Fun fact: Trader Joe's is owned by a German company

More like Trader Johann's! "Few customers realize the [Trader Joe's] chain is owned by Germany's ultra-private Albrecht family, the people behind the Aldi Nord supermarket empire." (via Kourosh)

Rod Serling action figure

 Images Review Serling 1 Yes, that is a Rod Serling action figure. Toy collector Michael Crawford, aka Captain Toy, bought an ultra-limited Serling head and commissioned an artist to hand-paint it. The body, clothing, and telltale cigarette once belonged to an infamous X-Files character. You can read the whole story of the Serling figure... in the Twilight Zone. Er, I mean at Crawford's site. Review: Twilight Zone custom sixth scale Rod Serling

Medieval Copy Protection

Medieval Copy Protection

An anonymous reader writes "In medieval times a 'book curse' was often included on the inside cover or on the last leaf of a manuscripts, warning away anyone who might do the book some harm. Here's a particularly pretty one from Yale's Beinecke MS 214: 'In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen. In the one thousand two hundred twenty-ninth year from the incarnation of our Lord, Peter, of all monks the least significant, gave this book to the [Benedictine monastery of the] most blessed martyr, St. Quentin. If anyone should steal it, let him know that on the Day of Judgment the most sainted martyr himself will be the accuser against him before the face of our Lord Jesus Christ.'"

Get a free copy of The Macintosh Way, my first book

  Posted by Guy Kawasaki

The Macintosh Way is the first book that I wrote. It explained the Macintosh philosophy of doing the right things the right way. I recently got the rights back for the book, and I’m making it available for free. My buddies at OfficeDrop took one of the last copies that I owned and turned it into a PDF, and Pixability made this video about the process.

If you’d like the PDF, go to Freemacway.com. You can also get the iPad version from OfficeDrop here.
