Facebook ‘Save’ Button Not Unlike PoachIt button

image

Even the eggheads at Facebook know the power of the almighty button. Just launched, the new “Save” feature will allow you to bookmark posts, photos, and the almighty Buzzfeed “Which Cat Are You?” quiz you just can’t fill out right this moment at work. All this content is stored in a folder that you can peruse at your leisure at a later point.

Sounds cool right?

We’re pretty excited about this is because it reinforces how even while we’re all super busy, we actually don’t overlook details— we want a chance to revisit things that pique our interest.

And we love buttons. We like to push things and see what happens. The PoachIt button? Same thang. Click it while you’re shopping online and kablammo! Consider those sneaks saved. No extra effort, no sloppy bookmarking. Plus, you know what’s even better than finding out which feline personality is most like yours? 

Finding a coupon code that works

That’s right— just use your PoachIt button to see allllll the valid coupon codes from across the Interwebs.

So, in conclusion:

1- People love buttons

2- Use the PoachIt button to snap up products. They’ll live in your personal profile, where you can see them all in one place, coo to them, and do a little Price Drop Dance for them while wearing your pajamas backwards. (Or was that what we did for snow days?)

3- When the price drops (and they do, like all the time), you’ll be the first to know.

4- Can’t wait for a sale? That’s cool. We’ll display valid coupon codes for you right on the spot. 

5- Rejoice

I like that they are raising the bar - entrepreneurship is about two things, so I think you see two kinds of styles. First, it’s about being scrappy and focusing on value, not vanity. Hence, folks who eschew and ignore the trappings of fashion: sandals, T-shirts, jeans. On the other hand, we’re all out trying to make the world a better place … Attention to detail matters here, and how you present yourself, your workspace, and your product does fundamentally matter. Personally, I do place a premium on good design & taste – all else being equal, people want to be inspired.

An Egg-stra Special Day: National Egg Day!

Turns out that the very first Egghead was Holy Roman Emperor Claudius Nero Germanicus (b. 10 BC, d. 54 A.D.) He declared the third day of June as National Egg Day and a day of celebration. 

image

What was up with ol’ Claudie and his eggs, you ask? Well, a pretty severe poultry plague devastated Europe at the beginning of the first millennium. Chickens—especially eggs— grossed out a lot of people.

image

Three years after the plague had begun, Claudius challenged fellow nobles to chow down on some eggs and prove to the peasant population that it was totally cool.

image

Everyone was all, NO CLAUD, JUST STOP, except for one classic brown-noser— Augustus Antonius. He invited all far and wide to witness his meal of boiled eggs. Showing no ill effects, the Roman populace once again embraced eggs and poultry. And started building roads. Lots of roads.

image

Eventually, people forgot all about the holiday until 1805 when Napoleon captured historical Italian documents relating to the Holy Roman Empire. Intrigued by the fact that Roman emperors were so enamored of the egg— and totally not wanting to be upstaged by them— he too declared June 3rd as “Oeuf Journée Nationale" or, "National Egg Day." 

image

And for that, we thank you Napoleon.
