Amazing find for NYC fans, photography fans and history buffs!
 

Peruse Vintage Photographs of NYC With Your Morning Coffee:
What may well be the BEST collection of NYC photos ...ever!

My bud ( though I almost never see him anymore....) +RC Concepcion posted a really rad aerial shot of downtown NYC's Battery Park. And it brought back memories. Then it reminded me that a reader of my blog had emailed me asking where Id taken a photo of a girl getting out of a Rolls Royce. I knew it was in Harlem, But I couldn't remember for the life of me where. I called the stylist.. he was stuck too. So, while waiting for the info to come in...I started to search round for it on Google Image search and Pinterest.  

I stumbled upon what may be the BEST collection of NYC photos I've ever seen in my life.
It chronicles NY as it grew from 1490! Through to 1985. Tens of thousands of images. Stunning!
And I'm not exaggerating. It is basically a carefully curated collection of images taken from the recently publically released collection of images at New York's Department of Records. The curation is done by +Fine Print NYC. They are a printing service in NYC founded in 2004, Nike was their first client...and it seems everything they touch turns to gold! Their blog is one of the finest curations of art you can hope to enjoy. ( Definitely want to add this one to your +Flipboard's and your +feedly ! )
 

While I was looking through this time portal of a website...
I came across my FAVORITE place in ALL of NYC ( well one of them anyway!) Caffe Reggio ! And I knew it was a sign I should write a quick long but hopefully awesome? post and share it with you all to enjoy over your morning coffee!
I drag everyone and everyone to Reggio whenever possible! In fact when I 'HIRLed" with +Brian McDonald +Neeta Tolani +matthew rappaport +Boris Gorelik +Vivienne Gucwa and others It was here that we all got together! Its a super cool place, and as you can see in the photo its a historic one too, it was here the first cappuccino was first served in America! They still have the machine on display! The ceiling fan in the place...was in the movie Casablanca! This place is why youll hear me groan if you suggest Starbucks...hahah ( Im teasing.. take me to DnD for coffee and Im happy! )

Here are a few snips of photos...
I implore you to go check it out for yourself.. and share it with yoru kids! (or anyone who loves NYC!)  We've come a LONG way!
Photography will always be a powerfully insightful treasure to us no matter where the medium goes.  I think this collection proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt.!

Here's the link for the collections:

And be sure to check out +Fine Print NYC ! They do great things for art!

UPDATE: I just got off the phone with Joseph over at +Fine Print NYC  and I have to tell you this is undoubtedly a labor of love. These guys are all born and raised Ne Yorkers, and as Joe explained it to me..we didn't even go away for school, all of us went to colleges here in the city. 
It takes them 4 to six weeks to finish one gallery, and thats with a team of several people working on it! Most certainly looking to doing some work with these people in the future.. the simply 'get it' !

Finally a true Android backup solution. I cannot wait for the finished product.
 
Android App Backup - super ultra alpha

Linked below is the rootless [1] app (and app data) backup solution I've been working on. Will only work on Android 4.0+.

Right now, just app backup/restore to/from a computer browser is implemented. Will be working on cloud backup and sync (via Google Drive) next. Probably only works on Firefox and Chrome. IE blows.

[1] Current version requires root. The rootless version has a PC side install that I am not ready to alpha/release yet.

Grab it while you can
 
Get photoshop CS2 for free (legally)

Note - Adobe is being hammered right now so the links are mostly not working. Best bookmark the link and check back later in the day.

Adobe's giving away CS2. I've seen some comments saying it doesn't play well with current Mac OS - but Windows machines are fine with it apparently. Anyway, no harm in downloading it to try it out.

If you want some tutorials on what to do with Photoshop once you've got it, I post tutorials on G+ (https://plus.google.com/u/0/100445521601957994193/posts/ePfmrWSyRcW) and collate them on my blog: http://www.fantasticmaps.com/category/tips-and-tricks/
