Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 – Browse for the Better

18 06 2009

Vou ser 100% sincero aqui: Internet Explorer é minha ÚLTIMA escolha para navegador, por vários motivos.
MAS depois que ouvi falar desta campanha, acabei baixando a a versão dele.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 - Browser for the Better

Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 - Browser for the Better

Aqui está a pegadinha da Microsoft: Para cada download completo do Internet Explorer 8 feito na página Browse for the Better, 8 refeições serão doadas para a ONG Feeding America, que distribui estas refeições para aqueles que estão precisando.
Na verdade, estadunidenses que estão precisando, mas quando se trata de erradicar a fome, pelo menos eu penso que não existem fronteiras no mundo.
Então, você só precisa baixar (usando a página oficial… clique na imagem) para fazer a Microsoft gastar dinheiro em doações. A contagem vai do dia 10 de Junho até 8 de Agosto, mas não deixe pra baixar outra hora, baixa lá agora senão você esquece.
Bill Gates é bem conhecido por ser um dos caras que doou a maior quantia de dinheiro para caridade, tem um press release oficial da Microsoft sobre a campanha, e eles nunca disseram que você precisa realmente usar o navegador para que seu download seja válido… então eu digo, mesmo que você não goste do Internet Explorer, vá em frente e baixe. É por uma boa causa e não custa nada.

Dole Bananas Ads

5 05 2009

Here’s something you would never see in Brazil: an ad campaign for bananas!

But in Japan makes absolute sense (the fact that there are ads, not this ad though) since bananas are expensive as hell there!

Disgusting Dominos Analisys

18 04 2009

Everyone must’ve watched this video by now, with former Dominos’ employees doing disgusting stuff on food that’s going to be delivered:

But I wanna get out of the mainstream opinnion, and raise some questions on the whole deal.
It’s pretty obvious how the video was associated with Dominos (see the caps and shirts). And while I personally don’t like Dominos stuff much, one has to wonder if this wasn’t something plotted by some Dominos competitor.
I know people are certainly capable of stupidities like those, but I also know that competitors may go to great lenghts to put the competition down, even more in times of crisis.
So let’s say another fast food chain promised a better paying job, or a big reward for doing a video like that.
Of course, it’s just speculation at this time, but not too far fetched isn’t it?
The problem as I see isn’t this particular case, but how the reaction it caused may in fact provoke such practices.
So, all things considered, I’m really hoping depite all, that this video is real and the employees were fired… because if it isn’t, this might be part of a way bigger problem we’ll be facing from now on.

This is why you’re fat.

3 03 2009

A very interesting blog with pics of food… food that if I ate, the title for me would be “This is why you’re dead.” 😛

This is why you're fat.

This is why you're fat.

And the worst part is: Some of the pics looks absolutely delicious!
Of course that doesn’t stop the fact that they would completely block my arteries with cholesterol…

Click the image or this link for This is why you’re fat.
Do beware though: if you have heart problems, if you’re on a diet, or for some reason you can’t eat greasy, high caloric, juicy sweet stuff, it’s kind of a torture for the eyes… xD

Tokyo – Lost in a Moment

15 02 2009

Interesting yet simple video made by letting a camera go around on a sushi bar conveyor belt.

Filmed by Dennis Wheatley and Stefan McClean.
Music with same name, by Shrift

Letting the video aside, there are lots of sushi chains that works just like that, with the conveyor belts delivering several types of sushis to the costumers. They are called kaiten-zushi.
You can either order sushis and other stuff, or you can pick the ones you find interesting that are passing by. The ones you ordered are marked so no one else gets it.

Usually, you pay for the ammount of dishes in your table. Very practical. I’ll make a post about them later on explaining how they work in detail…
