Footballers around the world can now record and socialise their scored goals through a Nike Facebook app – the T90 Strike Counter. This initiative is launched in conjunctionOn November 3, 2011 / By Gracie
Footballers around the world can now record and socialise their scored goals through a Nike Facebook app – the T90 Strike Counter. This initiative is launched in conjunction with the new Nike T90 Laser IV boot that is designed to deliver the ultimate power and precision for goal scorers.
The T90 Strike Counter allows players to input data about their goals such as a spot on the pitch where they scored from, the part of the net where the ball hit and the part of the boot that struck the ball. A 3D image can immediately be shared with friends or team mates. How cool is that?
As the goals roll in, Nike Football will host the conversation bringing pros and young players together in a celebration of the art of the perfect strike, no matter how it ends up in the back of the net. How many goals are volleys? How many are scored from inside the box? Scored with the right foot? Left? Outside of the boot? Top corner?
The app will also feature pro player commentary about memorable goals and what makes the perfect strike. CBF national team player Pato said, “A perfect strike depends on the moment within the game. How close to the goal I am, or which side of the field I receive the ball. The most important thing is hitting the back of the net. It’s great to score a spectacular goal, but a tap in is good, too, they all count.”
To support the launch of the T90 Strike Counter Facebook app, Nike has created a short film capturing the dynamic strikes of leading sharp shooters including Fernando Torres, Higuain, Pato and Wesley Sniejder. The film features strikes at goal that are rapidly captured and calculated using the strike counter 3D imaging. Slow motion graphics of intricate footwork and goal celebrations are set against a constantly escalating strike counter as shots fire in from all angles. To view the film and participate in the T90 Strike Counter app, visit www.facebook.com/nikefootball.

In this iPhone dominated world, non-smart phones are becoming rare finds than its smart counterpart. John’s Doe from Amsterdam brought us John’s Phone – the world’s simplest cell phone. As John said: you call, you hang up, and that’s it.
There are no frills and no unnecessary features such as a camera, text messaging and an endless number of ringtones. It’s the no-contract cell phone with large keys and more than 3 weeks standby time.
The back of the phone features a small opening with an address book and pen (yes, not stylus, not touchscreen, it is a ‘book’ and a ‘pen’). John prided that two unique features allow you to use even when your phone is switched off. (yeah.. one can’t emphasize the simplicity any more than that)
Before you start going “Oh, my gosh! That belongs to dinosaurs’ age”, do check out the design of John’s Phone. It does looks real cute. It’s a different class from that those that you can find in our 7-Eleven stores. For the guys, perhaps you could perhaps consider this device on your next nation serving mission.
John’s Phone is 10.5 centimetres in height, 6 centimetres in length and 1.5 centimetres in width (4.1”/2.4”/0.6”). Weight: 95 grams.
Priced at USD 100, get it online atwww.johnsphones.com.
Paypal, Visa & Mastercard are accepted.
If you really can’t find any reason for this phone, consider it for your grandma & grandpop.

We live in a world where ‘organic’ is no longer just a hype, but a part of life – organic fruits, organic meat, organic cotton for apparel, organic skin care (and even organic lubricants… phew).
Jing used to be skeptical about organic skin care. Imagine putting cucumber, egg white, etc on your face hoping it will do miracle sounds like an old-wives’ tale. However, coming across Suki (Advanced Organic Science)and trying out the products myself changed my perspective completely. Jing is now a convert!
Checkout Pure Tincture, a distributor of organic skin care products in Singapore, that carries Suki, Madara, Santa Verde and more organic brands. You can shop at their online store and have the products delivered to your home. However, if you are new to these, Jing recommends you to drop by their store at Raffles Place or Tangs Vivo City. Helen Lien, owner of this fabulous store, will patiently explain and recommend the suitable products for you.
Jing’s staples includes Suki Concentrated Balancing Toner, Suki Balancing Day Lotion and Suki Transformative Cleansing Clay. Suki Complete Care Set or the Suki Jump Start Kit contains the samples / travel-sized kits of the various products, perfect for the new users to try out. You might like to try out other sample kits put together by Pure Tincture containing the best products from the various organic brands. Price starts, very affordably, from SGD 8 and are available for various skin conditions.
Pure Tincture also offers facial and body treatments, as well as organic waxing, at their Raffles Place store.

