Jaime: A New-Look Burger King
Burger King Asia-Pacific has hired design collective Outofstock to revamp their restaurants, and they recently unveiled their pilot design at this Burger King Grill in Singapore. Definitely a new direction, and surprisingly pleasant, with all the wood and brick. Hard to imagine in the U.S., though. Take a look here.
Aaron: TNG Season 8
This Twitter feed suggests hilariously parodic/spot-on plot lines for episodes of the fictional eighth season of "Star Trek: The Next Generation." I cannot describe how hard I have laughed at this thing this week. I've not seen a clearer understanding of Commander Riker in some time. A sample from the feed: "A Ferengi merchant's magical toys are powered by dangerous Borg technology. A field trip of child geniuses embarrass Geordi." Engage!
Katie: Little Printer
Hello Little Printer, available 2012 from BERG on Vimeo.
It's true—big things do come in small packages. Little Printer, designed by BERG, happily (yes, even with a smile) doles out receipt sized print-outs tailored to you. Using your smartphone, this cube shaped device brings daily puzzles, harmless gossip, birthday reminders, your grocery list, and yes, even Foursquare check-ins at the touch of a button. Little Printer won't be here in time for the holidays, but will be available for pre-sale in 2012.

Diana: Every Outdoor Basketball Court in Manhattan
