The Heritage

Check out The Heritage! A super sexy, multi-format table radio complete with docking for your iPod. Made with aluminium and real walnut veneer, this contemporary reinterpretation of classic European table radio is packed with the latest multi-platform digital radio technology providing coverage of DAB, DAB+, FM and Wi-Fi internet radio – as well as wireless audio streaming from your Mac and, of course, an iPod dock.

The Heritage is the latestproduct I've been drooling over from the fine folks at UK's Revo, an approved Apple ‘Made for iPod’ member.

Very nice!

Long Live Books!

There's been a lot of discussion lately about the demise of the printed word on paper. But deep down, I don't believe for a minute that books, magazines and newspapers will ever really completely disappear. Reissues, collections and box-sets of everything from vintage newspaper comic strips, back issues of old magazines and newspapers will always be in demand in both digital and tangible form. In the same way that TV never eradicated radio, books and coveted first edition hardbacks will remain as the definitive "proof of purchase" for collectors and purists alike.

I mean really, can you imagine meeting one of your favorite author's after a reading and asking them to sign your Kindle?

With that said, long live books! Long Live Books is a small Minnesota studio that produces hand-crafted BOOKS that serve as both protection for your laptop or iPad as well as a tried and true old-school, anti theft disguise.

According to the site: Every exterior detail of BOOK has been considered, from the linen book cloth to the decorative book headbands for an effect that provides bibliophiles with tangible protection for their electronic information. On the inside, a tailored 100% wool felt sleeve provides a snug fit for your device when BOOK is closed with the integrated velcro edge. The natural German felt is a sustainable and renewable material that has an innate durability and timelessness.

BOOK is a secure sleeve combined simply and elegantly with a hard case to provide double protection for your laptop or iPad.

Keep reading and Long Live Books!

Manual Espresso

Bringing the press back to espresso - check out this environmentally friendly, manually operated Espresso Maker.

Using almost zero electricity and enabling you to make great café-style coffee at home, the only enegry it requires is the amount of energy it takes to boil some water and then a little human-powered force to press down the arms of the machine.

Preserve is on going project by Mark Spurgeonto of Australia. The goal of the project is to produce a permanent visual record of hand painted building signage in his native land. Sweet!

As Mark explains on the site, many of these signs are being erased from our cityscapes either being worn away by weather over time, covered as buildings have been repainted, disappearing as buildings are demolished or replaced with modern signage equivalents.

The Preserve site is updated regularly with Mark's latest images from New Zealand and Australia and you are invited to contribute to this work also.

Very cool, especially if you're a typography freak like I am!

Enjoy: Preserve!

Go Faster Go!

You'd never guess it, but these big toys for big boys were at the height of their design during the 1970s – by sheer chance.

Mechanics and team members – not designers or marketing strategists – adorned racecars with all of those flashy stripes, logos, numbers and colors prevalent at any Formula One race today.
