Obama Buttons for FREE!

Free Obama butonsMoveOn.org is giving away free Obama buttons by simply giving them your address (the free ones the top one). I submitted my info and buttons should be arriving in a few weeks. They have 2 other buttons for purchasing, but free is easier!

I still personally dig the Obama 008 buttons (“double O8”, the next James Bond) I got from TheMovement008.org so if ya want some extra designer point, go get those!

Watch the video above and be amazed by some dude jumping out of a helicopter (1:17 in) to capture a giant Marlin Fish!!! Go Aussies!!! That marlin must of been like “woa, what the…!

Viewzi

I’ve been playing around with Viewzi.com for a few days and must admit, it’s a visual pleasure to tinker with. There’s zoomii, Searchme, redzee, oskope, and a handful of other sites that intensify the visual sensors, but Viewzi definitely takes the cake in delivering high quality design within their interface and brand.

I could talk about them for some time, so I’ll just point my finger to their site, tell you to type in something like “food” then press enter and move your mouse around everywhere. Also check out their story through Viewzi.tv and their corporate site which isn’t at all corporate.

Speaking of pictures, here are two other interesting sites rethinking full screen picture viewing. Blowup and PictoBrowser.
