Smile... looking good, gorgeous, as ever! It wasn't just you that my


camera captured just then. Along with millions of pixels digital


photographs can take a ton of other information. Your location. Shutter


speed./Settings. The list is amazingly long. For years all this


extra information was largely ignored by everyone except the pros,


but these days apps and software used by we mere mortals are using


more and more of this metadata. It could be time to give it a little


bit of respect as Ian Hardy explains in New York. Turnover your


photos from decades long gone and you might find scribblings on the


back. Who? What? When? Where? That was your grandfather's version of


metadata. But today's digital photo filed not only collects all the


technical information, but allows shooters to add many personal


details as well. Metadata or software used to be a pros only


world, but the Giants, Lightroom and aperture, have both dropped


their prices dramatically. And Linn has emerged of ring the ability for


anyone to add captions, key words, and other metadata quickly and


efficiently. But photographers in the 21st century, like Alan Shapiro,


face another problem. They need to insure the metadata, which can


include but important copyright information, sticks to be


photographed wherever it goes online. Traditionally that has been


tricky. Metadata is important to anyone, whether you're a


professional or amateur, anyone who wants to share their photograph, be


it with family... I have had family come for family reunions and some


of them want photos, I just send them to my SmugMug website, I don't


sell to them, I could, but I don't, because I like them. They can


download and all of the data I have added to my photo travels with it.


SmugMug has become popular with photographers because it was one of


the first to acknowledge the importance of metadata and leave it


intact throughout the import, storage, export and distribution


process. Some websites strip it without warning to say bandwidth


costs. But creating metadata or with photographs can be a tedious


and time-consuming project. Photosmith 3 is a tablet app that


sinks with Lightroom and catalogues on ago. The first two versions


released by part-time developers that started it as a hobby got


mixed reviews primarily because of an Apple's ioS restrictions, but


this version will finely and chain photographers from their desktops


and laptops forever. It puts metadata into the hands of the


amateur for the first time in the mobile space. There's At the chalk


and Lightroom in the desktop and laptop space, but in terms of


mobile tagging it is not there on the iPad. You can edit the exposure


but you can't edit the metadata in any meaningful way. Are the most


logical moment to add metadata is when the camera is clicked or the


few seconds after. Devices can already at GLS -- GPS co-ordinates


and identify people within the frame. The next batch of cameras


might be able to take dictation on the spot, turn it into text and


added to the file. Photographic metadata has become very important


for a whole new genre of apps. Paul Mayne is the inventor of the


incredibly simple Day One. One way of recording your thoughts is to


open the app whenever something happens and start typing. The entry


created will be time, date and location sensitive. But if it is


not convenient to stop and type you can simply take a photo with your


device and wait until later when the image metadata becomes


invaluable to the app. You add that photo to the entry, it immediately


prompts you, would you like to change the entry to this photos day


and this location? At that moment it all grab the weather, up to 30


days back. From there you can expand and start writing about who


you were with and what you were doing, what you ate, things like


that. Everpix is another kind of record keeping apps with the


ambitious goal of finding the meaning within your photographs. It


sucks up your collection and repackage his it, having analysed


metadata and semantic information. Algorithms look at the pixels and


try to work out what is actually happening in the picture. It then


displays one or two great shots of each event which hopefully triggers


more memories for the viewer, who can then start digging down in more


detailed. Collections are massive. There's a lot of photos. For, light,


users, they end up being, like, last under an avalanche of data


which paradoxically becomes like a noise. You take a lot, you want to


remember a lot, you want to take with you a lot, and then, you know,


in two or three days it is just noise, you lose it. Despite the


enormous upside of keeping metadata intact There's also the flipside to


consider. Loading photos on to your favourite social media website


without stripping personal information out just the host and


potentially the world a whole new sense of who you are, where you are


and what you have been up to. The Ian Hardy. For more information


than you can possibly handle. Next up, a look at this week's Tech News.


