Mid-Century Home Tour


I imagine you've either seen these guys, or already read them religiously:
Hep Cat Restorations. I've been looking through the site briefly and there's some incredible stuff, and video tours of the house and everything. While I really dig it, this is what would happen if you just went nuts and bought every single awesome thing ever. It would just look like a furniture store at the end, which in our house can't work.

I think a lot of that probably just has to do with them being professionals, so you're just going to have a ton of stuff hanging around.

If you look at the shop you just might cry.

I love Muji office supplies, because they are well-designed, high-quality, and low-priced. The Low Center of Gravity Mechanical Pencil ($8) is no exception. The low center of gravity feels surprisingly good!

BlackBerry Says Its New Android Smartphone DTEK 50 Is the 'World's Most Secure'

By manishs

BlackBerry, which once assumed the tentpole position in the mobile market, announced on Tuesday the BlackBerry DTEK 50, its second smartphone powered by Google's Android operating system. The Canadean company is marketing the DTEK as the 'world's most secure' phone. It is priced at $300, and will go on sale in select markets on August 8. The Verge adds:The DTEK50 has a 5.2-inch, 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, 3GB RAM, 13-megapixel camera, and 2,610mAh battery. The 8-megapixel front camera also includes a flash for taking selfies. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with BlackBerry's software features, such as the Hub. The software is similar to the software on the Priv released last year. The security features are highlighted right in the device's name, as it has BlackBerry's DTEK software that protects users from malware and other security problems often seen on Android smartphones. The DTEK app lets users quickly get an overview of their device's security and take action on any potential issues. BlackBerry says that it has modified Android with its own technology originally developed for the BB10 platform to make it more secure. The company is also committing to rapid updates to deliver security patches shortly after they are released.
