Pingwire shows live stream of Twitpic photos

Pingwire pulls in the latest (and sometimes greatest) photos from TwitPic into a stream of ever-evolving thumbnails.


Here's a fun way to see new photos users are uploading to Twitter. Called Pingwire, this new tool grabs the latest photos from TwitPic and displays them in a never-ending stream of thumbnails.

If you find anything you like, you just click on it and it will take you to the source page on TwitPic where all the comments, view count, and original Tweet are stored.

TwitPic has its own recent uploads section made up of thumbnails, along with a moving map of recent photos, however I found Pingwire's simplistic stream more fun to let run in the background.

There are a few things to look out for though. For one you can't pause the stream, so if you want to click on any thumbnail to see more detail you have to be quick with your mouse. There's also no filter for adultish content, so you may see things pop up that you wouldn't want to see at work. Or ever.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