US prosecutors had taken down a digital cash exchange they say was


used by cyber criminals to launder around $6 billion. Costa Rica based


Liberty Reserve had essentially function as a black market Bank and


allegedly process 55 million transactions for its one million


users. They were engaged in credit card fraud, hacking and child


pornography from the Stock Facebook said it will review how it deals


with controversial, harmful and hateful contender after admitting


current measures are ineffective. It follows sustained pressure after


a spate of recent incidents, including videos of real life


beheadings being shared across the site. Meanwhile socials Grant


booking platform Pinterest said it will allow nudity, despite its


previous efforts to come up with innovative ways to block it. The


world's largest equipment firm has developed face tracking technology


to prevent accidents caused by fatigue. Caterpillar's DSS system


uses a camera to detect a driver's pupil size, how frequently they


blink and how often they are keeping their eyes shut. Finally


this original Apple computer from 1976 has sold at a German auction


for more than $650,000. The Apple Wolverhampton Wanderers consisting


of just this motherboard went to an anonymous buyer in Asia. It was one


of the first 50 built by Steve mozzie Yak- and Steve Jobs. It is


one of only six still working. Technology continues to worm its


way into all of our lives, not just in our house -- hands and our homes,


but into our cities and on to its structures to. It's no surprise


that in the global heartland of San Francisco have it has found its way


on to an iconic landmark. We went to meet the hi-tech art is to has


been making the Bay Bridge even Every day at dusk, the San


Francisco Bay Bridge sparkles to life. And a mesmerising array of


LEDs dances across the bridges suspension cables. Call the


daylights, this aid million-dollar work of art celebrates the bridge's


7th -- 70th birthday -- $8 million. This LED sculptor, the world's


largest, would not exist if it were not for technology. How do you lock


meant an iconic landmark? This artist started with 25,000 lights -


- augment. This is intelligent lighting. There have been a lot of


bridges that have been lit, but not with this sort of thing where you


have 25,000 individual controllable points. The LEDs, made by Philips,


are off the shelf. But it is doubtful many use them the way that


Villarreal has. From start to finish it was a 2.5 year Endeavour,


filled with hurdles. The physical challenges were how do we installed


these LEDs, where do we put the power supply? How do we get day 2


to them? They all have to receive data. They have huge racks of


routers and all kinds of things that you would associate with an IT


project and not with an art work. At light -- at night when traffic


was alive -- at its lightest they installed over 700 power and data


boxes. The main brain of the daylights is secured in the


bridge's beefy central Anchorage. Even this seemingly basic plastic


clip, which fastens the LEDs and courts to the bridge table, is the


result of hi-tech workmanship. To design is part entrepreneur Timothy


Childs and his team embark on six weeks of rapid prototyping using a


3D printer. The cool thing about 3D printing, we were able to to 10


different exact shade of the Channel to hold the wires perfectly.


50,000 of these polycarbonate clips firmly attached the LEDs to the


bridge. With the massive canvas in place, it was Leo Villarreal's turn


to put tenons -- technology at work. Its light can be controlled


individually -- each light. My challenge is to figure out what


number is to send the light to. Each is expecting one bike. 25,000


bites at least 30 times a second across the bridge. Of the end


result is an epic display of patterns which will never repeats


during the two-year installation. Watch the daylights and you will


see hints of rainfall. Maybe the Matrix. Or maybe stardust. What you


won't see are the racks, routers and software that made it all


We have talked about the fact that these things can take pretty good


photos and videos these days, if you have the time, you can get some


really good results, you could even make a half-decent movie. But what


happens if you want to BDO that special event and you only have one


shot at it? The best thing to do is to get...


If there is one thing social media has shown us, is that we can be


spectacularly self- obsessed, from minor status Updates to food


worship. Sharing our well it with the wider world is becoming second


nature. -- our world. They now it is moving beyond the text and


pictures. Twitter bought a app that offers six-second segments to shed.


On the horizon, Google Glass readily catches your point of view,


and shares it online. The thing is, even these so-called social video


services are captured from a single source, you, and most would


struggle to meet any modicum of quality control. Say goodbye to


your shoddy singular shot, and beat her load to crowdsourced coverage.


Biclone is an app that automatically edits to get up


footage promotable mobiles in the same room, at the same time. It can


synchronise up to four videos at a time to make a malty and called


edit of an event, especially handy at memorable occasions. Already


available for Apple and android, it has recently been integrated into


the Windows Power what Nokia 925. Streamweaver works in the same way.


It plays the video in a split screen format, like a CCTV monitor.


