Recent Playstation advertising has been described, by some circles, as being creative, effective and memorable. By others, down right controversial. In the beginning, the advertising for the original Playstation was reasonably conservative, and demonstrated with ease the product they were selling, without trying to shock or mind blow anyone. Nice and simple. With the arrival of the PS2, and perhaps realizing that the vast majority of the PS2 sales were for adults, the advertising took a downward turn into controversy that generally angered their targeted market. The trend has continued to a lesser extent with the PS3, were perhaps Sony took heed from the feedback of the PS2 advertising and toned down there aggressive and controversial style of advertising. After all, it is just a gaming console.

Spending months and months building an effective and useful web application or service is only half the battle that any developer must face. It might be potentially the most powerful and useful app ever created, but will users like it? Will they understand how to use it? And most importantly, will they come back and use it again? These are the three questions developers must ask themselves before they launch any app.
A selection of web sites that caught the eye this week, keep your recommendations coming, I can’t get enough of them. Anyone know of any well designed FLEX sites?
In this weeks selection CSS is back! I am loving the Smoking Cow and the DUEL PURPOSE designs, they are the best I have seen in a little while. Incidentally, I seem to grade every site against Good Magazine, the pinnacle of this years web design. Marvelous site.

Joomla is a very solid foundation for any web site, and has you can see by the sites below they can help you create beautiful and very functional web sites.
Flash again is dominating in this weeks web design inspiration. There are a few designs created with CSS, but not as many as expected. Whats going? Has Flash had a new surge in popularity?
Quite often a films promotion poster does not reflect the quality of the actual film, which is disappointing. But what if the poster was designed differently, with a little bit more artistic and creative license, what would the results be like? How would you feel about the movie? In this post we have taken a look at alternative movie posters from various popular and classic films.
This weeks selection features a couple of cool Flash sites, especially FormTroopers, Flash at its best. Textism, you could probably describe as being ultra-minimal, it has been stripped down and all you are left with is the content, there is something appealing about it. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this weeks selection.
