Electric Blue Heaven

Shot by Joe G. on location at Abu Dhabi’s Al Ain wave pool, and set to “Winter Beats” by I Break Horses. The full “Electric Blue Heaven” story can be found in the latest issue of Australian, STAB Magazine.

This is one of these cool videos, wish I could make a video like this but it could have a been a little cooler if they had a Go-Pro on the front of that Surf Board. Now to my surprise this one shot in Abu Dhabi, with all those women I would have thought it was shot in Australia. My bigger surprise is that this is a wavepool, I have never heard of a wave pool in Abu Dhabi, and the water looks so damn nice, I’m keeping this in the back of my mind to check it out when I have the chance.

Google Wave – Gone

GoogleWaveBye

I don’t think anyone has been using it except for the first month or two that it was out, I tried using it and seeing if it could be useful but damn it was annoying. You didn’t know which panel you were on and who was talking to who, jumping into big conversations or collaborations was confusing. Google tried to make something that people can use as a tool but it didn’t have the right type of integration to enjoy using it. Then they brought Buzz which I think is fantastic because its simple integration but they got it a bit wrong by forcing people to use it right away with all settings set to open, so that took some time to fix. Google had a few hits and misses but its great they keep trying to make these interesting products, but its good that Google is dropping Wave.
