Using Panoman to get panoramic pictures wherever you are.

Using Panoman to get panoramic pictures wherever you are.

If you’re looking for a software that makes creating panoramic shots easy with a phone such as the N95 then Panoman is an interesting option. It’s a software that you install on the phone and helps you take a series of pictures before stitching them together. It does this by showing you a band with up to twelve possible images. As you take the first image keep the camera steady and pan to the right until the red border is…

Twitter’s broken yet again

Twitter’s broken yet again

And in great style twitter is broken again and yet again they’ve found a new way in which for this to be evident. Today they’ve devided to block all ingoing tweets, no more posting for the next few hours I guess. They really should get a prize for this. No warning, no status.twitter.com message, nothing.

My new Toy, the HDR-SR12E

My new Toy, the HDR-SR12E

After talking to a friend about possible collaborations in the near future I decided not to invest too much money on a new camera so I bought the Sony HDR-SR12. It’s a small easy to carry video camera that records in AVCHD at a resolution of 1920 by 1080i. The hard drive is 120 gigs for a total recording time of over 30hrs depending on what you want to shoot. I chose the highest quality setting and I still get…

To Maggie and Chris I dedicate my 600th Blog Post

To Maggie and Chris I dedicate this, my 600th blog post as you are now in Florida, engaged and planning the rest of your life together. We have exchanged hundreds of messages over the past year and it’s been fun. Now the dynamics have progressed and in so doing why not mark the occasion 🙂 Have fun. As a sub note I also dedicate it to my Cousin and his fiancée. And to Seesmic Whit and Claire.

Falling for Friendfeed

Falling for Friendfeed

Friendfeed is an interesting service I never wanted to use because I prefered Jaiku but recently that feeling has changed. As I saw Scoble speak more and more about how good friendfeed was I began to think that maybe it’s time to try the service, to see what it’s about and to see how well it works. As a result of the past day using the service I begin to enjoy i. What I like about this service is that…

Twitter and it’s fourty minute delay

Twitter and it’s fourty minute delay

Today twitter has reminded me of why I dislike how it’s managed. With the big Mac World event and CES twitter is down, for the count. The problem is that these crafty people have decided that rather than take the site down completely they would let it lag. As a consequence of this lag the site has been rendered redundant but don’t worry. Other sites like plurk, friendfeed and facebook are still standing.

Picasa for Mac

Picasa for Mac

Picasa is now available for mac and it works well. It works so well it took just 30 seconds for me to crash the application. On a more serious note Picasa is an interesting application that auto indexes all of your pictures in the Pictures folder and indexes your images within the application. As a result you have easy access to those images. At the same time as it can do those things it also makes uploading images to picasa…

TwitterFriends

TwitterFriends

Twitterfriends is another of those interesting tools to see who you converse with most on twitter. You can see who replies to you most, who you reply to most, the sphere of influence and more. As a result it’s a good tool with which to establish who are the interesting people to continue following as well as those that may be worth dropping. In particular the second to last tab deals with inactive account. It’s a quick and easy way…
