SAN FRANCISCO -- Twitter has caused an uproar with a controversial change to its blocking policy. It used to be that when you blocked a user, it meant that person could not follow you and could not track your updates on the service. Now even if you block someone, that person can still see everything you do, interact with you and receive your updates in his or her timeline. You just won't see that person's activity on Twitter. That means blocked users can retweet or favorite your tweets.

Let's be honest, sometimes there's no better way to waste time on a Friday at work than on Facebook. And after stumbling upon the addictive new website "What Would I Say?," wasting time got even more fun. The website culls old Facebook activity and uses the information to predict a future status based on what you talk about and how you talk about it. The result: a sometimes funny, sometimes nonsensical status that is often uncannily accurate. "What Would I Say?" got even better when we discovered that users can generate statuses for Facebook pages belonging to celebrities or organizations.

When looking at wood from the Los Angeles company Timeline, one can't help but fall for the illusion. You're not really looking at vintage wood salvaged from an aged barn. Those are newly painted boards covering the floors and walls of the Timeline showroom downtown - new boards made to look old. The company handcrafts each one, creating nicks and scratches in the wood to mimic the rough surface of reclaimed lumber. Paint is layered in a manner that plays off other coats as well as the texture of the wood.
