Take a look at some of the latest ideas, products, and visuals for the week of February 03rd brought to you by our strategists, designers, and developers.

Ideas

How Facebook Mastered The Art Of Survival: When a notable startup threatens Facebook, one of two things happens: Mark Zuckerberg will attempt to buy the company. Or he will threaten to destroy it.

Products
Google Now In Chrome: A recently launched service that will contest parking tickets with minimal effort from the offender.

Facebook Paper: Facebook’s new standalone app Paper is now available for download on iOS to everyone in the US, and it’s more than just a content reader. Could it be a Facebook killer?

Outernet: An unrestricted, globally accessible cyberspace that’s available to everyone on Earth for free may seem too good to be true, but believe it or not, it is actually what the Outernet project is keen to accomplish.

Visuals
