Although I’m very much a child of the 80′s, I still find my nostalgia bone tickled by this lastest spot in the ongoing charm-offensive from Internet Explorer.
My historical dislike of Microsoft products aside, this does help IE ingratiate themselves somewhat to those of us now in their late 20s and early 30s (exactly the same age as the web’s core movers and shakers – funny that?!).

Today saw the announcement of Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm and with it, the jewel in the crown of George Lucas’ empire – the Star Wars franchise. With plans to release several new films in the series, many fans are worried what shape these new films could take in the oversized mikey-mouse hands of the Disney Corporation.
Whatever happens, surely it can’t be as bad as these shameless brand tie-ins?

To say I’m a sucker for large-scale Lego creations is putting it mildly. The latest creation from Dave Kaleta has the catchy moniker of The Tesla Handheld Directed Energy Projector – or ‘ray gun’ to you and I. Merging Sci-Fi and Lego – a potent geek mix indeed.

An iTunes voucher is the gift of choice for the grandparent that knows that an MP3 is not a Japanese sports car and a download is not a type of pickup truck. So the sight of Apple’s ‘off-the-shelf’ gift cards, in their various denominations, are becoming more common at checkouts throughout the world.
Not the most exciting gift I think you’d agree. So it’s nice to see this print campaign by Publicis Brussels took a rather more original view on the availability of music at your local supermarket.

It’s the game that’s become the Smart Phone Generation’s ‘Snake’. Angry Birds is the addictive time-waster that’s had everyone hooked for the last year.
With such worldwide popularity, the only surprise is that it’s not been highjacked by magpie-like ad men sooner. Well, credit must go to Saatchi & Saatchi for providing a very well thought out, and executed ad, which ties in perfectly with T-Mobile’s message. Only bad things is, like the game, you want to reach for the mute button after a only a few seconds.

Life is all about compromises. Especially if you live with someone. And sometimes there’s just not enough space for those items deemed ‘unessential’. So, more often than not, the larger relics of one’s youth are replaced with more sensible options.
Well, things are changing. The space-saving pioneers at Chevillotte believe that keg parties and dinner parties can co-exist. Introducing the convertible pool table.
Available in a range of styles to suit most homes, these real life ‘transformers’ can become a regular dinner table or work station simply by raising the level and reversing the top. Although it is recommended you move it’s balls before you do so. So to speak.

How do you convey safety in a car ad? Peaceful sleeping babies? Smiling mothers gazing contentedly over their shoulder towards a happy 2.4 kids? Well, this amusing spot for the new Land Rover LR4 by Y&R New York takes a slightly more ‘truthful’ approach.

The Royal Wedding is almost upon us and every fashion magazine is poised to get the first snaps of what Kate Middleton will be wearing on the big day. But what about after the wedding? I’d imagine the future Queen might need something a little more comfortable for her honeymoon travels?
If Kate is truly to take on the mantle of the ‘People’s Princess’ then surely a hoodie is the perfect traveling companion? And who better to provide this limited edition garment than the trendy ‘toff’ label and self-proclaimed ‘University Oufitter’ Jack Wills. I’m sure they’ll go down a storm at St Andrews Univeristy, if nowhere else.

The Palace are so keen to ensure that the Royal Wedding doesn’t appear to different from the average British wedding, they’ve given Kate & Wills their blessing to do what many other soon-to-be-wed couples are doing up and down the country – spend an afternoon in John Lewis with a scanner, compiling their wedding List.
Chad’s Eye View has uncovered an exclusive screenshot of Wills and Kate’s Wedding List. There’s something for everyone. although I’m not sure where the barcode was on some of the ‘gifts’. Click the image to enlarge.

Nestled into the granite of a Phuket hillside, this Thai residence is stunningly elegant example of what a large sums of money and some very talented individuals can do. Architects Adrian McCarroll, Waiman Cheung & Jamie Jamieson have certainly created a ‘dream home’. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised to see 007′s latest squeeze raise herself slowly out of that infinity pool in the next Bond film.
