Great answer, Solip! Getting back to the magnetometer thing. Can anyone else see the prospect (a la Dark Knight or Matrix) of now being able to photo-map (and holographically reconstitute) interiors and exteriors of buildings, cities, countries, planets...? (OK that's enough overactive SF imagination) We live in exciting times. Enz
Thanks for the info, Mel, but now you've made me go and look it up (admired their design but never owned a Leica, more's the shame). ... In fact, Leitz is no more, it is now Leica (not that I knew this before posting); but with the naming of lenses it's more complicated than that: > The Leica went through several iterations, and in 1923 Barnack convinced his boss, Ernst Leitz II, to make a prototype series of 31. The camera was an immediate success when introduced at the...
Hi Mel,Either you or I am having a blonde moment here... as a I believe that should be Leica, not Leitz. CheersPS the best lens I've used is the Minolta on my Sony DSLR. Razors ain't in it!PPS mystery solved: Leitz is the name of the enlarger and projector lenses that Leica makes (see WikiP).
I saw an article a year or so back comparing photos taken by a high-end Carl-Zeiss lensed Nokia with the iPhone. The authors were clearly *trying* to show how rubbish the iPhone camera was but, in spite of their best efforts, some of the iPhone pictures actually looked better than the Nokia's in some aspects. I now have a Nokia 7210 with a 2 mp camera that produces two million pixels per snap of washed out blue haze (the Nokia was a gift.. no iPhones in Fiji The now...
This is a fan-zine. It's called "AppleInsider" [the hint's in the first word]. People here are Apple fans: a person who has a strong interest in or admiration for a particular etc. If you're not a fan, what's the point of reading articles such as this? Get over yourself! -Enz
Indeed, why say Far East when all you mean is China? Is it elegant variation? Antique humor? Far East includes Japan and Korea, which weren't involved in this story.
But what about the reverse progress? And what sort mishigas is " in light of upcoming product catalyst"? Me thinks Kasper needs a better ghost writer.
asleep? Hey, even if you did find out, it would only spoil the fun and the surprise. I can wait...
OK that explains why we're on the same wavelength. In the 80s I was an industrial chemist who moonlighted as a pro nature photographer (made a lot of pocket-money selling framed Cibachrome prints to companies in the Sydney CBD, to put in their foyers.). I gave up photography when I realized I had to do weddings to make my fortune from it (my workmate and partner in photo-crime did just that and is now much richer than me :-( . Can't complain: had a great time later doing a...
Pointed this out elsewhere but there could trouble brewing over the use of WiFi -- it was invented by CSIRO in Oz and they want their money http://www.itwire.com/content/view/24224/1023/ >>CSIRO Takes HP to Cleaners Over Wi-Fi Patent - Next! by Stan Beer Friday, 03 April 2009 The largest IT company in the world, Hewlett-Packard, has been humbled by Australia’s national science agency CSIRO and agreed to settle for an undisclosed sum over a long running Wi-Fi patent...
