Leave it up to Reverb to giveaway a vintage Jag.
This isn't just any giveaway. This is a chance to own a piece of history. The sultan of surf, the prince of punk, the new wave warrior. The Fender Jaguar has always had a chip on its shoulder as the shorter, less popular brother of the Fender family. And that's exactly why we love it.

For a memorable, if not entirely relaxing, experience.

Gmail's tabs reduce open rates // Screen is from +MailChimp who analysed open rates after the announcement of the new tabs feature in #gmail 's inbox and saw a measurable drop! http://bit.ly/1c0KeL8 

+Robert Scoble is also blogging about it http://bit.ly/12K5gqy

Of course, there's not much one can do, other than try harder at producing quality #newsletter material ;) Or is there?

Who knew weapons could sound so beautiful. Check out this artist's work that can help eliminate gun violence in Mexico.
As guns from the U.S. pour across the border and fuel violence in Mexico, artist Pedro Reyes uses his work as a peaceful, cathartic form of protest.
