A friend of mine has one of these laptop sleeves from Hard Graft, and it pairs quite nicely with a sleek aluminum Macbook Pro. I can imagine it quite nicely slipping into the LL Bean Hunter’s tote – I just might need to request these from Santa.
Imagine a nice, thick felt (100% pure new wool), with leather accents (Italian aniline dyed). This year, Hard Graft is offering an add-on pocket for any extra doodads you need to carry along with your laptop.
ColorChange by Indivigital is a really awesome app. If you ever wanted to repaint a wall in your place and were unsure about the color to use, this app is the answer. Here is how it works: Take a picture of the wall, then select on the portions you want to paint. It’s smart enough to know trace around pictures, and objects that may be in the shot and you can use its tools to select and erase what you may not want to have colored. Definitely worth the $2.99.
How do you read content these days? I am obsessed with the Kindle for iphone, but I think the actually kindle looks a little pretentious.

This is pretty crazy. The Chembot, a blob of goo that moves by changing its shape. Through inflating and deflating different areas, it has the ability to navigate over and through challenging terrain, ie squeezing through tiny holes, and shit, I thought nano particles was crazy this is the real life blob. Pretty freaky
Editors decided to step it up using Google Street View for their new album In This Light And On This Evening, produced by Mark Flood Ellis (U2, Sigur Ros, Depeche Mode). Basically, you browse the street view and the maps to listen to the tracks. I have to say this is a really great approach to making it interesting and fun. I have had the album for a couple of weeks now and it’s in heavy rotation. In This Light And On This Evening takes you back in time, as it leaps forward.
You need to forget about all the vinyl, toxic poison plastic toys you have been collecting lately. Metal is the new vinyl, and FullyVisual makes it happen. It started as a side project and quickly evolved into a full-time gig.

Check out But does it Float, a site with a collection of amazing overhead shots of natural and unnatural events. From devastated forest to waterways, definitely worth the look. Here’s the lowdown on this photo….
“Each of these swirling clouds is a result of a meteorological phenomenon known as a Karman vortex. These vortices appeared over Alexander Selkirk Island in the southern Pacific Ocean. Rising precipitously from the surrounding waters, the island’s highest point is nearly a mile (1.6 km) above sea level. As wind-driven clouds encounter this obstacle, they flow around it to form these large, spinning eddies.”
