Best Use of Idle Domains?

What do you think is the best use of idle domains. Lets say for instance that I had a site called TimeForLearning. Does it make sense to get sites like ,, and  and save them for future diversifications? I would think so. But what should I do with them?
- Park them for cash?
- 301 redirect them?
- Fill them up with blogs and content?
-Leave them idle?

Flash on an iPad: isifter

I showed everyone in my office a magic trick. I showed them the flash games of spellingcity running on an iPad!

My wife, not the CTO or other geniuses that I work with, figured it out. First, you download isifter from the app store. Then, you load isifter and enter and you're off and running.

It's a browser with some flash-like player built-in. It only works on the iPad (not the iPhone) and only in landscape mode. While it worked for 14 games, it didn't work on one (LetterFall).

Pretty cool & confusing!

Google Plus One - What do we think?

I got this email from Google this week:

Hi John,

Thanks for getting back to me. To give you some context, my call was
regarding Google +1, a product which Google launched yesterday. Adding +1
buttons to your pages is a great way to help your content stand out in
Google search. By giving your visitors more chances to +1 your pages, your
search results and search ads could show up with +1 annotations more
often, helping users see when your pages are most likely to be useful.
Here are a few important links which can help you:
