 PHOTO BY PJPINK, FLICKR   WAY TOO PRETTY NOT TO SHARE, this appropriately-named watercolor-esque image you see above by pjpink is actually a photo, and a beautiful one at that. The colors and the soft (or out-of) focus image features a beautiful, soft color palette of blue, green and a touch of yellow. I haven’t seen a ton of soft-focus photography that I love, but this photo has shown me that in the right photographer’s hands, the effect can be downright stunning.   Click here to...

Travelers, Season 2, Episode 4: “11:27” Recap and Analysis

This Episode is a completely new storyline featuring Congressman Bishop from Season 1.   Full Episode Gallery   The Team Wants to Blow Something Up   The episode starts with Carly picking up a mysterious brown package from a suspicious (but visually non-threatening) young man that she met...

Starbucks Now Carries an $80 Smart Mug: What it is and How It Works

Starbucks Now Carries an $80 Smart Mug: What it is and How It Works

IMAGE: EMBER.COM   What’s a Smart Mug?   LAST YEAR, STARBUCKS BRIEFLY CARRIED THE ORIGINAL $150 EMBER SMART TRAVEL MUG before it rapidly sold out. What’s a Smart Mug, you ask? Well, in the case of the Ember mug, it can keep your drink at a desired (hot) temperature for “approximately two hours”, eliminating the everyday annoyance of your coffee or tea being either too hot or too cold 90% of the time you’re actually drinking it. It will not heat up your beverage if...

Photo of the Day: “Brugge” by olimpia

PHOTO BY OLIMPIA, FLICKR   I DON’T USUALLY LOVE PHOTOS OF STUFF LIKE OLD WINDMILLS, but photographer olimpia did such a great job composing and editing this photograph, that it reminded me of something important: Good photography doesn’t have to be about the subject itself, it can simply be about colors and shapes, pleasingly arranged.   The red white and blue of the windmill really works with the beautiful white clouds and dark blue sky. Red and blue are always a solid...

Starting Today, Starbucks Holiday Drinks Are Half-Priced, if You Time it Right

IMAGE: STARBUCKS.COM   Similar to the Frappuccino Happy Hour promotion that Starbucks runs every summer (which got you half-priced Frappuccinos during specific days and times), Starbucks has started a new BOGO promotion, (beginning today and running through the 13th) for the colder months. This one, unlike Frappuccino Happy Hour, isn’t a simple 50% off deal, instead requiring that you buy two beverages to take advantage of the deal. This is not a problem for many, including me,...

Photo of the Day: “Salt” by Lucas Wade Palmer

PHOTO BY LUCAS WADE PALMER, FLICKR Salt flats (or salt plains) are beautiful in their desolation, and are a great photo op for anyone. This one, by Lucas Wade Palmer, however, stood out to me. The almost-monochrome coloring, soft contrast, and uniformity of the surface make this photo a cut above your average salty photo. It almost looks like an old video-game, in a good way. The subject in the photo is perfectly placed in the frame, and the sky-to-ground ratio really draws the eye in. The...

Photo of the Day: “Andros, Greece” by Chris Goldberg

Photo by chris goldberg, flickr Taking advantage of a beautiful location and a photographer’s eye, Chris Goldberg brings us this beautiful photo taken in, as the title says, Andros, Greece. I really like the shadowed walls framing the super-sunny world as if we are looking through a door open to paradise. Great contrast, and the pink walls and flowers with the blue water and sky is a wonderful color combination I love looking at bright photos from warm locations, like this one, when...
