Detective Work Needed

Okay, here are two tasks for the smart ones in the readership to help me with.

First, I came across a well-designed OS X application that made manipulating Flickr photos and tags and descriptions much easier. It was heavy on the clean typography and was well-designed. Might have actually been a web app. Might have had a name like “Meebox” or something like that. Any ideas?

Second, we have purchased a type of fruit here in Portugal that is new to us. About the size of an apricot with an apple-like exterior and a consistency and taste somewhere between peach and pear. Two largish pits at the core. Orange or “ruddy” colour. Our local grocer can’t tell us what the name in English is.

We need a photo of the fruit.

Could you write the name in portuguese? I could either look it up or ask my portuguese collegues for help!

Justin wins the prize for the Flickr app — it is, indeed, Mugshot.

Alas I don’t know the name of the fruit in Portuguese either!

I think the fruit is called nectarine.
English version of the word seems to be same as Romanian.

Search for nectarine on Google images.

In case it helps.. In Spanish it’s called “nispero”

In Portuguese loquat is nespera. In case you haven’t figured that out. Ask the vendor if it’s a nespera.

It is loquat (Eriobotrya japonica) :)
