I guess today is the day of portraits. Fast on the heals of McBush comes junk food Rosie. Without digressing into any possible implications of the chosen medium on the subject, I'll just say it's brilliant and amazing. I love it. And I love Rosie. Artist Jason Mecier has also created similar portrait of other celebrities which can be seen HERE.

They demoed a searchable drug database, along with pictures of pills to aid in drug identification - the first for any mobile device.

I was at the first ever Texting 4 Health conference at Stanford University last week and saw a presentation by a San Francisco startup called Kadoink. The premise is if you can blog it, why not speak it instead? After you create a Kadoink widget, you can post it to your favorite social networking site, or to your own blog, and people can access your rants, music clips, or anything you want them to hear via their cell phones. You can even call up a buddy (or conference call a few of them) and record that conversation so the rest of your friends can hear it. Check it out and let me know what you think!
With the iPhone SDK looming, developers are waiting with bated breath for all the details on March 6, 2008. I am particularly excited as it's almost a culmination of months of effort to help petition one of my favorite programs onto the iPhone. Epocrates is a medical program that's used by thousands of health professionals on a daily basis. It's an invaluable tool that provides instant drug information - and more - without having to be tied down to a computer. I just want to thank everyone who has signed the petition!
As well, I just did a brief interview with ePocrates last week in regards to the iPhone SDK release and they seem to be very excited to port over ePocrates to the iPhone! More news to follow as details about the SDK emerges.
The Yamaha BODiBEAT MP3 player uses an accelerometer and a heart rate monitor to determine your workout speed and accordingly matches songs to your pace. For example, when you run faster, the music gets faster. I'll hold judgment on this one until I can actually try it. It may be interesting.
It don't matter if you've got the money or not...bad taste is bad taste. Feast your eyes on this gloriously hideous Macbook Air done up in gold-plated crystals. Only eighteen of these "Golden Age" ugmo Airs will be made and sold at Selfridges. Via Shiny Shiny.