UPDATES: Bevelyn Khoo @ TAB has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumtances. For more information, clickhere.
Winner of the Singapore Indie Award 2009, Bevlyn Khoo has probably come a long way from a wedding-singer back then, with the release of her fourth album <<Feel About You>>.
The Singaporean sing-songwriter sings an eclectic mixture of English, Mandarin, Japanese and French. Her unique sophomore effort, <<A Bistro Affair>> in French, reached #3 on the Taiwanese Jazz charts in 2010.
She is best known for being “the voice behind
the sub-theme song <<保温>> for the Mediacorp hit drama serial <<小娘惹>> (Little Nyonya)”, (or somehow her label very much preferred to emphasize it that way).
Jing prefers the easy listening <<Feel About You> and <<The Goodbye Waltz>> featured in her latest album. It may be more pop than jazz, but nonetheless, makes a good choice on laid-back Sunday afternoons.
S2S and TAB present Bevlyn Feel About You on Wed, 19 Oct 2011.

Werewolf meets girl. Past movies and TV shows have taught us what the most likely outcome of such an episode would be. This time, SpanKidz presents a storyline like no other when a pair of Feiyue shoes is involved.
A few weeks ago, a teaser of the‘Attack of the Werewolf’ film was launched and readers were invited to guess the correct end to the film from five possible scenarios. Now the moment has come to reveal the fate of the girl…and the werewolf as well.
“In a moonlit night, a young girl finds herself lost in the middle of a forest. Two electric blue eyes look at her through the fog.”
What happens next?
The correct end is…scenario 1 – The werewolf will try to steal the cheerleader’s Feiyue sneakers and she will have to fight him back to recover them.
What can we say? Looks like a pair of Feiyue shoes is worth risking our lives for. Being caught in the exact circumstance, we would fight a werewolf too!
Nookmag would like to thank our sporting readers for sending in their guesses! And congratulations to the winner who will receive the same pair of Feiyue shoes that the girl and the werewolf were fighting for!
In the meantime, discover Feiyue’s new horror film, ‘Attack of the Werewolf’…

So apparently when Ke$ha exploded into the scene with the best selling single of 2010 Tik Tok, the folks at Baby-G sat up and listened! Today, the global superstar and platinum selling singer/songwriter and the fashion-forward Baby-G brand announce the launch of two Ke$ha-designed watches – CASIO BGA-200KS-1E and BG-5600KS-7.
Bringing her signature brand of sass and style to the table, Ke$ha infuses two of her most signature themes into the design of her timepieces – animal print and All-American. Both watches are also adorned with Ke$ha’s signature ‘Ke$ha’ logo.
The BGA-200KS-1E harkens to Ke$ha’s wild side, as well as what is arguably the most identifiable theme in Ke$ha’s music and style – animal print. She designed this watch with a leopard print pattern on the watch face and the black resin strap. The watch is 100m water and shock resistant. It is equipped with an LED Light, world time from 48 cities and 29 time zones, a daily alarm, 1/100th second stopwatch, countdown timer, 12/24 hour formats and a mute function.
For her second design, Ke$ha created the patriotic BG-5600KS-7 model which features a splash of red, white and blue complete with stars – iconic traits of the American flag. The watch features 100m water and shock resistance, EL backlight with afterglow, 48-city world time, four daily alarms and one snooze, countdown timer, 1/100 second stopwatch, mute function and 12/24 hour formats.
“I’ve been designing and making my own clothes since I was young and as an artist, I design all of my stage costumes,” said Ke$ha, the ambassador of Baby-G.
“This experience with Casio is so exciting because it’s my first collaboration as a designer and it’s extra meaningful because I wrote my first single ‘TiK ToK’ on a Casio keyboard.”
“In creating my red, white and blue watch, I was obviously inspired by the American flag because it’s a recurring theme in my aesthetic but also represents freedom of speech – a right I passionately exercise in my life and in my music. Leopard print is another recurring theme in my look, which I like to wear because it brings out my animal inside. I hope when people wear my watches they’re reminded to express themselves always and never lose the animal inside themselves.”
The Casio BGA-200KS-1E (S$147) and BG-5600KS-7 (S$137) are available at all Casio G-Factory stores and authorised dealers.
Rock on, GRACiE
