    SnapKnot Relaunches With A Pinterest-Style Layout To Connect Brides With Photographers

    The wedding space is blowing up here in tech, and for one very obvious reason. Almost everything about planning a wedding is pretty ancient. People build out complicated spreadsheets for their guest list, they are forced to search high and low for ways to spread around photos and invite-type information, and searching for vendors is about as accurate as doing a Google search for wedding… Read More

    Some website: "iPods are not good wedding gifts"

    I'm writing this up because of how delightfully ham-handed it is, which suggests their tactic worked. Basically, some "gadget matchmaker" service called Retrevo ran a study asking newlyweds what gadgets they wanted as wedding gifts. 38% wanted a camcorder, 24% wanted a digitial camera, and 2% wanted an MP3 player.

    Geek Proposes Via Dashboard Widget

    Some would call this a story of love between two geeks. Apparently, some dork who goes by the username “Bjorn” on Flickr proposed to his girl by coding out a custom Dashboard widget. Shaped like a ring box, the widget has an image of a diamond engagement ring and the message “Jennifer Christensen Will You marry me?” He told her to hit F12 and the rest is history. Awwww.

    Chris Pirillo and Wife Read Vows From UMPCs

    It seems Blog Ninja Chris Pirillo and his lady wife dediced to read their vows off of two UMPCs. I really don’t know what to think. It seems like a logical idea — geeks in love, etc. — but why didn’t they get an HD projector and scroll the vows on the back wall of the church, U2 style. That would have been geeking out. Anyway, congrats, kids. A Tablet PC Wedding… Read More
