Adobe CS5: New Content Aware Fill Tool
For all Photoshop lovers- some new goodness on the way in the upcoming release of CS5. It’s called the “Content Aware Fill” tool and is about 1000x smarter than your spot healing brush. It can now calculate a much more realistic visual of what is behind any object, so removing just about anything is now just a click away. Amazing!

Star Wars of Recycling
An interesting TV spot that takes a fresh approach to explain the importance of the all to often boring subject of recycling. Sadly not sure on the proposition of the end frame as the TVC is all the way from Switzerland.
Age Distribution On Social Networks
This super nerdy graph is based on US Google ad planner data and showcases an interesting perspective on age demographics among the major social networks. Showing some of the major players like Facebook and Twitter appealing to a much older audience.
Previously considered platforms for the young– more and more statistics are showing otherwise. This is fantastic news for alot of marketers.
Of note, Facebook’s audience has 61% of users over 35, while twitter is similar with 64% of users over 35. While Bebo & Myspace are very attractive for kids under 17, with 37% – 44% of their users in that demographic. So as you can roughly see from the chart, the 35-44 bracket is a clear percentage winner topping 11 of the 19 social networks.
Would be interesting to see how the stats compare within the Australian market.
Worlds Biggest Signpost by Nokia
A cool interactive installation from Nokia. People on the street send text messages directly to the live sign with their favorite places to visit, and the arrow moves to point to that location, and also provide the distance.
The installation was streamed live to Nokia.com, where all the locations were synced with Nokias good things map.
The State of The Internet
Anyone for some mind-blowing stats?
Forget dull powerpoint, it’s even harder not to love a bunch of stats when they’re delivered in slick motion graphics and future pop instrumental music. The State of The Internet, by Jesse Thomas. Perfect for any non believer of the power of the internet– enjoy!
