The arguably crazy (and inarguably crazy fast) animators at Taiwan’s Next Media Animation are at it again. After blasting out over-the-top animated summaries for everything from the Ceglia Vs. Facebook story to Antennagate, they’ve done what they do best with a tale that’s on just about all of our minds right now: the life and career of Steve Jobs.
But don’t worry: while it’s just as absurd as most of their animations tend to be, they keep things mostly respectful. The lowest it goes is when they’re showing the birth of the Mac, and things get a bit… literal. After that, it’s death-defiance [...]
Yahoo Messenger has just received a new IMVironment which comes with a brand new pack of emoticons and can be used by anyone. This pack has been named as Emoticats, and this IMVironment is actually a Yahoo Messenger animation that lets you choose from several cat portraits and send them to the people you are chatting with.

After the monstrous success of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Disney used its table winnings and bet it all on animation, characterization, vocal performances, a score and a story all more sophisticated than its predecessor. It was a more [...]

Earlier this week, Phandroid served up some mouthwatering details about Android 3.0, AKA Gingerbread, along with one very lousy screenshot. Now they’ve got a quick video clip that supposedly shows Gingerbread’s turn-the-screen-off animation, and it is pretty damn cool. Yup, just like you’re turning off one of those old tube TVs. But more exciting than that single animation is what it suggests about the level of visual polish we can expect from Android 3.0. Very tasty indeed.
