Much has been said about the problems with Apple to replace Google Maps

collaborative project, where you can enter information.
It is a concept similar to Wikipedia, but for maps and other geographic data
much broader than just street names.
OpenStreetMap is a project in which you want to create and provide free
geographic data such as street maps, place names, photographs, etc. to anyone
who needs it. Why did the project? The project was started because most maps
that are believed to be free actually have legal or technical restrictions
for use, which means that you can not use it in your own creative projects.
The large database is generated from data entered by ordinary users, up from
photographs, GPS data and simply... (more)
Eucalyptus Session at Cloud Expo
Cloud Computing Expo - Now we have a Eucalyptus’ Private Cloud installed
and running on our premise, and it remained kinda of an artifact in our
data-center for sometime.
So I thought why has not someone written anything about how make to make

There was one pretty good learning, after I had installed installed

The other day I had got the XPI File for hydbridfox ready and passed around
to some testers to play around with it. Basically, monkey test it.
And I gave them a much smaller Eucalyptus Private Cloud setup, which h... (more)
If last Sunday I had Michelangelo ballast accounts now Canon's turn to Nikon.
We recently learned of the outcome of Nikon and accounts do not look as good
as promised. And is that the tsunami simulator of the current economic crisis
is taking is hitting all manufacturers but with nuances. And is that despite
the economic in the technical, if you know thanks to the internet again, are
getting to know many faults in the models that have been introduced this
year, issues that should be taken into account, not only but also Nikon Canon
and other manufacturers that have come up since ... (more)
A couple of days ago, our friend Jesus Leon put discussion one of the hottest
topics that are within the photographic world, "mobile photography, his
future and his view on the current scene." Well, it seems that one of the
best ways to complete this op-ed was the release of TIME magazine, which
comes out with one of their covers made with a smartphone, and more
specifically with the Hipstamatic app. Photography makes mention of the
natural disaster that struck meteorological United States this week,
Hurricane # Sandy. Moments like these are, which is seen as a sensor of a
