Netflix instant watch on iPhone?Rumor is that Netflix is going to let iPhone users get in on the fun of streaming movies via WIFI. Users would love it of course, but how would they do it? The iPhone doesn’t support Flash, so it’s probably not going to be a web portal.

Netflix could develop its own app and do it all itself we suppose. How do you think AT&T would feel about users watching video on its wireless network without paying though? We would be surprised if this one panned out anytime soon.

VISA testing instant transaction confirmation alertsIt’s good to know what’s going on in your credit card account. It’s even better to know what’s happening in real-time. That’s why Visa is testing a real-time notification system for mobile phones. Users are able to choose the alert level (whether for all or only the expensive items) and even choose if they prefer SMS or Email alerts.

Currently VISA employees are testing the system to work out all the kinks. things out. Since we are dealing with VISA, we are guessing that the service won’t be free once it goes public, but that remains to be seen.

Polaroid is finally a thing of the past. Almost. You can probably still find film, but not for long. The Shelly E-Paper Camera could be the new way of doing Polaroid type instant photos in the future. According to the designer, “You take a picture, stock on the i-paper (consumables), send it via the Internet to other owners of i-paper therefore to wallets, picture frames, at home, in the office … everywhere and anywhere.”

That’s all well and good, but the pink with purple swirl design has to go. Grown men want instant photos too. Unless this is aimed squarely at little girls AND those select male adults that frequent Hannah Montana concerts. In that case, it’s probably not girlly enough.

Polaroid killing off instant film format

Polaroid killing off instant film format
The company most known for their instant film cameras and the instant film that went with them is closing it’s last film plants in Mass., a victim of the digital age. The fun instant Polaroids will soon be a thing of the past. To the horror of those who love all things retro, no more instant film will be produced.

Within the past two years, Polaroid had already stopped production on the instant cameras. The film will be available until around next year, so those who want or need more can still get it. It was only a matter of time before the 21st century caught up with Polaroid’s format. In the not too distant future, the only people interested in buying the film will be Hollywood production designers wanting to use it for authenticity in movies etc. Well, they had a good run, and captured many an embarrassing moment, the occasional ghost and various assorted naughty things. It’s been fun.
