Very funny fake commercial mocking the $10,000 Microsoft Surface. (Via Daring Fireball.)

The cloud of promise

Posted by Tim Riley Mon, 07 May 2007 13:22:00 GMT

Lenovo won the design competition for the Beijing Olympic torch. I did not expect to see something like this when I hit their web site today! Their design reminds me of old scrolls, burning incense, and is a pretty red colour :) It’s a cool mix of old and new.

Along with the design blog on which they made this announcement, Lenovo has several other blogs as well. Following their acquisition of some of the IBM products, the company’s done an impressive job of raising its profile in the west, and I look to them as one of my inspirations for NetFox’s own community dialogue efforts.

I what you?

I don’t know if it is just me, but whenever I see “I love you” written as “I <3 you,” I always read it as “I icecream you.”

Please bring me my wine

If I were a bartender, whenever I’d get bored, I would answer drink requests with “We haven’t had that spirit here since 1969.”

Check it out. I think this service could be a great leads tracker for our office.

Hans Petter Jansson: ‘I think we should just blow up Pluto.’

Incidentally, who cares about the text books? Wikipedia is up to date!

Volgograd Girls

Posted by Tim Riley Thu, 27 Jul 2006 00:42:00 GMT

Chavez wows Russian media:

The Komsomolskaya Pravda tabloid notes that Mr Chavez “took notice of Volgograd girls” and quotes him as saying: “I have always liked Venezuelan women, but looking at yours, I can see that I have lost a lot.”

Hugo wouldn’t like it but this quote reminds me of the US President as portrayed by Billy Bob Thornton in Love Actually.
