Nissan Leaf iAd Demo

First example of Apple’s much-anticipated mobile advertising platform, iAd.
Apple will sell and hosts the ads, giving 60% of ad revenue back to developers. Unlike most mobile ads, which kick users outside of the application they’re currently using, iAd keeps users in the same app. More information here.

Ok, so this might be the weirdest app you’ve ever seen.

And you’ll probably download it.

EpicWin is an iPhone app that puts the adventure back into your life. It’s a streamlined to-do list, to note down all your everday tasks, but with a role-playing spin”.

Airplanes indoors

When it comes to mixed media, the bigger the mix the better. Artist Fiona Banner has suspended an entire British Aerospace Sea Harrier nose-down from the vault of a gallery at the Tate Britain, rather like a food-stall hawker might hang a Peking duck. The effect is akin to slaying some wild thing, laying low and imprisoning what should be soaring free.

Super heroes take on the past.

Here are some new jobs for Spiderman, Batman and the rest of the spandex-clad do-gooders we’re all so familiar with—World War II. The series is by Agan Harahap. The black and white treatment makes makes it all the more inspired, for it charms the rightbrain, while the logical left side is stunned by the absurdity of it all.
