Funny how “legacy design” is an issue for a 5 year old platform. Things just move that quickly these days.

Can’t wait for the really cool photo apps on tablets
I really love my cameras. I put a lot of hours into learning to use them, figuring out particularities, buying lenses and filters, etc. I am by no means a prosumer or even expert, but I know a little bit about taking pictures, composition, and aperture, exposure, blablabla.

The next big thing oder so.
Mein Aufruf nach Blogthemen auf Twitter hat ja wunderbar funktioniert. Da schreibt mir also mein Chef und will wissen, was das nächste große Ding ist…na gut: Das nächste große Ding ist nicht Foursquare und auch nicht Groupon, die gibt es ja schon längst. Foursquare hätte man vor einem Jahr nachbauen können, nachdem es beim SXSW […]
