It’s a collection of 10 million Creative Commons images that Flickr has defined as ‘interesting’. The genius part is the bar on the right hand side, which allows you to search the images by combinations of up to 10 colours. The proportions of each colour in the found images can even be boosted by selecting individual colours multiple times.
Probably won’t be used a huge amount day-to-day, but a great little bookmark to keep tucked away for mood boards and the like.

You know when you see a line at the bottom of a poster that says Text FOP to 82958 for more info? Well Taykat lets you set up one for yourself. It’s simple and free… You register a word and the associated message (e.g. times and locations of your band’s upcoming gigs, or the location of the next poster for a secret trail, etc). When someone texts the word to 82958, Taykat reply with the message you’ve set up. The person who texts-in is charged 25 pence + their standard network fee. That’s it. Mint.
