Phones Pluck Flickr Photos

Mobile phone users who are image addicted can automatically have Flickr photos sent to their inseparable devices. Netomat's service automatically resizes Flickr images for the small screens and forwards them to your mobile phones or PCs. It can also be used to forward textual data feeds (RSS or Atom) to phones.

The company hasn't said how it will make money (RSS ads?); today users will only have to pay the data charges. Netomat started as an art project that interactively collected images and text based on search terms.

So the tsunami of digital image sharing will go in both directions, to and from phones. When will you have time to talk?
