Sharpcast media sharing

While flick.r is probably the most well-known tool to store, search, sort and share photos, a next logical step would be the synchronization between digital data between PC's, mobile devices and web sites. While I haven't had the time to take a closer look, I do recommend to take a look at Walt Mossberg's review of the product (or should we say, service) in the Wall Street Jurnal.

So far, it seems to only work with photos and is also constrained to mobile devices equipped with Windows Mobile 5.0, but that's probably only the beginning. What seems cool to me that any change that is made on one device gets instantly synchronized on the other available devices.

Well, let's see how this will develop further and what the competitors have planned ...

Matthias,

thanks for the mention - I encourage you to try Sharpcast Photos for yourself and let us know what you think; we'd be interested in hearing your feedback.

And you're right on - Windows Mobile is only the beginning. We'll be rolling our more mainstream phone support in '07.
