Quote of the day

Posted on

From Fergus and the Druid, W.B. Yeats “A wild and foolish labourer is a king, To do, and do, and do, and never dream.” We’re so focused on doing, on completing and accomplishing and advancing that we forget to dream. Heck, many of us forget how to dream! With no dreams, there are no goals, […]

iPhone-esque device – from LG

Posted on

Engadget has a cool piece about LG’s iPhone-esque device. It convinces me that the format developed for the iPhone will be very popular.
