James Van Der Beek on Dawson's Creek and 1998 -- Vulture - 0 views

  •  
    Just for fun, a story about James Van der Beek guy who was on "Dawson's Creek," which was *THE* hot show in 1998, and some of the differences between being famous then and being famous now. On the one hand, you're more exposed now (thanks, iPhone); on the other hand, there are more ways to make pieces of 'the real you' public: " At least on Twitter, I put out some bits of my sense of humor. Whereas in '98, when I was being mobbed by girls, they were just looking to go crazy about anything and could use the excuse, you know, to scream and go mad."

    Just FYI, I myself have never seen Dawson's Creek, but I remember when it was big, and I know someone who's rewatching all the episodes on Netflix now and live-tweeting them.

Coin » Use One Coin for All of Your Cards - 0 views

  •  
    Sorry if this double-posts, I had to switch windows.

    So this is less "internet" and more "tech innovation", but it was so cool I just had to share it.

    This company has developed a piece of hardware (shaped exactly like a credit card), that can actually be swiped in credit card machines, that holds all of your personal credit, debit, and gift card information. You switch between cards using a button on the device, you add them to the card via a phone app and an attached card swiper, and as it's linked to your phone, it'll alert you if you get too far away from the card (in the case of leaving it on a table and walking away, or forgetting your wallet on the way out of the house, for example).
