How to use flickr to help you decide what camera to buy !

I've just noticed that Argos have some interesting deals on digital cameras:

  • 7M Canon A470 3.4x for £50
  • 10M Nikon S560 5x for £150
  • 6M Nikon D40 DSLR (inc 18-55 lens) for £250

but how can i decide which one to buy ?

So I thought lets use flickr to help me decide

Only 200 A470 owners uploaded photos YESTERDAY but 3000 D40 owners did !

31/75 flickr members own a A470 ! and its well down the popularity list ! whats wrong with it ?

6000/13000 flickr members own the d40 and its the 4th most popular Nikon ! impressive figures !

Or maybe I should save up for a D60 instead !

Is Google in self destruct mode ?

Why would Google accept / approve / sponsor Tor for the Google Summer of Code 2008 ?

Tor is an organisation that "helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy" ie by attempting to subvert all Web Analytics tools including Google Analytics and apparently Tor also breaks Google Search itself ! Surely Googles primary product ?
