After a great amount of thought and deliberation, I have decided to keep only my black hangers, and to dispose of the rest.

you always (i hope) have "a" shirt on, so I don't know why you need an extra hanger. seems like a waste

I think it's a prerequisite that you look like the twins from the Matrix: Reloaded...

The first bit is boring, but the last half has an interesting theory about Apple's possible return to the "premium" or hard-core user space...

Damn, to have known this in college...
Taking notes during class? Topic-focused study? A consistent learning environment? All are exactly opposite of the best strategies for learn...

I know, right? The books I've been reading on neuroscience and psychology I totally changing the way I think, simply by explaining to me how I think... which makes me think that I have a headache.

Hang Drum
I recently stumbled across an instrument called a hang drum (see http://goo.gl/kDZ7e, h/t to +Kimberly Carr and +Tyoshi Sakamoto).

Here's an excerpt from Wikipedia describing the instrument: http://goo.gl/h6NOo.
A Hang (pronounced [haŋ], with vowel sound between those of the words hot and hungry) is a musical instrument in the idiophone class created by PANArt in Switzerland.[1]

The Hang is made from two deep drawn, nitrided steel sheets[2] that are attached together creating the recognizable 'UFO shape'. There is nothing inside the Hang but air. The top ("Ding") side has a center 'note' hammered into it with seven or eight 'tone fields' hammered around it. The bottom ("Gu") is a simpler surface that has a rolled hole in the center with a tuned note that can be created when the rim is struck.

The Hang uses some of the same physical principles as a steelpan but with a nitrided surface and structural change of having two clamped shells with a small opening so that the instrument is a Helmholtz resonator.[1][3] The creation of the Hang was the result of many years of research on the steelpan as well as the study of a diverse collection of instruments from around the world such as gongs, gamelan, ghatam, drums and bells.[4] Metallurgical and acoustic research by the makers has led to significant changes and refinement in structure, design, and process over the years since the first Hang was offered.

The sound produced by the hang is really amazing. Check it out!

Hmmm... if this really works, it would be pretty cool...
Previously mentioned Mac utility Proximity is really handy for performing actions when a Bluetooth connection is made with your Mac and a compatible device.

If Spotify had a direct link to the wikipedia page for every artist, I would basically never leave.
