Well, that was a disappointment. It was retracted nearly as quickly as it burst onto the scenes. Crud. A reasoned, level-headed analysis of the problems that current copyright law creates rocked Slashdot yesterday. The amazing thing is, this thing came from Washington. Here’s the highlight reel:
Rumor is that Apple is shopping around for a new manufacturer for the SoCs that power its mobile devices. And that Intel is interested in the business. I think it makes a ton of sense.
I bought a Flip Ultra last night. It’s the most featureless video camera I’ve ever used, but I like it. Surprised?
For what it’s designed to do, it works very well.
File this under rumors, even if it comes from the Wall Street Journal: Apple is supposedly considering using Intel processors.
Apple’s probably pulling a Dell.
I’m not a serious photographer and I don’t play one on TV. But I’m tired of looking at dark, fuzzy, tiny photographs that don’t tell anything, so here’s a way someone who knows nothing about photography–such as Yours Truly–can take a decent picture.
In case you haven’t yet, you really need to read about The INDUCE Act. The potential is for any device that could be used to illegally copy copyrighted material to become illegal, and the manufacturers of said devices liable for their use.
This is wrong for so many reasons. Take the example of the crowbar.
Even people who use Windows exclusively have probably heard of The Gimp, which Linux and Unix users often proclaim as the “free alternative to Adobe Photoshop.” While Photoshop is in no danger of being displaced in the industry, Gimp is certainly more than adequate for most use.
Deciding between a color inkjet versus a color laser is tough for me. So I decided to sit down and do the math, and the results were exactly the opposite of what I expected.
Well, I took the plunge. I’ve entered the world of digital photography.
I had someone ask me for some advice in picking out a camcorder yesterday. I know I’ve talked a little bit about that before, but this field is always changing, so it doesn’t hurt to revisit it.
