…Garbage can be recycled?

Garbage In Garbage Out

Every year, 63 million tons of recyclables end up in US landfills.

Thankfully, technologies like wind sifters, optical scanners, magnets and electrical currents can help to divert up to 75 percent of that waste stream to recycling, conserving landfill space and cutting down on greenhouse gases.

Check out Wired Magazine’s Garbage In, Garbage Out infograph for a look at how Global Renewables hopes to help us rid our planet of needless waste.

…It’s Things Thursday: Other People’s Love Letters?

Other People’s Love Letters

Other People’s Love Letters is a collection of things you were never meant to see.

Fevered notes scribbled on napkins after first dates.

Titillating text messages.

It’s-not-you-it’s-me relationship-enders.

A heaping helpful of honest missives full of lust, provocation, guilt, and vulnerability-written for a lover’s eyes only.

In the style of PostSecret, Other People’s Love Letters is filled with found messages and lost notes, and provides a look into another life; a behind the scenes glance into another world that is often not unlike your own.

Give it as a gift, or keep it for yourself, but be sure to see what OPLL is all about, because love is a terrible thing to waste.

…Sony and Apple share?

Sony And Apple

Why waste a good idea?

Apparently, Sony (which recently ripped off the bunnies for their latest Bravia ad) felt that Apple’s iPod arrangement was going to be too tough to beat, so they just replaced the Nanos with their own DSC-T2 cameras for their latest press photos.

Don’t feel too bad for Apple though, as they’ve been known to do the same thing from time to time as well.

I guess they should both feel flattered; right?
