Why smartphones point to smarter cameras

by Volker Weber

The way we take and use photographs is changing. We click, tap, or swipe to take a photograph. We tweak them, adding effects and processing images, before sending them to Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr. We share them with friends, with family, with colleagues. They're stored in cloud photo galleries, synchronised across PCs, tablets and phones. They're printed in books, turned into mugs, used as screen backdrops, even as passwords.

The single-use camera is going the same way as the wristwatch.

I know a lot of people using their (smart)phone as watch, but only those who didn't wear a wristwatch before. But people who are wearing a wristwatch for all of their life (like me) keep wearing and using their wristwatch. It is simply faster to get the time this way.

I still have a wristwatch, but I have not looked at it in the last 5 years. It is a nice Titanium one, and it decorates the pole of my bed. Oh yes, it might need a new battery by now.

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
