You can find it in the Android Market here.

Digital photo-realist artist extraordinaire, Bert Monroy, spent the past 4 years cooking up this masterpiece of Times Square that serves as a tribute to the “who’s who” in the world of digital imaging.
The flattened image is 6.52GB and was built with almost 3,000 individual Photoshop and Illustrator files. The image is zoomable on his site if you want to get closer up to personalities like Russel Brown, John Knoll and Scott Kelby (among many others) within the image.
The finished image will be on display at Photoshop World in Orlando, Florida from March 30 to April 1, 2011.

If you’re really lusting after that new Nikon D7000 or Canon 60D, and you’re coming up short on cash to make the move, consider upgrading your current gear toward the purchase of the latest and greatest.
One of Photography Bay’s affiliates, Adorama, asked me to remind those of you who might be interested that they will buy your used photo and video gear for cash or trade.
Here’s how Adorama’s deal works:
“If you are ready to upgrade your system, or you have equipment that you would like to turn into cash, send us the equipment to have it evaluated and we will give you an honest and fair offer. If you accept the offer, we will send you a check right away or you can use it as a credit toward any purchase you would like to make.
If a deal is not made, we will return the merchandise to you, fully insured, at our expense.” –Adorama
