The "N" key on my MacBook Pro is chipped again....

Am I the only person having this problem? The "N" key on the keyboard to my MacBook Pro is chipped again. I may type a lot, but I've owned countless keyboards and never had to replace keys due to regular usage.

Something's wrong with the material used to make keys on the MacBook Pro.

I've seen the future, and its comic books

Yesterday, I had a meeting with a marketing company that was looking for fresh ideas for their Web Campaigns. During our conversation, we talked about the best way to explain a concept to one of their clients. Eventually, we all agreed that whatever it was, it had to be simple and non-technical. "Stick Figures" was suggested. And that reminded me of these great videos I came across a few months ago from Common Craft.

Here's one of their many videos which explains various concepts using simple paper cut-outs. This one explains Social Bookmarking. (That's Delicioius, and if you're not using Delicous, you should be!).

Google has also headed in the direction of comic-books with an introduction to their new web browser Chrome. The sample page from the Chrome booklet below describes the concept of single vs. multi-threaded.

Why can't everything be this fun and simple?
