The Flop Box A bad beginning makes a bad ending 4/14/2014 Peter Saul curated group show @ Zürcher Studio Austin Lee Taylor McKimens Karl Wirsum Judith Hudson Irena Jurek Bento Modular Laptop Concept - Internet Siao The Bento modular laptop concept by designer by René Woo-Ram Lee is a laptop that comes in different parts that can be mixed and match to fit many different users. This allows the users to customize the different modules of a laptop easily without having to go with different devices for different events. Basically the Bento modular laptop concept comes with a case with pre-cut slots that will be able to fit different modules of a portable computer, such as the main display and mix-and-match components such as external batteries, a mobile phone, and a tablet PC. For example, if the user anticipates a long period of usage without being able to charge the Bento laptop, an extra battery can be easily swapped out in place of an external hard drive. Even the keyboard that comes with it has double uses as well. It is a tablet PC on its own where it can also be configured to be a touchscreen keyboard, piano or even a giant trackpad.

This often is due to different social and cultural contexts that have shaped how the word is used. In the novel Shame, Salman Rushdie’s narrator suggests: “To unlock a society, look at its untranslatable words.” Here are 20 words that don’t translate directly into English; what may these words tell us about the societies in which they come from?
pia jane bijkerk The humid air and persistent drizzle last Saturday (actually the Saturday before last… it’s taken me quite some time to compose this post) did not deter us from having an intimate garden party to celebrate Laly’s second birthday. I have not hosted a party since we lived on the houseboat in Amsterdam, so I was feeling a bit daunted about the idea and wondered if I could do it without getting completely overwhelmed and stressed (the main reason why I don’t host parties – dinner ones or otherwise). I worked hard for the two weeks leading up to the event to be really present with my time and to let things go if they weren’t working out the way I intended, or if things happened that stopped me from being able to create exactly what I had envisioned.

25 Handy Words That Simply Don’t Exist In English Approximately 375 million people speak English as their first language, in fact it's the 3rd most commonly spoken language in the world (after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish). Interestingly enough it's the number 1 second language used worldwide - which is why the total number of people who speak English, outnumber those of any other. But whilst it's the most widely spoken language, there's still a few areas it falls down on (strange and bizarre punctuation rules aside). We look at 25 words that simply don't exist in the English language (and yet after reading this list, you'll wish they did!)
