It was just a matter of time until someone went and published this I think. It would have been quite obvious to publish this video clip as we’re talking about social media and that it’s taking over the world one person at the time. Is that making us less social? Not in the words meaning itself but is it making us more and more afraid to actually interact eye to eye? I truly hope not as I love meeting new people and it’s would make […]

Gamer or not you know about World of Warcraft, its just everywhere. Â Geeky or cool every one’s senses will be even more overwhelmed by the Blizzard success when it finally comes to the big screen. Yes that’s right, somewhere in the pipeline there is a World of Warcraft movie.

Â Riddick was special though – the game […]

There is always a question that looms around specially on the subject of social media. Is social media a fad? Or is it the biggest shift since the Industrial Revolution? Maybe some have already seen the video but felt it had to be shared to our bitrebels readers. What is cool about this video is that it has numbers or statistics. I think this is a pretty good tool one can use when he or she wants to explain social media and how it has […]

There are several tell tail signs that a person is lying if you’re just open enough to the truth. To spot someone lying can sometimes be very uncomfortable and telling them you know they are lying is probably the hardest thing to do. However, to maintain a good relationship it’s important to remember that honesty is key. That goes when having to […]
Found a screensaver that Brand Studio created for Toyota. Its actually a very simple interactive screen saver that gives emphasis that every 5 seconds one more Toyota car appears in the world. It opens with a car being pushed to the right side of the screen, looks rather normal but after the car is out of sight, a clock opens and a car morphs showcasing the different Toyota models. Check it out here. Creativity is truly the name of the game when it comes to […]
What is a Favicon? A favicon (short for “favorites icon”), also known as a page icon or an urlicon, is an icon associated with a particular website or webpage. A web designer can create such an icon, and many recent web browsers can then make use of them. Browsers that support favicons may display them in the browser’s URL bar, next to the site’s name in lists of bookmarks, and next to the page’s title in a tabbed document interface. Here are some links to […]

Kinetic typographyâ€”the technical name for “moving text”â€”is an animation technique mixing motion and text. This text is presented over time in a manner intended to convey or evoke a particular idea or emotion. It is often studied in Communication Design and Interaction Design courses. Some commonly seen examples of this technique include movie title sequences and credits, web page animation and other entertainment media. Kinetic typography is often produced using standard animation programs, including Adobe Flash, Adobe After Effects, and Apple Motion. Students at CMU‘s […]
One of the downsides of the iPhone is that it’s not yet capable to show Flash apps/videos in the Safari browser. It’s quite annoying if you ask me and I hope everyday that they will hook it up.

Then again, maybe there is another issue in work as well not making it that suitable to have Flash apps/videos enabled on the iPhone Safari browser. However, I […]
