…It’s Website Wednesday: The Stray Shopping Cart Project?

Stray Shopping Cart ProjectThe Stray Shopping Cart Project is “dedicated to developing a system of classification that allows stray shopping carts to be identified based on the situations in which they are found”.

The system consists of two classes (false and true strays) and thirty-three subtypes that can be used singly or in combination to describe and thereby “identify” any found cart.

The goal is to use this system of formalized language to help people “think critically about stray shopping carts”.

Finally!

…Ferrari’s FXX Evoluzione is one bad beast?

Ferrari FXX Evoluzione

On the car scale, Ferrari is definitely at the top; and on the Ferrari scale, the Enzo is definitely at the top, which is why a special edition Enzo is no ordinary supercar. Called the FXX, it was sold only to “select” buyers, and was used by Ferrari as a test bed for development of their latest equipment.

Two years, and 20,000 miles later, they’ve gathered up enough data from the 20 cars to make an even better version of their wondermobile, and they’re calling it the FXX Evoluzione.

Again available only to a “select” group of buyers, the Evoluzione features 860 hp, a 9,500 redline, 60 millisecond shifts, a less invasive, more adaptable traction control system that can be adjusted in the cockpit on the fly, modified suspension geometry, and a new aerodynamic package.

Being a test driver for Ferrari doesn’t come cheap, but if you had the cash, would you turn down the offer? (Oh, and the $2 million it takes to own one comes with “a 15-member official team made up of engineers, electronics experts and mechanics capable of providing complete assistance to clients”. And you thought you had a comprehensive warranty!)

…My Dream App winners have been announced?

My Dream App

My Dream App, the Apple software revolution, is over. After calculating nearly 14,000 votes, three winners have been announced. Though they weren’t my top choices, Cookbook, Portal, and Atmosphere will soon see production as full-fledged Mac Apps, and the world should be a better place for it. My only hope is that some other app development teams jump all over the loosing apps, as there were a few ideas buried in there that I was really looking forward to seeing come to life. Congrats to those that made it, and condolences to those that didn’t.
