How to take a screenshot on an Android phone*:
Download and install the free Android SDK (software development kit). Visit the site, and be sure to get the correct version for your OS.
The software also requires Java. Mac OS X has the right tools already built in. Windows users should download the Java Development Kit. Install the Android SDK and Java downloads.
Visit the Device Manager to fix any USB driver issues preventing your PC from recognizing your Android.Launch the SDK Manager from the Android SDK download. (In Windows, if prompted, choose Extract All.) Accept the terms, and click Install. The SDK will download more packages and then update itself with the latest files. This process can take about 30 minutes.
Launch DDMS (Dalvik Debug Monitor) within the Android SDK Tools folder. The software will open a console for a moment and then launch a graphical interface in another window. Give it a moment, but if it quits and there seems to be an error initially—as happened to me on my test systems—try running DDMS again.
On the Android device, open Setting, Application settings, Development, and select USB debugging. Connect the Android device to your computer.
In Windows, if the Android doesn’t appear as a listing in the Dalvik Debug Monitor application, go to the Device Manager. Right-click the Android device, and select Update Driver Software. Choose Browse my computer for driver software, click Browse, and navigate to the USB driver folder within the Android SDK folder. Click Next. Approve the following prompt to install the driver. Return to the Dalvik Debug Monitor; your Droid should now be listed.
With either OS, if your Android device still failed to show up in the Dalvik Debug Monitor, verify that you set it for USB debugging mode. In addition, drag the menu down from the top of the Android screen, and pick USB connection. In most instances, you’ll want USB Mass Storage to be selected. (I had to perform this step on a Droid X because it set itself up in PC Mode first.) But try PC Mode if the software isn’t finding your Android; that might solve the problem.
On your computer, click the phone icon in the upper-left section to select your Android. On the Android, prepare the moment you want to capture. On the computer, choose Device, Screen capture. Click Save. Repeat the process for additional screenshots as needed.
If you’re a savvy Android enthusiast, you can shoot screenshots without hooking up to a computer at all. First, however, you’ll have to root your phone.
Screenshot simply captures your Android device’s screen. Just be sure it’s rooted first, as the warning notes.Normally, the Android OS prevents screenshot apps from working, since they muck around with deeper permissions. The rooting process confers superuser abilities, however, granting you permission to do anything you want.
After rooting, search the Android Marketplace (or PCWorld’s AppGuide) for screenshot to find various apps such as Screenshot, and Screenshot It. You’ll activate screenshots with a timer, by shaking the phone, or via another command, and the app will then capture your device.
How to take screenshots on iPhone:
Press the sleep/wake button and the home button simultaneously.
Of course it’s not telling us to break the speed limits…
This 50m long installation in Hamburg Airport was the brainchild of Serviceplan Hamburg in an attempt to reflect (no pun intended) how the BMW M3 “transcends limits by delivering unbelievable performance from minimal resources”.
A great and unique use of location – just really clever.
I try not to reblog much. So two in a row is kinda not my style, but this stuff just needs to be seen. I feel unworthy.
Hey guise. Just got done editing the snot out of this picture. That girl who dressed up like Lady Tron (not the band) wanted some pics. Then I got carried away. Sooooooo… hope you all like it.

SEE WHAT YOU PRINT
Artefact has done it again! An amazing concept to bring the printer to the 21st century, by stripping down its cumbersomeness. I love this beautiful design and believe it is a compelling look at the near future.
I hate to reblog… BUT.
All my art friends everyone should know about this.
Ok guys. I listened to your comments… Er… wait… you didn’t make any… So I made up my own and did some tweaking to my portrait. How do you think this one compares?
Here’s the differences to save you some work.
Here’s what I’m still concerned about.
Thank you so much for your input.
Hey guys. I’ve been working on a self portrait in the ol’ illustrator. It’s inspired by a lot of things from Roman coinage to Swiss design so I’m asking your opinion on it. (You arty little tumbldorks you!) So… What do you think? Feel free to be honest and/or brutal.
Also, you may notice a bit of trademarking going on… I’m in the midst of a rebranding (yes, I’ve had logo’s before), and I would appreciate your input on my logo as well.
