Water Cube

A solid block of water appears to have rained down on Beijing's Olympic Green. While most architecture buffs have been focused on Herzog & de Meuron's National Stadium -- dubbed the Bird's Nest for its curved shape and overlapping structural supports -- its neighbor, the National Aquatics Center, just might steal the show come opening day. Designed by Australia's PTW Architects, engineering firm Arup, and China State Construction Design International, the so-called Water Cube has a structural system unlike any other building. No wonder -- it's based on an age-old physics problem related to bubbles.

What I learned today about iTunes...

when I listen to iTunes I tend to just shuffle my whole library rather than play specific albums or playlists. but then, every once in a while I hear a song and realize I'm in the mood to hear the rest of that particular album. usually at that point I resort to typing in the name and finding it in the library and all, but I found out a spiffy trick today.

when a song is playing, besides highlighting the track in the list, iTunes also puts a little gray arrow next to it. if you click that arrow, it takes you to iTunes to buy that track or more like it. but if you alt/option-click on that arrow, then iTunes will select the rest of that album to play.
