Ikea just ‘fixed’ one of the most annoying things about its furniture

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to assemble the strangely named but good-looking pieces of furniture Ikea makes, but you still have to put some elbow grease into such Ikea home projects, especially bigger ones.

iPhone fans who sleep outside Apple Stores are ridiculous… and I think they’re great

Let’s get this out of the way: There is simply no sane reason to spend days sleeping outside the Apple Store just so you can be among the first people to get the new iPhone. This is especially true because you have the opportunity to both preorder the new device online or to buy it at a number of other retail locations that won’t be as crowded. Nonetheless, while I’m not an iPhone user and I would never sleep outside a store for any smartphone, I really admire iPhone fans’ passion despite the fact that I also think they’re ridiculous.
