4. The Times has a great slideshow on Mercura NYC, the one-of-a-kind sunglasses company run by sexagenarian sisters Merrilee Lichtenstein Cohen and Rachel Cohen-Lunning.

5. Deadpan British band Art Brut has released an iPad app to showcase the album art for their new best-of compilation. (via Press Release)
