Yahoo! Pipes!

leave a comment »

If you pay any attention to the Web 2-Oh crowd you’d notice this week is all about Yahoo! and its pipes. What the hell is it, you asked? No, no, it’s not a place you can unload your dump truck! Or is it??


In some sense, the Pipes are a lot like the Lego Mind Storm programming interface. It’s basically just series of interconnected blocks, but for web mashups rather than making robot move. To prepare for this post (yes I do do my homework from time to time) I put together a simple pipe that will let you to track any product(s) across all my bargain hunting feeds. Simply enter the product you are interested in and run the pipe. Subscribe the bargaining pipe’s RSS feed using Google Reader, and now you won’t miss any deal that come across all these bargain sites! Pretty neat, eh? There are a lot more you can do with Yahoo! Pipes. I highly recommend you login in and try it out yourself. Hooray to web 2-O.o…

Scaring Kids With Photo Booth

leave a comment »

If you have iLife06 and iSight for your Mac, you can help your children to some cool Halloween photography. All you need is PhotoBooth and a dark room. Simply select the X Ray effect, and get ready to scare the bujeevus outta yourselves. I recommend showing your kids some of these before bedtime. Sweedreams ensured. 😉

Here is a blog dedicated to the little people in us. It’s pretty amazing. It kinda reminds me of the Doraemon’s shrinking device. Hm.. childhood memories…

Here is the device showcased:

Moleskine Notebook

with 3 comments

moleskine-small.jpgThese notebooks might be the best damn notebooks ever made by mankind. I mean just listen to its promo:

“Moleskine is the legendary notebook, used by European artists and thinkers for the past two centuries, from Van Gogh to Picasso, from Ernest Hmingway to Bruce Chatwin…”

Although some of these claims are disputed, but I’m convinced that if Leonardo da Vinci were alive today, all his notes will be taken on a Monleskine. Yes, it’s that good. The only down side is my cheap ass Zebra ball pen doesn’t seem to do the notebook justice. Prehaps the finest paper only deserves the finest pen.

Imagining The 10th Dimension

leave a comment »

Check out this cool flash explainsion of all 11 possible dimensions of existence: the basis for String Theory. Might want to consider the book as well… If you still can’t get enough of String Theory, you can take a look at the 3-hour long PBS special: The Elegant Universe (it’s free!). Fascinating stuff!
