Slidenjoy - Double or triple your screens(?!) // This crazy looking Kickstarter project (already reached a $300,000 target) allows you to easily add one to two extra screens to your desktop. Like a magnet, you can attach it to the back of your laptop and enjoy a full panoramic display and share content through the 180°rotation.
The "two more screens" mode sounds interesting. The "sharing content" one looks silly and dysfunctional though... :)

No, it's not your opinion. You're just wrong
//
I have had so many conversations or email exchanges with students in the last few years wherein I anger them by indicating that simply saying, "This is my opinion" does not preclude a connected statement from being dead wrong. It still baffles me that some feel those four words somehow give them carte blanche to spout batshit oratory or prose. And it really scares me that some of those students think education that challenges their ideas is equivalent to an attack on their beliefs." - Mick Cullen

Are you blogging and on Facebook? Read this :) 
Authorship markup for sites used to be an exciting term back when Google was using it in the search results but has since faded back as Google decided that it's not for everyone. Now it may make a come back as Facebook is now using it to help you get more followers and at the same time get you to add yet another Facebook URL in your code. This is done through the article:author meta tag. When y

Shock! Horror! Google tax aimed to benefit Spanish publishers turns out a disaster // Who would have thought that trying to tax Google for... linking (and basically free advertising) to news sites via Google News would not end up good for it's proponents, the Spanish association of publishers. Well, pretty much everyone on the internet except from Spanish publishers and law makers. 

The law, passed last October, allows charges to news aggregators like Google for showing snippets and linking to news stories. In response, Google shut down Google News in Spain. Smaller local news aggregators also shut down as their business model was ruined. And according to a study commissioned by the Spanish publishers themselves, traffic to Spanish news sites has fallen 8-14% with a loss of €10 million.

Described in Judd Apatow’s recent book, Sick in the Head, Jerry Seinfield's solution for relaxing during a stressful period: look at photos of space taken by the Hubble Space Telescope to remind him how insignificant everything can be perceived. That would calm me when I would start to think that this was important... I’ve often said this and people say, ‘It makes me feel insignificant.â€
