…You don’t have to be homeless to look like you are?

Le Clochard Quilt Cover

Always dreamed of living on the streets, but can’t stand the cold?

Then check out SZN’s Le Clochard Quilt Cover, a quilt cover and pillowcase set that looks like it’s made from taped together cardboard boxes.

In addition, “The income is used to fund housing projects which prioritize supporting young people in finding work or continuing their education.” so your purchase price goes to a good cause.

…iPhone Apps = Apple Games?

iPhone Doom

Food for thought: Despite the fervor surrounding Apple’s announcement today, and the thousands of rumors that have surfaced as a result, the biggest change to the iPhone is going to be an already announced feature: Apps.

Many of these apps are going to be games, and so far, it looks like many of the major game manufactures are on-board and developing for the new platform, which got me thinking; could these partnerships develop into full gaming support for Apple’s full-sized computers as well?

Gaming has long been a missing aspect of the Mac experience, but a few key converts could change all that, meaning the iPhone Apps could be a door for Apple to use to enter the lucrative gaming market that it needs if it’s going to continue its growth and market share acquisition.

Makes you wonder…

…DYH is naked?

CSS Naked Day

Today is CSS Naked Day, and in support, I’ve stripped off all of the CSS styling from this site to give you a glimpse at what it would be like to view DYH in the nude.

CSS Naked Day was designed to promote Web Standards, including the proper use of “(x)html, semantic markup, a good hierarchy structure, and of course, a good ‘ol play on words”.

Worry not, however, as DYH will be fully covered up by this time tomorrow.

Until then though, be sure to appreciate my <body>.
