I think it'd be handy to have something like if only to try to reduce wear on an existing handle, and potentially distribute weight more evenly. The time requirement to make this is a bit hefty, but might be worth it. #
An all-in-one place to see everything you use/store on Google. Daunting for someone like me. #
A handy little tool that gets colors in formats that geeks work with. Sign me up. #

For the audiophile and Beatles fan in you, Andy Baio found some analysis of the original multi-track master recordings. Very interesting to hear the various pieces. I'd love to hear more of this. If anything, download the track for Come Together, because you know you know that song. #
