Hoopla, a service similar to (though not nearly as comprehensive as) Netflix, which officially launched Monday in Toronto, provides media streaming subscriptions for 40 North American public libraries. As we reported in January, the service eliminates late fees and hold lists associated with eBooks. There are a few recent movies, but the selection is geared towards documentaries and educational TV programs.

This Toronto startup has created a photo-sharing app for weddings that allows guests to share pictures they take on their smartphones or digital cameras into one online album. Once you've logged your wedding on sharethebliiss.com and invited guests to join, every smartphone or digital camera photo of the big day can be uploaded to a your Bliiss album, viewable on a mobile or web app. Guests can see each other's photos, comment on them, like them, or share them. Pictures appear in the album as they're uploaded, allowing absentees to catch a glimpse of the party they're missing as it happens. Post-wedding, printing photos is easy since the entire online album can be downloaded.
