IconDock - A Simpler Shopping Cart

How does it work? Just pick up an item by clicking on it, drag it into the little shopping cart “dock” on the left, and release. That’s it – a drag and drop shopping cart. Of course you can still click the “Add to Cart” button if this doesn’t work for you, but I think this is a very clever way of re-implementing the the tired old shopping cart. Thanks to Dustin for sharing this.

“For even falsehood, uttered by the tongue of man, seemed like truth and light before this hopelessly-deaf and unresponsive silence.”

My new book: a translation of selected short stories by Leonid Andreyev, the father of Russian Expressionism from the Silver Age of Russian literature. A piercing, pitiless glance into the heart of the human condition.
