T-Mobile  announced its new Bobsled brand, a Facebook application that will let you make free, “one-touch” calls to any of your friends around the world. Facebook is apparently just the beginning for the brand, though. T-Mobile says Bobsled is aimed at “bridging traditional telecommunications and Internet-based voice and data services,” and it says it plans to expand the service in the near future to include video chat, the ability to place VoIP calls to mobile and landline phones, and even offer applications on both smartphones and tablets “regardless of the carrier that powers such devices.” No word on how soon any of that might hit, but you can try out the Facebook application for yourself right now at the link below.

T-Mobile has just announced it’s temporarily shuttering the recently launched VoIP service. A statement released on Bobsled’s Facebook profile revealed it is “voluntarily and temporarily suspending service” of its week-old app to “ensure that the Bobsled experience is clearly differentiated and is not mistaken for a Facebook created property.”  No word yet on when the service will be back up and running, but this doesn’t bode well for T-Mo’s foray into the VoIP market.

“This is actually my favorite,” is what Barack Obama said while revealing a handful of his current lucky charms to reporters. “It is like a little piece of luck.”

My friend Kaycee designed it and you can buy it (you wont believe how inexpensive it is!) at
Metal Morphosis
and btw, Kaycee told me “we did the Braille because we want people to feel the words, not just see them. Basically, talk the talk and walk the walk…”

Way to go, great work!

I just find this fascinating. It is a video composed of still shots (shot with a camera not a video cam), of long exposure shots. So each shot may be say 10 secs long, yet its captured into a single shot, that could then last forever or a split second. And combined in a carefully arranged sequence to create a story.

I guess what i like is the distortion of time.
