Found this over at Joyce’s

It’s the unofficial music video for “Simple Girl” by Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. (no, that’s not a typo).

I don’t know why exactly, but the fact that the first GSM phone call (made on July 1, 1991 by Finnish Prime Minister Harri Holkeri) was recorded on video seems downright cool.

The GSM revolution kicked off so many things I take for granted today like SMS, SIM cards, 3G, and the capability of daily cellphone use in general. It’s incredible how much cellular technology has progressed since then. What’s next?


This $20 wall outlet multiplier, USB outlet, and surge protector is pretty neat. I’ve seen plenty of these on the market lately but the layout of the outlets on this one seem more thought out. Plus, with a foldable 3-prong back, this outlet was made for travel! I WANT!


SC Johnson has introduced the new Windex Mini, a bottle of Windex that you can buy concentrate refill pouches for to reduce the use of plastics. Despite efforts to encourage Americans to use refill pouches, most have not welcomed the idea kindly but SC Johnson hopes they can change public sentiment on the issue and bring to light how using refill pouches can reduce waste, save the environment, and also be cost-effective (and easy!).

This is pretty amazing. Puma’s Clever Little Shopper shopping bag is made out of cornstarch and thus 100% biodegradable. The video above shows the bag being placed in warm water and completely dissolving into an environmentally-safe dye in about 3 minutes.

You can dissolve the bag like this or bury it in the ground as compost. So cool!

Thanks John!
