If you're a photography junkie who absolutely loves wiling away time on the popular photo-sharing social network, Instagram, chances are high that you've seen a picture or two of today's United States president election ballot. However patriotic these pictures may be, whether they're sporting a red, white and blue color scheme or not, it's likely that the simple act of posting a ballot picture could result in a misdemeanor in your state of residence.
With all the tragedy in Haiti, heroes are being made every day. For one man, that hero was his iPhone, believe it or not. Dan Woolley, a U.S. citizen from Colorodo Springs, credits his iPhone with saving his life while he was trapped underground beneath the rubble of the Port-au-Prince hotel in Haiti. He was trapped with a compound fracture to his leg and a laceration on his head.
By now you probably know about the devastation in Haiti caused by the recent earthquake, and their people's desperate need for supplies. Celebrities and politicians are doing what they can to encourage citizens to help. Now software developers are jumping on the bandwagon, offering to donate the proceeds of various iPhone and Mac apps sold on Wednesday, January 20th (tomorrow) to aid in the Haiti relief efforts. The project started as a collaboration between developers Garret Murray and Second Gear. Since then, several other developers have signed on, and the list now includes more than 130 different apps for iPhone and Mac.
