A dentist came up with this self-stirring pot. It uses a tornado like effect to stir the water.

This foldable pot is perfect for camping, backpacking and ultra portable. As long as there is liquid in HexaPot you can use it on an open flame and it won’t catch on fire. Pretty cool idea.

OS X mail has a nasty habit of alway. I mean always embedding images. Mail doesn’t seem to know what you mean by attachement or even “Send windows friendly attachment” it’s not friendly at all. The problem is html formatting most mail clients want things to look pretty and put the image into the email as if it’s part of the email. What happens when you need the picture to be an attachment? Well there is one way to do it. Simply right click the image and select “View as icon” that is it. There is no other way that doesn’t involve a third party plugin. Send windows friendly attachement doesn’t work neither does the option to place attachements at the end of the message. If you want to send an actual attachement to a windows user then you need to right click the image and select view as icon. 

Note: two finger tap works as a “right click” or secondary click if not you can control+click the image.
