[Sharing] Cooliris is really cool

Cooliris is really cool. It deserves the word “stunning”. 🙂 Actually it is winer of Best Design of The 2008 Crunchies.

An interesting point of Cooliris is that it is actually a “plugin” of your browser software, so Cooliris’s version includes FireFox, IE, Safari etc. versions. More interestingly, Cooliris also provides iPhone/iPod Touch version as well. I have a feeling that this really represents the trend “browser and iPhone as platforms”: more and more applications will be deployed within browser and iPhone.

Anyway, try Cooliris if you have not. Really stunning visual effect.
