HUG is an app that allows you to send a remote “hug” that people can feel. Dubbed the worlds first emoji you can feel. Doesn’t beat the real thing of course, but I guess if I was halfway around the world my mom would appreciate the gesture, or be freaked out about putting her cell phone against her heart for too long due to cell phone radiation. Either way it’s the thought that counts and fake hugs are better than no hugs at all, I suppose.
Designer and artist Molly McLeod created this collection of wallpapers that serve as a subtle reminder that life is what happens all around us when we’re busy looking down at our cell phones.
Urging you to enjoy the moment instead of taking a picture or look around you instead of down at your phone, these wallpapers give us a gentle nudge away from technology and back towards humanity.
You can download this much needed awesomeness here.

Magic is a text message based service that allows you to get whatever you want on demand with no hassle (as long as it’s not illegal of course!).
Magic has trained operators standing by 24/7 to answer all of your requests. You simply send them a text message, and they’ll get you what you want by ordering what you need from the appropriate service (e.g. DoorDash, Instacart, Postmates, etc.), and dealing with them for you so you just automatically get what you want, like magic…
I’m impressed and I think Houdini would be as well.

If you watched the Super Bowl last night then you probably saw this commercial. It made me laugh and then I was curious. So what was it all about?
Well, Jeff feels the world is filled with too many restless people in need of rest so with the help of Squarespace he made a new mini-site DreamingWithJeff.com and created his sleeping tapes album filled with intriguing sounds, noises and other things to help you get a good night’s rest.
100% of the retail price from each album sold goes directly to No Kid Hungry. So you’ll get a good night’s rest knowing that when you download the album, or pick up the LP or cassette, you’re helping end childhood hunger in America.
Catch some z’s and make a difference. Count me in.
Thanks Jeff and Squarespace!
