Google Chrome Vs Opera Vs Potato

As a mindspace type ad Google put-together an odd advert called Chrome Vs Potato (see below), funny, but one does have to wonder what that has to do with performance benchmarking.

Now Opera have done a parody advert on the same idea, Opera Vs Potato. Proving that potatoes don't make for a very consistent browser speed test.

Harry Potter Linked To The Jewish Plot To Takeover The World

Some people on Iranian television would have it's viewers that Jews in Hollywood are using Harry Potter to take over the world. I am not sure how anybody could use Harry Potter to bring the world under their control, but I think this is a clear example that antisemitism is still very much alive in the world and not something that died with Hitler.

Octopus Guerrilla Filmmaker Steals Diver's Digicam

This Story is brilliant. Octopus steals camera, diver chases after octopus and wrestles it back.

The Pink Panther:The Pink Phink

In 1964 the first episode of The Pink Panther won an Oscar for Short Subjects. I remember watching this as a kid, but unlike a lot of things back then when I rewatch them and realise how shallow they where, this is kind of cool.

Social Is Social Again

AudioBoo is the new newweb2.0/wiki/facebook/youtube/twitter revolution we have all been waiting for apparently. This fascination with the one social site to rule them all thing is kind of silly. The truth is that now and in the future content on the internet is going to come more from users than professional content producers like paid performers. And indeed putting yourself online is nolonger extraordinary, but a normal social activity, hay! look at my video! my music! my rant!

Social media is just another medium for communication, and it is here to stay. Now can we please stop calling every new social media site revolutionary and get on with life!?

Simply Inspired

This is brilliant on several levels. I don't want to deconstruct it, just watch it.
