Saw Cruise, Chumby Death, and Other Stories We Didn't Post

So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.


Chumby Is Dead, Long Live Chumby

That headline is approximately one-half accurate. It's the part where Chumby's dead. The employees are now at Technicolor, and your dreams of a glorified alarm clock are over. Let each of us mourn in his or her own fashion. Or not at all. [The Verge]

W-Shaped Bookshelf Separates Read from Unread and Otherwise Is Kinda Whatever

This bookshelf is fine, just fine. But as long as we're designing things after letters, I'd like to take this opportunity to put in my request for an O-shaped refrigerator and a rocking chair that looks like a lowercase p, physics be damned. Thank you. [Architizer]


I'd Go on This Saw-Themed Cruise If I Got to Be the Creepy Guy

People are going to spend $1,300 of REAL HUMAN MONEY to go on a cruise that is thematically linked to the series of cleverish-body-part-removal films known as Saw I Through XXVI. Do you know how many actual saws you could buy for that kind of money? And also any cruise that's based on a movie other than Speed 2 is worthless, ipso facto. [Collider]


Left Behind is our daily collection of chaff we didn't think was quite good enough to post on its own, and why.
