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.
Christine Carlton and Aynsley Wintrip Harris saw that desperation among Canadian shoppers - and then they spied a business opportunity. Last year, the two longtime friends (and former university roommates) pooled their years of experience in communications and high-end retail to launch The September, a for-Canadians, by-Canadians e-commerce site stocked with the highest-of-the-high-end designer shoes.
The free service would work via the Hoopla application, which supports pushing audio and video to Apple TV boxes. Titles are automatically returned without incurring late fees and there are no holds or waiting lists for popular rentals, the company says.
WeSell Socks clearly agrees with me because this Toronto startup is betting all its chips on people who take their sock game seriously. The subscription sock service, which officially launched on New Years' Day, delivers subscribers a pair of good quality, stylish socks to their doorstep for $12 per month. Jump on their current early bird special and they'll wave the shipping within Canada and the US (a flat fee of $5 will apply in the near future). What's more, these socks will warm your feet and your heart. For every pair you buy, WeSell will donate a pair to someone in need.
