Androids Rise To Fame

Neat animation to illustrate mobile company Android’s rise to fame over the past few years broken down by continent. Apple may no longer be the monopoly it thought it was with so much competition on the market. I don’t know how this graphic compares to Apple sales but the visuals are pretty striking for Android. Plus it’s pretty to look at 🙂

My New iBike

I want me one of these, I think…

I have in the past been out on bike and using my iPhone to track my route or listen to music (when not on the road) and found the battery life draining away in both my phone and my body. This could potentially be a genius invention, or an incredibly dorky one. It’s such a simple concept, I can’t fathom why no one has thought of it before – using your pedal power to charge your iPhone. I like the design too. A little off-the-wall but stylish and functional. The indicators are a good idea and I’m glad they’re integrated as I find them being used less frequently by cars these days*

All in all, a great concept and I look forward to innovation like this being developed further in the near future.

*What is with newfangled cars and their lack of indicator functions? I have nearly been mown down four times this week by lazy ass drivers who can’t be bothered to adhere to the rules of the road and use their blinking (see what I did there?) indicators when turning a corner. It’s a simple flick of the wrist! Why I oughta!!! I will be using a simple flick of my wrist if I get to driver number 5, I tells ya! USE YOUR FREEKING INDICATORS!

Rain Rain Go Away

Bloomin’ miserable day today weather-wise. I haven’t left the house all day, but I did find a cool little app for iPhone which takes retro style photos with a variety of cameras and lenses. It’s called ‘Hipstamatic’ and is available from the App Store.
