Welcome to the 77th Feature of
Friday’s Informal Facebook Films!
Oh, hi! Welcome to the 77th feature of Friday’s Informal Facebook Films! Did you know that in Bingo, ball number 77 is called “all of the sevens?”
ProxToMe Sends Files From Your iPhone To Everyone In The Room!
Have you ever wanted to share a file with multiple people in a room through sheer smartphone magic? Now you can!
ProxToMe, a file-sharing app, detects other users of the app within a 250 feet-radius of your mobile device, and then allows you to share pictures, videos, audio and even presentations into their Dropbox via Bluetooth.
The app currently uses Facebook as a quick way to authenticate and connect users so that they’re able to see each other and interact through chat, but developer Carlo Capello said they’ll be considering additional log-in options.
This is sure to be a great way for artists to share music with audience members, or maybe even for teachers to distribute content to students.
Oww, My Asteroids!
Did that meteor in Russia last week scare the Bieber out of you? Fortunately, scientists are working on a solution to protect us…
From the meteor that broke up over Russia to a near-miss with Asteroid DA14, last week almost made you think the sky WAS falling. Fortunately, scientists have been working on an early warning system, set for completion in 2015.
This new Asteroid Terrestrial-Impact Last Alert System, or ATLAS, will feature a series of telescopes with ultra-high resolutions cameras scanning space from two locations in Hawaii. Once active, it will offer a one-week warning for asteroids up to 50-yards in size and 3-weeks for 150-yarders; a size that could wipe out an entire country!
Supposedly that will be enough time to evacuate people, make other preparations and convince Bruce Willis and his drilling crew to save the world. OK, we made up that last part, but it made for an entertaining movie.
Way better than “Deep Impact…” Anyway, while we’ll soon have a great early warning system, no word on what ideas – if any – science has on deflecting an actual impact.
What do you use to share large files? Would you like $20?
Google Drive is great… if other people have Google Drive. Same with DropBox. YouSendIt is a little confusing sometimes. So, tell us, what do you use to share large files with your team or clients?
If you share something that is easy-to-use and effective, and we like it… Jack will send you a book with a twenty dollar bill in it. For real. Comment.
That’s all the time we have for today. We hope you have a great weekend, and we’ll look forward to seeing you next Friday!
