Kanye performed on SNL a couple days ago and here's the product. As WDIR mentions, the pinnochio deal at the end and break into the finale is power.

Ye is also really pusin the fashion with this one. Check out that jacket. It's like MJ leather jacket mixed with peacocks and inspiration from his spacey Glow in the Dark Tour outift.

Skinny jeans for everyone!

Mozilla Presentation

Thursday, December 11, 2008 by innovative_edge

So, I hinted last week about my Mozilla presentation. Basically, I talked about Mozilla's history, how they innovate, and where I think they may go next. I illustrated how Mozilla innovated by involving the class in helping me create add-ons for my space ship just like developers create add-ons to enhance the capabilities of the Firefox browser.

Check out the pictures!

To continue from my hints last week: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Near Field Communication (NFC) technologies have been around for a while.

Visa uses both technologies in it's new Visa Wave technology that it is working to implement in it's cards. Nokia has created a phone called the 6121 Classic that is RFID and NFC capable, but both Visa and Nokia are going in the wrong direction. RFID and NFC are the right direction, but not with credit cards and personal information. People will not be quick to adopt carrying a cell phone loaded with bank and personal information.

However, people would be quick to adopt a phone that could interact with their environment and link them instantly to the best information about products and events around them.

This is where Mozilla comes in with Fennec. Fennec is Mozilla's prototype mobile browser that could one day be built with the purpose of ubiquitous computing using a RFID and NFC Capable phone.

If it were on an iPhone, it might look something like this:

You would wave you phone in front of a concert or event poster, the RFID tag on the poster would be a unique code or number that would identify with a server that could instantly feed your phone with information intended by the creator of the tag such as adding the event to your iCal, Tweeting to your friends about it, a map, or link to buy albums on the iTunes store.

If Mozilla can jump on an opportunity like this before Apple does by using building Fennec to intuitively incorporate these capabilities, they could be onto a whole new business model of royalties for each swipe and transfer of information from an RFID tag.

Think! The possibilities are endless!

For more information, any posts tagged "mozilla" or "mozconcept" will contain more process information on this presentation and idea.

Baggu bags are eco bags for whatever you want. Shopping, groceries, or school books. This season, they've put a great new play on their bags by selling their bags as sustainable present wrapping solutions!

What does this all mean...? Hmm, I wonder!

Lightweight Derailleur

Wednesday, December 3, 2008 by innovative_edge

Lightweight, known for their bicycle wheels, has now developed a no-holds-barred rear derailleur, that is 50g lighter than even the ever premier Campagnolo Super Record.

At $1,200, it's not cheap, but I bet it shifts supreme. I mean, look at those KCNC pulleys. I can only imagine that they are using ceramic bearings and that you would probably feel noticeably less drivetrain drag just because of that. I may be exaggerating a bit, but it is super cool.

The biggest problem with this derailleur is that it costs more than most people's bike. You would have to have one pretty posh bike in order to rock this jewel. But that's why you'd be buying this...
