It has a TV, a record player, and room for half a set of encyclopedias. What more would you need in an entertainment system?
The days of waiting impatiently for the live-giving sun to set so you can crawl in the cage and watch blurry Westerns is over! If only he knew what his son would do, he wouldn’t have agreed to sit for...

My grandparents had something like this minus the television - big tube radio and space for 78s.  Very cool.

Three levels: Platinum Membership ($250,000), Executive Committee Membership ($500,000), and Executive Board Member ($1 million). The main difference seems to be private dinners. Two for Executive Board, one for Executive Committee, and none for the cheapskate Platinum. They all get a lapel pin, though.

Do you use Google Keep? I use it all the time, and I will keep using it until they take it away. 
Google Keep is a free way to save your thoughts on your phone, tablet, or computer. Hang on to every thought and find it right when you need it.

For me Google long ago became more than the sum of its parts. Gmail, Docs/Drive, YouTube, Calendar and, now, Keep... I really don't think of these as separate apps or programs. It's just my Google. And that seamless integration is what I value most. I get a similar experience on the hardware side with my Apple stuff. But once I live in my Chrome browser. And while I haven't been particularly pleased with photos here, sounds like we might see some improvements soon.

This is the longest article I've ever seen at Consumerist. And good, too.
Because nothing gold can stay, AMC's popular Mad Men has reached the final episode of its final, seventh season. Over the course of the show, we've seen pitches for a multitude of companies, brands...

A tiny North American songbird migrates 1,500 miles non-stop over the Atlantic, scientists have discovered, in the longest known oversea journey for any land bird.

It's a three day trip, and they average about 20 miles per hour -- with no rest stop breaks. 
By fitting it with tiny geolocators, scientists have proven that the blackpoll warbler completes the longest known oversea journey for any land bird

I really hope the sample track isn't representative of the album. 
For her new album, out August 7, DeMent set the words of Russian poet Anna Akhmatova to new music. Hear a song from the album now.

Impressive. A bit more processed than other things I've heard from her, but certainly not overdone.

I got my first up-close look at a cell phone tower disguised as a saguaro cactus. They did a good job, and even added fake woodpecker holes. The only thing that made me notice it is that it was much thicker than any saguaro I've seen

Pakistani businessman Parvez Henry Gill says he was sleeping when God crashed into one of his dreams and gave him a job: find a way to protect Christians in Pakistan from violence and abuse. “I want you to do something different,” God told him.

And this is the best idea he could come up with?
The 14-story beacon of hope for Pakistan’s beleaguered Christian community is nearing completion.
