Pagerank for images

PageRank for Product Image Search
“We cast the image-ranking problem into the task of identifying authority nodes on an inferred visual similarity graph and propose an algorithm to analyze the visual link structure that can be created among a group of images. Through an iterative procedure based on the PageRank computation, a numerical weight is assigned to each image; this measures its relative importance to the other images being considered.”

Kinetic charging

Orange launches dance-powered phone charger
“The Orange Dance Charge is a portable phone charger powered through the kinetic movement of a system of weighs and magnets, which move as you groove. The system’s contained within a jogger-style MP3 arm strap, which also contains a storage battery for holding all the dance-generated energy. When your mobile phone runs out of power, you only have to connect the storage battery up to your mobile phone before you’ve got enough juice to continue snapping blurry pictures of on-stage bands, or texting your mates that Trent Reznor’s sweat just landed on your face.”

Easy publishing

Magcloud: On Demand Magazine Printing
“Users upload PDF’s of their magazine to the site and set a desired profit on top of shipping and productions costs. Magcloud then generates a publisher page for your title which provides information, issue previews and an order form. After that the site does all the work, handling the printing, mailing, subscription management, and promotion. Although anyone can buy from the site, publisher accounts are invitation only at the moment.”
