Code reveals Facebook working on a music service named Vibes

Posted in Facebook by Conner Flynn on July 7th, 2011

This is interesting. The Skype install code points toward a music application called Vibes. This piece of code all but confirms it. Facebook will be launching a new application called Vibes. As in good vibes. It connects with a music download dialog in the page, apparently.

This news coincides with Spotify’s announcement that it is launching in the US. And a Spotify-Facebook partnership has been rumored. The “Vibes” name makes sense too: The Skype deal was called “Peeps”. I think we can safely expect a launch by the end of summer. This will be interesting to watch.

Leonardo da Vinci’s Backwards watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 10th, 2008

Leonardo da Vinci’s Backwards watchYou don’t see a watch that features the mug of Leonardo da Vinci everyday. It’s inspired by his backwards writing or “mirror writing”, which some believe to be a code. Others think he was just punking people in the future. The more likely reason is that Leonardo was left handed and preferred to pull a pen as opposed to pushing it across the page in order to prevent the ink from smudging.

And just like the writing in his notebooks, this watch does everything backwards. The numbers on the faceplate are written and listed backwards, and the hour and minute hands move counter-clockwise as well. That should make it a real pain to tell what time it is. The price is $36. That’s not $63 backwards.
