Cult of Mac reports on cool zoetrope ads being used in Tokyo subways. The idea is to put a whole bunch of images on the subway walls adjacent to each other, and as the subway passes them you see a movie, kind of like thumbing through the pages in a flip book. What a cool idea!
Congratulations to Dave Winer for two years of non-smoking. Wow. Glad you're still with us, Dave, and not just for your excellent blogging.
This is interesting, AlwaysOn reports Starz has partnered with RealNetworks to provide a video-on-demand service. $13/month for unlimited movies. This is the first time someone has tried a subscription model for VOD over the 'net, I predict it will work.
I'm now using SnapperMail 2.0 (beta) on my Treo 600. Not an earth-shattering upgrade, but nice. In fact, I like nice; I didn't have to re-learn a whole new UI or anything, it is just better in a few important ways. If you have a Treo 600 this is the application to use for email. In fact, if you don't have a Treo 600 you might want to get one just so you can run SnapperMail :)
Have you seen the new Apple PowerMacs? Water cooled! Dual 2.5GHz on the high end. In addition to the performance improvements, the other new thing is a faster DVD burner - now 8X. Wow, I want one! (And please give me credit for not saying, "wow, these are cool" :)
And here we have - a TV wristwatch! When you absolutely must have "reality" intrude on your reality. According to the review the battery lasts an hour. It is really small, but still too big to practically fit on your wrist. Oh well, it is cool.
Adam Curry reports "The producers of 'Gilligan's Island' are teaming with the producers of the "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" to bring you The Real Gilligan's Island'." And one of them could be you! Unbelievable, but inevitable.
