mmm iphone UI

there are a few things from the iPhone UI I'ld love to try to implement on a normal html website. Might have to try them out myself - wonder if Apple would be upset with someone reusing their 'design' (or the concepts anyway) in a different context.

  • the 'slider' for on/off (boolean) type fields - the iPhone has these pretty 'slider' buttons for yes/no on/off etc fields which could probably be implemented with a tweaked version of the Yahoo UI slider - would need some nice images for the 'background' and the slide image. Would need to be still accessable by keyboard tho for tabbing through - wonder if it's possible.
  • 'flicking' a page up and down. guess the only way to do that in today's browsers would be to embed the site into a control of some kind that could handle the 'flick' and click/drag functionality

    o for awesome

    Friend of mine who I used to work with in NZ found this gem of NZ tv programming on youtube

    David Tua, a NZ boxer, asking for an 'O for Awesome' on the Wheel of Fortune game show. Anyone know when this was aired? Looks kindof 1990's, but I'm not sure.

    (updated, as the original YouTube vid was pulled for some reason)

    Always good to see someone do a LOTR rip off.. and Flight of the Conchords rock anyway, so it's a pretty funny combo

    pretty in print

    I have been so tied up with taking and editing photos, I forget the
    simple pleasure of printing an image to look at. Here's some I printed
