When was a word first used in print?

2007

Free, the way we like it.

2001

Fair warning: if you're a word person like moi, this could take you down a very entertaining rabbit hole.

bookofjoe's Favorite Thing: Speed Scroll function of Apple Magic Mouse

I'd say I whizz down my bookmarks ±50 times a day.

I just went and had a look and made a rough estimate of how many bookmarks I have: about 1,000.

At 20 bookmarks/screen, that's about 50 screens worth from top to bottom.

Using a conventional Apple mouse is a total pain in the butt, as I have to move the cursor to the far right margin of the window, cause the vertical scroll bar to appear, and then carefully keep the cursor on the bar as I pull it all the way down my bookmarks to get to the latest additions.

With my Magic Mouse (top), it's like being in an alternate, better reality: one finger on the mouse from top to bottom as fast as I can, repeated a few times, and I'm home — no need to look at the screen or mouse, no requirement for accurate placement of anything.

Full disclosure: it takes five swipes to go all the way up or down my 50 screens of bookmarks.

Wood Clutch

From the website:

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Geometric surface design provides necessary flexibility — wood texture is soft to the touch and extremely wear-resilient.

Innovative yet timeless, this handmade clutch will never go out of style.

Features a magnetic clasp and soft underbelly for a comfortable grip.

All wood used is hand selected and individually and meticulously crafted to the highest standard.

Due to the natural grain and tone changes in wood, each clutch will differ slightly and no two will ever be identical. 

Rosewood, African Walnut, American Walnut, Birch, or Emboya.

$1,200.
