If I’m ever going to start a coffee shop, this will be my choice for coffee cups.
An interesting design resembling crumpled up Dixie disposable cups.
Dutch designer Robert Brandt(1946 Gorssel, The Netherlands) has been an interesting figure in ceramic design.
…works in the area between serious art and kitsch and sometimes balances perilously on the edge.

Adobe releases CS4
“The new version of Adobe’s flagship software product takes its first steps in using the graphics processing unit, or GPU, said John Nack, principal product manager for Adobe Photoshop.

Microsoft Aims to Redefine ‘I’m a PC’
“One new Microsoft commercial even begins with a company engineer who resembles John Hodgman, the comedian portraying the loser PC character in the Apple campaign. “Hello, I’m a PC,” the engineer says, echoing Mr. Hodgman’s recurring line, “and I’ve been made into a stereotype.”” For some reason this just sounds like an extreme poor idea to me. It will eventually draw more attention for Apple.→Link

Who has time for complicated watches?
David Colman:”It was one thing when the cellphone replaced the cigarette. But now killer apps have replaced killer abs, and the chicest parties throng with guys showing how they can make their iPhones look like Magic 8 Balls. It’s enough to make a man long for the days when all you heard from even the costliest accessory was the faint tick of a sleek watch.” →Link
Large Hadron Collider nearly ready!
Too many times I’ve read about the LHC(Large Hadron Collider) in science fictions.
