1) The new Apple iPhone has a 160 ppi screen, when you flip it 90 degrees, the screen flips too, it can show pdfs… And you have it with you all the time… 2) The iTunes store has sold two billion tracks or so, has a system that works, and has their frontend (iTunes) installed [...]
I’ve just made suggestion for a new feature for Flickr. What do you think?
Photographer Thomas Hawk buys himself a Mac. And the first thing I was thinking was: Now we’ll have lots of advice on digital photography and working with photos on the Mac. I think Thomas is a very talented photographer and an excellent writer too. And I’m always looking for advice on how to store/organize/work with [...]
Today I saw this: Geocoordinates from Wikipedia for Google Earth. It has coordinates for Google Earth for 52 175 English Wikipedia entries. So when you tarvel around in Google Earth, you get lots of clickable entries from Wikipedia. Very useful! Which reminded me of something I thought about this summer while driving around Norway with [...]
Now you can assign RSS feeds to people in AIM messenger. Great idea. It only works in Trillian for Windows so far, but I think features like this will come everywhere pretty soon.

I bought Delicious Library over a year ago, and immediately entered several hundred books, and most of my games. I also wrote lots of feedback to Delicious Monster, telling them how to improve this cool app. Then my Powerbook chrashed. And I couldn’t find the file containing all my books and games in the backups. [...]

Master photographer Thomas Hawk posts 10 great ways to find great pics on Flickr. One of them is to look at Thomas’ favorites. Over 14 000 great photos. Note to Flickr team: Can we have an RSS feed for other users favorites?
