MATERIALS: Sanford Distributing introduces new, smaller quantity packaging for its range of Double/Bubble® epoxy, urethane and silicone adhesives. Double/Bubble adhesives are now available in Variety-Pak cartons of 25 or 50, in addition to the traditional 100-size carton. The unique, color-coded, dual-pouch adhesive formulations include eight epoxies, three urethanes and a silicone to handle virtually any installation, maintenance or repair requirement. The new, economy-size cartons are designed to meet the needs of small to medium-size organizations for in-house or field service applications. Users can purchase cartons of a single Double/Bubble epoxy, urethane or silicone formulation or they can specify a combination of adhesives to meet their needs. The patented, single-use packaging concept solves the time-consuming and costly problems of having to preserve unused portions of adhesives in conventional containers, which generally hold more material than necessary for most applications.

Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
