With the rise of smartphones and mobile internet, just about everyone is plugged in to the grid at all times. It makes sense, therefore, that the business and advertising worlds would be all a twitter over the potential power of “viral marketing.” Still, even the most effective electronic marketing campaign can’t grab and hold your […]

Just about every skill, trade, or craft has some sort of competition allowing people to measure themselves against others in their field. No joke—even that tattooed chick who makes your non-fat extra-dry soy latte every day has a chance to compete in the Regional, National, or World Barista Championships held every year.

I’ve never really been keen on fish or aquariums, so I’m not sure what led me to do today’s list of cool fish tanks. But to be honest, now that I’ve seen just how potentially awesome fish tanks can be, I sort of want one. I still won’t get one, of course, because I’m too […]

When the iPod first came out, when it was still cool, those white earbuds were an indispensable facet of its coolness.

A good name is important for any business, but this is especially the case with restaurants. Why? Because the appetite is a tricky thing. It can be stimulated or squashed in an instant by something as simple as a color, word, or idea. One poor word choice, one unintended pun in the name of your […]

My first car was a 1990 Toyota Tercel. Now, I’m not that old—which is to say, I couldn’t drive in 1990—so that car had already been around the block a few times before I got my hands on it. As you might imagine, all the years, bird crap, and Midwestern summers had taken their toll […]

Hey, remember when that guy Harold Camping said the Rapture would happen on May 21, 2011? That was pretty cool. Unfortunately—or fortunately, depending on your perspective—to the best of my knowledge, there was no rapturing or apocalaphying. When asked about this lack of biblical mayhem, Mr. Camping explained that he just missed God’s memo. As […]

Lately it seems the world of facial hair has been dominated by beards and mustaches, what with the rise to prominence of people like San Francisco Giants’ closer Brian Wilson and The Hangover star Zach Galifianakis.
