Tinder adds Snapchat-style self-destructing picture sharing

The massively popular Tinder dating app has added Snapchat-style self-destructing image sharing between users. In addition to swiping Yay or Nay on eligible local bachelors and bachelorettes, you can now blast out pictures to those you’ve successfully been matched with. The catch is pictures go out to all matches you’ve made and the shot deletes itself after 24 hours. Those on the receiving end can like or pass on pictures just like they do user profiles, or leave a comment as a reply.

These “Moments” have some light filtering and editing capabilities, such as text and marking up, though you can just share pictures as shot. Unfortunately, you can’t add them from the device gallery. Besides that, the rest of Tinder got a bit of a visual update, including a new look for the menu system.

How many of you guys and gals use Tinder? Have any luck with it? How about Snapchat? Do you see yourself sending pictures on Tinder through Moments, even if you can’t selectively send them to individuals?

Vegas Is Tearing Down This Empty Hotel That Never Opened

Vegas Is Tearing Down This Empty Hotel That Never Opened

If you’ve visited Vegas anytime since 2009, you’ve likely seen the empty hotel. It doesn’t have any signage; instead, it is often swaddled in ads, like the world’s priciest billboard—a bloated Cirque du Soleil-wrapped blue whale hovering over the Strip for four lonely years. Now a court ruling is finally putting the doomed hotel out of its misery.

This Is What Happens When You Turn a Street Into a Slip ‘n Slide

This Is What Happens When You Turn a Street Into a Slip 'n Slide

Closing streets to cars is one thing—how about flooding them with water and letting people slide down head first? Hundreds of Brits got to do just that when a busy street in Bristol was transformed into a fully operational water slide today. As expected, the photos are absolutely incredible.

Apple hires Bobby Hollis to further push environmental responsibility

Apple is on a roll when it comes to environmental friendliness. After previously being criticized by Greenpeace, the company has improved infrastructure with more reliance on green technology, as well as taking a serious stance with recycling and other environmentally friendly initiatives. Now Apple has also recently hired Bobby Hollis, to help speed up the process as the new senior renewable energy manager.

Hollis actually took the post last month, after working at NV Energy as vice president of renewable energy and origination. Cult of Mac came across the information on Hollis’ LinkedIn profile, which states the reasoning behind the new position is to “help Apple lead in the goal of a greener internet.” It’s possibly no coincidence that NV Energy actually partnered with Apple to construct the solar power farm that powers the Reno data center.

Joining Lisa Jackson, Apple’s top environmental adviser, we’re sure Hollis will be heavily involved with the upcoming Apple 2 campus, which will utilize renewable energy sources.

CFMulti DSLR CompactFlash media card adapter review

Need to transfer photos from a CompactFlash-equipped camera to a Mac with an SDXC card slot? No problem with the CFMulti

With the exception of the Mac Pro, every Mac that’s available these days has a built-in SDXC card slot. That makes it convenient to transfer digital photos and video from cameras that use SD card slots. If you prefer a camera that uses CompactFlash you’re not out of luck, fortunately. The solution for that problem is the CFMulti from Synchrotech.

The CFMulti is a CompactFlash-format flash media card reader. It works with SDHC, SD, MMC, MMC+ and even Eye-Fi cards (with some caveats).

My first DSLR is an older Canon model that uses CompactFlash. It shows some wear but it’s still going strong years after I first picked it up. I use it regularly. When I got my Retina MacBook Pro last year, I didn’t have a good way of moving files between the devices except to use a USB cable or an external USB flash media reader.

Either option was slow and cumbersome. Either way, I ended up with a cable or USB box in the bottom of my backpack or cluttering my desk. I bought the CFMulti after I read about it on the Digital Photography Review forums.

With the CFMulti inserted into the Canon EOS 30D’s body, I’m able to take as many pictures as my SDHC cards can hold. When it comes time to transfer the files, I simply pop out the CFMulti from the Canon, pull the SD card, then slide it into the SDXC slot reader on the side of my Mac. I import the photos into my photo cataloging app, eject the card and start over again.

That caveat I mentioned about Eye-Fi cards: It’s limited. Read Synchrotech’s FAQ to learn more about the limitations.

The good

  • Less bulky and cluttering than cable or USB adapter.
  • Works with several different varieties of Flash media card.
  • Keeps you working with the camera you prefer.

The bad

  • Limited Eye-Fi compatibility
