These are the arti­cles, blogs, and resources I found inter­est­ing and wor­thy of shar­ing for 08 October 2010 through 12 October 2010:

  • Apple trade­marks “There’s an app for that” - The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has offi­cial­ly grant­ed Apple a trade­mark for the phrase “There an app for that.” According to TUAW, the trade­mark cov­ers “Retail store ser­vices fea­tur­ing com­put­er soft­ware pro­vid­ed via the Internet and oth­er com­put­er and elec­tron­ic com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works; retail store ser­vices fea­tur­ing com­put­er soft­ware for use on hand­held mobile dig­i­tal elec­tron­ic devices and oth­er con­sumer elec­tron­ics.”
  • Free For All: The Halloween 2010 Edition - Get ready to be fright­ened by this col­lec­tion of free Halloween-themed pho­tos, fonts, sounds, and more.
  • The ori­gins of abc | I love typog­ra­phy, the typog­ra­phy and fonts blog - We see it every day on signs, bill­boards, pack­ag­ing, in books and mag­a­zines; in fact, you are look­ing at it now — the Latin or Roman alpha­bet, the world’s most pro­lif­ic, most wide­spread abc. Typography is a rel­a­tive­ly recent inven­tion, but to unearth the ori­gins of alpha­bets, we will need to trav­el much far­ther back in time, to an era con­tem­po­ra­ne­ous with the emer­gence of (agri­cul­tur­al) civil­i­sa­tion itself.
  • Battlestar Galactica “How To Spot A Cylon” Poster, Sci Fi - Cylon Safety Information Sheet #8, issued by the Colonial Ministry of Information, con­tains 10 tips that can save your life and the lives of your fel­low Colonials.

  • The 55 Most Scandalous Barbie Photos Ever Taken | Content - Barbie is just like any oth­er celebri­ty. Even though she has a per­fect body, per­fect face and the per­fect car, she is any­thing but per­fect. Over the years, Barbie has been pho­tographed doing a lot of scan­dalous things in a lot of scan­dalous posi­tions. I sup­pose it’s the trag­ic result of 43 years of sex­u­al frus­tra­tion caused by hav­ing a homo­sex­u­al boyfriend and no gen­i­talia.
  • Elliott and E.T. - CollegeHumor pic­ture -

    In this inten­sive 2-day webi­nar (6-hours per day) you will learn:

  • Technology Review: Blogs: Mims’s Bits: The Death of the Book has Been Greatly Exaggerated - Tech pun­dits recent­ly moved up the date for the death of the book, to some­time around 2015, inspired large­ly by the rapid adop­tion of the iPad and the suc­cess of Amazon’s Kindle e-reader. But in their rush to chris­ten a new era of media con­sump­tion, have the pun­dits over­reached?
  • Libyan Domain Registry Shares Its Views On The .ly Hoopla, But Questions Remain - In oth­er words, NIC​.ly says it “would pre­fer” see­ing art​.ly used by a local Libyan busi­ness or per­son, but doesn’t say if that means it will effec­tive­ly trans­fer own­er­ship of the domain name at some point in the fore­see­able future.
  • Pixelated, Word Spellcheck Has Me Pixilated – Blog of the Darned - That hap­pened last week. In this case, the word was pix­e­lat­ed, mean­ing being able to see the dots (pix­els) in a com­put­er graph­ic. I looked it up in my trusty Webster’s, and they list­ed pix­el, but not pix­e­lat­ed. Well, at least not that pix­e­lat­ed. Webster’s did list pix­i­lat­ed (spelled with an i after the x), but not as mean­ing being able to see the dots. Pixilated (with an i) is defined as, some­what unbal­anced men­tal­ly.
