Mutant Child

Windows Vista has ruined Alt-Tab (via Design Feed)- Well, look at that. They sure have! What the hell is that? It looks like Microsoft smashed together the ALT-TAB function and Exposé from OS X. It’s like breeding a Doberman Pinscher with a Dachshund. Ooof!

Flickr Related Tag Browser – this is sort of an oldie, but I just rediscovered it and realized how awesome it is. It’s an example of using Flash to make an action easier and quicker. …by the way, I recommend exploring ALL of Felix Turner’s Airtight Interactive, he’s a great example of someone who has […]

Waiting to be explored

The New York Times has a great article in this Sunday’s paper about urban exploration, Children of Darkness. Seeing photos of decaying historic artifacts and hidden landmarks reminds you of the layered history of New York. We don’t have any Stone Henge’s, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a fascinating, layered story beneath the […]

In Transit

I dropped my car off at my parents house in New Jersey yesterday, and took the train back in. Most of the photos I shot lomo-style, from the hip, guesstimating good shots and hoping for the best. Unexpecting shots are always the best. The complete set: In Transit 7.27.2007 Pretty Afro, Herald Square, originally uploaded […]

A flywheel lamp. I love you.

These lamps are from another world. You want to talk about design? Suck on these works of genius by Campbell Levy Designs. Seeing car parts in this context is both beautiful and alien at the same time. It makes me think of Picasso’s Tete de Toro (Bull’s Head), or Baboon & Young. I think Campbell […]

US Senators call for universal Internet filtering – I don’t like the sound of this at all. At all. Oscar the Cat Predicts Patients’ Deaths Oscar the cat seems to have an uncanny knack for predicting when nursing home patients are going to die, by curling up next to them during their final hours. His […]

Postmodern Video

I love the pop culture obsessed world we live in. Any time a celebrity buys a cookie or picks their nose, the media has to report on it. Well, CNN was not able to be in the crowd for a Beyonce concert when she took a spill on the stage. What they were able to […]

Hearing, Not Listening

Hey Samsung, something is missing from this shitty iPhone imitation you’re launching. …a shot of the software it runs. Samsung, Motorola, Nokia – you all know how to make a beautiful looking phone. Now you need to take a step back. You need to start thinking about design in other areas of your business. You […]

JDK Design Apple Profiles – wow, I need to do more exploring on the Apple site. They have a lot of great content below the surface.

It’s Not a Salad Bar

Let’s get something straight people. You can be religious OR you can be superstitious. You cannot be both. They are mutually exclusive of each other. *This also applies to people who claim to be religious that also follow their horoscope, uh, religiously. Pick one.

Set It Free

strandbeest (via lessrain) by Theo Jansen – No batteries. No LCD display. No wires. Beautfiul and Amazing.

The Touch

If you’re a nerd like me, tell me if something similar has ever happened to you: My wife was just having problems connecting to the internet on her Apple Powerbook. I asked her if I could see the laptop. She gave it to me. I quit out of Firefox, restarted Firefox and got onto CNN.com […]

Punchout – They have a beautiful layout on this site, what Andy Rutledge would call quiet structure. I wish the transitions were a bit smoother though. 3Signs – This site feels like liquid. Smooooth. *One complaint – the section you’re on should be in focus and all the others should be out of focus. They […]
