Ah, icons - creating them can be a tedious process even for seasoned designers. Luckily, Smashing Magazine has given us all an arsenal of which to start from. Expect to see most of these icons (or slight variations of them) in iPhone apps, productivity software, and/or WordPress themes near you soon.

Yes folks, you might want to think twice the next time you catch a quick snooze on the back row of a commercial airline flight. You may end up in a part of the airport  that you did not quite expect (or a different destination entirely).

New iPad commercial accidentally reveals some book pricing information.New iPad commercial accidentally reveals some book pricing information.

It's easy to miss just by viewing the ad but the folks over at The Unofficial Apple Blog have spotted a frame of the commercial that indeed shows off some pricing. So, want to know what you'll be paying for books on the iPad? Probably around $12-$14 bucks a pop.
