Search Flickr Images with FlickrCash - Better than Flickr

Aishwarya Rai at Taj Mahal
FlickrCash is a Flickr Photo Search engine on steroids with some really unique and useful capabilities. You can use it to quickly find flickr photographs on any topic or even sell your own creative work.

You type in a search term(s) and FlickrCash will show square thumbnail pictures of all the matching images on Flickr in a mosaic tiled interface. The number of search results displayed on one page depend on the size of your browser window - the larger the browser window, the more images you will see in one go.

If you don't like an image, hit the cross button and it disappears immediately from the search results. As you hover your mouse over the Flickr images, you can read the associated tags and descriptions.

And if you plan to download an image from the search results, FlickrCash will show direct links to all the available sizes of that image. Unfortunately, you have to be logged in else FlickrCash adds a watermark to the larger version of the image.

Image searches can also be restricted based on the date when the picture was taken or the Creative Commons License associated with the images. Very cool.

If you own a Flickr account, you can use the Flickr cash service to sell your images. Just tag the images you want to sell with "photoforsale:price=auto" or "photoforsale:price= 24.95" (or whatever price you want to charge).   [Thanks Dr. Augustine]

How to Download Contacts from Facebook To Outlook Address Book

Facebook users are not too pleased with the "walled garden" approach of Facebook. The reason is simple - while you can easily import your Outlook address book and GMail contacts into Facebook, the reverse path is closed. There's no "official" way to export your Facebook friends email addresses or contact phone numbers out as a CSV file so that you can sync the contacts data with Outlook, GMail or your BlackBerry. Some third-party Facebook hacks like "Facebook Sync" (for Mac) and "Facebook Downloader" (for Windows) did allow you to download your Facebook friends' names, emails, mobile phone number and profile photo to the desktop but they were quickly removed for violation of Facebook Terms of Use. How to Download Contacts from Facebook There are still some options to take Friends data outside the walls of Facebook wall.

PhishTank Detects Phishing Websites by Digg Style Voting

OpenDNS, a free service that helps anyone surf the Internet faster with a simple DNS tweak , will announce PhishTank today. PhishTank is a free public database of phishing URLs where anyone can submit their phishes via email or through the website. The submissions are verified by the other community members who then vote for the suspected site. This is such a neat idea as sites can be categorized just based on user feedback without even having to manually verify each and every submission. PhishTank employs the "feedback loop" mechanism where users will be kept updated with the status' of the phish they submit either via email alerts or a personal RSS feed . Naturally, once the PhishTank databases grows, other sites can harness the data using open APIs which will remain free. OpenDNS would also use this data to improve their existing phishing detection algorithms which are already very impressive and efficient. PhishTank | PhishTank Blog [Thanks Allison] Related: Google
