Paypal You Suck – “If We Suck … We Now Face It”

David Marcus Paypal President March 2012PayPal President David Marcus responded to mounting criticism from customers by promising that things are changing at the online payments company.

Marcus’s response was prompted by a blog post written by a customer earlier in the week, who was outraged after funds were frozen in his account.

I’ll be honest – I don’t understand reddit – but I understand it a bit more than pinterest. However, the value of either of these services is questionable to me. I had begun sharing links on reddit, but I am greeted with a captcha to solve everytime. Since I am saving to several sites every-time I add an article, that’s just a pain.

A Book That Shows Every Color Imaginable

Color Space Color BookRegardless if you are a designer or not, having all the existing colors bound in your bookshelf would look quite impressive. A New York-based artist Tauba Auerbach presented a 8 x 8 x 8-inch cube book, that contains the complete RGB color scheme page by page.

The binding of the cube was designed by the author herself in collaboration with Daniel E. Kelm. The book with the digital offset prints and an airbrushed cloth cover makes a beautiful 3D reference of the whole pallet of colors in existence.
