After ‘Advertising for the color-blind‘ (a post I wrote earlier this month) it’s time for gaming. Joystiq has an interesting post on the topic. I have the same color sight deficiency Conrad is talking about and some games are indeed hard to play. I haven’t played Rockstar’s Table Tennis yet but it seems indeed to […]

I already mentioned last week that I thought Photosynth is one of the coolest things I’ve seen lately. There was another idea on how Photosynth’s technology could evolve in the future, which I wanted to share. Imagine you stand in front of a building and you would want to know which building it is? Image […]

As I wrote in January, I just loved the Sony Bravia – bouncing balls – commercial. This is probably one of the few commercials you actually look forward to watch. The new Sony Bravia ad was filmed in Glasgow where paint bombs where attached to a deserted building. 70.000 litres of paint, 358 single bottle […]

The Silly Season, had to repeat that, always found that a great name for what it stands for. There’s a good description about it on (yes it’s about Formula 1). “… ‘silly season’, the annual merry-go-round of driver changes…” So this is the part of the Formula 1 season when everyone starts guessing who […]

Geert at Brandopia just wrote about this cool gadget for WordPress. I hand’t seen this before, but looks pretty cool. I installed the gadget on my page and played around a bit with the gadget. Although I don’t think I’m going to use it to blog with – way too small, no links… […]

Pietel sent me this link a couple of days ago. The Yah Hooray website has a collaboration project ongoing where you can upload your own web2.0 redesign of famous logos. There are already loads of logos on the site, and some of them are real beauties. And although it’s not the best creative of all, […]

Sign of the times? The latest version of the Monopoly boardgame comes with VISA branded credit cards instead of paper money. Apparently it’s part of an international deal between Parker and VISA, which designed the mock debit card and its electronic machine. Branding opportunities… [Via MIT AdLab]

This is so cool! We saw a live demo of Photosynth last week in the US and I must say I’ve really been waiting for the moment to blog about this. I thought it was awesome. “Photosynth takes a large collection of photos of a place or object, analyzes them for similarities, and displays them […]

Traditional vs. new media, traditional vs. interactive advertising, television vs. internet, … it almost sounds like we’ve created 2 separate worlds. Television networks do research that proves that television still works, the research from internet companies will tell you the same about internet. Just to set things straight, I do believe the internet is underestimated […]

Recent ITV research shows that only 1 out of 8 viewers believe the ads shown on television. So not only is nobody looking at television commercials anymore, the ones that do look don’t believe them. I don’t think people stopped believing, I think people just stopped caring. Why would they care, it only happens on […]
