    It’s 3am and the big event is in full swing. By 3:40am, it’s pretty hard to see the moon as it hides behind the shadow of the Earth. Come 3:50am, I think I’m done and head inside to bed. The big event, for me at least, was over. The blood-red eclipse wasn’t too impressive to… Read more »

  • Did you know how slow you run?

    Did you know how slow you run? Well if you’re anything like this guy, an average guy running in a suit, you’re pretty god damn slow. During this 50 yard sprint he topped out at 15.9mph which seems quite fast at first glance for a fat guy in a suite, then you overlay a selection… Read more »

  • The (completely made up) iPad Review

    The embargo is over and I can finally announce that I have not had an iPad to play with or review for the past week (not like that Andy Ihnatko fellow). Yes, I signed an embargo to not say that I didn’t have an iPad before the release. I’m terrible about contracts (I have 8… Read more »

  • Too much Tango made me think I was a Ninja but I’m not. I’m just Gary.

    Tango, the orange flavoured fizzy drink from Britvic PLC, has launched a new advertising campaign that really caught my eye.

  • Ever had a Dicken’s Cider?

    This has the DNA of the Doctor Pepper adverts, with that underlying, uncomfortable humor that had me rolling around on the floor at work for 10 minutes straight. If you’re easily offended, turn away, if not you may also like this Durex Viral video…. roll tape!

    We’ve been having fun with a cool little tool that converts JPEG images into ASCII code. When we crop and size this image to 60×50 this tool churns out a remarkably similar representation of the image. The further away you stand, the clearer it becomes. Here are some we made earlier of some friends. Me,… Read more »

  • Zombie car advert

    I once saw this ad a few years back. My boss took me into the office to ask me what the car was in the advert. I suggest you get close to the screen with the sound on as the car is quite difficult to see…
