Google shows touchy-feely Android phone
SAN FRANCISCO--Google demonstrated some new tricks of its Android mobile phone software, including an elaborate use of Google Maps Street View and a touch-screen interface with abilities known for their presence on Apple's iPhone...
After calling up a view of San Francisco using a Web browser, Horowitz turned around, and the Street View screen panned left or right accordingly, reflecting his orientation.
Still having fun with the old "first generation" iPhone. :-)
I was up in Seattle for a couple days for a shoot, and took a few minutes on a walk from location to hotel to snap a dozen or so overlapping shots with my iPhone. Results aren't too bad -- considering the camera, and that I was keeping in motion to keep warm. ;)
I suppose I could have made the extra effort to go all the way around -- but here's a partial panorama for you. :-)
I'm currently in NYC, getting ready to head home from a VR shoot for a NY-based client. I had a few minutes to spare, & was walking down 5th near my client's office. Lo, the Empire State building!
I took several photos with my iPhone, and tried out Photoshop CS3's Photomerge abilities. This was my first time playing with Photomerge, so I just fed it the 3 iPhone pix, and let it do its thing automatically. I think it did a fine job, especially considering the iPhone isn't known for being, uh, really sharp. :-) That, and the exposure blending and equalizing is nice.
I'll be heading over to the iPhone Developers Meeting tonight, August 21, to see fellow local iPhone aficionados and developers. Christopher Allen ( www.lifewithalacrity.com ) is the de facto force behind the recent iPhoneDevCamp & Hack-a-thon, as well as the extremely active iPhoneWebDev Google group.
More fun with iPhone... :-)
I was adding some photos to my iPhone (finally!), and decided to post a set for public use. Those of you with iPhones, feel free to view and download some of my photos for your own iPhone... Free iPhone wallpaper -- what could be better? :-P ...Enjoy!
Sorry, nothing panoramic yet, which looks good at 480x320. :-(
I still need to "pretty it up", but the basics are there (thanks Joe!). Interestingly, iPhone specific links such as
<a href="tel:1-510-868-9120">(510) 868.9120</a>, and some regular http links, don't seem to work from my pages.
Share the drooling for the iPhone in 360 degrees!
