    Amazon patents gravity just made my day. Poor Newton, he should have had a better lawyer. Personally I blame the apple for the fact he didn’t patent.

    Levenger is a store I’ve looked at, thought I could safely browse and not find anything, and then found out later that I was very very wrong. I bought my first adjustable desk bookstand there and it made life so much easier. (Is it just me or are bookstands still kind of rare finds?)

    My husband is one for unlocking things – announcing it to me as if someone’s going to parachute into our home (so far, not yet). Really, it’s something that should be made easier for everyone, if they need to do it.
