It’s Tablet Day!

I have to confess that I’m a total Mac “fanboy” … er girl, so I am totally stoked that Steve Jobs is supposedly unveiling what is being called the most important thing he’s ever done – Yes, today the Mac Tablet is being unveiled (we hope). Apple is holding a product event out in San Francisco starting at 10:00am PT and it is rumored that this will include much anticipated Mac Tablet.  I will definitely be tuning in to the guys at TWIT.tv (I love you Leo) and checking in with MacWorld as the event plays out today.  I’m really interested to see what market they are catering this thing to and where the price point hits. Who’s ready for some shiny, new technology?

Haitian Jack

from Playclothes

As Haiti has now suffered its second major earthquake within a week, aid is needed there more than ever. I know I posted the links for how to give below, but if you’re in the mood to give a little and get a little check out the Signature Jack T-shirt from Playclothes. All proceeds go to Wyclef’s Yele Haiti foundation. You can also purchase Yele Haiti t-shirts and many other products on yele.org that support the relief effort.

HaIti In Need

Unless you’ve been cut off from all news sources this week, you’ve heard about the devastating earth quake that rocked Haiti. I’ve been listening to the Rachel Maddow Show‘s thorough coverage of the situation as it unfolds. People are still trapped, in need of medical attention, without water, food, shelter and electricity. It is a critical situation down there that needs all the help we can give. Check out Rachel Maddow’s comprehensive list of organizations that you can donate to and help the people of Haiti during this time of great need. You can even text to donate to many organizations, including the Red Cross.

Pistilli Roman

from Pentagram

I used to play this game with my college roommate we called “Name that Font.” While watching TV, we’d analyze commercials and show intros, trying to be the first to guess which font was used. Yes, I know I’m a geek. Needless to say, I love typefaces and was so excited when a friend passed me the latest interactive quiz from legendary design firm,  Pentagram. Based on your answers about four personality questions, the font afficionado determines which typeface best represents you. Mine was Pistilli Roman (totally fitting), what’s yours?

Check out the ‘What Type Are You’ test.
