Cow Clicker

Posted without comment.

“You get a cow. You can click on it. In six hours, you can click it again. Clicking earns you clicks. You can buy custom “premium” cows through micropayments (the Cow Clicker currency is called “mooney”), and you can buy your way out of the time delay by spending it. You can publish feed stories about clicking your cow, and you can click friends’ cow clicks in their feed stories. Cow Clicker is Facebook games distilled to their essence.”

I love, love, LOVE David Lanham & Louie Mantia's Flurry icons for OS X. iPhone-like rounded-squares for pretty much all the apps that sit in my dock.

Flipboard for iPad

Beautiful social news gathering tool for iPad. Feeds are “curated” using Twitter lists, giving buttloads of flexibility. (Sadly the social part is buggered at the moment, as they didn’t account for all the iPad users out there)

Unrelated: New goal in life: Create a product that is cool, then get Adam Lisagor to make the promo video.

Check in for charity

Check in for charity

Interesting promotion. Adverts on the Muni asking you to check-in on foursquare to cause donations to some fund.
