FEEDBOXES are autonomous sound toys that play along with you - CDM Create Digital Music
Both the feedboxes, and the earlier feedback synth, are delightful. Something really nice going on inside this - the simple physical affordances of microphones becoming a playable part of an instrument.

Maniacal Rage: Reading post
"Apple is creating an ecosystem of the kind of customers I don’t want. With the ridiculous approval process leaving bugfixes to take over a week to show up, with prices being driven down to nothing by farting apps… it just feels hostile to me. While I have plenty of great customers who have been raving about the app, all it takes is one little issue and it all comes crashing down." Sad, really.

Core77 Presents: Greener Gadgets Design Competition
"SmartSwitch doesn't restrict the user from turning on a light, but rather it passively encourages behavior change. SmartSwitches can be programmed to respond to either personal or communal electrical usage. In a home wired with SmartSwitches, lights can become harder to turn on during hours of peak demand." Just right.
