Nokia Facebook page

I really like this vibrant, info-packed Facebook page. Nice piece of graphic design, I think. Looks like a cool classified page for Nokia products only. There's good contrast in the first advert which gives focus, then lighter toned ads surrounding to ease the eye around the page. You could see this is a wall of information; a big block of data. But my eyes don't feel like they're heavily lunking around the page. The parcels of ideas are packaged nicely for me to pick apart what I need.

Plus I love this border edge/background combo here:

Border: D4D6D5, Background: DEDEDE. (Thanks to the colorpic tool)

Embedded video/audio player

Here's a neat bit of open source technology (JW Player) enabling you to embed audio or video into a website. Plus it gives you plenty of opportunity to skin it and change colours to your heart's desire.

Here it is in action on the Trinity College Choir site
