The Rise and Fall of the Fireman’s Pole.
"Once heralded as the time-saving successor to stairs, the fire pole is, after 150 years, sliding toward extinction. In its heyday, the pole revolutionized the way firefighters responded to alarms, accessed their trucks, and, ultimately, saved lives. But fire poles came — and still come — with a caveat: they have the potential to be lethal for those who descend them."
As a kid, I thought it would be cool to have a house with a Fireman’s Pole to get downstairs. After reading this article, not anymore.
Another Xiaomi Shocker.
"Here’s a beautiful photograph of a young girl by Javi Inchusta Gonzalez, posted to Flickr. Note that it was taken with a Nikon D700 SLR, and that its licensing is set to “Copyright, All Rights Reserved”.
Now go back to our old friend, the Xiaomi Mi 3 “Features” page. Scroll down to where they show the Android photo gallery app, and look at the first image, labeled as a shot from the device’s camera roll.”
I don’t have as much of a problem with tech companies copying other companies compared to tech companies ripping off artists who put food on their table with their work.
The Beauty of Japanese Fabrics.
"Interestingly, there’s a bit of history in Japan when it comes to expensive linings. During the Edo period, the Tokugawa shogunate felt threatened by the rising merchant class, so they issued a number of sumptuary edicts that outlawed things such as the wearing of expensive clothes (or, rather, clothes that were considered to be ostentatious displays of wealth and out of line with one’s social class). The wealthy and stylish found ways around the laws, however. For example, it was fashionable for a while to use red fabrics — which were highly coveted and rare at the time — to line clothes. So essentially, you’d have garments that’d look regular and unassuming from the outside, but inside, there’d be a rich and beautiful lining that would take up most of the garment’s cost."
