This L.E.D. Mirror is available from Suck for the very reasonable sum of £300. There’s some lovely stuff available from them. I might just buy on of their t-shirts. Always nice to walk around with a T-Shirt that has “SUCK” on it.

Air Texting. Walking to Run…

Tuesday, June 1st, 2004

The new Nokia 3220 phone has some fine funky features. Air Texting allows you to type in a message and as you wave your phone back and forth it spells out the message with L.E.D.s on the back of the phone.

The phone also has motion sensors and vibration settings to allow you to have more fun playing games. I guess force feedback is one feature and tilting your phone will move avatars in games. One person commenting on this news was guessing there’d be some interesting hacks for this. I look forward to seeing them.

Found a link on Donncha’s site about a good way to start running called the Couch to 5k running plan. You start off walking and then you run a bit then walk then run. Within 2 months you should be able to run about 3 miles without killing yourself. This was the plan I’ve been looking for to get myself fit.

Display Art reminding America of the wrongs it does and it beats you up.

Lori Haigh, a North Beach district gallery owner, bears a painful reminder of the nation’s unresolved anguish over the incidents at Abu Ghraib — a black eye delivered by an unknown assailant who apparently objected to the painting that depicts U.S. soldiers torturing Iraqi prisoners. Associated Press photo by Jeff Chiu.

The painting is in the background of the photo. It’s a great photo. There are others too at the above link. The woman has closed the gallery because she fears for her well-being.
