Browser Startpages are Back!

Never underestimate the brilliance of Philipp Antoni (@PhilippAntoni), I’m told. Creatively arranging pixels for huge companies, Antoni has been producing beautiful free artwork for everyone to use. This time however, and I don’t know when this was released, it’s a super awesome searchpage. Gone is all the clutter, and in comes the ultra minimal Google search page. But it’d be silly if that was it. The entire page is interactive with a good amount of Ajax thrown in. Just hover...

OhLife — Stupendously Easy Life Journaling

What’s the one thing you don’t have to force yourself to check every day? Email. Everyone checks their email. It’s not something you have to go to, it’s there. One of the problems with a lot of ‘apps’, is that you have to launch them and interact with them to make it something of a habit.
