Photobook and calendaring service Mixbook has launched a new photo book product designed for the iPhone. The product, called Mosaic, takes photos from the iPhone's camera roll and turns them into a 7" square physical photo book, designed to make gifting unique photo books quick and easy.
The idea is similar, in a way, to Apple's Cards app; users take photos on the iPhone, combine them into a unique product, and then it's printed and shipped within a few days. The team behind the product believes that users will order their photo books for smaller events, instead of the more traditional weddings and births that people typically order photo books to commemorate:
People don’t want to spend 10 hours building a book about a day at the park with friends, it just doesn’t make sense. But if it only took 60 seconds, then something really great happens. It becomes a no brainer. It becomes something you do time and time again.
Mosaic is more than just an app. It is the complete experience. It’s the app, it’s the book itself, it’s the packaging, it’s everything. We are leaving no stone unturned.
Mosaic will be available from HeyMosaic.com soon.

Gee guess what. Don't download the app and don't buy a friggen book. The world really doesn't revolve around you, no matter what your momma tells you.

Yes, actually. It is. When you turn on a news channel on TV, you expect to get honest news - not a commercial under the guise of being news. MacRumors has ads for commercials. That's where advertisements belong - not disguised as a news article.
Just because others are guilty of the same thing, it doesn't make it ok.
Now we'll have the editor pop in to say that they weren't paid, just posted it because they thought it was nifty, etc. I don't buy that for a second.
Why does his statement of it being an uncreative gift warrant that response? He's obviously against the idea of giving something that's meant to look nice, but take no forethought whatsoever. How does that get you to assume he is just mad that he didn't do it first?
Some people actually enjoy giving gifts that they put time and thought into, rather than something that they can throw a few bucks at and have done in 60 seconds.
Seriously. That's some serial killer ****, right there.
