Switch Lock — Episode 3: Is free good for you?

Tyuhtjghj

Episode 1 in 2006 featured this technology for $12.95 and Episode 2 six days ago brought it down to $6.99.

In a June 2, 2009 Scavenging blog post entitled "Ten Practical Uses For Your Credit Cards," Anneli Rufus and Kristan Lawson included the one up top, "Light Switch Cover."

Take it one step further and make the opening just large enough to fit over the business end of the switch, but tight enough so it can't move.

Voila — instant switch guard.

Free, the way we like it.

In fact, if you stop using the card, it'll pay you.

Note to file: Forward this post to Mark Frauenfelder over at Make.

Somewhere Philip K. Dick is smiling as he reads 'Time Out Of Joint' on his iPhone Kindle app

1efghfgh

The reason?

2dfghdfhgs

Because the world within our world he foresaw a half-century ago — one where "reality" is simply an ultra-high-speed calculation and rendering in real time of all possibilities and events past, present and future — is now tangible, in the form of pages in a book that magically appear from nowhere as you slide your finger across the iPhone screen.

Look at the screen a second: nothing but the single page there.

Yet all the ones before and those to follow are... where?

5gh

In there?

6vcbnmncbm

Yes— but not that you can see until you swipe your finger.

7bghfj

So where are they in the meantime?

8ghjnbcm

Waiting, that's where.

9ghg

In the form of grist for the calculation mill.

Same as it ever was.
