Icon Obsession

No one found this article interesting enough to chat about...

Over the past week or so I’ve some how managed to become completely obsessed with Mac OS X icons. Seriously…it might be considered an illness.

My current favorites are pretty much anything and everything by David Lanham. The guy has created over a dozen unique icon sets that are just plain juicy.
David Lanham's RBO

Some other nice icon resources are Iconfactory and InterfaceLIFT. Both have countless sets for the taking.

And if you decide you really want to get hardcore with your icon collecting, I highly recommend snagging Panic’s Candybar for handling system icons and Iconfactory’s Pixadex for organizing your truckloads of icons.

Die branding! Die!

Okay…branding shouldn’t die. But that still doesn’t change the fact that it showed up at the most inconvenient of times.

I, like millions of other loving husbands, purchased my wife fun goodies. And I did it all from the comfort of my leather office chair. The process took all of 10 minutes and I didn’t wait in a single line or have to awkwardly hand the check-out lady “female” attire. Great for me, right?

Well not really. 3 days after the easiest purchases of my life my wife walks in the door with 2 packages in her hand that she just picked up outside from the delivery man. Initially this isn’t so bad. The bad part comes in when the packages she hands me are completely covered in the logos of the 2 stores they came from.

To those companies, and any others shipping out items around Christmas, how about you not plaster your boxes with your logo for the entire month of December…seriously. It would keep you from being the evil grinch who spoils Christmas and I’d like a lot more and me liking you or not is extremely important.
