Right now (as of end of September 2005), Yahoo Domains sell domain names for $2.99 a year if you buy five years. That’s $14.95 for a domain for 5 years. Wow. Next, head over to Dreamhost, and subscribe to one of their plans. Dreamhost is 8 years and now gives you unlimited domains with any [...]
Brian Wilson has a brilliant idea. He personally calls everyone who donates more than 100 US dollars to the hurricane wictims. Yes, he calls you personally and talks with you for a few minutes. What a nice gesture. AND – he as his wife Melinda will match the amount of money you give. Thank you, [...]
Neil makes superhero cartoons: This superhero does SO need to meet David…
Some days ago I wrote about FontExplorer X, a font tool for the Mac with a iTunes look. Now, have a look at VitalSource, a new net shop for ebooks. It looks like everybody is copying iTunes music store. The concept is quite clever:
Tigert.com reports: “Now, we need to understand that listening to music on your computer is an extra priviledge. Normally people listen to music on their car or through their home stereos”, says Kyyrä and continues; “If you are a Linux or Mac user, you should consider purchasing a regular CD player.” I can’t even start [...]
Maybe it’s been out there for ages, but I didn’t see it until today. The Scottevest is a jacket for all your gadgets, including your iPod. Here’s the commercial in Quicktime, 300K (Windows media and other speeds available on page).
I [heart] undo Originally uploaded to Flickr jkottke. Jason Kottke has posted this photo from the AIGA Design Conference. It reminds of a friend of mine who had been working 16 hours a day on a big project, sitting in front of her Mac editing in Photoshop. She came back to her apartment, and had [...]
Lovely Cameron Diaz has two Priuses. Both looks and brains. How can you not like that?
iTunes 5 is out, and it looks great. I like the new refined look. Now let’s hope we can get that look all over OS X, in all applications. The most important thing missing in iTunes 5 is a history menu. Or log menu. I have blogged about it before, I have reported it to [...]
On the subject of fonts, Linotype also has a cool page where they show which fonts were used for different movie posters. Return of the jedi was Times Roman, Rocky was Franklin Gothic and Titanic was Trajan. Nice to know when you’re making posters for your latest iMovie piece of art…
LinoType FontExplorer X is a new application that lets you browse your Mac fonts in a iTunes-looking interface. It’s still in beta, and is free. It will also be free when it’s final. LinoType does this beacuse the program has access to the LinoType font store, just as iTunes has the iTunes music store. One [...]
There are three problems with concept cars: 1) They look soooooo much better than the normal cars. 2) They never build them. 2) And you never get to buy them. Hopefully peugeot will change that. The car “moovie” was the winner of the 2004-2005 design contest. And do you want one? I do. Now gizmag [...]
“American experts named three major and realistic catastrophe scenarios that could cost the lives of thousands: 1. A great earthquake in California. 2. A terrorist attack 3. The flooding of New Orleans” This is the claim in a discussion on Flickr. Have anyone seen this list before? Who made it? If it’s true, it would [...]
Yesterday I installed Shaun Inman’s new mint on my site. Three words: I love it.
Dreamsicle lets you use your Sony Ericsson W800 – the “walkman phone” to play your tunes and view your pictures. It syncs with iTunes and iPhoto, and has an option to reduce the size of the files to get more of them on your phone. And – it can convert videos from your Mac onto [...]
