  2. Hey Bill,

    Just wanted to send you a note to say thanks for writing about Cooliris and Previews!

    The reason I’m touching base is to let you in on the new PicLens 1.6, the next generation 3D technology for browsing, viewing (and soon sharing and storing) photos and images on the web.

    Here are a couple of videos about PicLens 1.6 to help you see what all the excitement is about. (our video demo) (video by a professional photographer and apparently a PicLens fan) (video with Randy Komisar of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers)

    Honestly, you’ll need to try Piclens 1.6 to really feel the euphoria. Since we launched PicLens 1.6, a free browser addon for Firefox (Mac and Windows), a week or so ago, we have received hundreds and hundreds of emails from euphoric users hailing the new PicLens “Wall”, a magical 3D interface where you can drag, zoom, and go full-screen on 1000s of images from popular websites. The 3D Wall is coming soon to our IE and Safari versions also.

    Squinting and clicking through mundane thumbnails is so 1990s. We believe PicLens does for the browser what iPhone does for the mobile phone: it revolutionizes the user experience.

    We hope you and your readers will enjoy and feel the same.

    Best regards,
    Jessica & The Cooliris Team
