So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn’t possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn’t worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.
The Post-It Is Not Obsolete
Hey, look at this thing! It’s like a hastily scribbled Post-It note except in highly inconvenient three-minute video form! The $US80 Native Union Play isn’t a bad idea. It’s just price and technology without any actual progress. It doesn’t belong on your ridge, it belongs at the back of a Hammacher-Schlemmer catalogue. [Pocket Lint]
Nokia Offering $US10,000 for a Ringtone Remix
Nokia, your ringtone is beautiful. Don’t ever change. And especially don’t change via some weird crowdsourcing marketing stunt. Maybe put that $US10,000 towards a nice Windows Phone? Eh? Maybe? Please? [Electronista]
Turn a Spare LCD Into a Monitor for $US33
Hey, one guy who has a spare LCD display lying around and is in need of an extra monitor and is not at all skeeved out just a little about handing your payment info over to an anonymous eBay seller based somewhere in China in exchange for a DIY kit that can turn said LCD display into a function monitor: this one’s for you.

But What If Apple’s Terms and Conditions Looked Like This?
They won’t. Ever. Ever ever never. I might as well draw a smiley face with rabbit ears and an exploded cigar, since that’s even more fun to look at and every bit as likely to take the place of Apple’s current T&C culsternut. [CultofMac]
Left Behind is our daily collection of chaff we didn’t think was quite good enough to post on its own, and why.
