Google Chrome Faster Than A Speeding Potato. (video)

By defintion, Google has always been about speed and innovation, in this video they illustrate what exactly they mean by “speed” in terms that most of us can understand.

“At this point, Google realizes that simply talking about browser speed isn’t enough. They have to show you.Alongside the latest beta release of Google Chrome, the company has made a series of videos that intend to do just that. The Rube Goldberg-ian setup is fairly amazing. While the speed test videos themselves aren’t out just yet, Google has posted the making of the video. It’s a must-watch.”

One good hour Spent: The Last Lecture (video)

Randy Pausch was a successful. but definitely not famous young American professor of Computer Science at Carnagie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.  In 2006, he learned that he had Pancreatic cancer- a form of cancer currently terminal - and set his mind to making the most with his time left on this earth. He concentrated on living right, and things that really matter.

A year later, in 2007, he gave an upbeat lecture based on his conclusions and life learning. The video of this unassuming, young, vibrant man living with a life sentence quickly became an internet sensation: in an era dominated by short viral videos, Pausche’s talk to a roomful of students sitting in an auditorium is a sensation with over 12,000,000 million views on YouTube, and counting.

Perseverance and spirit (video)

Springtime is again upon us, with its eternal promise of better days ahead, greener pastures, and flowers blooming. It is also a perfect time to renew the spirit and remember that perseverance is the drive that keeps us going, and pushing towards our goals, no matter what.

At the 1992 Barcelona Olympics, Derek Redmond, a Canadian sprinter lined up to run in for a place in the finals of the 400m. It was a race that ended like no other, and a video fit to see even on the sunnier days.

Apple changes the media landscape again (video)

Just as they did with the Macintosh, iPod, iPhone, and iPad, Apple is set to change the world again. Yes, while this may sound to some of you as some loud hyperbole from an Apple True Believer (which I admittedly am), fact is that no other company on the planet is more admired, more inspirational, or more single-handedly responsible for re-defining the way that we interact with digital music, hand-held devices, and our perception of what a portable device is and what it can do.

Now, it is Apple’s turn to influence how advertising on the go will look, and from where I am sitting, they are sitting quite pretty and the announcement of their “emotion+interactivity” mobile advertising platform is about to rock one more industry to the core. For all of you whose careers are touched by advertising and media, take a seat. the ride is just getting started…

The Ultimate Sports Man Camera (video)

As life is getting more and more digital, people have been looking for better ways to capture their experiences and share them with the world through photography and video. Well GoPro, is an American manufacturer who states modestly that they are “the leading activity Image caption company”, and who are we to argue with them?

The company produces a wide range of cameras that allow you to capture any and all outdoors activities in a unique way and professional manner. Before this note becomes too much of a press release, we will limit to highlight the fact that GoPro’s camera’s are way too dope for you to leave behind weather on a surf-board, off road racer, or scaling down a skyscraper of mountain.

Dope!
