Timehop — "What were you doing one year ago today?"
Don't know and don't care.
But I can't speak for you which is why I'm putting it out here.
Hmmm... if it's good enough for Mark Frauenfelder maybe I should take another look.

Slobproof! Paint Pen
From The Awesomer: "An ingenious receptacle for household paint. Fill it via the included syringe, then snap its brush head on to vacuum-seal it. Good for small paint jobs or making the most out of leftover paint."
Set of two: $19.99 (paint included).
Attention reader Steven Frisk: This is smack dab in your wheelhouse.

Note added at 1:03 p.m. today: Dreams of an iPhone with integrated printer. Can you imagine?
Note added at 8:07 a.m. Wednesday, August 22: I told my Crack Research Team®™© last night, right before Gray Cat and I headed up to bed for snoozeville and environs, that they were NOT to do as we were doing but instead, stay up and drill down on the question of whether or not this printer will work with the iPhone.
This morning when we came downstairs, all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed (literally), the entire team was asleep, slumped down over their desks and keyboards.
But they left a few notes.
1. The printer will print from an iPhone — if it is first jailbroken.
2. A YouTube video caption: "Since the device can print directly over Bluetooth, I upload my iPhone 4 photo to Dropbox and print it from my Mac. It totally ruins the portability aspect of the printer but if you have any other phone it should work directly over Bluetooth and that is awesome!"
