  • Some photos of newly-discovered species. I was about to say that I liked the “slug-sucking snake” the best, but then I saw the “glass frog.” You can see its innards through its transparent skin!
  • Yesterday’s Ads Predicted Today’s Tech: The ads themselves are pretty cool, and the snarky comments are even better. I like Flash Gordon as the usher in the 3-D movie theater! Also, here’s The 25 Funniest Vintage Tech Ads. The comment on the Apple ad just kills me.
