Flickr! kicks ass… again.

I know it is a blogging social faux pas to post a post about another blogs post. whew
But I just had to write about this fantastic app that just popped up in my feed reader from MAKE.

It is an app that will change your desktop wallpaper, on WindozeXP, for any on Flickr.[HERE]
This shows a wonderful usage of the Flickr API.

It is a great example of why opening up the API of your web application can have wonderful, and sometimes unexpected, side benefits.

I have set mine up to update my desktop with all images tagged with “landscape”.
Some of them are just totally amazing.

If you use windozeXP then this might interest you.
