10 “If You Look Close Enough” Movie Mistakes

There’s a ton of hard work that goes into the editing of a movie. But even the editors can get a little careless at times. If you’re working with thousands of frames, sometimes you overlook a thing or two. The mistakes can be minor, and at other times the mistakes can be quite obvious. Check out 10 movies mistakes HERE.




Most Ticketed Cars 2008

Here’s a neat little report on the most ticketed cars of 2008 compiled by a third party research group for the insurance companies…

ISO Quality Planning, a company specializing in helping insurance companies identify risk, has compiled a list of the most heavily ticketed vehicles on the road, and lead feet everywhere can check it out.

The group analyzed traffic data on 1.7 million drivers and established the probability of a driver of a given line of vehicles being ticketed. The Hummer and Scion tC dominated the list, receiving 463% and 460% over the average, respectively. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Jaguar XJ sedan and the Chevrolet Suburban attracted a mere 11% and 16% of expected tickets. Given that both the Hummer and the Jaguar are high-cost vehicles, it flips the idea that a huge price tag automatically means more police attention.

Amazon’s Kindle 2.0?

Amazon will host a media event in the Morgan Library & Museum in New York City on Feb. 9.

“The holidays are still eight months away, consumer spending is down, and we are in the middle of a recession,” says Josh Martin, senior analyst with the Yankee Group. “But if they offer customers a good deal in terms of cost savings, the time may be right.”


Kindle is already a sleeper hit. It launched in November 2007, more than a decade after the first e-book readers, and more than a year after the launch of Sony’s critically acclaimed Reader, from which the Kindle borrowed an extremely legible E-Ink display. Kindle was widely panned by critics for its fugly, plasticky white looks, but heavy promotion on Amazon.com, plus an endorsement by Oprah, helped give it legitimacy — and the e-books business, too. Although Amazon has never released sales figures for the reader, the company has said that it was frequently one of the best-selling consumer electronics devices in its extensive catalog.

Metal Business Cards With An Articulated Hand

Typographer and designer Aehrich O’Dubhchon created these amazing business cards with articulated hands for the photographer and craftsman Todd Schellinger. Todd wanted some metal business cards for his studio Hand + Eye.

Designing for metal presents many challenges and opportunities. The goal of the project was to design something that would transform from one state of being to another. The end result was a semi-articulated metal hand that could hold onto an envelope or an invoice.
