…It’s Things Thursday: Fuck This Book?

Fuck This Book

Fuck This Book is a collection of unaltered and untasteful images of “real public signs that have been mischievously altered by stickers bearing the most expressive of all four-letter words”.

What’s the message?

Thankfully, nothing: “This is not social commentary. There is no message. It’s not meant to offend, exploit, or embarrass anyone.”

Instead, it’s just meant to be a juvenile, profane, and timeless look at our lives in a world that has been persuasively transformed.

…COG loves the single speed?

COG Magazine

If you’re a fan of “one gear, fixed wheel, low-maintenance, highly-dependable bikes”, then COG is for you.

“COG is a visual journal captured from behind the bars of city bikers and messengers around the world”.

It’s filled with beautiful pictures, great reviews, and from the front lines stories, so if the fixed gear bike is your thing, then COG just might be your new best friend.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Custom Rolls Royce?

Custom Rolls Royce

Thankfully these pictures speak for themselves, because the details of this concoction of a car are scarce.

Custom Rolls Royce Detail

From what I can gather, it was made by Dilip Chhabria Design, and is, unfortunately, a genuine Rolls Royce underneath, though it now looks more like a modified Nissan 350Z with a body kit than anything else.

Features include the Rolls Royce grill, Lamborghini doors, a completely custom rear, and a bright red interior.

I guess they gave up on subtle!

…TwitterPoster ranks your tweeters?

TwitterPoster

TwitterPoster is a collection of Twitter profile pictures that have been sized according to their degree of influence on Twitter.

Though there are only three sizes, so it’s not a direct and exact representation, TwitterPoster does take into account the number of subscribers, as well as the number of tweets that each person makes, so it’s a good way to see who is utilizing the technology, and who is not.

Plus, there are different country specific posters, so you can see who’s big in Deutschland.

Did you make the cut?

…It’s Things Thursday: Facebook Gifts?

Facebook Gifts Blue Spheres

Today, the ‘book and the ‘soft joined forces, and Microsoft gave Facebook $240 million at a valuation of $15 billion for an expansion of their advertising partnership.

$15 billion?

A site that lets people poke each other and share pictures is worth $15 billion?

Yes; and here’s why: Facebook prints money.

Facebook has created a product that turns a 99.99% profit, has incredibly (almost infinitely) high demand, and costs nothing to make.

What is this mystery product?

Facebook Gifts.

What are Facebook Gifts?

“Facebook Gifts allows you to send personalized messages with icons to your friends on Facebook.”

Basically a .gif with a message, these “Gifts” are a perfect example of why Facebook is worth $15 billion (and probably even more).

Facebook Gift Unicorn

Take, for example, today’s Gift: A Unicorn.

I’m going to go ahead and assume that with a few MS Paint skills and a spare hour, I could crank out the unicorn image that they’re using.

And if I were Facebook, and I did go ahead and create this unicorn Gift; how much would I expect to get paid for my hour of work?

$10 million.

That’s right, Facebook will eventually make $10 million from this crappy unicorn .gif.

Not bad for an hour’s work.

Why?

I have no idea.

To clarify: I do know why they’ll make $10 million: Because people will eventually buy 10,000,000 of these crappy unicorns. What I don’t know is why people will eventually buy 10,000,000 of these crappy unicorns. I mean, it is a crappy unicorn after all.

I think part of the reason why Facebook can sell so many of these things is that they have hit upon the perfect price point. Users don’t see $1 as being a lot of money, so they’ll gladly skip their next iTunes download to let their friend know that they care.

If Gifts were free, no one would want one. You’d give them to your friends, and they’d simply add them to the pile of other free gifts. Put a $1 price tag on the Gift however, and suddenly, giving a gift is a momentous occasion. You’re spending your hard earned cash, and sending your friend something of value.

And hey, it’s not like everyone else is going to get the same one, right? Aren’t they at least part of a limited edition?

Yes; if you consider 10,000,000 to be a limited edition.

That’s right, 9.999,999 other people are going to get that very same ‘limited edition’ unicorn, and Facebook is going to get 10,000,000 one dollar bills added to their bank account.

Amazing.

Like I said, they print money.

And despite my despising of the Facebook Gift idea, I will say this: I’ll gladly plop down a hard earned Washington for one of these the day Facebook comes out with a Gift in the shape of a T-Shirt that says: “My friend just spent $1, and all I got was this lousy Gift”.

Hey, a guy can dream…
