Experts' Expert: Digital Photo Storage by Personality Type

Screen Shot 2014-08-21 at 2.51.02 PM

Stephanie Rosenbloom, in a July 22 New York Times "The Getaway" feature, described the pros and cons of nine services dedicated to storing digital photos.

She was kind enough to subdivide people who might wish to use these sites as follows:

• The Perfectionist

• The Fun-Lover

• The Social Butterfly

• The Professional

• The Videographer

• The Essentialist

Calculator with Integrated Ruler

54451

Excellent idea.

54451-1

From the website:

•••••••••••••••••••••

This little silver plastic basic-function calculator measures 3-1/4" x 5-1/2" with a clear plastic ruler that folds down on both sides.

Open it and it looks oddly like a communications satellite.

The ruler is millimeters/centimeters only, up to 320mm or 32cm.

But it's still a lovely straight-edge, or a gift for a Canadian friend.

Runs on a single replaceable button-cell battery, included.

Two for $3.95.
