iPhone 4 to surpass Nikon D90 as Flickr’s most-used camera

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on April 18th, 2011

Looks like the iPhone 4 is about to hit another milestone. It will soon be the most popular camera on Flickr. The site’s Camera Finder shows Apple’s phone ready to overtake the Nikon D90 and it has already passed Canon’s EOS 5D Mark II, Rebel T1i, and Rebel XSi.

Flickr notes that the graphs only track shots with metadata identifying the camera and might omit shots from any platform that has had the information omitted. Some editing tools also either have the option to clear out metadata or will do it by default. D90 users and other DSLR users are more likely to use editing tools than iPhone owners and that will certainly skew the results. Still, we don’t doubt the power of the mighty iPhone 4.

Flickr recovers deleted photographs

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on February 3rd, 2011

Yesterday we reported that a Flickr user had lost 4,000 photographs due to an accident that caused his account to be deleted. Luckily for him, he brought attention to his case throughout the internet. Bad press is something that Flickr doesn’t want, so today they corrected the situation.

The user had his account reinstated and his 4,000 photographs were restored. He was also rewarded with 25 years of Flickr Pro membership. The official statement from Flickr below:

Flickr accidentally deletes 4,000 plus photos

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on February 2nd, 2011

“The best online photo management and sharing application in the world.” may not be able to make that claim any longer. It has deleted more than 4,000 pictures from a very prolific user. Flickr then sent photo blogger Mirco Wilhelm a so-called apology.

Understandably it irritated Mirco even further as he took to his blog with a post titled “You have to f**king kidding, Yahoo!” So, how did this happen? Well, Mirco realized that another blogger was using his photos and wanted Flickr to help, so he reported the problem. Then Flickr “accidentally deleted” Mirco’s account and when he contacted Flickr about this they responded like this:

Jolibook spotted on Flickr

Posted in Netbook by Conner Flynn on November 13th, 2010

Behold the Jolicloud Jolibook. The 10.1-inch netbook is finally showing off in a set of official press shots. Like in the other images we’ve seen, the lid has a cartoon scene.

The chiclet style keyboard resembles recent Acer Aspire One systems and it’s an all plastic build, which should mean a low starting price. All in all it looks like an Acer except for that lid. What do you think?

Flickpad iPad app

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on August 17th, 2010

Here’s an easy way to share and view your own and your friends Facebook and Flickr photos using the iPad. It’s a new app called Flickpad, which is available in both a lite and a paid version. Basically the Flickpad iPad App pulls photos from your Flickr and Facebook contacts and displays them as if scattered on a table on your iPad.

It doesn’t replace Flickr, it just allows you to keep up with your friends photos that have been added or tagged that day. Pretty interesting app.

VUDU brings Pandora, Picasa and Flickr to connected HDTVs, more apps coming soon

Posted in VUDU by Conner Flynn on November 5th, 2009

VUDU brings Pandora, Picasa and Flickr to connected HDTVs, more apps coming soonWait. I thought HDTVs were all about watching actual TV. Well, VUDU thinks it’s all about apps and they may be right. VUDU has today made both Picasa and Flickr access possible through LG and Mitsubishi sets with integrated VUDU software.

Yes, this was already available to those of you relying on one of VUDU’s set-top boxes, but some of us like to have everything within the display itself. Pandora streaming is also available on VUDU-fied Mitsubishi panels, but LG has “requested that only free TV and games be available on their devices.”

Kaleido R7

IPEVO announced today at the Consumer Electronics Show an Internet connected digital image frame. It is called the Kaleido R7 and it will be available in March.

The IPEVO Kaleido R7 incorporates what is described as computer-centric behavior in how it provides consumers access to favorite Web content via wireless streaming and syncing. A channel based concept allows users of this frame to subscribe to content from photo-sharing Web sites like Flickr and Picasa, as well as news or blogs via RSS feeds. This is in addition to the traditional method of accessing content stored on computer hard disk or memory storage devices.


Flickr bikes coming to a city near you

Posted in Yahoo by Conner Flynn on September 16th, 2008

Flickr bikes coming to a city near youThis is one of a small fleet of GPS and cameraphone equipped bicycles that Flickr has deployed in select cities around the world. It’s purple, solar powered, pedal powered, GPS powered and it probably needs a little basket with a bow to complete the girl’s bike look. The bikes have handlebar-mounted cameraphones (Nokia N95s, based on the metadata in the Flickr photos) that will snap a shot every 60 seconds while the bike is in motion. Then the photos get uploaded with the geodata, to a special Flickr account.

I have no idea what the purpose is, other then publicity. I suppose they could partner with Nokia etc and start selling these bikes. They are likely to be a nice collectible in a few years, so if you have one keep it safe. And try not to get into too much trouble snapping pics of drug dealers and uploading them.

Flickr adds video to photo-sharing site

Posted in Services by Darrin Olson on April 9th, 2008

Flickr adds video sharing to its popular photo sharing web siteFlickr announced on Tuesday that it is has added video sharing to its popular photo-sharing online community. The new video sharing feature allows any pro members of the Flickr community to upload and share video clips with others using the same scope restrictions currently available for photo sharing.

The video clips can be taken with just about any device and can be up to 90 seconds in length or have a maximum size of 150MB. Even though only pro members can upload the video, all visitors will be able to view them depending on the share level given to the video. Flicker currently has about 42 million monthly visitors to the popular photo sharing site and hosts around 2 billion photos from around the world. Adding video content is a logical next step in further growing the sites popularity and may entice many people to upload videos with some sharing restrictions which might not have done with sites like YouTube where they are almost instantly public. The site will also have the ability to tag and geotag the videos and the ability to upload straight from a camera phone.

PSP concept is a slick & sexy slider

PSP Concept is a slick & sexy slider
This fan-made PSP concept is an awesome slider, with a look that beats the hell out of the old one and then spits on it for good measure. It’s got an amazing large screen and an iPhone style home button in front.

Just slide it open and it’s ready for gaming, revealing the D-Pad, two analog nubs, and the face buttons. This is one hell of a nice concept, considering I’m not much of a PSP fan and it’s got me wanting one yesterday. We can only hope that the next PSP looks something like this.

Disguise your iPod as a vintage Walkman

Posted in iPod Accessories by Conner Flynn on February 3rd, 2008

iPod Walkman
iPods are one of the most common devices that thieves will steal easily if given half a chance. Therefore, it’s better to have it disguised as something else. And while you might look a little odd listening to your vintage 80’s walkman, no one will ever suspect that there’s a valuable iPod inside.

This clever iPod concealer has authentic looks right down to a see-through clear plastic front. Unfortunately you can’t get one of these for your own right now. This one the owner made himself. Ever think you would see an iPod in an old Walkman? I know I never thought I’d live to see the day. He gets points for originality. Who knows, this sort of thing may just revive that old 80’s walkman style, that seemed so cool back then.
