A new restaurant in New York City includes Instagram on the menu. Check out Latin American cuisine at Comodo, and search #COMODOMENU on Instagram for all the tasty images.
Your SD card just became outdated. Really outdated. The new Eye-Fi SD cards are an impressive step forward in the never ending war on wires.
While you are busy shooting, Eye-Fi cards are not just storing your images on the card itself, but are also sending them to the cloud or other devices like your mobile. As they are successfully saved off-site, your card is cleared, making space for more striking images. If you are not in range of a wireless connection the card simply stores the images until a connection is successfully made.
One of the benefits of the Eye-Fi that has some photographers excited is the ease in which you can transfer photos taken on an SLR and use them on Instagram. Never mind resizing and sending to your iPhone, the Eye-Fi does all the obnoxious work for you. Take a look at the company web site and let us know what you think of this new product.
OK that is officially the coolest Foursquare check-in ever, edging past NASA’s Space Station check-ins. Next question: Does Mars have any good bars or restaurants Curiosity can snag check-in discounts at? -Stacy
New York City has given the green light on plans to build the world’s largest ferris wheel on Staten Island. At 625-feet, the wheel will displace The Singapore Flyer which - at 541 feet - is the current record holder.
Since the success of the London Eye, cities across the globe have been taking their own crack at carny success. While some have fared well the list of failures give pause. Dubai, Berlin, Orlando, and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia have all seen ferris wheel projects put on hold or canceled.
The ferris wheel is part of a three-pronged project that includes a hotel and shopping center. Rumors swirl the development is an attempt to promote New York’s least inhabited and often most overlooked burrow. The ferris wheel is scheduled to open in 2015.
Dubbed by Forbes as a company that ‘gets’ social media, KLM, Royal Dutch Airlines has steadily rolled out creative campaigns and service since 2009. In a series of blog posts the company described their initial days in social media as a period to “observe, listen, and learn.” The company kept a low profile until the now infamous eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull that brought international air traffic to a stand still. In their efforts to inform and rebook 50,000 passengers KLM took to their social media channels. The method of communication proved to be practical, effective, and appreciated by customers. In 2009 KLM had two staff members assigned to social media. Now there are over 50.
To match the creativity of prior campaigns, such as the mile-high dance party “Fly2Miami,” earlier this year KLM started a program that allowed passengers to pick their seat mate by comparing social media profiles. The newest spoke of the social media wheel was just announced on Facebook Monday: Flynt the new Social Media V.I.P. (Very Interactive puppet.)
Judging by his Facebook profile, Flynt appears to be an active puppet who spends time fishing a drinking coffee. As of Tuesday evening he had close to 1,500 Facebook likes, setting himself up to be a fun social media marketing force even Jim Henson would be proud of.
A new poll shows that social media continues to make incursions into the news business. Americans under 30 are now as likely to consider social media their primary source of news as they are television. Pole respondents were asked about recent news consumption. Only 13% had read a newspaper, including digital editions, in the last 24 hours.
Twitter was studied independently of other social media sites. Only 11% of Americans use the site, but the majority of users do consider it a primary news source and were likely to re-tweet news related content.
