Cloudwash is a new web connected washing machine by Berg. It is a very elegant solution which, like all good design, makes me wonder why no one thought of this before.
If you have ever gazed dazed at the default web colors wishing they were not a garish mess, perhaps you might appreciate Colors. An more elegant open source replacement of the defaults.
Desktime is a shared spaces and co-working site that helps shared offices accept payments and find people to share desks. It is also really nicely designed.
Tree of Life Print. Really like this print!
Typeform is a pretty awesome polling service that is clean and uncluttered.
SERIOUSLY! Have you checked out Strip Search?! It is a reality internet tv show for webcartoonists and has been my addiction for the past few days. I have been loving the competition so far and especially getting to know the cartoonists.
I first heard about Vivian Maier on the This American Life special The Invisible Made Visible. Aside from all the other wonderful stories and performances on the special, was the work of a photographer I had never encountered before. If you haven’t heard the story about Vivian Maier’s photographs, I won’t ruin it here. I would urge you to download the special ($5 digitally) and watch the amazing story unfold.
So Flickr has announced that all users will be getting 1TB of free photo hosting. That is pretty sizable free storage! Add to that, they have also announced that all images will be available at full-size and the deal gets even sweeter!
I used to use flickr way back before Yahoo bought them and for the most part I really enjoyed the service. I even paid for it at one point, before I realized that I don’t like renting where I put my precious images.
This news is a game changer in terms of photo storage and hopefully realigns flickr as the serious photographers web storage option. Even their home page allows you to calculate how many photographs 1TB holds (The answer is, it is always a lot of photographs!). I was so jazzed, I quickly picked up a refurbished Cannon Rebel T3i Body (for $351.99) to replace my ailing Rebel XT now almost 10 years old.
So, my advice is dust off your Yahoo account and get snapping!
PlaceIt by Breezi allows you to put anything into an iPhone window super-convincingly. SWANK!
