Brilliant! Screenstagram, a screensaver for Instagram - TNW Apps. The world was waiting with bated breath when Instagram released its API this past February.
Since then, we’ve seen numerous playful web apps giving users 30-seconds of playtime until they forget the we.b ad.dr.ess or CuTE app name. The Barbarian Group, a NYC based media group always at the lead of innovation, has just released an Instagram-driven screen saver called “Screenstagram” for Mac that’s impossible to forget once installed (unless of course, you never take your mitts off your keys). We love photos from our friends and we love APIs…It’s not too often that a visually rich system like Instagram comes along and releases an API. We wanted to do something that took advantage of the eye candy, something beyond a web-based photo browser – something to really showcase our friends’ grainy, bar room photography. A way we could sit with the photos and soak them in longer than usually allowed by the ephemeral, wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am approach taken by the feed in the Instagram iPhone app.

Gary V: Chatroulette Would Have Worked With Facebook Connect Because The Penises Would Have Names. Wine Library founder Gary Vaynerchuk took the stage at Le Web today to talk about the importance of the human element in business.
It’s really easy to not take the extremely quotable GaryVee seriously, because he spits out more platitudes than anyone you’ve ever met. But if you get past tired maxims like “Entrepreneurial success is not about luck…it is about focus and work” and things like “What’s the ROI of your mom” or “All the other bullshit is horseshit,” Vee comes up with some pretty interesting stuff (My “Phone Call Is Dead” post is inspired by a Gary Vee tweet and I’m about to write another one on “Google Is The New Resume” which is also derived from a Vee quote).
How the World Googled in 2010. Shortly after Yahoo released its list of the year's top searches, Google has announced the results of its annual zeitgeist report, revealing the most popular search terms of 2010 by region and worldwide.
The search giant analyzed billions of searches performed in 2010 and compared them with searches from 2009 to surface emerging trends. Chatroulette, the iPad and Justin Bieber were the three fastest-rising search terms in 2010; Twitter and Facebook also made the list, at numbers eight and 10, respectively. Among the items of interest that lost the world's attention in 2010 were swine flu, Stephanie Meyer's novel (and the accompanying movie) Twilight: New Moon, Susan Boyle, Slumdog Millionaire, "MySpace layouts" and Michael Jackson. The iPad was the emergent search winner in the consumer electronics category, followed by the iPhone 4, Nokia 5530, HTC EVO 4G and Nokia N900.
