Why do you need a good cell phone camera?

Sun blocked by smoke

News might break out. Yesterday those of us at PodTech were smoked out by a grass fire across the street from our offices on Page Mill Road in Palo Alto. The fire started near the famous “dish” on Stanford University lands near freeway 280 and quickly moved toward Page Mill Road. Luckily no structures were involved but it caused a lot of smoke. It’s the first time I’ve been close to a news event with my cell phone camera.

I Twittered from my phone too, and it was interesting to see the responses from people who could see my photos and Twitters live. Damn I love my cell phone because of its camera. It’ll be very interesting to test out the new iPhone’s camera and compare it to the one in my Nokia N95.
