LDV Vision Summit : A recap

Tell me something I don’t know. Every year, this is the challenge raised by the LDV Vision Summit in front of an audience made of experts in their fields, scientists, researchers, founders, CEO’s, investors and pundits. And every year, the same reaction: Wow, I didn’t know that. The 2016 edition, which just closed a few days ago, did not disappoint. In a field where breakthroughs are seemingly far between, there is still room for anyone to discover research, studies, applications or companies that reveal yet another…

Moving beyond the ”top ranking or perish” app world

With more and more photo and video apps listed in the iTunes and Google Play stores (around 80K at this point, more than double the number of two years ago), it’s no surprise that breaking into the app stores’ top rankings is getting harder and harder. But it’s not just a matter of so many apps vying for the coveted top store rankings.

Photobucket’s mobile arsenal: photo sharing, photo output, multimedia cards, and now mobile partnerships

If any cloud photo storage provider knows how overwhelmed its customers are by the sheer quantity of their photos and the challenges they face to find the photos that matter, it’s Photobucket.  No wonder that, in the last few years, they’ve allocated substantial resources to solve these problems for their users. 12-year-old Photobucket is headquartered in Colorado, a long way away from the startup buzz at the coasts’ technology hubs. Still, each month, Photobucket quietly serves 60 million unique users 120 billion photos and videos through…

TechCrunch Disrupt NY : A quick tour

While it might still be called disrupt, it’s probably just by habit than real meaning. As we walked the aisles of TechCrunch Disrupt NY, we didn’t see, at least in photo space, a start-up that would fit this epithet.  Certainly some great ideas, lots of passion, and definite sense that the space still shows a lot of potential. Disruption? well, you be the judge.… Held at the Manhattan center in mid- town New York, a space better suited for a stage performance rather  than a…

While there might be a future for Stream, we are only interested in the development of Photos, possibly named Photo +. The trigger of this announcement is certainly Apple’s imminent launch of Photo for OS X, already available in beta release. Due to replace the clunky iPhoto and the well liked Aperture, the Apple service will use iCloud as…
