After visiting “Savage Beauty” exhibition of Alexander McQueen’s work at Victoria and Albert I’ve been reflecting over the dress.

It appeared in the last collection of McQueen (left unfinished at the time of his death). The dress features a mashup between elements of Hieronymus Bosch paintings: The Temptation of St. Anthony and The Garden of Earthly Delights.

Being a fan of both McQueen’s and Bosch art, I was absolutely excited to see it with my own eyes. And it got me thinking if anyone else was using Bosch paintings in clothing prints and if maybe I could get some (wearing Basquiat sweatpants to the gym makes you wonder.)

Turns out, there’re quite a few options. The trend has been set, and Bosch prints are being used in by fashion designers and even some mass-market brands.

10 awesome home gadgets people rarely use

This list contains 10 domestic gadgets that proved themselves to be unexpectedly useful and enjoyable. I’m not going to list such things as iPhone or Nespresso, since they are widely known, and if someone doesn’t use them it’s for either financial or ideological reasons.

IFTTT - About IFTTT

Automatic connection of webapps with IFTTT

Aren’t you using ifttt yet? It’s awesome and you should! It is kind of connector for social tools and information networks. It lets you to integrate between themselves online events from various internet channels with the if that… then this logic.

You can create recipes, manage recipes, and take a look at your feed to see how your recipes are working. You can also browse new recipes created by other users.

Channels are the basic building blocks of IFTTT. Each channel has its own triggers and actions. The this part of a recipe is a trigger. Some example triggers are “I’m tagged in a photo on Facebook” or “I check in on Foursquare.” The that part of a recipe is an action. Some example actions are “send me a text message” or “create a status message on Facebook.”

Pieces of data from a trigger are called ingredients. For example, the ingredients of an email trigger could be: subject, body, attachment, received date, and the sender’s address. Personal Recipes are a combination of a Trigger and an Action from your active Channels. Personal Recipes look like this:

IFTTT connecting Instagram to Dropbox

Personal Recipes can be turned on and off. When turned back on, they pick up as if you had just created them.
Polling Period. Personal Recipes check for new Trigger data every 15 minutes. Some Recipes have “Quick Triggers” that will run as soon as they receive Trigger data. Quick Triggers can be identified by a lightning bolt icon.

Since July 2013 with a release of an iPhone version of the app also, it allows deep iOS integration and iOS-specific channels (iPhoto, Contacts, Note etc.)

Here is a couple of recipes I’m currently using: “if I post an Instagram, then export this photo to Flickr and add a tag #instagram”. And “if a someone posts a public Zootool link, then save it to my own Del.icio.us stream”. Or “if there is a new file uploaded to my Dropbox, then send me an email with it’s name, URL and date of modification”.

Would you like to save favorite Tweets in a single Evernote or Dropbox? Get a Boxcar notification if it’s going to rain tomorrow? Get an SMS when your favorite team is winning? Yes, all of this can be done!

Сonclusion: IFTTT is awesome. Use it to your advantage and share your recipes with me!
