Give the “gift of gif” with Gifpop!

Animated gif print from Gifpop!

Gifpop! takes animated gifs (up to 10 frames) and turns them into fun cards thanks to lenticular printing.

They’ve got a lot of examples from popular Internet gif-related memes if you want to see how they work. I already bought a couple to give to my wife as Christmas stocking stuffers. Excited to see how they turn out.

Also a big fan of the fact that they clearly pronounce “gif” correctly since they rhymed it with “gift” and didn’t say “jive the jift of gif” as their tagline.

 

Planet Money on Facebook Advertising

NPR’s Planet Money podcast covers Facebook from a couple interesting sides.

RIP Steve Jobs. 1955 – 2011.

Shocked and saddened by the news of the passing of Apple CEO and founder Steve Jobs tonight. Despite his illness and his resignation as CEO just a few weeks ago, this still has affected me greatly. I had to excuse myself from dinner to compose myself and acknowledge my feelings when I learned of the news tonight, via a push message from CNN’s iPhone app of course. As US President Barack Obama put it, “There may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.”

From Apple.com:

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.
