Video and screengrabs in this post: a first hands-on experience of the new Marvel Comics app for iPad, produced with Comixology (who produced a popular iPhone app). Word is that more than 500 titles will be available through the application at time of launch on Saturday. The pre-launch copy of the application I'm testing shows many titles offered at $1.99, and a number of selections also available for free. All the Marvel classics are here: Avengers, X-Men, Hulk, Spider Man, IronMan, Captain America, and a number of newer titles.
Ulule is a service a lot like Kickstarter where you get your friends and social circle to help you fund a project, though it seems as though it’s more of an international version. That said Julien Nantiec was tasked with creating a commercial for Ulule, illustrating all of the previously stated ideas.
Through the 1970's, Disneyland was looking to reinvigorate what had become a forgotten part of the park. Walt Disney's last big project before his untimely death was New Orleans Square and its two headline attractions, Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion. After the loss of the mules rides and stagecoaches, the Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland was the only remaining headliner in Frontierland, and even that was becoming stale. The contest to breathe new life into the old west was on.
By Stephen Fry: „It is a gorgeous spring day when I arrive at the coolest address in the universe: 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, Calif., where Apple has been headquartered since 1993. The campus, for such they call it, is enormous yet not big enough to contain Apple's current rate of expansion. An additional site is being designed and built. After stocking up on "I visited the mothership" T-shirts at the company store (we fanboys are pathetic, I readily confess), I am shown around the canteen, lawns and public spaces. It is right to call this a campus, for everyone looks and dresses like a student. I should imagine the only people ever caught wearing suits here have been visiting politicians.“
