An enterprise such as THE WORLD’S GREATEST BOOKS is to be judged from two different standpoints. It may be judged with respect to its specific achievement–the material of which it consists; or it may be judged with regard to its general utility in the scheme of literature to which it belongs.
In an age which is sometimes ironically called "remarkable" for its commercialism, nothing has been more truly remarkable than the advancement in learning as well as in material progress; and of all the instruments that have contributed to this end, none has been more effective, perhaps, than the practical popularisation of literature.
In THE WORLD’S GREATEST BOOKS an attempt has been made to effect a compendium of the world’s best literature in a form that shall be at once accessible to every one and still faithful to its originals; or, in other words, it has been sought to allow the original author to tell his own story over again in his own language, but in the shortest possible space.
Such a method differs entirely from all those in which an author is represented, either by one or more extracts from his work, or else by a formal summary or criticism of it in a language not his own. And, since the style and language of an original is what often constitutes the wings upon which alone its thought will fly, to have access to its thought without its form is too often to possess a skeleton without the spirit which alone could animate it.

I was recently at http://news.yahoo.com/ I noticed this really cool mac commercial ready to be played. First thing I did was checked to see if what was done in Flash since I really have never seen Apple directly themselves use flash. To my surprise it was, probably done by an Ad Agency.
The little Mac ad incorporates two different parts of the site, header and side ad sections.
Check it out, I thought it was worth, blogging:
