Cassette’s Not Dead

Do you remember the cassette tapes? They were used before to store audio recording messages and music that is when the CDs, the mp3 and ipods were in style.  Found some cool designs from ooomydesigns.com that transformed them into works of art with both function and form. Tribute to cassette tape, which kept us  company all through the 80’s and became a symbol of a generation. Taking advantage of  its structural properties, a lamp/box has been created only by means of tying the tapes firmly […]

Most BIZARRE Coke Commercial Ever

So I finally understand it. Why we all love Coca Cola so much. There has been many legends and rumors about the origins of the very addicting beverage. Everything from there being real cocaine in small amounts in the first “Original” Coca Cola to it being used as rust removal from the start. It’s even been rumored that it was used as medicine for a bad stomach etc. BUT, I think I cracked it…I think I actually cracked it. The mystery why we all love […]

Happy 20th Anniversary Seinfeld!

“Are you sponge-worthy?” If you understand that question, then you’ll love this article! Since 2009 marks the 20th anniversary of the first episode of Seinfeld, I thought it was only fitting to write an article to pay tribute to one of the best sitcoms ever created. I think I have every episode of Seinfeld memorized. I’ve watched them all over and over. If you are like me, Seinfeld isn’t just a TV show, it’s part of who you are. I can find a Seinfeld quote […]

The good, bad and the ugly

If your life is anything like mine, your day is spent sitting in front of your computer almost all day long, with out taking much of a break. One thing leads to the next and before you know its, its 9pm. This is a typical life of most freelancers. Sitting all day long can take a toll on your health. I noticed a that my shoulders would hurt, my hand was in pain, I couldn’t read the words on my screen without getting a headache…. […]

Bluetooth Headset?

No it’s not an engagement ring nor a bracelet.  This is Orb, a ring that transforms into a beautiful Bluetooth headset. Looks like sci-fi material, but it’s an actual product coming in 2010. Good, because it’s probably the first Bluetooth headset that looks great on a woman’s ear. There will be three models of the class 2 Bluetooth Orb: A $130 basic model—coming in January—a $175 Deluxe edition with a minuscule FOLED display, and a limited edition with actual precious gems on it, both coming […]

Darth Vader Switched from the Dark side?

Is that Darth Vader doing an MC Hammer’s 80’s “You can’t touch this?” Yes you got it right. OMG i had a great time watching this hilarious video. It was a treat watching the Darth himself with the stormtroopers dancing to entertain the crowd during the Disneyland event last March 2009.  How about the Storm troopers doing a backstreet boys number.  Really fun to watch as I’m sure the emperor will truly NOT approve seeing his Lord Vader getting down and jiggy with it! Vader […]

5 Very Cool Webcams

I love the idea of webcams, but most of them show very blurry and boring content. I took some time and made a list below of five very cool ones for your enjoyment. These come from a long list of my personal favorites. I like to leave the penguin cam open in a browser window to keep me company when I’m working at night. If you catch one of the falcons on the falcon cam you will be glad you waited. They are magnificent creatures. […]

Laptop (R)evolution

Ouch!! Check out the video below and see how the laptop has evolved through the years. The macbook air and the famous […]

And what I fund was actually two video tutorials that could possibly make you a font creator in no time. The videos show how to create TrueType fonts from […]

The Fast and the Furious – Home-Brewed Carputers

I’m one of those dorky people that gets nauseous in the car when I look down. I cannot read a magazine or access the internet from a handheld device without feeling sick. However, I don’t like feeling left behind by not being able to tweet or send email while on the road. After a few years of research, I’ve found the solution. I’m ready to install a real computer, otherwise known as a carputer, into my 2001 Nissan Pathfinder. I will make sure the computer […]
