Instaprint - The Location Based Photo Booth for Instagram
The rapidly growing Instagram phenomenon, if nothing else, has been an all-but-subtle reminder of one thing for sure – people love photography. And like every other technological advance its senior, Instagram – although an incredible digital tool inspired by an age-old hobby and trade – has sparked a desire by some to see the beloved “Polaroid” style images translated into a tangible format. Welcome, Instaprint. While the concept of printable Instagram photos is not entirely new, it is Instaprint’s user-friendly approach that separates it from the pack. Each Instaprint box will house a set of geo-localized tags and hashtags. Instagram users can tag their images with hashtags or geo-tags and the wireless internet-enabled Instaprint will shoot out an inkless, instant picture. Clocking in at roughly the size of an average lunch box, Instaprint not only shines through its nostalgia-giving image quality but also through its expertly thought out aesthetics that combine injection molding to cast a round-cornered pristine finish.
Check out more KONY 2012, Lil B's New Mixtape, and Halo 4 below....
There is no denying that the reach of social media has affected our planet, connecting individuals at a pace and personal level that could never have been predicted. KONY 2012, a year-long project created by Invisible Children, intends to use this revolutionary social tool to spread the word and make known Joseph Kony, the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in Uganda. For over 20 years, Kony has abducted children and forced them into warfare to serve his own motivation for power. The purpose of the KONY 2012 campaign is simply to make him famous, not so that he may be celebrated, but because the idea that knowledge is power. If the world is aware of his agenda, we will be motivated to stop him. Throughout this exceptionally compelling and well-made 30-minute video, director Jason Russell narrates and tells the story of how he got involved with this crisis and how he feels a new precedent for international justice can be set if the word is spread about Joseph Kony, eventually leading to his arrest. The video and the project will expire December 31, 2012.
Lil B's New Mixtape "God's Father"
It’s baffling, and it’s inspiring. There’s hardly a music parallel to the seeming effortlessness with which Lil B releases 90-minute-plus mixtapes—his 34-song God’s Father comes barely a month since 21-tracker White Flame. Production-wise, the mainstream sample selection on God’s Father is notable, featuring flips of Hall & Oates, New Edition, Three 6 Mafia, Aaliyah and Rihanna, plus untold less immediately apparent exemplars of creative reuse, like the incredible save screen song from PS2 game Ico on “Flowers Rise.” In terms of instrumentals, this might be the most polished Lil B mixtape ever released. And his lyrics are just as focused, or at least he seems excited to go on record. There are ethereal songs of rebirth, marimba-featuring hip-hop throwbacks, ad libs about adopting cats and going to church. Peerless as always. Click HERE to download!

Arguably the greatest game ever, this game was the only reason I got the Xbox and if it was not for NBA 2K Series, this would be the only game I would play.

This is the exclusive first look at the development process, join 343 Studios as they take the reigns of the Halo franchise and craft their inspirations behind the story arc, as well as some new footage of the Chief and his new Battle Rifle back in action.
