Bronze age people: With an appropriate surname for this assignment, Herald writer Andrea Brown visits Glo and Tell, an Arlington spray tan parlor (Page B1).

Spray tans are just the thing for folks who want the suntan look without all the skin cancer and premature aging skin, or who just to dress up as John Boehner for Halloween.

By design: Hoping to make products with the cool factor of Apple's iPad and iPhone, Microsoft has doubled the number of designers at its Redmond headquarters over the past several years to about 1,400 (Page A7).

In other words, there is a Microsoft designer for just about every Windows Phone user.

Who among us has not had trouble falling asleep: A number of new smartphone apps promise to help insomniacs catch some sleep (Page B1). One app analyzes your sleep and adjusts the alarm time so you are awakened during a light phase of your sleep cycle.

But until someone invents an app that prevents creepy work dreams, The Buzz will stick to our preferred sleep-inducer: The collected speeches of John Kerry.
