Is this serious? On the CNN home page today there was a headline "Teen says no to Princeton, Yale, others". Of course with a juicy headline like that (saying no to Princeton???) I wanted to check it out, but super-annoyingly the link was to a video (the link is here if you want to watch it) (sorry, couldn't resist, the real link is here). I hate video-only links because I really don't want to watch a 60-second video about it (complete with commercial), I just want to scan the article in about 10 seconds. Anyway I then noticed another little icon next to the link that looked a little like a t-shirt, so I clicked on it and I got to...WTF? Then you click on the FAQ and the first question is "What are the minimum computer specifications required". But as far as I can tell, it's for real.

You mean the tshirt icon? If so, yup they've had that for about 3 weeks now. You can get headlines on a shirt. Really stupid idea.

I can't stand to watch the videos on CNN and I hate that there is no written story alternative. I just want to read it!
