Welcome to Tuesday, May 24, 2011’s Clicks of the Day!
(Note: I forgot Monday’s edition because it all melded into my long weekend lol).
- (Video): Volcanic Eruption in Grimsvotn, Iceland
I love looking at footage/photos of these kinds of crazy earthly and natural eruption/disaster situations. lol, this video reminds me of the Boston Big Picture‘s photo set on the 2008 Chaiten Volcano! So crazy.
- Harold Camping: Judgment Day Did Actually Happen Saturday
Lol. So stupid! I believe in the end of the world coming at the end of 2012, not the end that Camping keeps predicting. :-)
- Five Fun Things To Do With Newspapers, Besides Reading Them
The only reason I still read physical newspapers is because my parent’s have a restaurant and have them for customers so when I stop by I’ll browse a bit – but for the most part all of my news consumption is done online but this was a fun read! Definitely want to do newsprint nails! :)
- Future of Media: Curation, Verification and News as a Process
Great read and also I think that is so awesome that BBC has an actual desk that looks into news/reports/etc. from social media websites. SERIOUSLY. What a great addition to a newsroom!
- Apple Reaches New Milestone: 500,000 iOS Apps
Great milestone and Great infographic! More proof showcasing the world’s love for Apple. hehe.
- Camel Thorn Trees: Stunning Photo Looks Like A Painting
This is stunning I can’t believe this photo is actually a photo!
- Dropbox Users Save 1 Million Files Every 5 Minutes
This is an impressive stat. I have a Dropbox account but I hardly use it… apparently my actions would be in the minority of most Dropbox users, lol.
- Toyota cars to ‘tweet’ their drivers
Haha! If this were for Volkswagens’ I get be getting tweets all the time with my bust-all-the-time beetle. Interesting idea though.
- On This Day: May 23
This is not the On this Day for today but I had seen this on the 23rd and saved it for today because I think it’s so interesting how newspapers used to look. Talk about crammed. I think it’s so cool that the NYTimes logo has stayed the same throughout the years though!
- McDonald’s Canada’s Bell Powered Free Wi-Fi Goes Live Nationwide
I think this is interesting! You don’t even have to buy anything to use the Wi-Fi. Will this be the place to be to fulfill people’s Wi-Fi needs?
- Grammar Pet Peeves: Who, Whom, None Is Or Are?
Good read if you’re nerdy like me!
- Foxconn Blast Could Cost Apple a Half Million iPads
- Joplin, Mo., single deadliest tornado since 1950
So sad. It just seems like its natural disaster after disaster this year. Yet another sign of the end of days…
- 24,583 Hurt Locker pirates to be sued by Voltage Pictures
This is scary (if Canadian piracy laws ever become like America’s). But it’s going to take decades to sift through IP addresses, lol. Still interesting to see companies taking action on this kind of thing…
- PSN breach and restoration to cost $171M, Sony estimates
Not the best year for Sony, lol.
- Women more likely to tough it out at work when sick
I HATE missing school/work because I’m sick. I think I haven’t missed more than 10 days of school throughout my entire kindergarden through post secondary education, lol. If I can tough it out, I will!
Noteworthy Photos Seen on Tumblr and Beyond:
Today’s “Animals with Stuffed Animals” post of the day comes from my very own new kitty THOR! With mini keychain Quatchi. I am sure as time goes on I will be better at making Thor and (stuffed animal) not look so forced together, LOL.
Have your say on some of these Clicks of the Day’s!
