…It’s Things Thursday: PAPPA*PHONE?

PAPPA*PHONE

Hulger’s PAPPA*PHONE brings a touch of class to the VoIP telephone.

Cut from a single solid piece of American walnut (so that the grain of the wood flows from the handset to the base), each PAPPA*PHONE is handmade by Furni, and also incorporates a piece of solid hand-polished brass into the design, as well as laser etched details.

Since it works with all VoIP services (Skype, iChat, GoogleTalk, Vonage, Yahoo, etc.) and is plug-and-play compatible with both the Mac and PC, it’s as easy to use as it is beautiful.

Maybe this VoIP thing has a chance after all…

…It’s Website Wednesday: Purple Pedals?

Purple Pedals

In their continuing effort to prove to the world that they haven’t yet fallen off the face of it, Yahoo! has launched a campaign called “Start Wearing Purple” to emphasize the fact that they’re…purple?

Whatever the reason, one of their better purple projects is called Purple Pedals.

    Think: Bikes + Flickr + GPS + Purple +Holy moly, is this one cool ride or what!?

The idea was to give camera/GPS enabled bicycles out to webrities and have them chronicle the life of their bike with pictures that are automatically taken every 60 seconds, geo-tagged, and then displayed on a Yahoo! map.

It might not get you to switch to the ‘hoo, but it’s a cool site to check out while the search wars rage on.

…Flickr users don’t like Microsoft?

Microsoft Vs Flickr

To say that Flickr users aren’t exactly excited about the idea of Microsoft taking over Yahoo! and subsequently corrupting their user experience would be putting it lightly.

Currently, the Flickr group called “Microsoft: Keep Your Evil Grubby Hands Off Of Our Flickr” has North of 2,000 members, and over 200 photos have already been submitted.

It might not be pretty, but it’s definitely good for a laugh or two if you’ve never seen what a bunch of angry photo nerds can do with some time and a bucket full of motivation.
