It’s tough out there for Twitter users. Some days, you’re unstoppable, racking up favs and retweets faster than you can count. It feels like the internet is hanging on your every word. Most days, however, it’s another story altogether. Your witty observations, hilarious links, artfully-shot food photos, and cryptic messages land with a thud, bouncing off the craniums of your followers (half of which may or may not be robots) without leaving an impact.

If you want to relive your most abject Twitter failures (and if you’re like me, you have a lot), the recently-launched Sad Tweets site will serve them up to you for critique and judgement. After logging in with your Twitter credentials, Sad Tweets surfaces tweets you’ve made that don’t…

The Google+ photo organization and editing tools are probably the most useful part of Google’s oft-critizied social network, and now it sounds like they’ll soon be spun off into their own standalone product. According to Bloomberg, Google is planning to make the existing Google+ photo features into an independent product that’ll be accessible even to users who don’t have a Google+ account. It’s an effort to find more users for the strongest part of Google+ without the baggage that comes with a service that has consistently struggled to find an engaged user base, despite Google’s claims to the contrary.

But if you’re stuck in the office, slaving away until the weekend begins, there’s a Twitter feed that’s custom-built to getting you through.

The first new Super 8 camera in 30 years is a collision of modern and vintage

When a 4-ounce smartphone can shoot hours of 1080p video, it’s easy to think that analog film is dead. But plenty of filmmakers big and small still have intense interest in keeping classic film formats alive, including the treasured “Super 8” format. Super 8 had its heyday in the 1970s, though plenty of filmmakers continued to use it for years — though new camera equipment was increasingly hard to come by. A father-son due in Denmark has changed that with the first Super 8 camera made in 30 years, the Logmar S-8.

Announced late last year, the Logmar S-8 includes a bunch of features that would have been unthinkable in 1975. Perhaps most noteworthy, the camera records real-time digital audio — pop an SD card in and you can record high…
