The days of the pocket video camera are over. Every one is using their phones. Cisco paid $500,000,000 for flip last year or so. it is dead. They are just flushing it. Flip sold at just the right time. I have a Flip. It still works. There are still some choices out there. My phone records shit video and even more shit audio. The term iPhoneogrophy has been used. It is not so much the camera as it is the photographer. It is part the camera. I would call it phonography.
You can get first run movies on some cable companies. You pay $30 for a movie that just came out. Theaters are pissed. Some say theaters will not run as many screens or retaliate in some way on movies that are available in this format. If your are single, $30 is way too high. If you are a couple with five kids, it makes much more sense. The cost of soda and popcorn alone will save you a fortune at home.
One of the podcasts I listen to is about science fiction. A presenter who is living in Japan said something like this paraphrase. As a resident in a post apocalyptic radioactive wasteland, I have to admit it is very much like living in a scifi novel. Only more boning.
Microsoft really needs to implement true soft links. Probably hard links as well. They have *.lnk files, but programs have to be specifically programmed to use them properly. If they were native to the OS, lnk files would simply work as a way to temporarily rename a folder to compress it or as a way to repoint the data files to a crappy hard wired program. When will Windows be ready for the desktop?
Has anyone else heard about this royal wedding in some European country? I only just heard something on the news. You would think this kind of thing would be hyped relentlessly. You know, to the point it drives you nuts and you push it out of your head.
The next Olympics may drop male female based competitions and at least some of the time, use hormone levels to determine what class athletes will compete in. What's next?
Have you heard of a Faraday cage? Build your own.
