In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at the disappearance of commercial photo finishing, Macworld's Lost Photos app, free technical PDFs at c't and Game Boy camera shots from 2000.

  • Kirk Tuck reports Costco can "no longer could actually print from negatives. No prints from film of any kind. None." His research suggests photo finishing is on its way out. (Buy a film scanner to make your own prints.)
  • Macworld has updated Lost Photos, a free OS X app to log into your email accounts to collect all the photos you've received (and probably forgotten about). It works with Gmail/Google Apps, Hotmail, Yahoo!, AOL, iCloud, MobileMe/.Mac, Ymail, Rocketmail, AT&T, British Telecom Yahoo and Xtra New Zealand.
  • Derrick Story points to Free PDF Library of Technical Articles at c't Digital Photography, where he now serves as an editor.
  • If New York City photographed with the Game Boy Camera in 2000 isn't enticing enough, there's a link to some color photos done with the same camera using red, green and blue filters.

More to come...
