That’s Why Girls Are Good – TMD

Today’s Ten Minute Delectable came out of a poker game last week.

A good friend Marielle came through with some of the finest sweets… The kru was like damn gurl…” her reply, “That’s why girls are good”.

That phrase stuck in my head, so here it is brought to life this afternoon.

Made this during my lunch break today.

My wife Gina is also in advertising. 12 years actually. This poster was inspired by her.

She’s helping out on a new account, and within the first five minutes, she has ALREADY been thrown under the bus by colleagues.

Advertising is BRUTAL…. but we love it!

10 Minute Designs – TMD

Inspired about hearing that The Polish Ambassador was playing a gig at the Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco this week, I knocked out a quick poster to promote the show. In less than ten minutes, then I posted it on his FB page.

Which has inspired yet another idea, 10 Minute Designs, TMD. The goal is to make a poster everyday in less then 10 minutes.

Let's see how that works out.

Apple iPad: Steve Jobs Unveils the New Apple Tablet – ABC News

The Apple iPad has finally arrived.

The Apple chief is set to unveil company’s highly anticipated innovation.

After months of buzz about a tablet-style touchscreen personal computer, Apple CEO Steve Jobs today announced the company’s new iPad. Before the famed CEO even opened his mouth to say a word, the crowd gave him a standing ovation.

Calling it a “truly magical product,” Jobs said the device could browse the Web, let users send e-mail, share photos, watch videos, listen to music, play games and read e-Books.

Much like an iPhone, the iPad has a touch screen that zooms in and out of Web sites and a virtual keyboard. It also orients to portrait or landscape viewing, depending on how you hold it.

Jobs said it will be half-an-inch thick and weigh in at 1.5 pounds. It will have a 9.7-inch display and include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

When Jobs said the iPad will have a 10-hour battery life, applause burst from the audience.

It will run iPhone apps on the fullscreen and emphasize gaming. But he continued on to show off its talents as an e-reader.

Demonstrating a New York Times app for the iPad, Jobs said it “captures the essence of reading the Times.” In addition to maintaining the typography and columns, it integrates video and navigation tools.

Earlier this month the company e-mailed invitations to reporters asking them to come view what it called “our latest creation”.

Though Apple was characteristically quiet on details before today’s unveiling, industry watchers said all signs seemed to point to the announcement of a device so hyped it had been dubbed the “Jesus” tablet.

“With the iPhone, you kind of nibbled at information,” said Gene Munster, a senior research analyst with Piper Jaffray. “This would be like a full meal.”

Apple Tablet Could Provide Publishers New Way to Approach Internet

Munster expected Apple to announce its multimedia tablet today and, along with it, provide a new way for publishers to approach the Internet.

In addition to announcing the tablet itself, Munster expects Jobs to announce an iTunes-like way for tablet users to download and consume newspaper articles, magazine stories and electronic books.
