With the following headline chosen by the Verge: “Microsoft is killing off the Internet Explorer brand“, you’d think they wouldn’t go on to quote the struggling Goliath as saying:
We’ll continue to have Internet Explorer, but we’ll also have a new browser called Project Spartan, which is codenamed Project Spartan.
Who are the Verge trying to fool? All this means, is that Internet Explorer (and all previous incarnations) will continue to exist. Project Spartan will just be an additional browser, joining us at the bottom of our test suite.
Star Wars fans, and especially those with young Star Wars fans, may enjoy this Millennium Falcon drone in flight. I know me and mine did.
Santana aims for another comeback. As much as I dislike locker rooms, I love this locker room welcoming:
Taped in the upper left hand corner, directly above his blue No. 57 jersey and cap, was a photograph of the celebration from Santana’s no-hitter with the New York Mets in June 2012, arguably the finest moment in his baseball career.

So let me get this straight. I’m not only supposed to read an email’s from address, but I’m supposed to pay special attention to each character?
My father once left himself logged in to Paypal on a library computer, losing all of $30. God knows what he’s been clicking on these days.
Apparently people have been using pinch-to-zoom on their desktop browsers? Which actually may not be that crazy, since those Apple laptops sell pretty well. Not surprisingly, Chrome’s pinch-to-zoom wasn’t as smooth as Safari’s. The latest Chrome Canary aims to fix that.
Also news to me, the Internet Archive has an entire Archived Software Library, which is pretty rad, if you’re into that sort of thing. It looks like now, those archived pieces of software (read: games) are now embeddable. Pretty rad, again, if you’re into that sort of thing. Note: The embedded games seem to have mixed results. But what a concept! Next on their list: Export a game as HTML5. Just kidding.
The popular iOS app, Flipboard, aims to elevate content layout and interaction on the web.
