…It’s Movie Monday: Big Buck Bunny?

Big Buck Bunny

Blender is an open source 3D modeling software, and to help promote the fact that it is a suitable environment for professional level 3D animation, Blender created an animated short called Big Buck Bunny.

Big Buck Bunny is a big rabbit with an even bigger heart, but when three rodents start to harass him, something snaps, and he enacts his revenge in a typically cartoonish fashion:

If you’d like to see how they did it, then check out the Big Buck Bunny website, where you can download the source files for the movie and more.

…It’s Things Thursday: Something?

SomethingStore

Are you the type of person that likes surprises?

Then you’re probably the type of person that would like the SomethingStore, a website that sends you “something, an item selected randomly among many things from our inventory, for $10 (free shipping) and you will find out what your something is when you receive it”.

What could this something be?

    It may be something you need, something you want or something you desire. (Though it also may be total crap.)

    Yours may be a cool gadget, rare book, table game, handmade necklace, reverse clock, box of gourmet chocolates, set of shiny shower curtains, popular video game, big-box retailer gift card, the latest version of a software, a set of kitchen knives, a pair of designer jeans, garden tool, kitchen appliance, unique home decor item, electronic equipment, magazine subscription, office supply item, or…

    Your something will most likely be brand new, though it may also be refurbished or antique.

So SomethingStore can send you anything?

Well, besides “items or services that are illegal to trade in United States”, yes!

Sound good?

Then discover your something is today.

…It’s Things Thursday: MacUpdate Promo?

MacUpdate Promo

Last year, the MacUpdate Promo included $234.80 worth of Mac software, including Forklift, RapidWeaver, Swift Publisher, MemoryMiner, Yep, XMIND, iStabilize, PulpMotion, and more.

This year, the MacUpdate Promo is called the Parallels Bundle, and features $474.76 worth of Mac software for just $64.99, including Hazel, Art Text, MenuCalendarClock, Leap, StoryMill, Typinator, DVDRemaster Pro, Sound Studio, BannerZest, and lastly, Parallels Desktop.

Since Parallels Desktop normally sells for $79.99 by itself, this could turn out to be quite the deal if the unlock point is met.

Fear not though, as last year, over 27,000 bundles were sold, meaning that this year, they “fully expect to reach all 3 unlock milestones during the 2-week span of this event”.

Is this a deal you’re willing to pass up?

…It’s Things Thursday: Nimbus Cloud Computer?

Nimbus Cloud Computer

The Nimbus Cloud Computer “works like a PC” only it’s “better than a PC” because it’s free. Instead of paying for the Nimbus, you simply allow them to show you an ad while using the computer, and it pays for itself. If you don’t want the ad, you can also pay a monthly fee to use the Nimbus ad free, but where’s the fun in that?

    A Cloud Computer is a re-imagination of the idea of a computer. We think that an ordinary computer is too expensive, too complicated, and too much for what most people want to use a computer for. What we did is put all of the costly and complicated pieces of hardware and software into our data centers. You then use a smaller, simpler, much less expensive device that’s always connected to the internet to control your computer. We think this is a much better way for you to do just what you want with a computer.

The computer comes with a keyboard and mouse, and you simply provide a monitor and Internet access, and you’re on your way.

Is this the future of computing?
