Check out this – Remember Opera, the little browser that could for a while…
They are back and taking a new stab at the browser space with Opera Unite – supposed to contain server in the browser – kind-of a P2P platform but not just for stealing videos and music. (Are there other things worth sharing? I think so…)
Incidentally, I especially like Discovery channel voice…
As far as whether this is useful – I think it could be indeed.
My friend Michael Berkowitz and I created a product called Pixley Album a few years ago that does exactly this for picture sharing.
The theory was that we all take lots of pictures with out digital cameras and we often manage to get the pictures onto our PC’s but we rarely share the pictures.
Pixley Album automatically takes all shared images and serves them to your friends (or the whole world if you want) arranging them in albums – like a simple version of snapfish.
Looking forward to seeing what people do with this….
