Why Has No One Done This Until Now? Hmm...


Another one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" iPhone apps. Nice one Publicis, Brazil.

Your Very Own Facebook Book. Hmm...


French mobile phone and Internet service provider, Bouygues Télécom together with their agency DDB, Paris launched a new app that lets you save your favorite online moments in a personal book. Two days after launching the app, they had 15,000 fans and the limited edition of 1,000 books was gone in only an hour.

Spike Jones Masterfully Directs Arcade Fire's New Video. Hmm...

Getting Your Read On 5 Minutes A Day. Hmm...


If you're like me, your days are pretty hectic. Which means your nights and weekends are set aside for catching up on the remainder of your life and perhaps some sleep if you can fit it in. Reading, sadly, is probably only lightly penciled into your "things to do if only I had a billion hours in a day" list. Which is perhaps why some smart people from, wait for it, Mamaroneck, NY (Yes, it's a real place) created DailyLit, a service that let’s you read books by email or RSS (so on your laptop, iPad or smartphone) in under 5 minutes a day. They have bestselling and award winning titles, from literary fiction and cooking to business, autobiographies, science fiction and more. The beauty of this service is that you can set when to get your installment sent to you. Did I mention it's 100% FREE? Yup, pretty awesome. I think my first stab will be Stewart Copeland's Autobiography Strange Things HappenWhat'll yours be?
