Clever Toaster Design at 0% Opacity

Check out this very cool toaster design. Sleek looking thing. Have you ever burnt your toast? Did you ever wonder why they don’t make a toaster with transparent walls – so you won’t get surprised by your toast that comes out too dark? Seems like such an easy solution. Well, Magimix actually did something about it. You can scroll down a bit more and see an older  concept of this, although that image looks just like a concept.  With the Magimix version it actually looks like it is starting to sell, although I am not sure.  You can watch the video below.

TOP 50 Facebook Brands of 2009 and something to think about

See how Top Brands have been utilizing Facebook Fan Pages for 2009. According to this slideshow: Coca Cola in first place, Starbucks in 2nd place (over 5 million fans) YouTube in 7th place and Pixar Animation Studio in 21st place. Pretty amazing information. You can check out the slideshow below to really see more details about each brand and fan page. If you think about on a different note, I notice something which I think is rather mind boggling. As of 27 December 2009 the Earth’s population is estimated by the United States Census Bureau to be 6,792,600,000 and as of April 2009 facebook users were up to 200 Million, which, if you think about it for more then 5 seconds and actually contemplate those numbers, you will realize that that is roughly 3% of the worlds population. GULP. Where is the rest of the world? Facebook users are a minuscule minority, a spec of dust amidst this huge world. Yet when looking at the computer screen from the comfort of our own homes, we think the whole world is here with us.
Something to think about.
