Motorola Stunt: A phone for those heavy workers

June 26th, 2010

As there are a lot of people out there working under critical and heavyweight environment, it’s very impossible to tell them to carry around a delicate and fragile iPhone around, when they are wearing dirty gloves smudged with soils or cement. Motorola and Mike teamed up for Dirty Talks to see how their new phone copes with the harsh activities of these gray-collar workers. A very fun video, especially lol-able at the end. Damn I wonder if that phone will still ring in there…

What a 'supposed' 5-year old thinks of Team Fortress 2

This is not drawn by a 5 years old kid, on his/her understanding of Team Fortress 2. By looking at the long picture, I think he/she has a better understanding of the game than I do. Also, if it really was drawn by a 5-year old la-le-lu-lo-li, isn’t that wrong? I mean, at the age of 5, getting exposed to such “violently” cute game…

Care to avoid jets full of zerglings when going to Korea

Care to avoid jets full of zerglings when going to Korea

In the name of gamers’ spirit, Korean Air has slapped Starcraft 2 liveries on 2 of their Boeing 747 jets. Talk about marketing going overboard. This seemed only possible in South Korea, where Starcraft has become something of a ‘national sports hobby’ for the Koreans. The crazy move was unveiled at a big Starcraft media event in Korea. Along with the announcement is a sponsorship deal with fast food chain Lotteria. I wonder what the agreement is about, or maybe they’re the ones responsible for the awfully scary in-flight menu of the Korean Air snapped at bottom.

Half million disc were killed (maybe) to create the sea of obsolescence

What 160 Brits did with the CDs and DVDs that they collected, was to create CDSea, a view of waterway illustrated using compact disc gathered. Pirated or not, there’s bound to be some interesting content over at Long Knoll Park in Kilmington, England. But I doubt the content can be read under such exposure and abuse, even if you found a method or time to actually go and read all the contents of all the discs. But it still is a shocking view. The illustrated waterway even created optical illusions of disc to me.
