100217 links

I am trying out Google’s browser (Chrome) on my home computer – Over all I like it but it does not allow me to seamlessly integrate my Delicious account into it like Firefox does (this is because Delicious is a Yahoo service).

red dot award: product design 2009: Bocci’s 22

The 22 series is a range of electrical wall accessories, which reinterpret a traditional product. An innovative installation system allows mounting of elements like ports, dimmers, switches, telephone and data jacks, or cable and loudspeaker ports flush to walls or wood panels. Using traditional cover plates is no longer necessary. In an unobtrusive and aesthetic way the elements integrate harmoniously into the architecture. The 22 system is CSA approved to UL standards.
