Unioncy – do you have a problem losing your product receipts and manuals?

For most of us the real excitement comes when you open the packaging for your long awaited product, the famous unboxing. Getting it out, fondling the bits, doing assembly, they’re all important parts of the ritual. But the things that usually get lost in the excitement is the user manual, the warranty slip and the receipt.

LifeGuard Earthquake Proof Desk – just in case, y’know, the roof falls in

We can’t imagine what it must be like to live in a place where you need to worry whether the floor is going to disappear from under your feet, or there’s going to be a ton of building falling on top of you at any moment. We guess you tend to forget about the possibility after a while, and just get on with things.

Thrive One Year Food Pack – 9687 servings, enough for 1 person for 1 year, $0.16 c per serving

We’re trying hard not to get a little paranoid here, but should we be worried that some major retailers, both on and offline, are now openly stocking what they’re calling emergency food storage products? Yes yes, we know that emergencies happen all the time, but when you start pushing them in larger packs, that could be worrying.

Nereus lost – meanwhile, somewhere at the bottom of the ocean, these little fish are chuckling…

There are times, every so often, when we look at this world and marvel at how things work. Take for example this report from last week, which demonstrates how precariously we perch on this little bit of rock, when compared to some of our other fellow inhabitants.

MakeSpace – watch out eBay and Craigslist, cloud closets are coming to get you!

You can always tell when a new service is being hyped up as a billion dollar possibility, because you start seeing a lot of fancy comparisons. Like ‘the reverse Amazon‘ or ‘the Uber for x‘. This is VC short speak for ‘we’ve dumped a ton of money into this venture because we believe it’s going to be incredibly disruptive and change the world. Maybe.’ The PR trick is to associate the new venture with a massive veteran success story, as…

We all have to make decisions, right? Some are important (like does this shirt make me look fat?) and some not so much. After all who cares if you run for president. Really. And we each have our own way of making the big choices in life, using a pin, a lucky Shamrock, asking the lady down the post office. counter. But now there’s a pretty cool alternative.

Is the independent web starting to fight back against the giant corporate networks?

We stumbled across an interesting article by Matthew Ingram the other day, lamenting the loss of the old ‘blogosphere‘. What made it especially poignant was the fact that it was posted on one of the prime examples of the new corporatized ‘blog’, Gigaom, which many years ago transitioned from small and friendly to big and rich. It’s progress.

TVStreamCMS – set up your own streaming movie and TV shows site for just $199…and profit?

Watching the entertainment industry struggle with the brutal reality of the modern digital world is rather like watching an ultra slow motion car crash, and it also seems strangely reminiscent of the the way the original motion picture industry fought the Edison movie monopoly back in the early 1900s. Rebels fighting a dominant group of self-serving business interests. What goes around comes around as they say, eh?

Just Reach Out – forget PR agencies, all you need is this tool. Apparently…

We love it when new startups make big bold statements, because it’s so much fun watching them try to live up to them over the subsequent weeks and months. So it is with Just Reach Out, a new online service which apparently believes it can completely replace PR firms with a single Reach Out box.
