While traveling in Japan I found a novel use for a digital camera. Most of the restaurants there have lifelike plastic displays of the food they serve. Since I couldn’t speak Japanese I just took a picture of wanted to eat and showed it to the waiter. He thought it was very funny but I did get what I ordered...

  • Digital camera as communication tool (and memory aid)

    Great idea! I do something similar with the camera on my phone.

    If I end up in a good pub or restaraunt I take a picture of the sign outside. There are so many places to go out to in London it's easy to forget the good places.

    I do the same in bookshops and record shops when I see something that I may want to buy another time.

    I now have an archive of visual reminders that I keep in a special album in iPhoto and on my phone.
