Got a couple of Olympia SoundBugs from ThinkGeek.com, they have a great deal if you buy two, only $89.99 for both! Each SoundBug has another port for daisy-chaining, if you’re a real sucker for stereo. Sound quality isn’t fantastic, but it sure was fun going around the office and sticking it any which place. Wood seems to offer the best acoustics, just be sure it’s polished enough otherwise the suction won’t hold.

Facebook gives you two options: two options: deactivate or delete
"Minority groups in tech are no strangers to being second-guessed, condescended to, overlooked, underpaid, and uncredited. But seeing Damore’s arguments made public—and, in some cases, seeing them elicit support—was a fresh smack in the face."
Update: A Facebook spokesperson apologized for the mistake and said, "We know how painful it is when someone feels unwelcome or attacked on our platform, and how much worse it must be when they are prevented from sharing that experience with others. We need to do better and are committed to improving our process on these important issues." The site is also working on ways to distinguish between hate speech and its condemnation.
