Vine and Tout iOS apps, symbols of the end of the photo era... replaced by the video one

Following previous posts in French "l'image fixe est elle morte ?", "au delà de l'image, mémoriser les sons", et  "Cinemagram, prémices de la photo de demain", here is a new one about the future of the photo or, my take on this future, the replacement of the photo by short video.

This time, I'll talk about Tout, an iOS app and Vine, another iOS app.

What is Tout?
Tout is a real-time information network for up-to-the-minute video updates across news, sports, politics, entertainment, or whatever moves you.

What is Vine?
Vine is the best way to see and share life in motion. Create short, beautiful, looping videos in a simple and fun way for your friends and family to see...
Vine videos last 6 seconds maximum.
Vine is a Twitter brand.

I'm persuaded that photo will soon become something rare, a niche activity for "experts", "passionate people", a bit like painting, sculpture, silent film or calligraphy. I've already details it on my previous posts on this topic. Photos don't render movement, have no sound. Boring isn't it?

I think short video will become the norm or communication.
And these two services are really good illustration of the actual trend. The first one bring you news in a minute, the other, 6 seconds scenes.

Use Vine a bit and then tell me:  Don't you think it's fascinating?
Just press screen for some seconds, change the angle of the film of the object filmed, repress the screen, and you get a little video, a little story will people moving, sounds, or things not moving is you just film a fix point, but with sound. It's brilliant, isn't it?

Use Tout and tell me: Would you use it every day?
Well, in my opinion, the interface is today a big ugly, content not really cool so it needs improvement but the 1 minute concept to get information. I bet on it! You ?

It's the future my firiends!
And photos, like silent film, the past...

Edit march 2013: Galaxy S4 is setting the stage for the end of the photo era: "There are now 12 shooting modes to choose from like, "Drama Shot" that lets you see all your action in one continuous time-lapse. Another feature is "Sound & Shoot", which stores sound and voice together as the picture is taken so you can see photos just as they happen."

La finance islamique, modèle de bon sens à suivre ?

tdi

Je vous invite à lire un petit article court et clair de lexpansion.com sur la finance islamique intitulé "La finance islamique, comment ça marche".

Si sur d'autres plans la charia (loi islamique) ne m'enthousiasme pas, appliquée à la finance, elle me paraît très saine.
A se demander si ce ne serait pas salvateur d'appliquer ses principes à toute la finance mondiale, car au delà de toute considérations religieuses, ceux-ci me semblent empreints de bon sens.

Je vous copie de l'article les bases de la finance islamique ci-dessous, et vous invite à lire dans l'article la description des différents produits islamiques présentés (Mourabaha, Ijara,Moucharaka, Sukuks, c'est quand même plus sympa que Livret A, LEP ou PEL ??? :p ) :

"La finance islamique fonctionne notamment dans le respect de trois grands principes de la charia : - la proscription des intérêts (riba), apparentés à de l'usure,
- le partage des risques et des profits entre prêteur …

Tipadvisor: from pretty useless rating to useful tagging and filtering

What is Tripadvisor?
A website where you put 3, 4, 5 stars to a place and write a little story.
Tripadvisor is cool to rate overall popularity of places but it's crap for all the rest.
Why?
Because they miss tags, the miss filters!!! They miss structured data. They focused on unstructured data with millions of stories. Unfortunately, transforming unstructured data into structured inputs is a headache.

You want the top 5 Italian restaurants in Paris? You got it in Tripadvisor and most of the time, it's good recommandations. Top restaurants deserve it.

For all the rest, look...

Want the top 5 Italian restaurants in the Paris's 15th district? Well, without "district" tag, no way.
Want the top 5 Italian restaurants in Paris with Veggie option? Well, you can type Ctrl F to find the word veggie in comments... except that comments are cropped... never mind, ok no way. The tag "veggie" is missing.
Want the top 5 Italian restaurants in Paris with a terrace? Well…
