From the iPhone to the Met: Changing The Way We ‘See’ Art Online
Smartphone apps like Google Goggles have fundamentally changed the way we look at art, providing instant information about the work itself.
Go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, or the Getty Museum, and download the Google Goggles app for Android or iPhone. Snap a picture of the art that you’re looking at. Goggles will pull up the work of art’s history, bibliography of its creator and perhaps even a story of the collection from the Met’s mobile-optimized website.
Apple Plots Its TV Assault
Apple Inc. is moving forward with its assault on television…working on its own television that relies on wireless streaming technology to access shows, movies and other content. Steve Jobs envisioned building a TV that would be controlled by Apple’s mobile devices.
Google Inc. is trying to enable users to access apps and Internet video on traditional TVs through its Google TV software, which shares some technology with its Android mobile operating system.
IMO, we can get ready to see the iPad enlarged to the size of flat screen TV in the near future… the same way the iPhone was enlarged to become the iPad…cool stuff.
