Five for Friday | 五日(星期五)

Things that made my day this week:

The spectacular world of Irish Traveller graves captured in photographs on Instagram

Yahoo!’s TechPulse event released these interview vignettes with Jerry Yang and David Filo. It also marks the end of an era in Silicon Valley history.





The Manhattan printed telephone directory was updated on a daily basis in the 1940s

Rolex put together this video to highlight their silicon spring (that won’t be affected by magnetism).

According to Nikkei TechOn Sony looks as if it will be releasing the Xperia Touch. It marries a short throw projector image with Kinect like touch sensing, turning any flat surface into a user interaction.

It’s clever, but it won’t be cheap, mainly due to the short throw projector sales it could cannibalise.
