Bookmark Friday – 03.20.2009

Posted in Computers,Just Cool,Music,web by Joe Colburn on the March 20th, 2009

Is it really Friday already? I don’t know where the week escapes to, but this week I have a bunch of bookmarks for you. I’m also trying something new this week. I’m going to link out to a Twitter account. Because I just came up with it, I’ll use a sponsored link for a Twitter contest this week and future links will be given to people who send the following:

“@joetech I want that free link in your Bookmark Friday post : http://www.joetech.com/suggests/bmftw”

If 100 people respond, I don’t think I can link to everyone, but I’ll take at least one or two of you and link to your accounts.

This week’s (sponsored) Twitter link: Murray Newlands is having a Twitter Contest to win a Casio EX-Z8O Camera and an Xshot Camera Extender.

Now let’s get on with the rest of the links:

The Big Bang Theory and The IT Crowd – These are two awesome shows that I learned about late in the game. In seasons 2 and 3 (respectively), there’s plenty to catch up on if you’ve never seen them before. The Big Bang Theory is a show about a group of genius PhD-holding super-geeks and the hot blond across the hall who hangs out with them. Sheldon’s Shirts is a site dedicated to telling you where you can get all the t-shirts worn by one of the main characters, Sheldon. The IT Crowd is a UK series about the IT department of a largish company and is pretty that’s-so-true hilarious if you’re in IT.

SixthSense – Did you watch a movie called Minority Report? Maybe, like me, you drooled over the way Tom Cruise operated a computer in mid-air without any physical input devices we’re used to. If you did, you’ll love this. It’s yet another home project I need to find time for.

iDaft – This is your addicting time-waster of the week. Now, you can be just like Daft Punk. You know… bigger, stronger, faster, harder. While I’m writing this, it’s not coming up for me, a victim of it’s own popularity, it seems.

BooksFree.com – I’ve got this free month membership to BooksFree.com. I haven’t tried it yet, but it looks pretty good. Name a book I should check out.

Cajun Crawler – It’s like a walking Segway. Maybe a bit slower, but pretty fast for what it is. It’s pretty cool student-developed tech.

Road Ready Flying Car – We’ve seen some concepts, but this thing is street legal and should be selling soon (for way more than I can afford). It’s a car, but also a mini plane. The wings fold up and it runs on regular old unleaded.

The Gilligan Factor – It’s smart and definitely original. Every see something on TV that just doesn’t make sense? Post it to this site and read the others.

400+ Creative Business Cards – If you’re a designer, you’ll truly be inspired by this.

Pwn2Own Day 1 – Don’t take away my geek card, but I hadn’t heard of this competition before yesterday. Anyway, all the big browsers got pwned in the first day and one guy pwned three of them, taking home three laptops and $15k. I need to brush up on my white-hat.

Even though this is a Bookmark Friday post, it is sponsored in that the one link at the top is a sponsored link, so I should throw one of these badges down here just to be extra clear:

    Some interesting links. The 400+ Creative Business cards is a good one for me personally as I’m totally into graphic design.. (self-taught)…

    Thanks for sharing.

    Karl: I love that one, too. I haven’t had the time to go through them all yet, but soon… Very soon.
