Update 2: This comic strip has been officially labeled as “lame” by Wired. The article highlights, “it is nice to have the Apple product be the humble and earnest one instead of the snide device with all the features”. Role reversal.:)
Having a little fun…
Hamad Darwish, the Flickr photographer commissioned to shoot Windows Vista wallpapers, has been busy over the last few weeks.
He’s appeared on Good Morning Kuwait, a TV show comparable (not in scale, but at least in name) to Good Morning America; Digg (3 times); the Al-Anba newspaper; Kuwait Clientele magazine; Softpedia; Chip.de; the Official Windows Vista magazine and a Chinese magazine for the arts, which they claim to be the biggest in China. Apparently, he has also landed a contract with a photography equipments manufacturer and been commissioned to teach a photography course.
You could say, I started something. But that’s not all.
Hamad has since released as promised, the entire set of photos taken for Windows Vista in high-resolution of 1920×1200 pixels on his personal website. Go grab ‘em!
I’ve picked Destination – vol. II as my new wallpaper. It’s just amazing.
