The blend of instant cameras and modern technologies opens up a lot of creative possibilities. Martin Fasani has created FS2, a simple DIY 3D-printed instant camera. But instead of printing your images – this camera sends them to the cloud straight away.
The cloud has gained popularity in recent years, and is often recommended as a way to store and backup your photos, but what do you do when the service kicks the bucket?

US Magistrate James Francis, a New York judge, recently made a controversial ruling two months ago that you may want to know about. The decision, made in a case against Microsoft, declared that US search warrants apply to digital information even if its stored overseas.
The ruling was given after Microsoft was ordered to hand over the email account of a user under investigation for drug trafficking – the company’s information was stored overseas in Dublin, Ireland. Microsoft then challenged the authority of the government to seize it from outside United States borders. The US Government responded, stating that (according to the Stored Communications Act) online storage isn’t protected by the fourth amendment.
