Cathal shows how insanely civil serviced the new An Post mobile top up is.

Paul points out an interesting report commissioned by An Post about direct mail marketing. Looks like someone in Amárach has discovered the Cluetrain as the report is called “The Future is a Conversation” or else they had to gently introduce An Post to the concept.

Rate This Toilet is back and flush with new reviews. Badoom.

Nialler says invest in Minotaur Shock.

Teehee or oooer, you decide. CloudSteph points out RTE‘s Olympic gallery almost shows nudey bits.

Photobooth. Nice idea for events. But everyone has a camera these days.

A fab book on how the street finds its own uses for things in Thailand.

Interesting take on piracy and getting coverage of the Olympics. Olympic committee continue with their “we’re dicks, here’s a takedown” tactics online too. They’ll never win. Or learn.

A great example of how to get your company in the news with a simple survey.

I’m not so sure is this iPhone holder stylish or actually nerdish. Too pocket protector for me.
