  • I stumbled scross this phonecam photo of old Japanese toys on the weblog of Steven from Panic Software (the anti-startup from two days ago). The yellow-bodied character on the right is called Gaiking, and like its companion is one of the "Shogun Warriors," a toy made in 1978 by Bandai, and distributed in North America by Mattel. Its right fist shoots off, and the, er, nipples are missiles too. How do I know? I have one—with the original box. My daughters (who call the toy "Croissant Head") are fond of using the flying fist to nail me in the leg.

  • The New York Public Library's simple web style guide, for using valid, accessible, and backward-compatible XHTML 1.0 Transitional with CSS to make web pages. (Via Happy Cog and Jeffrey Zeldman.)

  • PC World's Mac Skeptic. (Via Dori.)

  • Google staffers' favourite Google tips and tricks (free NYT registration required). (Via SVN.)

  • A couple of summers ago I wrote about E Ink, digital paper that requires no power to maintain its display. Now the first E Ink device is about to go on sale, in Japan of course. (Via Buzzworthy.)
