iPhone app for the color blind...

Dan Kamisky has fixed color for the color blind with this app he built for the iphone...I love the story on how he came up with the idea (from his site):
'So, we’re in Taiwan, building something…amusing…when we go out to see the Star Trek movie. Afterwords, one of the engineers mentions he’s color blind. I say to him, these fateful words:
“What did you think about the green girl?”
He responds, with shock: “There was a green girl??? I thought she was just tan!“'

There are some super-cute fabrics to be found on this site, but the best part of Spoonflower, is that you can order them on pretty much any kind of fabric you want!

Action Method

I'm always on the lookout for good project management tools, and I have just discovered a new one. Action Method, it would be most closely compared to BaseCamp, but seems to have a better User Interface (UI) and looks like it works well for keeping a personal to-do list as well.

It's free version allows you to create projects and delegate tasks to others, but limits you to 50 tasks total with unlimited projects (plenty for your day-to-day projects on a personal level) but if you plan to use it for an actual event planning tool or project management tool for your small company, you might want to fork out the $99 for a years worth of access. With this upgraded plan, you get file storage, and a whole slew of other features to make your life easier, like collaboration space, and online discussions.

It also has a free iphone app that ties in beutifully, and some paper accesories that you can order for your team to ensure that eeverything stays beautifully tracked even when you're jotting notes down at meetings.
