Wallpaper* cuts with Victorinox

If I think of a Swiss Army Knife a remember my time at the army (an obligation in Switzerland).. not good this is. But hey, it is at the same time a solid Swiss product and can be very practical if you think of MacGyver. Further, Wallpaper* now shows in a cooperation with the designers James Joyce and Jamie Cullen, that a Swiss Army Knife can even look quite fancy. Run to the Victorinox store at Bond Street in London and buy one (£70)!

G20 in pictures

The G20 summit last weekend in London is finally over but well documented on flickr. A lot of impressive pictures were taken. Find them here.

London by Walkman

In the time when I was working in London I often listened to music in the Tube (not through a Walkman though). If I’d had mapped my music journey’s they could look like Sony‘s new advertisements for the Walkman – every station is a band. This great advertisements were done by Saatchi & Saatchi Australia. New York, London and Sydney by Walkman.


Orange and T-Mobile To Trial Mobile TV Service in UK

Pretty cool! … unfortunately I am no longer in London : (

The idle 3G spectrum in UK has been the subject of idle speculation for some time, and mobile TV trials have been promised, and now Orange and T-Mobile UK will jointly pilot a new mobile TV service in West London using NextWave’s TDtv solution. The pilot, scheduled for the second half of 2008, is supposed to show how mobile operators share widely-available unpaired 3G spectrum and a TDtv broadcast network. A similar trial has been done in Bristol in UK before, with four operators (Orange, Vodafone, Telefonica and 3).

During the six month trial, users will receive 24 high-resolution TV channels along with 10 digital radio stations.

Fiat 500 launch on the London Eye

The new Fiat 500 has been winning award after award (e.g. european car of the year 2008) for its charm and retro look as well as for its reasonable roomy and security features. Now Fiat has chosen an extraordinary place to celebrate the launch of the Fiat 500: They placed one of the vehicles into a capsule of the London Eye where it will work circuits for the next two weeks. Great idea to show the size of the car. Does anyone know how much they paid for this? Or did they just take an special package of the London Eye offers?
