iPhone – most popular mobile camera

iPhone kills the competition

I am the first one to admit that the iPhone camera is bad. Really bad. Still, I use it a lot! The rest of the phone is so good that you can live with having a quite lousy built-in camera. Above you can see a graph of the most used mobile camera on the most popular photosite, flickr.com – and as you can see, the iPhone kills the competition. I wonder how the graph would have looked if the iPhone would have had a good camera? And I’m pretty sure it won’t take long until we will get a new model with a better camera.

OneSwarm

OneSwarm

OneSwarm is an interesting new software technology coming from University of Washington. It’s a whole new peer-to-peer technology (like bittorrent) with the big difference that it’s completely anonymous. It will be interesting to follow the development of this new piece of software, but the usage of it will probably explode within the next year or so. The client is available for Mac OS X, XP, Vista and Linux – and the source code is open.

Nerds on a plane

Kevin Rose streaming live from an airplane earlier today

One of the twitter flows I follow and read regularlys is the one from Kevin Rose, founder of digg.com and other cool things. Earlier today he tweeted about that it was great that the flight between NYC and San Francisco had a WiFi connection. And a few minutes later he tweeted again letting all his followers know that he had set up a live uStream. I clicked in and a few minutes later Virgin Atlantic tweeted about it as well. And in a few minutes close to 1000 people was watching Kevin Rose, sitting in his airplane chair listening to music and chatting. Kudos to Virgin Atlantic for their great use of social media – impressive.
