Something wicked I’m preparing. Coming soon.
The Wrong House: The Architecture of Alfred Hitchcock seems like an interesting book. Here’s a photo from the set of Rope. The set looks simpler than I thought.
… and the telephones they’ll use. Paleo-Future
Phillip Toledano’s Bankrupt Offices. I too have seen quite a few — abandoned offices are the same everywhere in the world.
Mobile devices I owned. Left to right: An old Ericsson (the first cellphone I had), a Siemens C35 and a M35 (which ended up in my hands in quick succession), a Panasonic V3 (absolutely the best phone I ever had, I wonder why Panasonic quit the business — shame it went mute or I’d carry it still), a Zapp EVDO device, and a barely functional Nokia 5300 (a steaming pile of crap from day one — no battery life, no sound quality). The picture was taken with a brand new Sony-Ericsson V640. Let’s see how this one will work out. The Panasonic will be hard to beat: when I switched it on for this group photo, I was stunned by the display quality. Impressive for a low-midrange, three year old phone.
