Be.Interactive talkes about every interactive idea that roams the virtual world. I find my information in other blogs, forums, rss feeds and every other existing media.
A quite choking add from Quercus this organization acts by creating awareness about the environment problems that Portugal faces, and by presenting more environmentally friendly options. This campaign wants to point out the dangers of Global Warming, it’s signed McCann Erickson.
New commercial for Windows starring Vera Wang, Kevin Spacey, Bill Gates, Tony Parker, Eva Longoria,… . It all starts with the Mac vs. PC thing but shows the human site behind it all, great stuff.
Sensoa (the Flemish expert organization on sexual health and HIV) launched a new site called http://www.allesoverseks.be/ to respond to any question a young adult could have about sex or relations. I really like the design and functionality all though they should be more careful with the development cause there are some errors and dead links in there. There was one thing really messing up the site and the whole idea behind it “Bannering”. It’s really something you don’t expect on such a site, it should be really all about information and not selling of visa cards or bank accounts. From my opinion it’s really tricking those young adults, I could expect such a bannering campaigns on portals, social sites, game sites or anything else but not on a site that gives answers on sexuality and tries to warn them about the dangers of it. Maybe I’m a bit old fashioned but there are boundaries you should not cross.
On the fwa theatre I found this great commercial for Getty Center labeled “Heads”.
Strangely enough this is just half the blog post cause on my newly installed Chrome browser it just didn’t want to play, after 2 seconds it just stopped running while it worked perfectly in IE. It seemed as if I found my first real Chrome bug until I began to search for a solution. It actually appeared to be a problem with the flash player and not the browser itself. The solution that I found was to install Flash Player 10 release candidate and uninstall the current version 9. Below you’ll find the steps that I needed to do to complete the job.
2. Close and restart your browser.
4. Go to the following page and it should say “You have version 10,0,12,10 installed”
If you’ve followed the 4 previous steps you should be able to enjoy all your favorite YouTube/Dailymotion/… movies again
Today I went to the Volvo site to have a look at their offer and what I found their was for me the ultimate “getting to know” experience. The headline says “Find out about our new conditions in the way you feel most comfortable” and indeed this sentence says it all.
You can have a look at their conditions trough an excel file, a word doc, a YouTube Channel, a Facebook page, … . Any way you want they actually got it. It’s all quite simple but again the experience is just great.
Dita Von Teese will launch a new line for the Wonderbra, to promote this line she created a spot where she looks for the sexiness Gen. You can also have a look at the according site where you’ll find more of the new line.
This woman is really hot cause her commercial goes straight into the viral video chart with after a few days 41,856 views and more than 30 blogposts.
Lego made this movie for the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Miniman, It’s really nicely done and quite fun to watch. The also created a corresponding action site where you can find all kinds of fun things.
After being an unconditional fan from Internet Explorer all along last week I made the switch to Google Chrome. What Firefox never could; Chrome did in a weeks. Why I changed, well quite simple it runs much quicker than IE, when you click on a link it immediately pops up, you don’t have to wait a second. Yes it does have less features and functionalities but for me it does everything I expect from a browser. Let’s see what the next version of IE brings and maybe …
While I wasn’t really a big fan from the first commercial they made I quite like the second one, it even made me laugh a few times.
I’ve now looked at it 3 times and I still don’t know if I like it or not. One thing is sure everybody seems to have an opinion about the new spot from Microsoft starring Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld.
First I installed the Picasa Web Album which had many new features but one seems special at first sight, the picture preview which runs smooth as hell and looks good.
Other features like the print screen, the movies and other stuff are more updates but still usefully.
Much more impressive are the name tags, on your web album you can easily tag all the persons that are on your pictures. You just activate the feature, it scans trough all your pictures and everybody is almost immediately recognized, one last check and tagging and it’s done. You can now browse trough your pictures with just a name and when you hover over a picture you can see the nick names on the picture. Again really impressive work from Google Labs, they keep on surprising me …
One thing I can say, if you got lots of pictures and you want an easy way of looking at them, categorizing them and even create a web album, I can only say one thing. Just install it and you’ll see you won’t be able to work without it anymore.
The BC Dairy Foundation released a whole set of commercials / virals to show the consequences of not drinking enough milk. They seem to do just great stuff, after Get the Glass to promote the milk consumption in California now we got these commercials.
Actually just lay back and enjoy, as they are one by one great idea’s and a superb visual roll out.
I just posted my 2 favorite once, you can have a look at all of them on their YouTube Channel.
I guess this has to be the first commercial where they want to promote a car without ever showing it, but if you’re a guy what’s not to like about this commercial.
If you want to see a video instead of a comic book you can have a look at the following explanation about Google Chrome.
I’m still using it but didn’t put it as my preferred browser all though I’m close to doing so as I think everything is really fluent and It’s just what I need as functionality, nothing more … nothing less.
After I guess what was "a well deserved" holiday, back to business and what a start Google launched a browser, Google Chrome and of course I had to install this immediately to see that I liked what I saw.
The install on my Vista system had a little glitch, when I tried to click on "Accept and Install" button in my IE 7 I had ... nothing except an error, anyway I started everything over on my Mozilla Firefox browser it went all really fluently and all my settings where immediately imported from IE.
After the install, the usability here again I like what I got there, the navigation, the buttons, the few menu items, everything is really clean and smooth, I also like the fact that you got an immediate preview of the last sites you visited. I'll be most definitely be using it the next few days and I'll give you my thoughts about it as now I didn't experience it completely I just ran a little test that was quite satisfactory but ... let's see. The big question is will I put Google Chrome as my default browser?
If you want to know more about the birth, philosophy and technology of Google Chrome you can have a look at their comic book.
