Wonders of the Web Wednesday

The web is full of wonderful things just waiting to be discovered. Here are somethings I have come across that I want to share with you. 
  • Google recently released the first version of Google Wallet - an app that turns your phone into your wallet.  It stores virtual versions of a user’s payment cards and allows users to tap, pay and save with their phone.  The app is now available on a Sprint phone. ** Even though it is cool to think this technology exists, I personally think this is asking for identity fraud and will be keeping my personal wallet, thank you. Some places, you just need to use cash and I know I keep other things other than just payment methods in my wallet. **  On that note, Check out Google’s “first customer.”  Clever!
  • Breaking Up With Facebook by Abby at A Geek Tragedy.  She did it, she actually ended her relationship with Facebook.  Not only does she get you to consider ending your own relationship with Facebook, she will walk you through how too.
  • In Memoriam: Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple died on October 5, 2011.  While I did not know him personally, I, along with many others was deeply moved and motivated by his genius, inspirational words and innovations.   I want to share with you a wonderful post of his quotes that Elysa at GenPink put together in his memory: Words of Wisdom from Steve Jobs: “Don’t waste time living someone else’s life”

Happy Hump Day! Since Wednesday is smack dab in the middle of the work week, people often need a pick me up to help them get through the rest of the week.  So here are a few links that I want to share with you.  Hope they make you smile too! 
                                                                               {via}
  • Everything is Amazing and Nobody’s Happy: This is a clip from when Louis C.K. was a guest on Conan.  Our generation takes everything for granted and sometimes we need this reminder to step back and appreciate all that we have.
  • Trojan sex census - Interesting study done by Trojan.  Sidenote:  If Chicago is the “least satisfied” why are Boston’s and San Francisco’s percentage lower? Fact check?
And two of my favorite blogger posts this week:
  • The thing about girls by Terra.  She is a terrific writer and this is an honest post.  I relate to a lot of what she writes about.  If you don’t read her blog already, I suggest you check it out.
  • Life is Such a Weird Little Playground by Amber Just like Louis C.K. reminding us not to take things for granted, Amber reminds us that we are given only one body.  And while it can do so much, sometimes we just need to stop and blow bubbles occasionally.

Northern Lights: I have always dreamed of seeing this in person. Ever wonder what causes it? If you geek out about astronomy like me – this is really fascinating and beautiful.

NFL lockout video: Ever see the movie Field Of Dreams? Watch this funny video featuring Taylor Lautner and NFL players mock the current NFL lockout situation.

10 commonly misused words in the English languageThe grammar dork in me loves this. Did you get all of them correct?

Dogs surfboardingneed I really say more?

The Great Debate as seen on Shatterbox:  Awesome illustration. Do you prefer over or under?

Happy Hump Day!
