Weekly Ecommerce News Wrap-up

By | July 11, 2008 8:02 am

Well, it seems to be that time of the week again – TGIF!

iPhone 3G hits the marketplace
At long last (has it really been all that long?), Apple releases that latest and greatest iPhone to the retail market today. The much-hyped updated version of the cell phone that does it all now does even more, with features including GPS and the accessibility of hundreds of other applications through Apple’s new App store.

The App Store gives iPhone users access to a tremendous variety of software in any of eighteen categories, over a hundred of which are free. I have become addicted to the Texas Hold ‘Em app, personally.

Flickr, Getty looking for the next great photographer
Online photo storage and sharing website Flickr (which is owned by Yahoo, for the record) has penned a deal with Getty Images that will make it possible for amateur photographers to have their work receive mass exposure they might never realize otherwise. Did I mention that Getty will be paying? [full story]

Gene Hoffman Jr. has written a fantastic piece over at E-Commerce Times called “Online Businesses: Recession-Proof or Just Lucky?” that discusses some of the reasons as to just how and why ecommerce businesses are not only surviving but thriving despite a struggling ecomony.

See you next week, folks!
