A lot of us use emoticons in our communications these days, a crown, bishop, or skull is way more fun than a ☺. That’s why fashion editor Alexandra Suhner Isenberg is obsessed with CopyPasteCharacter.com: they’ve got all sorts of fun ic❄ns you can stick into your emails, although I don’t suggest sending them to your boss. Unless you are ♘☠✏☂ off!
Calgary editor Jaelyn Molyneux likes to peep into the closets of the rich and stylish and read the stories behind how they came to own such covetable items.
I don’t know if people were actually cooler back in the day or if black-and-white photos just make them look that way, but I can’t get enough of the attitude on The Impossible Cool. theimpossiblecool.
tumblr.com says lifestyle editor Kelsey Dundon. While beauty editor Anya Georgijevic chimes in agreement, "this Tumblr has Françoise Hardy rubbing elbows with Mark Twain. I could scroll for hours."

They say you shouldn’t match your makeup to your getup, but coordinating your laptop to your nail lacquer is quite all right.
Now when you order a Dell personal computer have it custom covered in an OPI polish. Head to their design studio and choose from one of seven laptop models and 32 shades, like the taupe “You Don’t Know Jacques!” (one of our favourites), or the sparkly scarlet “Dear Santa,” which would be an all too perfect prezzie to leave under the tree.
If Carrie Bradshaw weren’t a Mac girl, she’d have her hands all over this.

When we first heard about Free Geek, we wondered if it was some kind of super nerdy dating service, as in, “yes, I’m free tonight, right after my Dungeons and Dragons convention.”
Lucky for us, Free Geek turned out to be a computer recycling and rebuilding centre that is happy to take your out-of-date technology.
Unload that dot matrix printer, that cell-o-saurus that’s been long since replaced with an iPhone, or even a massive office server, knowing it will be rebuilt, disassembled for its useful components, or recycled safely.
Now if they would only take out-of-date boyfriends.
