What you can do with mass... incredible.
 
Amazon: shipping a package of one or more items "to the destination geographical area without completely specifying the delivery address at time of shipment," with the final destination defined en route.

Anticipatory shipping: http://mashable.com/2014/01/21/amazon-anticipatory-shipping-patent/?utm_cid=mash-com-fb-main-link
Amazon's new shipping algorithm uses data to intuit what you might want and then ships it before you even order.

WordPress has gotten a facelift. 3.8 brings a fresh new look to the entire admin dashboard. Gone are overbearing gradients and dozens of shades of grey — bring on a bigger, bolder, more colorful design!
Find out what's changed with the WordPress 2.8 Update. We call it (the Dashboard Update). And... we like it.

Spent the night/weekend digging deeper into Google's APIs. Anyone a Google API expert? I'd love to ask you some questions...

Finding a hobby you love that is completely different than what you do for pay will make you happier and more balanced.

Ever wondered how your Facebook news feed works?
The average News Feed has around 1,500 possible stories filtered through per day, but only 20% make your feed. What determines which stories you see?

Responsive Web Design is still only a small part of the web, which is very promising. What's the percentage? #RWD  
As you can see, the ratio holds quite well across the different tiers, although it's a bit stronger in the top 1000 websites. Roughly every 9th site is marked as responsive, both on the hotetst sites and the long tail of the web.

The product has been developed by the very same people who have been working on Google TV for the past few years. But it looks like they have learned from their mistakes, and radically simplified the experience.

Been working out at Evolve for about 3 years. Feels like family. Jon runs a great operation with smart, friendly coaches and an encouraging environment.

Best BBQ place ever! We just moved to Fort Collins and were hoping to find good BBQ and we found Moe's, lucky us. In a little over a month we've gone 5 times and have not yet been disappointed. Kid's night is on Tuesdays = BONUS! Black eyed peas, they're great, and they're not on the regular menu. Bummer. :( Overall, GO! Yum+
