Foodspotting is like Foodily without the recipes. Or Instagram solely for meals of food. In fact, you can connect your Instagram account to Foodspotting, and Instagram photos tagged with #food or #foodspotting will show up in your Foodspotting feed. (Maybe I need to wait longer for the two to sync, but the Instagram photo I tagged with the #foodspotting tag has yet to show up in my Foodspotting feed.) The app lets you upload … Read more
In the span of weeks, a friend of mine who shall remain nameless (but goes by the initials Elinor Mills) has become completely addicted to the photo-sharing app Instagram. The world has become one big Instagram photo opp for her as she points her iPhone at flowers, friends, train tracks, oil-slicked sidewalks, and anything else in her path--and still tries to get some shut-eye now and then.
Happily, I've come upon Stitchtagram, a service that makes custom handmade throw pillows from Instagram photos, and now feel confident that Elinor can stay close to her beloved app even while she rests up between Instagram shoots. … Read more
It's Tuesday again, and this time we are prepared.
On today's show, code in iBooks 2 points to possible Retina Display iPad; Casio does something other than make keyboards; our favorite people on Earth, analysts, comment on the upcoming year for Netflix; and we have a couple guesses about who Anonymous will attack next.
Also next week, or maybe the week after, is Humiliation Day. You know what's different about this Humiliation Day? For once, Karyne isn't the big loser. If you have any Humiliation Day ideas for Emily, or if you have any ideas about … Read more
The wife of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and the co-founder of Instagram are among the notable guests for tonight's State of the Union address by President Obama.
The presence of Laurene Powell Jobs and Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger signals that at least a part of the State of the Union will focus on technology, which President Obama has long argued can help improve the country's fortunes.
Releasing the guest list for the State of the Union address has increasingly become a way for the White House to call attention to an issue or initiative, using an individual … Read more
There are a ton of image-editing apps that add effects to your images, but what about video?
Anyone who uses an iPhone 4 or 4S knows the smartphone takes great-looking video, but your options are limited with the Apple app when it comes to adding effects. Don't underestimate the value of adding effects, either: a good effect can turn a mundane subject into a great video.
This week's collection of iOS apps is all about adding effects to your videos. The first two have social components that let you share your completed videos and follow other users. The last is more specifically for adding effects, but is lacking when it comes to social components (and that may be exactly what you're after).… Read more
Keeping up with his reputation as the first "Internet President," Barack Obama got in on the popular photo-sharing app Instagram this week.
The account is run by Obama 2012 staff members, who encourage users to share photos from the campaign trail using the hashtag #Obama2012.
So far, the account has posted three photos and gained more than 24,000 followers. … Read more
When we asked all you Crave readers to send in your best Instagram photos, we couldn't have imagined a better response. We received more than 200 submissions from around the world, many of them stunning.
Since then, we've showcased some our favorite photos of your friends and family, as well as beautiful cityscapes, water-themed images, and more.
Alas, all good things must come to an end. For our fifth and final gallery, we offer a look at how Crave readers creatively turned ordinary objects into extraordinary ones.
Thank you to everyone who sent in photos. We enjoyed looking through all the submissions and wish we could publish them all. That said, be sure to check out CNET's Facebook page next week, as we'll be publishing more of your photos there. … Read more
Over the past three days, we've seen some wonderful sights from around the world thanks to you all, but today, we thought it would nice to shine the light on you and your loved ones.
The fourth installment of our favorite Instagram photos series focuses on portraits of your family and friends. The smartphone has made it so much easier to capture memorable moments at all times, and there are some great subjects in here, from two sisters enjoying a day at the zoo to a reader having a drink with a cold-blooded friend.
As always, you can find the previous days' galleries below. Check back tomorrow for our fifth set of photos. Enjoy! … Read more
For the third installment in our series spotlighting Crave readers' Instagram creations, we're taking in some city sights.
Looking through the 200-plus photo submissions we received was like taking a mini-trip around the world--among others, we got great shots of busy highways in Los Angeles, Arkansas, Korea, and Karachi, Pakistan; a stunning aerial view of the Twin Cities; a sublime look toward the mountains from a balcony in Monterrey, Mexico; and a scene of urban ruins in Shreveport, La. By the time we were done scrolling through the pictures, we were ready to pack our suitcases.
Needless to say, it was tough picking our faves from the many city-related standouts, but we really liked the below photos for their composition, mood, and, in a couple of cases, sense of whimsy. Enjoy today's images, and be sure to check back tomorrow and the next day for the final two galleries in our series. … Read more

We'll be back tomorrow with another set of awesome photos; in the meantime, enjoy the two galleries below. … Read more
