Is your tie iPod compatible? Thomas Pink's is!

Yah! we are talking about the 'tie'.  Surely, if you can have a iPod ready shirt, and a iPod ready Levi's jeans, then why can't you have an iPod ready tie? Maybe it's time you get a Thomas Pink Commuter Tie then.

The 100% silk tie has a pocket on the reverse to hold a iPod nano or a small MP3 player and extra fabric loop to keep headphone wires out of sight.  Goes for UKP 49 from the Thomas Pink store. Isn't it easier to just make an iPod that plugs onto your brain and avoid all this?  We wonder... :)

This is one big advertisement for the iPod

Giant Apple iPod
 
This clearly has to be the biggest iPod advertisement ever, covering 893240 square metres; roughly equivalent to eighty football pitches. But what's perhaps more interesting is that this one even the aliens can see :)

 

The ad, which depicts Apple’s flagship iPod product has been constructed on the site of an abandoned mineral mine in remote western Australia. It has been in development for almost two years since Apple’s founder Steve Jobs acquired the location during a game of poker with (the late) Australian publishing and gaming tycoon Kerry Packer. > Read more

The Ultimate Dream Mac Setup

Ultimate Mac Setup
 

What a setup? There are three 30-inch Apple Cinema displays, a 23-inch display, 1.42 GHz Mac Mini, a G5, iSight, and a 17-inch Powerbook G4 in that. Where do people get this kind of money... We are soooo jealous. :P

Watch World Cup 2006 in HDTV

If you are in London, this summer you can watch the 2006 World Cup coverage and major Wimbledon matches in high definition  on BBC as long as you have  a HD ready TV or set top box and service from satellite or cable provider.

Though the first live HD program will be the opening World Cup match on Friday 9th June of Germany Vs Costa Rica, the HD broadcast trail will last for 12 months and will evaluate the technical delivery and the audience acceptance, starting from Monday 15th May. During the trial, BBC would also feature Prom concerts, it's natural history series Planet Earth and some drama documentaries also in HD quality.
