…Danny Kass likes yellow snow?

Danny Kass Zoom Force 1

How does Nike come up with the design for a snowboard boot like the new Danny Kass Double Tongue Zoom Force 1?

Apparently there’s a lot of weird mustard and yellow snow involved:

According to Danny,

The pattern is of a seventies flash back inspired by the music of that generation. With the old and the new we bring you a very limited piece to make you feel good!

In addition to the boot, Nike is also releasing an entire kit of products, including a lightweight shell and graphic tees:

…The MacMod Mod of the Year is a first?

MacMod Challenge

The 2008 MacMod Mod of the Year has been announced, and a Pre-AGP Mac running Leopard has been declared the winner.

While not quite as visually impressive as the other entries, which included a TiN’ed iPhone, a Cube with liquid cooling, a Mac made of Legos, and even a Mac shoved inside of an Xbox 360, the judges felt that James Little’s (aka jimjamyahauk’s) milestone of being the first person to get Leopard to run (or even boot!) on any pre-AGP Mac was definitely worthy of the prize.

Be sure to check out the site for more details on each of the entries, including build photos and detailed specs and info.
