Emergency Juice

If you’re like me and gadgets are a big part of your life, this will sound very familiar: just as you’re expecting an important phone call, you battery goes dead, or maybe your iPod dies on you in the middle of an interesting podcast. With the IOGear GearJuice Rercue Charger, you’ll be able to give you gadgets just that extra amount of juice.

Just big enough to house a single AA battery it’s got a mini-USB plug
to connect up to many MP3 players, cameras and phones. It’ll give a
phone about 15 mins of talk time— enough to call Mom and Dad and tell
them you’ll be home late and your phone’s out of juice, anyway.
Available for around $11.99

TAM Time !

I’ve been a big fan of Al Diblasi’s video’s for almost two years now. Today, via TUAW, I found a video of his latest classic mac acquisition. Al bought himself a Twentieth Anniversary Mac in the box, unopened, off of eBay. These machines used to cost 10000 dollars, were delivered in a limo and even someone who set it up for you at home. Bose had a big part in the design, mind you that big thing next to the screen is not a computer, it’s just the Bose subwoofer. The TAM’s 1997 design was more or less the basis of the current iMac line.

The Genius Of Photography

D14 by Man Ray

Dankzij Artur 2 weken geleden afgestemd op The Genius of Photography, een 6-delige BBC-reeks over de fotografie, haar ontstaan en evolutie, en haar verschillende toepassingsvormen. Ik moet zeggen dat ik al veel nuttige informatie en zelfs een beetje inspiratie heb kunnen halen uit de 2 afleveringen die ik al gezien hebben.

Als fotografie je ding is vergeet dan deze donderdag vooral niet af te stemmen op canvas voor de vierde aflevering “Paper Movies” tussen 22:05 en 23:05.

Serie Atget/Rauschenberg

Een leuke vergelijkende serie foto’s die ik vond in de comments van Artur’s weblog.

Geek + tasty beverage = floppy disk coasters

per chipchick

Despite the fact that floppy disks only held mere kilobytes of data, we still have fond memories of them. Nowadays they are unfortunately just about useless, but are rather iconic items. Supermandolini has a set of 6 Soft Sector glass coasters that are designed just like those floppy disks of yore. The colorful coasters are made of a vinyl top with a gloss finish and foam base. The Soft Sector coasters retail for €27.00.

I really like the design and wouldn’t mind putting my tasty beverage on them.
