I'm going to turn 28 this year, and I've noticed a trend when it comes to meeting people as I get older. It's become a lot tougher to meet people and hang out with them outside the workplace or school setting. [more inside]
a few months ago someone I follow tweeted a link to a website that curates and displays only the latest news headlines and top stories. I found this thread (http://ask.metafilter.com/192456/A-better-newspaper) on MF but the site is not listed there. This is a fairly new and probably still obscure site, but I loved the look of it and would like to find it again and seemed to have lost the bookmark. I cannot find it on google because the search terms are so generic. This was an extremely CLEAN site, black on white (i believe) with attractive type, no (or very few/discreet) ads, and nothing fancy going on in terms of media or anything like that. Similar to "theweek.com" in terms of content but nowhere near as busy visually. any help would be appreciated.
Suggestions for ultra-practical upgrades to this life? I received a ~$5,000 windfall with some hefty strings attached, the main of which is that I must spend it within 60 days. Another kicker: whatever money I don't use before the deadline goes to a cause I'm ethically opposed to. I'm a single mom who, right now, would rather buy makes-life-easier/peace-of-mind type things, not silk sheets or espresso makers. [more inside]

I am looking for examples of online history archives that allow users to tag, annotate, and otherwise attach information to items in the collection. I know about Footnote.com where users may add annotations, dates, names, and searchable text to documents. I know about the Flickr Library of Congress photostream. What other examples should I know about before my institution embarks on a similar project? [more inside]

I just downloaded a whole mess of cool apps for my ipod touch, but can't play any of them without the iphone 2.0 software. Where do I download it from??? I can't find it anywhere on the apple.com site, or anywhere else on the net for that matter....
I'm trying to locate a couple of case studies that speak to old school traditional marketing versus the benefits of new media and integrated marketing campaigns ... especially online marketing. Googling has left me wanting, does anyone know of any such case studies available online?
My admittedly ancient Dell laptop has 2 USB ports, which are both version 1.1. Everything I plug in these days triggers a Windows box that says 'Hey! this will go much faster if you have a USB 2.0 connection'. Gee, thanks, Windows. How do I accomplish this? Is this a software or a hardware upgrade? Is it even possible on a 2002 laptop?
Help me pick the best business producitivity management tool(s) for my consulting practice! (Not Daylite)
Hello MeFi peoples, I am trying to find the tool or tools to run my sustainable business consulting practice, which I started in August, and I've been going a bit nuts with too many choices. I've been looking all over, and am getting near hits, but all "not quite there"s. Highrise sort of works, but has some quirks that that it doesn't hit the mark, and it's missing some of what I want to do. Daylite looks interesting, but no...well I'll explain below. Basecamp, same thing. Copper, ditto. Help me find the needle(s) in the haystack! [more inside]

I just bought an Apple 20 inch Cinema display (to use with my PC) but, to be honest I dont like the Silver frame around the stunning screen. What is the best way - safest - cleanest - fastest - cheapest - to transform the silver into black - and the white on the sides --- into black ... plastic coating? Magic marker (haha) paint? Snap on something? [more inside]
