TED 2011 Ads Worth Spreading, Part 2 of 3

This is part 2 of 3 posts showing all the ads TED deemed worth spreading. (Part 1)

The TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) community just released its 2011 Ads Worth Spreading contest winners, and the ads are better than the ones I have seen for the Super Bowl in any year! But what did you expect from a brilliant group who’s moniker is “Ideas Worth Spreading”?

Now these ads aren’t like ones in the Super Bowl lasting 30-60 seconds. These ads are much longer, often being the full version of the shortened ads for TV time slots. However, with ads like these, I could watch commercials in place of TV shows because I don’t notice how long or short they are. I’m actually a little sad once it’s over, alongside whatever mood the commercials left me in.

I have posted a bunch of the ads here because I have found higher quality versions of the ads than the ones available on the TED website. Otherwise, I’d have just posted links to them all on TED’s site.

The link for Part 3 is at the end of the post.

Enjoy and be prepared to be wowwed!!!

Over 160 X-men Widescreen Wallpapers (1440×960 pixels)

The X-men wallpaper set is my favourite of all the wallpaper sets I’ve created on this site. I love the X-men comics, and I thought the casting and costumes created for the movies’ characters were fabulous! The movies were spectacular, too, and I only wished they put one out each summer. Goodness knows they’ve got enough story lines to create that many for a long time… and it’s not like they don’t make a ton of money, either!

I hope you enjoy these wallpapers. I have more for other monitor sizes coming by the end of November if this or the widescreen sizes below aren’t what you were looking for.

If you’re using Windows XP, you can learn how to create your own customized Windows XP screen saver with instructions via this link.

I also have instructions for how to use Windows 7′s nice rotating background feature to rotate many of these wallpapers on your computer if you didn’t know how to enable it.

Over 200 X-men Movies Printable Picture Cards and Posters

These graphics from the X-men movie series can be taken to any typical photo printing machine and be printed out at 6″ x 4″ in size unless otherwise indicated. If you like the X-men, or for the X-men fan in your life, these make great “custom” little souvenirs. Also use your imagination to use these as prints for anything you can print a picture on, from T-shirts to cups, for unique custom gifts.

Pictures 8″ x 12″ in size, or 12″ x 18″ in size, can also be printed out as small 6″ x 4″ without having to cut off anything.

It seems to me that in some places, photo machines or stores do not print 8″ x 12″, so I have created 8″ x 10″ where I can from those larger pictures. It’s certainly hard to find 8″ x 12″ frames in some places, but 8″ x 10″ seems to be quite common, so all the more reasons to have the latter. Sure, these are just photos and what have you, but for the X-men fan in your life, a few of these would look real nice on their walls or desks! I know I’d like some!

The larger the photo size, the larger the file size will be so please be patient. 12″ x 18″ files are often larger than 8MB, while 8″ x 12″ files range anywhere from 2-4 MB. The file size is to maintain the quality of the graphics for printing nicely.

These are not official merchandise so please do not use them to make anything to sell!
