As we are now in the final stages of our launch preparations, we are really excited to be able to give you a sneaky peak of some of the dresses from our range. We hope you love them as much as we do.
In the next couple of weeks we will be sharing more detailed reviews of each of our silhouettes with plenty more photos and ways to get involved with our imminent launch. Stay tuned and let us know your thoughts of anything you want to see.
When first exposed to Apple’s OS X, I found getting used to using the “Command” key quite challenging. Years of Windows-keyboard muscle memory automatically sent my fingers to the “Control” key when typing shortcuts like copy-and-paste. With time, however, my fingers became accustomed to the Mac keyboard (just as my taste-buds did when changing to black tea, full-fat coke and semi-skimmed milk). In fact, I’ve got so used to it now, my fingers get rather confused when I need to use “Control”-shortcuts again.
So, when I recently needed to create a virtual Linux development environment on my Mac, I found that the default VirtualBox/Ubuntu keyboard configuration didn’t let me copy-and-paste between my OS X programmes and the VirtualBox VM. However, you can easily configure your VM so that copy-and-paste works seamlessly with OS X using the following steps:
Change the default “Host” key from the left “Command” key
Enable copy-and-paste between OS X and your Linux virtual environment
Map the “Command” key to “Ctrl” in your Linux VM
The following sections outline each step in detail.

However, I found this recent Economist article on Luis von Ahn to be quite an inspirational story. Interestingly, after reading this story at last, now when these little boxes pop up, I actually feel like I’m doing something useful…. Continue reading Harnessing Human Computation→
