Happy New Year from Your Friends at Android Community!

Joy un 2 the new year! We're here with our fabulous technology watching a double live stream of the New York Times Square ball drop event. Both of the streams we're watching are courtesy of the Toshiba end of the camera - it was the first live stream we found when searching for the event trying to see it live online, and it just happened to be a featured app in the Android Marketplace. The app had a bunch of features that allowed us to potentially interact with the event and both the stream on the laptop we're using, an ENVY 17 3D (see the full review soon on SlashGear,) and the app allowed us to see the event in a totally live stream.

Cooliris Liveshare App Review

So just a couple hours ago we learned that Cooliris had released a lovely new app by the name of Liveshare for Android and iOS devices. I happened to have a Samsung Continuum here, just waiting for review, so I thought hey, let's take a peek at this cool new app! Thusly, here it is: Cooliris Liveshare, an application made for you to find fabulous events around your area, take photos at them, and share them with the world using the Cooliris 3D Wall through Facebook, email, or other social sites such as your own personal one (using a simple embed code, if you're in to that sort of thing.) Then you can also view (from your phone) other photos from the event, including images of a young man wearing a baseball cap that I'm almost certain wasn't actually at the Black Veil Brides concert at Slim's.
