Flickr Camera Finder is here to help you buy a digi cam


Written on 4:58 PM by nitesh

I wanted to buy a digi camera but was confused which one to buy couldn't finalize one but probably with the help of flickr camera finder I will be able to decide one.

Main page of the camera finder shows the most used digi cameras , cell phones with camera and most popular brands.

Presently cannon is ruling the roost in the popularity charts with three cams in the most popular category and in cell phones with camera category sony is ruling with K750i.

Flickr has lined up all the camera manufacturers in its CameraFinder category and clicking on any manufacturer will show the different models and the maximum photos are taken by which model in a graphical manner. It also shows the top 5 cameras in the community. It is very helpful for novices who don't know about megapixels and shutter speed as popularity can help them buy.

I checked the cannon and found out that maximum pics were taken by EOS Digital Rebel XT during the last month

One can also check out the top 5 performers in a particular brand .

One can also see the detailed specifications a particular camera. It also shows how many photos were uploaded by users of the camera and in a graphical pattern the usage in a year. Bottom of the page shows the pics taken by the camera.

Lots of things can be done but one thing which is missing is comparison option which i feel will come soon

so Find a Camera and i hope to find mine also

Orkut + Gtalk – Blending Social Networking with Instant Communication


Written on 4:15 PM by nitesh

After linking GTalk to gmail and google docs to spreadsheets now it’s time for orkut and gtalk blending

Google has recently removed the invitation option in orkut so as to increase the number of users of orkut lagging very behind to others like myspace (130 million and orkut’s 30million). This blending will also further increase the usability of both orkut and gtalk which is not as popular as yahoo or msn but is popular among tech guys mainly.

A Google spokeswoman says there will be option on Gtalk ‘Orkut Friends’ showing status and information in the buddy list. GTalk users may be able to scrap to their orkut friends via GTalk. Others more features are also expected. The announcement is expected some time next week.

Google Docs


Written on 4:40 PM by nitesh

Google has just launched Google Docs application which is just integration of writely and Google spreadsheets. The new site now shows all the spreadsheets documents and writely documents in a single list. This is another shot towards the Microsoft’s cash cow office and towards other online office suites competitors like zoho.

I will review it later but will write about the one feature that I tested on it that is converting your email, word or any others documents to pdf format online using the Google docs.

  1. On logging to the Google docs you will get a unique id where you can email your documents. One can also upload the documents using the upload feature.
  2. After sending the mail you will receive a email from the Google server which would contain a link to the document.
  3. Open the document and use save as pdf, word or other options to save your documents.

I don’t see it’s extensive use in a country like India where net access is still very less compared to population, slowly these application particularly web 2.0 will be used extensively here.
