iPhone overtakes on Flickr

The iPhone (IMHO:rubbish) 2MP camera has overtaken all other camera's taking photos on Flickr. Reported here.

Surely it must be time for us quakr-ites to make an iPhone app like taggr that does ones tagging ready for the viewr? Oooh and we should update the viewr so it works and works in the iPhone's safari and oh dear I forgot we don't have any money or time or energy.

Maybe in a months time.

google does us over

Your pictures and views thereof : http://google-latlong.blogspot.com/2009/07/zoom-photo-navigation-in-street-view.html

Timeline : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOR0fPTx-os
Zoom, Tilt, Rotate : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3ytS7fHJf0

Actually, it's not quite all dead for us... we're still in a different focus space from Google - they show maps with the occasional photo, we want(ed) to show photo's with the occasional map tile for context.
