Turn iPhone Photos into Postcards – No Stamps Required!

first_imgThe Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts Are you an iPhone-equipped world traveler? If so, then you’re going to love Postino, the latest app from AnguriaLab. This mobile application lets you take iPhone photos and turn them into postcards which you can send to your family and friends. And no, they don’t mean “e-cards” (although Postino supports those, too) – they mean actual, printed out, physical cards sent through the good ol’ fashioned snail mail service.Postino is not the first iPhone application that allows you to send postcards via your mobile device. However, it’s definitely the one to beat at this point. Their competitors, Go Postal and TapTap Cards, both have one major limitation: postcards can be sent to U.S. addresses only. They also don’t offer an e-card option. When you launch the Postino app, you can choose to snap a photo or choose one from your library. You’re able to adjust the image by zooming in and positioning it however you want and optionally choose a frame to go around the photo. Then you enter in your message, signature, and the address of the person you wish to send the card to. If you’d like, you can also optionally draw the signature on the phone’s screen using your finger so it looks more like an actual signature. If you enter in an email address, the “postcard” is sent virtually, like an e-card. If you enter in a street address however, a postcard will be printed out on high-quality paper and mailed for you. You can even have your GPS location included in the card! The only cost to you is the price of the “virtual stamp” – $1.99 (U.S.) which is paid via Paypal. Postino is available now in the iTunes App Store for free.center_img What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Tags:#mobile#Product Reviews#web sarah perezlast_img read more

Promises Delivered

first_imgFigure 2 – Source: Intel internal measurements with preliminary Nehalem-EX results.My friends, this 55x result is off the chart from our promises of years ago!  Does performance matter?  We think so.  In so many ways, the quicker a job gets done or the more responsive a server is, the quicker a solution is found or more satisfied the end customer becomes – improving ROI or allowing for more options to be explored in the same amount of time.  That’s how we hope to fulfill our promise.There a lot of benchmarks and metrics, some probably useful, some not – but what’s important to you?  What do you look for when deciding whether to buy a “big iron” computer or a couple of smaller standard ones?  Let us know! Figure 1- Source: http://download.intel.com/pressroom/kits/events/idffall_2007/BriefingSmith45nm.pdf In the multi-processor space, we’re seeing the same trend.  Our upcoming launch of the next generation Intel® Xeon® processor (codenamed “Nehalem-EX”) is a WOW – even bigger than the 5500 series launch (formerly “Nehalem-EP”).  We’ve already disclosed some details – like delivering greater than nine times the memory bandwidth available to the applications over the 7400 series (formerly “Dunnington”), and we also talked publicly about being able to drive three times the number of transactions in database workloads.  The recent SuperComputer trade show (SC’09) had more discussion supporting that indeed this is a processor to keep an eye on for even HPC workloads – compute demand continues to be insatiable for researchers. Intel woke up many years ago and realized that if we didn’t keep sharpening our skills and a laser focus on delivering better experiences for our customers that they would go away.  And they started to.  So, a promise was made (and kept to-date) that we would deliver performance that mattered to our customers.  This turned into the “tick-tock” model where we shrink our manufacturing process every other year and on the alternate years we introduce a new microarchitecture.  You probably already have been reading about the multiprocessor segment (MP or EX-expandable servers as we call them internally); and you likely have heard rumblings about “Nehalem-EX”, but I wanted to let you know what I’ve seen on the performance side to-date.I dug up this old chart from 2007 (originally in a press briefing from 2004) talking about how we forecasted performance gains expected over the next 5 years or so (and no, we didn’t sandbag J).center_img By Frank Jensen, Performance Marketing EngineerData Center Group Marketing, Intellast_img read more

In his first competition in 10 months, Woods had plenty of speed and power in his swing, shot three rounds in the 60s at the Hero World Challenge and tied for ninth against an 18-man field, 10 shots behind Rickie Fowler.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSBoxers Pacquiao, Petecio torchbearers for SEA Games openingSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingMore important than his score was his form: Woods looked strong and fit with his swing and his posture all through the week.He has not said where he will play first in 2018.

Woods hired him as a consultant late that year as he talked about a “new old swing” he would try to employ.Como said in a text message that Woods’ “electrifying play” in the Bahamas was the byproduct of “a lot of hard work over the last few years while fighting through injury and pain,” and he felt there was plenty of enthusiasm for next year.“When our professional relationship began, I was asked to help Tiger utilize his own instincts and feel while playing pain free,” Como said. “I think we’ve accomplished that and I’m proud of the results. Tiger is ready to have an incredible run in his career. I’m eager to watch what will be one of the most exciting sports comebacks of all time.”ADVERTISEMENT Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ After 30 years, Johnlu Koa still doing ‘hard-to-make’ quality breadslast_img read more
