or bacon flavored, well, everything. And why not have some of that crap lying around? These items are always either of cute, dumb, funny or all of the above. Here you can find Truly Outrageous Novelty USB Hubs that are sure to make you say “LOLWUT?! Who would buy that?!”
It didn’t take long for video game developers to figure out their target audience and cater directly to them with busty, beautiful, drool-worthy womens. But we all know it’s what these ladies have on the inside (polygons, FYI) that counts. Click to see my picks for The Sessiest Ladies of Video Games.
If you’re a Twitter fan and still use the web interface a lot, you may be interested in the new “lists” feature that’s being rolled out across accounts.
The concept is very similar to the sort of contact management you’ll find in many third-party Twitter applications, except with the added feature that you can make lists public, so other people can follow those people all in one go.
For the uninitiated, lists are useful when you have a lot of contacts but would like to separate them into more manageable sets.
Say you follow family members, work colleagues, celebrities, some bloggers, and then others you’ve had some kind of conversation with online. Instead of having to wade through a single feed with everyone’s tweets on, you can select to view just the tweets of a particular group, by putting all of those people in a list.
Lists can be made private, if you don’t want others to see them, or public.
I still think for power Twitter users, using a desktop client for reading and tweeting is the best option, but for keen Twitter users who like the web interface, lists can add just a little bit of clarity to an otherwise cluttered tweet space.
What do you think of Twitter lists?
