I don't think I'd be very happy with this kind of advertisment.

Wow he discovered Robocup which has only been around since 1993. Cutting edge stuff here.

Slashdot's not a blog.

Sounds a lot like Cool Hunting ('Cool Hunting: finding things in the intersection of design, culture and technology that excite the imagination and inspire creativity'). Quick, huntforcool.com is still available!

This site is okay, but, yeah, it is a little too similar to the Josh Rubin site that hangashore mentioned. And it features Cirque du Soleil, which is just.... just HORRIBLE.

On a similar note: Awesome! and Product Dose.

And I really like William Gibson's Pattern Recognition, too.

The format is familiar, but I thought the content was unusual enough to make it worthwhile.

I suppose I will plead guilty to being easily impressed. My apologies.

My, how cynical and jaded we are. Thanks, Sibrax. I like the site.

Yay me.

I don't own an Ipod or a Mac laptop. There went about half the posts.

Musicwise? I know to listen there to determine I won't like it.

I could go on, but my lack of coolness must be blitheringly apparent at this point...

If you think you're cool and have to tell me about all the objects that make you so, chances are you're not.

I like pancakes.

Uncrate and it's "sister" site Outblush do this as well, although they're exclusively consumer-oriented.

Sibrax, Loved the site. It's fun looking at new trendy stuff, new designs. I enjoyed it. Thanks. :)

I notice that every site has started to look like old winamp skins. Gradients, little "rivets" and stuff.

Call me old fashion but I still prefer content to drop shadows...

This site has the same new "cool" stuff that every other "look at me" site has/had.


Nice looking and all, but hardly any different than a lot of other stuff already on the web.

Too clean, i like messy.

RRRRRRR, messy.

I think it's pretty neat, but admittedly, I don't get out much.

I read one post and found it contains a lot of rubbish. The PINEL & PINEL - LUX BIKE isn't a bike available in 51 colors but just a ($6000!) suitcase for a regular Brompton folding bike. They can't even read the original site.

Read the P&P site again - the trunk comes with a bike.

site is like a glossy design magazine. They only hold my attention for so long
Artsyness for the 'good design Ipod fetishist " Benetton types.
