    I'll say it. I hate Buzzfeed.

      Never thought I'd see the day when a Buzzfeed article was #1 on DN.

      I'm not even going to click on it, just because it's Buzzfeed.

      This is what happens when you let everyone and their mother signup to DN without another designer inviting them.

        Actually, Gadzhi (the OP) joined DN within a year of it's launch, long before open registration began.

        The blame needs to fall somewhere else.

        Ironically, we all contribute to the extension of this post's life-span at the top of DN with each comment.

      Don't care. It's an interesting link.

    There are digital libraries where one scans a QR code to get the book they want

    the future sucks.

    I'm sure there are people out there who will snark on seeing a Buzzfeed link on DN, but I didn't know about #2 on that list and it's amazing. Not as amazing as a cure of course, but it's the kind of tangible 'good' that designers, creators and engineers can bring to the world.

      In the spirit of buzzfeed. You've contributed to their terribleness.

      "Check out this article from Buzzfeed. I didn't know about #2 on the list and it's amazing!"

        I agree Buzzfeed is abysmal, but why put someone else down when they are genuinely excited/interested in something?

          Because it's naturally easier to be snarky than it is to be considerate, especially online when you don't actually have to engage with someone. Dismissing something as worthless takes no effort or thought, while taking some time to try change viewpoint and find worth does take some effort.

            I disagree. Being snarky isn't easier than being considerate. The easiest thing to do would be not to reply at all. Or saying "lol, I thought so too!" I didn't dismiss anything as worthless and had no intentions of changing a viewpoint. To that point I'm not even sure what viewpoint there is to be changed on this topic.

            My intent was not to be snarky. I genuinely enjoyed the buzzfeed style title as comment (even though I don't think you intended it) in this post where many were complaining about buzzfeed.

            Perhaps "terribleness" made it seem snarky. I do hate that style of headline but no hate towards you or your enjoyment of #2

          Hah, no hate here. I found the irony more amusing than anything. Guess I should have included a winky face.

          I do really look forward to the day when "you'll never guess what happens" finally becomes ineffective. Then maybe we can get back to legit headlines.

    Some of these are great and are relevant to a design forum. Thank you for the share. You may dislike Buzzfeed, but this is what they do and this is content I feel works well with this group.

    Is 19 real? Hard to believe! Must be a side of the city that isn't the part of the classic downtown?

    The "transparent cars" one is a little misleading:

    It's some new tech from Land Rover that uses cameras around and underneath the car to project what they see onto the windscreen, which makes it look like the hood is see-through. Still really cool and really useful, though.
