Do you watch and listen to music videos on YouTube a lot? Perhaps you should take a look at a JukeFly…

Are you the kind of person who goes to YouTube when they want to listen to a song?  Be it for listening to something new, on a friends advice, or perhaps just to listen to a few songs you already like but don’t have your music with you.  Well if that is the case then you should probably check out JukeFly.

I’m going to start with explaining what JukeFly aims to achieve and the fundamentals behind the service and then follow up with some screenshots of its interface with annotations as to what does what and where.

Jukebox aims to do one thing really well, make the music you want to listen to, available wherever you are.  Ok sure there are plenty of other services which share this aim such as Spotify, my personal favorite Grooveshark, and indeed Windows Media Player now supports streaming to anywhere you can log into you Windows Live Account.  However, one shouldn’t dismiss JukeFly off the bat as there are a couple of quirks which might make JukeFly a better choice for some users and here they are: Read more

Designs Which Inspire – Yanko Design – 100% Design

100% Design LondonWith 100% Design occurring from tomorrow until the end of the week at Earls Court 2 I felt that I should post something design related. Yanko Design is a fantastic source of information when it comes to design. I regularly draw inspiration from their concept postings, general news and indeed from several purchases made from their site and I feel it is a site worth sharing. Still describing their content is not going to do them or their designs justice so here I will list a few of my favorite pieces which I have come across over the years (probably with more weighting on their more recent posts).

“Sugar Jesus” – The Band That’s “Breaking into You!” [Interview] [Free Download]


Sugar Jesus? Perhaps the next big thing according to several outstanding reviews. It is quite amazing that a band with comments such as “Indie Disco Kings” and “The forerunners of Synth Pop’s thriving underground!” from reputable names such as TimeOut and ArtRocker aren’t already causing mass audio induced euphoria during the daily commute. They are my dirty little secret that I and their loyal listeners can turn to in times when we just need to escape for a wonderful 3:30s (approx).

Ahem, in all seriousness and music review jargon aside, Sugar Jesus really could be one of the next big things to take up residence in that place which brings “silent” humming and foot tapping to our lives. Sugar Jesus has a good blend of “mainstream factors” which apply the easy listening required for instantly likeable music, whilst maintaining a feeling that I can only describe as an unique. You really have to listen to it to understand, but if you do in the future, or perhaps you already have, you will definitely understand the emotion that I am doing my utmost best to describe. They are a band which definitely have something at their heart, and that something…is Damn Good! Read more

Find the Perfect New Wallpaper and Boost your Productivity

1 What are the advantages?

(if you don’t care or just want to know about the site skip to the next heading)

What one does at one’s own computer is completely dependent on scenario, necessity (some of us) and mood.  The first two aren’t something which you can easily change.  If you need to look up how much that item of clothing costs or if you need to send some emails before 5pm  you can’t change the fact that you are using the computer for that reason.  These factors are inevitably going to affect your mood when you approach and are using your computer so having your computer in a way which is going to help your performance is obviously advantageous.
