  • effect So, using this data, the company now shows Mac users costlier options than it does Windows users as a way to boost…

Scumbag move, Orbitz.

This actually defines my life.

Paradoxes of our times

melonpuff:

Today we have bigger houses and smaller families. More conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less common sense. More knowledge, but less judgement.

We have more experts, but more problems. More medicine, but less wellness. We spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get angry too quickly, stay up too late, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We’ve multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too little, and lie too often. We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life, but not life to years.

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less. We buy more, but enjoy it less.

We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet our neighbours. We’ve conquered outer space, but not inner space. We’ve split the atom, but not our prejudice.

We write more, learn less; plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We have higher incomes, but lower morals. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies, but have less communication. We are long on quantity, but short on quality. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men and short characters. 

More leisure and less fun; more kinds of foods, but less nutrition. Two incomes, but more divorces. Fancier houses, but broken homes. 

As of today, don’t keep anything for special occasions, because everyday you live is a special occasion. Search for knowledge. Read more. Admire the view without paying attention to your needs. Spend more time with friends and family. 

Life is a chain of movements of enjoyment and it’s not only about survival. Don’t save your best perfume, use it every time you feel you want it.

Tell your friends and family how much you love them. Don’t delay anything that adds to laughter and joy in your life. Every day, every hour and every minute is special.

You don’t know if it will be your last.

It’s a great place to grow up [Los Angeles] as a creator because there’s no intellectual hierarchy. I remember going to a party in New York about 35 years ago. They all called me Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon. I said, “You, ma’am, your name and phone number? And you, sir, your phone number? And you, sir?” And they said, “Why are you taking our phone numbers?” I said, “Because the night we land on the moon, you’re going to get called.” I was in London when we did. I called three of them, and when they answered I said, “Stupid son of a bitch,” and hung up.

- Ray Bradbury, quoted in Newsweek (November 1998) (via Jesse Lanser)

Electric motorbike-car hybrid uses gyroscopes to stay upright upon collision


Hybrid transportation has been featured on these pages numerous times, most recently in the form of thePAL V-ONE — a ‘flying car’ developed in the Netherlands, mixing automobile and gyrocopter technology. The Lit C-1 is another example, combining the car and motorbike in a compact two-wheeler that features gyroscopes to keep it upright, even upon collision. READ MORE…

With 100 meters to go, Vogel saw McMath ahead of her, and the first-time state qualifier was struggling.
“I was kind of blacking out,” McMath said. “I wasn’t too aware of my surroundings. I was just trying to keep going. When my body gave out, she was there. It was amazing.”
When McMath hit the ground, Vogel decided against running past her and avoiding a last-place finish. She stopped, picked McMath up, put McMath’s arm around her shoulders and half-carried, half-dragged her the last 20 meters.
The stadium erupted at the display of sportsmanship.
