The World’s Most Powerful Hashtag
HASH IT OUT

The World’s Most Powerful Hashtag

Tweeting. That’s a thing. Untweeting: that’s... not a thing. Unless you count this Twitter plug-in that’ll let you hashtag the life span of your tweet (say, #3h) and then automatically eradicate it after the time expires. Cold. Deadly. Efficient.

Your New Favorite Virtual Vinyl Shop

Out in LA, there’s this infamous record shop. It’s known for having impromptu concerts from the likes of Ben Harper. And for selling records, as it were.

The Greatest Used-Car Lot Ever
CAR SIGHTED

The Greatest Used-Car Lot Ever

Eric Clapton’s 1969 Ferrari 365 GTC. Rod Stewart’s 1972 Lamborghini Miura. The Ford Capri that won the 2000 London-Sydney Marathon. Not what you’d expect to find at a used-car lot.

A Wooden Case of Your Face
WOOD OF, COULD OF

A Wooden Case of Your Face

And in even more Instagram news: you can now commission a custom maple-wood iPhone case with your own Instagram pictures printed on the back of it. It’s possible thanks to an outdoorsy and tree-loving company in Portland. Right, so... a company in Portland.
