An iPod for your kids If you want an iPod for your kids, I recommend buying an iPod with video. iPods with hard drives (the 30, 60 and 80 GB models) have moving parts. So teach your children that the iPod is not a toy. Don’t shake it while playing music and movies. It survives [...]
At my local gym S.A.T.S., there are lots of equipment from Technogym. I like the fact that I can set up programs on the treadmill, so it gets more realistic, with hills and speed variations. What if it was MUCH more advanced?
This is one of the funniest ideas I have seen for a party theme – ever. Wish I had a spare room…
This afternoon my friend Eirik‘s site Trendmapper was featured on John Batelle’s Searchblog. Try it for yourself. Go to Trendmapper and enter your search phrase. Every night Trendmapper will search for you, and make a nice graph to show the number of hits. It doesn’t work backwards of course, so the search will only go [...]
“Right now, there are about 800 million cars in active use. By 2050, as cars become ubiquitous in China and India, it’ll be 3.25 billion.” Think about this for a monent. 3.25 billion cars in 45 years. The earth will not survive.
What if you could taste all the different wines at a restuarant for a small fee? That’s how it works at Terrenos Vinotek in Sweden. Machines called Enomatics, from “eno” (latin for “wine”) and “automatic”, are placed in the restaurant. You buy a wine sampling card, and choose which wine to taste. Prices start at [...]
So you thought Firefox was the only browser you could customize? Think again. There are lots of plugins and tools for Apple’s Safari. Pimp My Safari has lists with all the goodies.
One of my top wishes for Final Cut Pro 5, is a check box somewhere at the import files dialog box. This checkbox would say “Move to Capture scrath before importing”. With it checked, Final Cut would move the file you are about to import, from wherever it is located, to the current Capture scratch [...]

The March 2005 Larry Jordan’s Final Cut Pro HD Newsletter is out. You can subscribe to the newsletter at Larry’s site too.
Check out Odometer counter on petrol stations. What do you think? Would it work?
Excellent campaign from the Swedish government. On Flicka.gov.se you can read about how we are being surrounded by messages. About retouching, video effects, clever advertising slogans.
According to Bond site MI6, Quentin Tarantino thinks Pierce Brosnan is just right for the role as 007. I agree. Pierce Brosnan does en excellent job, and is the best Bond so far. I don’t see why they need to change him. The Connery films were too slow, Roger Moore made the whole thing look [...]
Oh, way cool! Check out the lights from Fossil fool. I bike a lot in the woods, and this sure would make the moose turn his head.
