In this infographic you can find some really interesting facts about eggs.

Jody Foo‘s insight:

So.. Large is "normal". I would have thought that Medium was "normal". I’m thinking Medium = Average = Normal. But maybe that’s just me. Perhaps it is a marketing thing. "If we call the normal sized eggs ‘Large’, people will think they are getting more."

Unzip and flatten multiple zip-files on a Mac (bash)

Here’s just a quick note to my future self (other people are free to take part of it too though).

When using the * character to unzip several files using the unzip command on a Mac, the * has to be escaped as unzip wants to do its file listing by itself, rather than having bash do it for it.

So instead of writing unzip *.zip, you would write \*.zip.

Also as a final note to self, to unzip several zip-files into e.g. the parent directory and also ignore any directory structure contained by the zip file + overwriting any duplicate files, one would write

unzip -o -j -d ../ \*.zip

IDG and reusing published material

I just received this link to an article in the Swedish version of Tech World. As soon as I see a reference to pocket protectors, I get suspicious of the article just being a translation (as pocket protectors are not as iconic in Sweden). One google later, I find the previous versions of the article. First published in January, and then in April. The images in the Swedish article are from the April slide show version.

Now I can’t find anything wrong with a publisher translating its content and re-publishing it, but as a reader, I feel deceived. Can’t they just tell the readers that they are getting translated international content? With the web, this becomes so much obvious compared to the magazine age.
