Google Saree! -Labnol

This Google Saree from Satya Paul, a fashion designer in India, costs around $300 and carries a print of the Google search results page.

They call this sari “Oogle” (replacing the “G” in the Google logo with “O”) maybe to prevent any trademark issues with the search company.

Read at Work

Do you wish to read books in office & don't want to be caught. Checkout . It mimics Windows XP interface and opens full screen so that no one can make out that its actually a website and not your desktop. 

The books are neatly arranged in the folders on desktop and the books open in PowerPont format. The content is actually presented in typical powerpoint slides. Check it out. It's real fun.

Checkout this site facesaerch (it's facesAErch, not facesEArch). It uses apple's coverflow interface to search for faces. I tried it and it works great.
