tech@SaigonNezumi Update for 4/4/2012

Got a long update to tech@SaigonNezumi today including yesterday’s launch of Instagram for Android users. 🙂

1. Instagram released for Android users

What many of us Android users have been waiting for.  Instagram has finally released their popular app for Android phones. Currently more then 2000 users are downloading Instagram for Android per minute. I just downloaded my app today.

2. Instagram Plugins for WordPress

There are several good WordPress plugins for users of Instagram.  Below are two good plugins:

  1. Instagram for WordPress allows you to add a sidebar with your latest Instagram photos
  2. Instagrate to WordPress allows you to updates photos from Instagram as a blog post
I will use the later for my blog.

3. Statistics for WordPress

7. How To Create A Hidden Service Tor Site To Set Up An Anonymous Website Or Server

8. Dropcam / Sensr.net

My last addition to the update deals with camera security.  Dropcam allows users to buy their webcam and store images on their cloud server.  It is similar to Sensr.net. The only difference is that Sensr does not lock users into one webbam which makes it a better service in my opinion. Just make sure it has ftp capability and you can use Sensr.  If that is too hard for you, then stick with Dropcam.

Protekus Security Solutions, my security company here in Vietnam, plans to offer Sensr packages with small businesses utilizing the available webcams in the local market, if possible.
