This is pretty neat. Google just announced that the city of Detroit, Michigan is now available in 3D.
I was tired of truing my wheels using the brake pads on my bike as a guide and thought it was about time to get a real truing tool. I bought the Feedback Truing Station stand because it didn’t look cheaply constructed and it was actually cheaper than most of the other truing stands that sometimes sell for double the price (or more) for more or less the same thing.
Truing a wheel on it was generally pretty simple. I’ve got several bikes in my apartment and most of the wheels I put on the truing station only needed minor adjustments, but the truing station can pretty much handle the most crooked of wheels . Wheels are mounted on the stand on one side. If you want to check the dishing of your wheel you just have to flip the mounting of your wheel to the other side. The measurement guides were easy to adjust and check and overall, I had no problem going through several wheels in a short amount of time.
If you’re looking for a trustworthy truing station that’s compact and affordable, the Feedback Sports Truing Station is a good one to go by. It can handle many different types of wheels and rims without breaking the bank.
The Book Hook shown above is the perfect solution for a problem you didn’t even know you had. That’s right, you didn’t know keeping a page in a book was such a difficult ordeal did you? Well, now you don’t have to worry because for just about $40 USD (or gentle craftsmanship) you too can rest your pages on a lovely Book Hook which not only keeps your page but also displays your progress through that same book. Space saver? Not at all, but hey, at least it looks nice.
As far as the fashion world is concerned, I much prefer video lookbooks over traditional still-image lookbooks. They’re just more entertaining and the varying degree of their production make it slightly more interesting too. And just so it’s clear, I really like slow-motion videos. [via]
Moviefone has posted a new image from the upcoming Toy Story 3 film which will be out later in 2010. The image shows the full cast in what looks to be the day-care center that they are donated to once Andy leaves for college. Woody looks downright frightened while the other toys are enjoying the silent moment while it lasts.
