Photography, hello — Software ate the camera, but freed the photograph by Craig Mod
So many quotable bits. And it's about more than cameras. About the uncomfortable but fruitful position of straddling technological shifts. About the value of a new product that simplifies only a tiny number of steps. About the importance of the network to story-telling.

A good roundup of this stuff, although from 2011. I'd like to find a similar thing a bit more recent. Still, always nice to see something quite thorough.

"Peter Thiel pulled an iPhone out of his jeans pocket and held it up. “I don’t consider this to be a..."
For the thought exercise of comparing the "breakthroughness" and impact of the Apollo programme and the iPhone, and Paul's (for him) almost contrary (but not wrong) position.

"Prototype iPhone apps with simple HTML, CSS and JS components." Seems really nice. Less extensive than something like jQuery Mobile, but looks nice and simple to get something up and running quickly.

Ulmon Offline Maps and Tourist Travel City Maps & Guides
Meant to link to this a while back. CityMaps2Go was a really nice offline map viewer for iPhone while I was on holiday. Vector-based, so good detail, and no roaming charges.

Implementing a Fixed Position iOS Web Application - Google Mobile Developer Products - Google Code
Brilliant: how to (a) make page elements fixed on iOS Safari (which doesn't acknowledge position:fixed, grrrr) and (b) do scrolling with momentum. Gmail in iOS Safari is very swish.

Avatron Software: Air Display
Six quid for this, but I had to give it a go (two screens aren't enough!). Feels like magic: a wireless screen! But updating (eg, dragging windows) is pretty jerky and it can use 10-25% of my MacBook's CPU when I'm dragging stuff on it, 15% if something is updating frequently (like Activity Monitor). Around 2% when idle. But could be very handy for some things.

Momento Is Perhaps The Perfect Passive Diary App
A few people have mentioned this (article via Blech). It really is a very, very good iPhone app -- aggregates your feeds from many services, displays them nicely in a diary, lets you export all the aggregated data. More than worth £1.19.

My First Week with the iPhoneBehind the Curtain | Behind the Curtain
I've seen this ecstatic report by a blind person about their new iPhone linked to from a few places. Forget your iPhone-fatigue and skip to the last few paragraphs where he describes using an app (Color ID) which speaks the colours the device's camera "sees". Beautiful.
