…The Fold wallet keeps it simple?

The Fold

I’m a big fan of minimalist wallets, so when I saw ‘The Fold’ from Leffot, I was instantly in love.

Essentially just a single piece of Horween shell cordovan (or as they affectionately call it, “horse ass leather”), it holds your cash and cards in place with three simple folds.

Available in Rust, Natural and Dark Brown, you can either order the Small size for US Dollars, or the Large size for International Currencies and a credit card or two if you have more worldly travels in mind.

If you think you need more than that, just remember Leffot’s motto: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

…Mozy is safe, simple and secure online backup?


If you’re looking to backup the most important files on your Mac in a safe, simple and secure way, then check out Mozy, a new automatic online backup system.

In addition to being safe, simple and secure, if you can keep your use to less than 2 GB of total space, then Mozy is free, with no setup fees, credit cards, monthly payments or expirations.

Features include:

  • Open/locked file support: Mozy will back up your documents whether they’re open or closed.
  • 128-bit SSL encryption: The same technology used by banks secures your data during the backup process.
  • 448-bit Blowfish encryption: Secures your files while in storage, providing peace of mind that your private data is safe from hackers.
  • Automatic: Schedule the times to back up and MozyHome does the rest.
  • New and changed file detection: MozyHome finds and saves the smallest changes.
  • Backs up Outlook files: Disaster-proof email protection.
  • Block-level incremental backup: After the initial backup, MozyHome only backs up files that have been added or changed, making subsequent backups lightning fast.

As someone who has lost important files before, I can’t help but sing the praises of a backup solution. Plus, with an online backup solution like Mozy, your files are stored in a safe, external location, keeping them safe even if your computer ever happens to be in a fire or other natural disaster.


…USPS is impressive?


Mail is a magical thing.

You handwrite an address on an envelope and attach a stamp to the outside, and a few days later your letter arrives exactly where it’s supposed to be.

So how does the USPS manage to handle 703 million pieces of mail per day?

Good Magazine has put together an impressive graphic representation of a comparison between FedEx, UPS, DHL and the USPS, and the numbers are staggering:

    700,000 employees, $73 billion revenue, 37,000 post offices, and 216,000 vehicles, all to deliver you your bills, Netflix, and credit card offers.

Rain, sleet or snow indeed.
