The newly launched website, Tryphone provides the ultimate assist in purchasing a new mobile phone, allowing for test drives of different models on their site through a virtual interactive design. Clicking on buttons gives a sense of the user interface and functionality, just choose which phone you’d like to try from their surprisingly well-stocked inventory. Also featuring reviews and side-by-side comparisons, it’s a good way to educate yourself before making a purchase which you can also do through the site.
Still in beta, there are still a few glitches with the site and the virtual usability of the phone could use a bit of tweaking to make it more realistic. However, it’s a great idea and I fully expect a seamless experience by the time 1.0 goes live. In the meantime, test out that cellphone you’ve wanted at Tryphone.
Eighties revivalism continues and when done right we enjoy seeing the era reinvented in design, fashion, music, etc. Better yet, a reissue celebrates originals and maybe even better still, adding new details to classics modernizes them for a fresh look with all the functionality we expect out of today’s gear. Specifically, I am talking about Burton‘s new Archive Series Collection, a line that pulls out some Burton originals, like the ’89 Safari Sweatshirt and ’91 Freestyle Shell and Pant (pictured above), and cuts them together with the latest techy materials.
Expect the Archive Series to land in Burton Stores sometime soon. You can also try to purchase them online at the Burton store (currently, it looks like everything is out of stock).
Surfing has long been at the forfront of our culture, along with the likes of skateboarding it has motivated and influenced culture and design.
Busting Down The Door is a great story which literally began the surfing movement, going back more than 30 years.
“During the winter of 1975 in Hawaii, surfing was shaken to its core. A group of young surfers from Australia and South Africa sacrificed everything and put it all on the line to create a sport, a culture, and an industry that is today worth billions of dollars and has captured the imagination of the world. With a radical new approach and a brash colonial attitude, these surfers crashed headlong into a culture that was not ready for revolution”.
“Surfing was never to be the same again”.

Perhaps the most important triptych by Francis Bacon (1909-1992) to ever appear at auction leads London’s Christie’s Post War & Contemporary Art Evening Sale on Wednesday, 6 February 2008. Appearing at auction for the first time and offered from a private collection, Triptych 1974-77 is the last in the great series that Bacon painted in response to the tragic death of his lover George Dyer in 1971.
Logitech the maker of keyboards, mouses, PC-cams, microphones, and all other computer peripherals is trading up on market chatter and speculation that Microsoft may want to acquire the company.
While Logitech is a mostly hardware company, this might actually be a good fit for Microsoft. Logitech also just unveiled its new line of peripherals at CES this week.
Many analysts have panned software companies making hardware acquisition efforts. This one makes sense though when you consider that Microsoft already makes many of its own computer peripherals. If nothing else, it might be a great bit of subliminal marketing with the company name being all over your desktop without you even realizing it…
Let’s wait and see…
