  • Review: Moment's new bags are great for photographers & non-photographers alike

    Tried the Moment fanny pack but sent back. The pocket that holds lenses overhangs the main pocket making it difficult to actually get a camera in and out. Their product photos show a 1980's SLR but you'd have a hard time actually getting one of those out of the main pocket. Even a small M 4/3 or mirror less woudn't really work although there is enough space to fit one and carry comfortably. It's a shame because it's a nice bag, just not great for cameras if you actually want to take them out and shoot.

  • Apple's new 16-inch MacBook Pro coming in October for over $3000, claims report

    Apple has an ideology of minimalism going back to Steve jobs. It's why they didn't make 2 button mice and they took away floppy drives etc.

    It has always been born of a certain arrogance, that they knew better than their users what the user should want regardless of how accurately this matched reality.

    In many cases they have just been wrong and their designs have been counter productive to their aesthetics. The lack of ports simply makes Pro users who need these things buy hubs which create a rats nest of cables, very much contrary to their espoused design minimalism. It just pushes the ugliness off the main computer to somewhere else. It's a NIMBY attitude toward design. Dongles to me are a design fail.
