While it may be illegal to deface traffic signals for a variety of reasons (violent car crashes), these stop signs feature a clever line or cliché that includes the word stop. They may not be the world’s coolest bus stops, but they might make you think twice before rolling through an intersection.

It’s hard to stop at every stop sign you see, especially if the sign’s behind a bush or tall people crossing the street. Officials in Oak Lawn, IL tried to change things by modifying the city’s stop signs to be a little more eye-catching. In the fall of 2007 they added one-liners like, “Stop means that you aren’t moving.” to their signage, but the Illinois Department of Transportation pointed out the changes breached safety standards and requested their removal. The signs were removed in April 2008.

Clipmarks.com Is Having A McAfee SiteAdvisor Problem

leave a comment »

Eric Goldstein responds to McAfee via a Clip at Clipmarks.com about their recent labeling as a site to use with extreme caution.

Being a pretty frequent user who has never run into any of the issues the users who are leaving negative reviews on McAfee are mentioning, it seems a bit peculiar.

The conspiracy theorist in me thinks it’s most likely a spammer who was banned who is making these ridiculous claims.

Dear McAfee,
I’m Eric Goldstein, a member of the Clipmarks team. What i can say as a matter of fact is that some of the negative reviews below are complete lies. We have never served a pop-up ad… never! So anyone claiming they received pop-ups is lying. And the people who are saying there is malware on Clipmarks are referring to a tiny handful of clips posted by spammers that we immediately removed. We vigilantly monitor Clipmarks for suspicious, spammy posts by users and do our best to remove the posts and users immediately.

To have Clipmarks on this list is very harmful to our business . I can only hope that someone at McAfee will look into this asap and remove us from this “Extreme Caution” list.

Buy Your Jeans At Amazon

leave a comment »

Who would have thunk it? But yes apparently they sell jeans now and apparently they have a really great selection as only Amazon could possibly have. Nice job Amazon.

Amazon Denim Shop

Amazon.com just launched their own Denim Shop today. From what I can tell, it looks like a real winning combination of many elements.

  • First, they are carrying a great selection of denim. Brands range from premium denim such as Rock & Republic, William Rast, and 7 For All Mankind, to American staples like Levis, Carhartt, Lee, and Wrangler. It’s pretty much a one stop shop for anything you need in denim. (For a complete list of brands see the list of tags at the bottom of this post.)
  • Second, and this is my favorite feature of Amazon’s Denim Shop, you have the ability to search for the exact price range, color, brand, discount, and whether the style of jeans is a new arrival, all right there on the first page of the shop. It’s absolutely fantastic. For instance, let’s say you want a pair of women’s jeans that are on sale for 25% off or more and you want a style that arrived in the last month. You can do that.
