These Companies Are Monitoring Everything You Buy This Holiday

If last year is anything to go by, Americans will spend more than $60 billion in the four days from Thanksgiving, this Thursday, to the end of the weekend. That doesn’t include Cyber Monday, when merchants put up post-Thanksgiving deals online; Adobe reckons Americans will spend another $2.3 billion on that day this year, up 15% from last year. This is great news for retailers. It is also a bonanza for fraudsters, who use the holiday rush to sneak in charges that they hope will go unnoticed. Dubious deals, card fraud and even returns fraud are popular scams. And as if to make their lives easier, many companies relax their fraud measures somewhat over the holiday period to avoid frustrating legitimate customers. And even shoppers unaffected by fraud may find their bank and credit card statements filled with baffling charges when they get around to reviewing their statements in the haze of the new year.

Happy Faces

Happy Faces focuses on the interaction between man and nature in the city. Each Happy Face is a unique infographic of one of the top 10 monumental trees located in Rotterdam. Bundled as a booklet, they form a city-guide to locate and visit the trees. The trees are recognizable by a sign which is placed in front of each tree. This sign shows the visual of the correspondingHappy Face mask. The physical masks mirror, in an interactive way, the mental state of city people and the effect nature can have on them. The purchase cost of a Happy Facewould be donated to the national tree-foundation. Check it out here! * Text and image from

Sandwich Bike

Inspired by the concept of flat packing and home assembly, we were driven to develop a new bicycle concept; the Sandwichbike, a bike made out of two wooden plates! The contemporary design, the large surface of the frame and the absence of welding joints makes the frame visually attractive and easy to assemble within 30 minutes. The bike will be delivered in a flat cardboard box and can be assembled at home with a few basic tools (provided with the box). With excellent driving dynamics, the Sandwichbike is a unique and highly sophisticated product. Check it out here! * Text and image from

How Two Hikers Turned Trees Into A New Perfume

“Wild” fragrance firm Juniper Ridge has been running a pop-up shop these last couple of months in New York City, where it’s been hosting footpath distillations of local plantlife — literally making cologne from trees and bushes — and running the occasional smell hunt, a short guide to the trees of the neighbourhood based on what the public can sniff.

End of the galapagos era? Japan’s tech and Internet habits have never been more Western

It wasn’t long ago that Japan’s technology space was considered to exist on an entirely different plane to the rest of the world. Mixi was a forerunner to Facebook, going on to list on the domestic stock exchange in 2006, and even today Japanese consumers are still kicking the habit of flip phones, buying devices from the likes of Panasonic, Fujitsu, NEC and other brands not usually associated with mobile. Those are just some examples of Japan’s ‘galapagos‘ syndrome — summarized nicely by the Wall Street Journal last year. Essentially it’s an explanation of how the country’s culture, ideals and consumer trends differ to the US, Europe and the rest of Asia — but here’s something interesting: many of the features of galapagos are being eroded from Japan’s tech space.

Google’s Chromium team is building a way to launch apps without installation by just clicking a link

Google really wants Chrome apps to take off. Not only has the company added rich notifications, in-app payments, and an app launcher into its browser, but now it’s developing ephemeral apps that launch by just clicking a link. There are two separate components here. Ephemeral apps (you can enable this under the chrome://flags/#enable-ephemeral-apps flag) let you try a Chrome app before installing it. Linkable ephemeral apps (under the chrome://flags/#enable-linkable-ephemeral-apps flag) meanwhile allow you to launch said apps from hyperlinks. Both features were first spotted by developer and Google open-source Chromium evangelist François Beaufort. The former was committed a month ago and the second was added yesterday.
