Polaroid's dead, and Pivi is born

It will be cool for about three months in 2009, and then for 5 years in 2029. But with the demise of Polaroid's instant film, the digital alternative is already on its way: A hand-held, digital camera that prints your images in 20 seconds, the Fuji Pivi.

It's been available in Japan since 2006. You can order it elsewhere, of course, you just have to be crafty. (And it's kind of cheap, actually).

Swedish Army Recruitment Video for Girls

The Swedish Army is going after girls who want to experience adventure overseas.

Which are, I'd say, some of the more bizarre ads for an army I could conceive of.

Here's one for Japan:

Original heads up over at adverlab, which has links to YouTube clips of military recruitment videos from all over the world.
