Wanna play with my snake?

If you have owned a Nokia phone on the last 15 years it would be practically impossible you don’t remember this classic game included on it: Snake.

That’s the concept for the newest N-Gage Nokia campaign, which includes a funny TV spot with the merit of not use any computer animations and other modern resources. Based on an impeccable, almost handmade, production and stop motion technique.

But the funniest thing is the website, that gobbles you up with captivating music – that in my personal experience translated myself to those never ending afternoons in front of my Atari console.

This doesn't sell you any particular product, but the video game experience taken beyond. So, let’s get out and play!

Web experiences

When surfing on Internet sure you have found, most of times coincidentally, that kind of web you simply can’t resist to share with your friends, with funny thematic, involving stories and impeccable performance.

Great Pockets

Your pockets are big enough to carry all the stuff you normally need? This includes besides your car keys and wallet, your mobile phone, iPod, PDA, GPS, CD’s, DVD’s, USB’s, PC and all the acronym names the modern devices have become nowadays. Not to mention all the incredibly variety of stuff women use to carry on their handbags.

At this point sure you may look like the old man on the photo, puzzled by the idea of carrying tons of gadgets with yourself. Sure you think you won’t be able to carry even a personal computer, but what about if you would need it? So Great Pockets by Henry Needle & Sons are definitely the solution.

Jealous Computers

Have you ever thought your computer may attack you? Motivations would be.
How well do you treat your computer? Why do you think they warm that much? What about if your brain should be forced to memorize large amounts of precise information and have them ready to be retrieved when required with just a key touch? Would it be capable? This web widely documents how computers have begun to rebel themselves, facing the mistreatment and discrimination they receive from their owners.

This websites are captivating enough not to let the surfer...

Sun and Ice in Vuosaari

Today, we had a wonderful day here in Vuosaari. After weeks of darkness and snow the sun came out and I decided to make some pictures with my cell phone (as my new camera is still not delivered).

I think it is really interesting to see the Sea frozen, especially if you are from the South. However, in 2-3 weeks it is going to become warmer here in Finland. Really looking forward!

Homesick for a country not my own

In 1996 & 1998, I spent a total of 11 wonderful weeks in Finland. I fell in love with the people, the food, the culture & the land.

When I am feeling especially "homesick" (several times/week!), I visit this website:

I find Niklas' photos to be breathtaking. I hope you enjoy them, too.

Experience a Nordic forest... online

One of the things that have impressed me the most has been the amazing natural heritage there’s here in Finland. The 70% of country’s territory is covered by endless extensions of greatly rich forests, unaccountable number of lakes (more than 187,000 they say), surprising wild inhabitants like elks or the less famous flying squirrels and of course the purest air you could ever get into your lungs.

It is obvious to think that one of the country’s most important industries is the wood and paper production one; representing around 30% of exportation's income. And it is exactly from the largest Finnish printing paper and other forest derivatives producer – also amongst the world's leading ones, that I have found this awesome website.

It’s an extraordinary piece of online communication, firstly because it meets several objectives at a time: to promote Finnish natural heritage, to evoke awareness about how to take care of our environment and over all – maybe the most important issue – it explains how to responsibly exploit forests; controversial topic nowadays, but this company has managed to complain strict sustainable forestry regulations, even the United Nations, Greenpeace and WWF endorsement.

Secondly because this web transports you to the very heart of an undiminished Nordic forest, explaining with an incredible high iconicity degree every single detail about wildlife. Unveiling secrets from the thousands of hiding natural processes happening...
