Bacon Alarm Clock

 

Image Here is a stupid invention.  The Wake n' Bacon is a prototype for an alarm clock that wakes people up to the smell of cooking bacon.  Every night before you go to bed, you need to set up the wake up time and also put a piece of bacon in the "clock". Is this how tough our lives have become that we need stupid things like this to wake us up. 

I am quite happy with my 5 dollar radio alarm clock that wakes me up to some nice music.  If you snooze, you probably will start a fire with this thing.  I am sure this will be a big hit in this country.  

Design of Corporate Logos

I have added a new section to the site, that contains articles about the history and the design of corporate logos. I have always been interested in the meaning of the design behind some of the corporate logos. In some cases like Cisco, the idea behind the logo is fairly obvious but in case of Fedex, you will wonder why the spent over a million dollars to come up with the logo and why the Nike logo cost only $35.

This section of my website list some of the world's most famous corporate logo and attempts to discover the history and the meanings behind them. I hope you find this section entertaining. This week, we take a look at Swoosh, the Nike logo.

Netflix is an online video rental service available in the US. With the standard Netflix subscription which now costs 17.99 a month, customers can rent upto three movies at a time. Netflix is completely operated using the postal system and the NetFlix website. Customers queue up their DVD's using the NetFlix website and Netflix sends the movies. Included with the movie is a pre-paid postage envelope in which the movie can be returned. Once a movie is returned, NetFlix will send the next movie. Customers with the standard plan can typically keep three movies out at a time, but higher and lower plans are available. Netflix was the leader in this market by a large margin, until the retail giant Blockbuster decided to move into this space. Blockbuster's entry into this has changed the dynamics of this a little for now. Which service would I recommend and why?
