“Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.”
Mark Twain

Yeah, I know it’s ahead of time, but there can be times when I do this in time, right?
This is a great quote I love of Mark Twain.

Sorry for the delay. So many things have been happening around me and I can’t even timely reply to press request messages. (Those who follow me on Facebook can easily figure out what’s happening though.)

Phew! I was in time for the beginning of the new month this time.
I like the houses in Kaysersberg (in north-eastern France) and for this calendar I tried to mimic them. Hope you like it.

Thanks for all the positive comments and requests for calendar wallpapers. Sorry I got late again.
I think I’ll add a few more variations this time on my Flickr later.

“The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are.”
John Pierpont Morgan

Sorry I got late again.
A great quote. This makes me want to get out of a comfy place to challenge new things. So I designed a frosted window seen inside of a room. Let’s get out!

iPhone Dock Sketches

iHammock

I use my iPhone at work and at home. When I’m at work in the office, I can’t make it ring loud when there’s an incoming phone call or an email, so I change the setting to the silent (vibration) mode. But when it vibrates on my desk, it makes even louder noise than a beep, so I was thinking if I could make something soft to put my iPhone on so that it doesn’t rattle when vibrating, and thought that a hammock style would be fun. It looks like your iPhone is relaxing on a hammock, so I added a parasol that works as a solar power battery charger. You open and flip the parasol in the sun to get electricity and close and fix it on the hammock to charge your iPhone.
“iHammock”?

Just for fun again.

iAcqua2

Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a 3D screen that displays stereoscopic images of music visualizer and stocked photos when your iPhone is docked? It’s like a combination of my old ideas (snow globe screen and iAcqua).

This one tilts a bit when your iPhone is docked, making the speakers and the transparent screen float.
It tells you when there’s a phone call and an email by rocking from side to side.

How to control iPod Touch in Your Pocket

I’ve found so many people look for an easier way to control their iPod Touch/iPhone especially when it’s in the pocket. Then how about an iPod case with the old circle control button on the back side of it?

Mac Morph?

What amazed me most about the Morph concept by Nokia is that it came from Nokia itself, not by a daydreaming designer like me, meaning it’s quite promising.
I really like the material that is flexible enough to change its form. If that’s really possible,

Mac Morph?
first it could be used as a display,

Mac Morph?
second, fold it half and it could be used as a macbook pro,

Mac Morph?
and for some more other purposes,

Mac Morph?
it would be useful to read like a magazine,

Mac Morph?
and if it could be folded a few times, it could be an ipod.

Oh, am I daydreaming again?

Turn your iPhone into a desktop

I was amazed to see how Microsoft’s Play Anywhere works!
That technology could also be applied to something like this, I guess.

WiFi, web application and a Starbucks with rentable small office(?)

Web applications for iPod Touch and iPhone are now released by Google, which include search, gmail, calendar, docs, etc. I tried them a little and now the home page is already bookmarked as my portal site. It works fast!!! I even found it works faster than the apps installed in iPod. Amazing!

It works so well that I even think an iPod can go well without apps installed, which might have been the original plan by Apple though. With a browser that works, most of the things can be done. In the near future, graphic and motion apps will be available. Even fonts won’t have to be installed in your PC.

By the way, my commuter train now throws a campaign that allows us to use free WiFi for as long as we want once a day. It’s only for iPod Touch users. (There’s no iPhone in Japan yet.) With that service, I don’t have to buy a newspaper or magazine to read on a train: I can read them on the net. (Sometimes I have to pay some money to be a member to have a full view of the contents, of course.) Also, I can deal with Word and Excel documents, move the data and send them by email. With a small device, I can WORK on a train. I can also read the blogs I have to check.

I believe this is already a business that someone started, but I hope there’s an office to rent, which is equipped with a PC with a browser and a WiFi connection. You can choose a scanner, printer or fax as an option, and the fees depend on the hours or days you rent and the office size (from one for 1 person). Renting a cool office for yourself costs a lot, so there will be lots of people who want to rent a beautiful office where we even think they want to invite someone. How about an office like a Starbucks? I’ve seen many people talking to their customers or affiliates in a Starbucks store. Soundproof walls should be installed so that we won’t have to worry someone will hear our talks. And this is what I want: you can order a coffee from your PC and a clerk will serve you. The fee is automatically added, so it’s easily done. Or, there can be a bar counter where you can pour your coffee for yourself for free.

The data is stored in the web server, so other people can access it from other places. WIth that, you don’t have to be a freelance.
So what do you think? Or are there places like this already?
Cool office you can rent at a Starbucks?


Read blogs on iTunes: To use an iPod Touch as an offline RSS reader

Blog on iTunesI would be really happy if I could read blogs or RSS feeds on iTunes because that means I can “carry” and see them on my iPod anywhere I go. That’s important to me because there are so few “public WiFi” places around me. Using the iPod’s text storage function is not good enough because it has lots of limitations for viewing websites.It’s natural to think that an iPod connects to the net and save data necessary when it’s available and switch to an offline mode when WiFi is not available.
