Funny Warning Signs

These were on the bag that my new keyboard at work.  Pretty humorous, if you ask me.

Flickr Gets Video!

9 Apr

Look here.

Looks as if Yahoo has given flickr video capabilities. Videos are limited to 90 seconds and the privilege to upload has been limited to Pro users. A cool group with some of the early video additions to flickr can be seen in this group here. While it remains to be seen whether this new service will be any sort of rival to youtube, it will definitely be great to see what kinds of things that those who habitually view life through a lens will share with this moving picture format. I think it’s all kinda neat. O, and check this one from Norby.

desktop wallpaper project

Thanks to Bobby S over at the Kitsune Noir blog, desktops around the world will now be more stylish as they launch The Desktop Wallpaper Project today.  Each Wednesday you can mosey on over the +KN blog and pick up a new wallpaper from one of the most talented artists practicing today — all free.  Today’s contributions come from Tim Biskup, Mcbess and IMAKETHINGS.  I’ve been waiting for an idea like this to come along for some time.  Each wallpaper is available in a variety of sizes, including custom versions for iPhones and PSPs. Enjoy!

Great Britain Looks Into Banning Internet Pirates

12 Feb

No Pirates

Looks like internet users in Britain could face a ban for downloading illegal films or music.  Let’s hope that this does not pass. From Yahoo! News:

LONDON (AFP) – Internet users in Britain who illegally download films and music face being banned from going online, according to leaked government proposals published in The Times on Tuesday.

According to the plans, the government “will move to legislate to require internet service providers to take action on illegal file sharing” which record companies and film companies say is costing them billions of dollars (euros) in lost revenue.

The proposals were included in a Green Paper — the first step to changing a law in Britain — on the creative industries that is due to be published next week.

The Times said that the plans would involve a “three-strikes” regime — users would first receive an e-mailed warning if they were suspected of illegally downloading films or music.

They would then receive a suspension from their Internet service upon their second offence, and face a termination of their Internet contract if they were caught on a third occasion.

This is bullshit.

Also available hi-res here.

This amazing video is the coolest use I’ve seen yet of the trend of light graffiti that has been in vogue over the past year or so.  The creators of this great video have published an amazing instructable of how they did it here, which they parlayed into a $15,000 laser engraver in a contest from the folks over at Instructables.

Apple Loosens Its Grip, Releases Bigger iPhone, iPod Touch

5 Feb

It’s about damn time. The iPhone beginning to approach a capacity that is actually usable to serious iPodders.  Beginning today, the iPhone will now be available in a 16GB model, while the iPod Touch has increase its top capacity to 32GB.  I don’t think that I will get an iPhone until they are at least 30GB, so hurry up Apple!

At today’s Macworld Keynote presentation given by Apple guru Steve Jobs, the Cupertino, California company announced the MacBook Air, a breakthrough in the world of laptop computing.  Thinner and more powerful than the Sony Vaio TZ series, these tiny wonders fit comfortably within a manila envelope, yet still manages to incorporate a 13.3-inch display, full-size keyboard, iSight (built-in camera) and an 80GB 1.8-inch hard drive — the same ones the iPods use.  Continue reading
