Brand Palette - download brand's color palettes as CSS etc

Here's a neat site for the designers & art directors out there: Brand Colors. At a glance see what Dribbble, Dropbox, Coca Cola, Adobe, Dell, Flickr and Flattr have as their brand colors. You can download the colors as CSS, LESS, SCSS or ACE. You can sort the colors in collections, like music and photography. The only thing that would make this better if you could submit a color palette and automagically turn that into downloadable css. That would be magic. Our brand colors above, are not listed on the site... Yet. ;)

The ASPCA partners with OkCupid to play matchmaker.

The ASPCA took a very old idea (this concept used to live in newspaper personals) and partnered with OK Cupid to show all those love-starved neurotic New Yorkers they can find love in the form of a furry four legged creature. I wonder if anyone told the ASPCA that Ok Cupid is primarily a one night stand
center.

The website's gallery has 70 GIF's in its collection. A few feature well known Finnish performers.
But the really cool part is you can synch them to the beat of the music.
