apple computers + flickr = instant FPP

Try it; it's fucking awesome. I've got mine set on large, at the left side of the screen. (Or, if you don't have a mac/don't like photos, get the hell out of the thread.)

apple computers + FPP = knee jerk derision

This is the first justification I've seen to upgrade from 10.2 to whatever current mac OS version.

I don't have a Mac. Now I will do the Dance of Defiance in your precious, precious thread.

Anyway, are there no plans at all to make this available for non-Mac users? It does look nifty.

Along the same vein (since I've seen a lot of cuteness relatesd posts lately), Cute Overload has a Tickr-like app that scrolls all forms of cuteness across your screen using Slide.
(Works on both PC AND Mac)

I put this in the frown upon column.

Yet again, I've missed the birth of a MeFi running gag. Where did the column thing start?

Uh huh.

Well, no doubt someone will hack together linux and windows versions. Really, this FPP should have waited until that happened.

I thought it was cool. I had to quite running it so I could get some work done.

Wow, this is amazing. I hadn't really appreciated Flickr much until this app. Setting it to ocean, I've already found two great local photographers.

This is great. Instantly taps into strange flickr patterns. I have it on 'knitting' (don't ask - free association) and lots of toy dogs in knitwear are now abseiling down my desktop.

This will be great for the five or six mac owners out there.

As if Mac users don't have enough productivity issues already...

If only you could stop a troll by closing the tag...

Very nice.

To Windows users: your jealousy is so transparent.