Hardly a Scorsese masterpiece, but great for discovering different


perspectives. But the last thing most people think about when


recording video is the sound. Until you play it back. If you are at a


concert, a good audio is crucial. 45Sound replaces rubbish audio from


our mobiles with high quality sound, straight from the mixing desk at a


Qantas, leaving us to it concentrate on getting the best


shot we can. -- a concert. This is an incredible view, it is not


generally available, unless you are the artist or the crew. But this is


not bad. Maybe back here is a bit of a stretch. But it does not


matter where you sit, because this app also mixes together footage


from everyone in the room, to create an overall concert video.


Instead of geotagging, the clips have to be directly uploaded to 45


sound's side, and it is there where the magic happens. It isn't with


the Professional hi-def track, through a specifically designed


algorithm. -- directly centre. Recording some sound is vital.


Those kind of cliched camera shots, we want, I want to it and watch me


is exactly as the fans saw. It is not just the fans and the company,


artists are encouraged to take part with deep promise of a nicely made

crackly, grey anything on the video. It is the whole interaction. --


grainy thing. To come a long and feel like you are getting closer to


the artist, but with many apps, is sharing caring? If you video a band


and then upload it, there are lots of Copyright questions. Who owns


the copyright in the video? In theory, you should, as the person


you recorded it. But when you up load it on to a site, it will


depend on the terms and conditions as to whether you are giving away


the Copyright. The terms and conditions on the ticket back to


port may also say something about the rights. The video sharing


extends into practical uses as well. Imagine wanting to find out how the


queue is light at your favourite sandwich shop, where that there are


parking spaces available at your local supermarket. Koozoo S A San


Francisco app completely found it on video sharing. -- is. It will


show you up to the minute information about local services,


or maybe just an insight into the state of your street. Assuming they


have permission to film. If a TV company goes out, they get


permission from everybody there. People on their iPhone are not


doing that. Surely it will only work with all these apps when


enough people want to record a video to keep the start-ups in


business, but if collaborative video does catch on, and we will


have more ways to capture, mix and share our treasured memories with


more people than ever before. Back in April, we reported on


Google afterlife, which is the unofficial life given today in


active account manager, which lets you bequeath your data to someone


you trust. But what if you do not want your digital like to be over,


when your biological one comes to an end? It sounds morbid, but Kate


Russell has an app fort that as well.


No-one wants to think about death, but if it does come suddenly, would


you be comforted by the chance to lead a final message for your loved


ones? Do you think they will be comforted? That is the premise


behind a Facebook app that lets you record a Web can message and


assigned trustees who will report your death to the app, so your


final thoughts can be posted postmortem. Taking it one step


further, DeadSocial lets you schedule posts at these into the


future, uploading video or text so you can keep posting photos of your


breakfast or perhaps more appropriately, wishing your social


media buddies happy birthday from well beyond the grave. It may seem


a bit creepy, but I can see how it will be comforting to note that you


can see -- lead some last words were your friends and loved ones.


One afterlife app that goes beyond a good idea is lives on .org. It's


tag line is, when your heart stops beating, you will keep on tweeting.


It claims you will analyse your tweet so it can keep on posting


about stuff you like after you are gone. It is not actually up and


running yet, but assuming they get it developed and improved in your


lifetime, you can sign up for news on the site. If you look up into


the sky at night and wonder what you are singing but do not have a


smartphone running one of those fancy GPS stargazer apps to inform


you, never fear. Art of Stars is here. This app uses your IP address,


which is the unique identifier of your computer on the Web to draw a


map, so it really is using all of the technological Bells and


whistles to deliver a map of the stars over your head, into your


browser. The result is beautifully simple, a star chart in your


browser. I do not know about you, but as soon as anyone points a


camera at me, I get an overwhelming urge to plink. Windows Phone 8


owners can do away with that, with Link, a free photo editing tool


that takes a burst of frames, so you can quickly choose which one is


best. This app is great for capturing action shots as well,


like a dog leading to catch a ball, or your children leaping into a


swimming pool. Just point, shoot, and pick the perfectly-timed


exposure to share. If you are more of a words person, this fine game


also caught my eye, for windows pictures, one word. But again you


guess what it is? His is a great little filler game on the train. It
