I was skiing last week and noticed quite a few people using ‘selfie sticks’. You may love selfies, you may hate selfies, but these selfie sticks are actually quite a cool piece of hardware. They plug into your iPhone headphone socket and the button on the selfie stick acts as the shutter button for the iPhone camera. They work on Android phones as well.

The winner is the Looq DG ($20 from Amazon). Continue reading to find out why.

I’m giving one away so if you’d like to be in the chance to win your own Looq DG selfie stick just leave a comment below letting me know where I’ve hidden a picture of a green looq DG selfie stick. (It’s hidden in an old article!) The first person to find it will win it.

Apple has updated their iPhoto app to ‘Photos’ and included some pretty cool iCloud syncing.  All your photos are available everywhere all the time.  It keeps smaller copies of the photos on your iOS device while allowing the larger original ones to stay in the Cloud and it can download the larger files to your computer if you want. It’s easy to email a photo to someone from iCloud, even big movies.
