The Null Device

From the futurephone of...

And now, a selection of images I found while cleaning out the memory on my cameraphone: AAAA batteries

Up until recently, I didn't know that they made AAAA batteries. They're like AAAs, only smaller. Not necessarily surprising, given that gadgets are getting smaller and less energy-consuming, and a single standard of smaller batteries makes more sense than a dozen weird, expensive proprietary types. Whether they'll catch on, however, is another question.

Search Engine

You know you're living in the Interweb Age when trucks have the words "Search Engine" painted on them.


A modified street sign, Northcote

We all live in a yellow submarine

I'm not entirely sure what political statement this poster is making; or maybe the futile quest for a connection between submarines (or perhaps Beatles lyrics) and the Howard government and/or a political grievance is meant to be the Zen koan-like message in itself?

Love the photos.

What street in Northcote is that UFO sign? Any idea? I live there and wouldn't mind getting a snap of that.

One of the streets between the Epping railway line and High St., not far from the Westgarth Cinema. I took the photo on the way back from my tax agent's.

The battery size is not much different with AAA's size. I wonder where you can use the AAAA.
