Flash drives don't have the flyest reputation around (although some really cute ones do exist). But that's probably because you aren't used to seeing ones as unique as this set. When it comes to weddings, we like to think of these as a way to say "thanks" to your guests or wedding party members because you can preupload them with photos of the big day and send them out as a sentimental gift. They're fun, they're functional — what else could you ask for? Go ahead, take a look.
Who says sending handwritten notes is a lost cause? Times may be a-changin', but so are our options for delivering a card via snail mail. Today you can send your love straight from your smartphone, iPad, or computer, all thanks to practical apps and websites. You don't ever actually have to pick up a pen to send a thoughtful "handwritten note." Read on to find out how to make your life easier the next time all those birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries roll around.
The Felt Cards iPad app (free) lets your finger, or a stylus, do the talking. Here's the process: choose an original card design, select an ink color, and write your message on your iPad. You can also write out the addresses on the envelope to complete the authenticity. Felt then prints and mails it, all for the cost of $4. Does it get any easier than that?
Because it features a digital address book that loved ones can fill out, Postable can be your one-stop shop for sending handwritten notes. Keep in mind that the site only offers thank you cards, but you won't be disappointed — the designs are fun and unique. Choose from realistic handwriting fonts to write your message, and the company will then stamp and mail the note out. All cards cost $2 plus the price of the stamp.
Discover more digitally "handwritten" options after the break.
If you've watched a friend's Facebook relationship status go from "In a Relationship" to "Single" on your newsfeed, then you may have had one of two reactions: feeling sad or cringing. There's just something uncomfortable about seeing heartbreak unfold before your eyes. If you're the person who's vowed to not let that happen to you and you suddenly find yourself in a relationship status switch, then read on. We promise there's an easy way to avoid the awkwardness of going single online (unless, of course, you actually want all your Facebook friends to know).
All it takes are a few simple steps to hide the announcement. First go to the "About" section on your timeline and scroll down to the "Relationship" section. Hit "Edit" on the upper right corner and change your privacy settings to "Only Me." Then change your status to "Single" or "It's Complicated" or whatever you situation is, and hit save.
Don't want any relationship status whatsoever to appear on your profile? Then simply select the blank area right above where it says "Single" on the dropdown.
If, for some reason, the status change still appears on your timeline, don't fret. Just go to "Edit or Remove" on the upper right corner of that post, and hit "Hide From Timeline." Poof — it disappears from your page and your friends' feeds. There you have it: a foolproof way to sever the ties without blasting the update to the Facebook world.
Been on a flight recently? Chances are, a few passengers didn't turn off their portable electronic devices — maybe you were one of them. Now, we have numbers regarding the rule breaking, thanks to new survey findings released last week. Two industry groups polled passengers and reported that 30 (yes, 30!) percent had left a device on during takeoff or landing.
When it comes to actually shutting off electronics, more than 20 percent said they just switch to airplane mode instead of shutting down completely. The gadget that's left on most often? No surprise: it's the cell phone.
While there's no official proof that these devices affect a plane's radio and electronic systems, the policy remains in place.
We want to know: what's your power-down policy?

The man known as the "king of stop-motion," and for revolutionizing the way we will forever know film, Ray Harryhausen died this week. He pioneered animation and special effects in movies, producing classic titles like The 7th Voyage of Sinbad. "Without Harryhausen's effects work over the last five decades, there never would have been a Star Wars or a Jurassic Park," said Steven Spielberg.
To honor the film genius, we've rounded up some of the best stop-motion videos from the Internet, all of which carry on Ray's creative legacy.
