my first cellphone

Found this in a shoebox the other day. Check that antenna – I would pull it out with my teeth before taking/making a call – circa 2002.

One of my favorite presents...

My grandmother knitted me these socks for christmas - take a closer look and see that they are identical from top to bottom, plus she knitted with a thin thread of nylon so that they have a snug fit! Love these, thank you Granny!

BassJump be hittin'

Now we're thumpin' - I finally got my hands on a Twelve South BassJump. Start up was super easy - my bass was boosted and preferences were optimized in literally two minutes. Oh, and check out the vintage-inspired design of the preferences - flawless!

Give it up for another fantastic product from Twelve South! A perfect holiday gift for the macbook owner in your life.


Magazine of the future

Mag+ from Bonnier on Vimeo.

The folks at Bonnier R&D and BERG have created a prototype of what the magazine of the future might look like. Great insights, and beautifully shot concept video (wonder what camera they used)...

DIY Shower curtain

Grain, a design studio based in Washington, took that idea of customization and applied it the Ty D.I.Y. Edition, a shower curtain set that provides a blank shower curtain as a “canvas” where you can draw your own custom designs on. The shower curtain is durable, recyclable, machine-washable, and more resistant to mildew.

MOG: Music service

Just finished up my 1 hour trail of MOG's new music on demand service - great experience, plus the "radio slider" is a great way to discover new music. If they offer a mobile solution i would be very tempted to subscribe.
