  A Bit Liked  Melbourne Startup Weekend - Good luck to all those participating in this weekends efforts, a couple of us were going to join but due to exhaustion. MMmule– A site that allows you to get anything you want from anywhere in the world by rewarding a traveller for delivering it. Source Map – Track where things come from, from the start to end of production process. A Bit Learned If you have become semi popular in YouTube you could go to the Olympics in London for free We're not the only ones thinking Australia could do with a kick in the bum in digital advertising.

We're royally happy in the studio to be celebrating the long weekend, have a good one. A Bit Liked  The Bazaar - A marketplace to buy and sell creative objects. Presented nicely in a the oh-so-hip style of Pinterest. Terrible Twos - Our very own designer Jack Fowler collaborated with SouthSouth West in the Desktop curated exhibition Terrible Twos. We went down to celebrate his achievement on Thursday night at No Vacancy gallery, where all the work was being auctioned off for charity. Well done Jack! Smile - Perfect holiday, by Karim Rejeb - A cute, happy stop-motion video that just works. The new Foursquare - Let's face it the location-based app needed an overhaul, dying numbers and other apps encroaching on their territory. Luckily the guys didn't lie down and take it they've come back bigger and better. There's discovering things about your city, timeline-esque layouts and more. A Bit Learned Sometimes people do have exactly the same train of thought as you... Linked in could well be the 2nd most popular social network in Australia. We really really do want a mini-pig. 32 innovations on their way.

It's that time of the week again - happy weekend everyone. A Bit Liked Fujitsu Labs Colour Frame app -  An app that monitors the users skin condition over time, enabling them to assess how well that skincare regime they've been adhering to so strictly (uh huh) is really working out, we think this could be extended in some really smart ways. Coke's Stretchy Hand - A bit gimmicky but some nostalgic fun nonetheless. Always interesting to know about when big brands invest money into this kind of thing. 12 Things Inspired by Avengers - We haven't seen the movie yet (speaking of which we will only be watching movies in the most amazing cinema experience in the world from now on) but the blockbuster comic/ film series has inspired all-sorts from awesome nail art to wacky eye make up and cool looking lamps. We love the idea of taking inspiration from something and applying it to your own style. Anytouch - We damn near freaked out when we saw this, turn any object into an interactive experience, just watch! Instagram Camera - A real life Instagram camera, so covetable. This design has been floating around for a bit but now the Italian designer that came up with it has it up on indie-gogo for funding! Contribute so it gets made for real and we can all get one (thanks Dani) A Bit Learned 

  • Having lots of money really doesn't make you any nicer.
  • Applying every Instagram filter to your photo gets you this.
  • Sailor Jerry (the tattooist) was a crazy but creative old codger and Sailor Jerry's (the Rum) tastes quite nice with Appeltiser. Thanks for the party, Sailor Jerry's and Curious Film.
  • About some more companies tapping into the Quantified Self Movement we have been fascinated with for the past 6 months and why some people are totally against it.

  Welcome to the start of what will become regular weekly updates on all the ideas, launches, products and info that have kept us going in the studio as winter firmly sets in. A Bit Liked Aherk - A goal setting service by which you blackmail yourself with compromising images. You set your goal and deadline - if you don't achieve it Aherk will upload said picture to your facebook - thus humiliating you. Genius. Schemer - 'You're looking diabolical' - so said schemer when we logged in...It's a site built for discovering what happenings are kicking off in your area, but it's got quite a neat little interface and if you really like being active and doing stuff it's useful for making your own  schemer lists. Indcredible Things - A nice blog for discovering unique bits and bobs. We especially like their focus on Incredible Pinterest Boards. House Beautiful's Pinabble Issue - Making it easy to Pin straight from a magazine House Beautiful have created Pinabble content in their issues through an app. Linking the physical to the virtual has become more recognised as one of the most compelling ways to engage people let's see if this one takes off.
