LEGO x Ikea: Get ready for BYGGLEK collection in October!

These Lego storage boxes are very big and have some weird base where small pieces find their way and are very hard to recover. This solution from Lego and Ikea seem far more sensible and useful with the brick pattern integrated. Looks like they're stackable too so you can use them like giant bricks and then build on top of them.

#ByeByeFacebook

I really should do this. I barely use Facebook these days. The app is hidden away on my phone, I visit the web site out of habit rather than necessity and when I do, I rarely scroll down past the first few items.

If you're looking for a reason, here are 22 along with a few solutions for being able to get whatever it was you were getting out of Facebook.
