The infographic that rules them all.
(Who am I kidding? I still love these things.)
Using an iPhone as an iPad camera is easy. Download the CAMERA-A app ($0.99) on your iPad and the free CAMERA-B app on your iPhone 3GS. Open both apps and they’ll automatically connect via WiFi. That’s it!
Yes, the first version [of the iPad] will be flawed. Yes, it will be hard to tear your beloved laptop out of your hands. Yes, it won’t live up to all of its promises. Yes, it will take time. Maybe years.
And, like your cameraphone, it’s going to sneak up on you. But one day, pretty soon, you’ll realize that you haven’t used your laptop in days. That you tend to grab your iPad first whenever you need to visit a website or answer email. That your laptop never leaves your desk anymore.
It starts tomorrow.
iPad update: yes it is a big iPod touch, but don’t let that fool you. Totally a new experience. You can actually be productive, watch movies, read, surf the web. Once you hold it, you will need one.
An inspiring way to join a startup
I get asked all the time “how do i join a startup?”
There are a number of ways to do it but two of our portfolio companies recently told me about people that wanted to work for their companies so badly they offered to work for free for a month.
These folks had the self confidence and belief that after a month the company would fall in love with their determination, talent, personality and contribution.
Now this isn’t going to work for every person and won’t work for every startup either.
But it’s quite inspiring nonetheless.
As Bijan points out, this doesn’t work for everyone. But when it does, it’s amazing.
You’re not devaluing yourself or your work. As one commenter puts it, it’s “sweat equity.”
Real Kick uses little puffs of air from your iPhone speakers to blow a real-life styrofoam ball across the field. Awesome!
The New Dork — Entrepreneur State of Mind
Watch this. RIGHT NOW.
Nearly a year old and growing fast, Kickstarter’s been featured in Wired, the New York Times’ Year in Ideas, and listed at #1 on Silicon Alley Insider’s Hot NYC Startups to Watch. We’re determined to change the way that ideas are funded and looking for others like us.
First, Soundcloud; then, Photojojo. Now, Kickstarter! I love seeing startups build their teams—especially all of the amazing, cool startups that I admire.
