Randomness, round 2
~ 04 February 2008 ~
I caught only part of yesterday’s Super Bowl, but of what I watched this was easily the funniest ad. To Tide’s credit, the concept of a stain detracting from an important event is an excellent tie to the product advertised, whereas some Super Bowl ads seems to lack any direct tie to the product.

Beautiful. Not sure I’d enjoy rocking or sleeping at an incline, but I can imagine this would make for an incredible centerpiece in a master suite.
No comment. Via Kottke.
Tom Fadial’s latest design for Erractic Wisdom is solid on grid, fresh on creativity.
Nicely executed site, good product idea too. (Though the New Stock badge looks uncannily familiar.)

In a recent tweet I asked if anyone knew of a good app or utility for viewing which files/folders were taking up the most space on my Mac hard drive. Within just a couple minutes I had several replies, most of which pointed to Disk Inventory X and WhatSize. (For the UI geeks in the crowd, this style of organization is known as treemapping, as seen on Newsmap.)
Skateboarding. Music. Explosions. Bliss. (Special effects courtesy of Spike Jonze.)
