Then I’d like to have Apple’s computational methods give us a night mode as Huawei and Google does. Both would be more useful than a super wide.
It also makes me wonder why these software and hardware innovations haven’t yet found their way into security cameras. Night vision and grain reduction in consumer grade cameras would be a huge breakthrough for security companies and the public.

Long story short, Huawei didn't build a color model to work with their imager.
I’m now reading in a couple of places that Google has implemented color management in the Android OS. But they haven’t. That will require an entire overhaul of their display model. What they’ve done is a very modest ability to display (sometimes) two specific standards, but not at the same time. This is far from color management. I used to teach that.
I have a lot of photo apps on my iPad. Several are very good. This one seems pretty good too, so far. But none, including this one, are what I really want. Too many of these have tons of what this review seems to think are great filters, but are mostly a waste of time. They’re almost always not actually what you want. If you really want these types of filters you still need to do most of it manually. They seem to be aimed at the amateur Instagram crowd.
when Photoshop arrives, we’ll see if it provides what all these apps are missing.

They’ve been doing in London. At some point, people have to modernize, whether they like it or not. There’s always the excuse that some people can’t afford something or other. But over time, amazingly enough, even they are doing it. I don’t think affordability is a real, long term issue. How many people don’t have cell phones today? How many don’t have smartphones? How many smartphones don’t have NFC?
every new technology has been criticized as being too expensive for some, or too complicated for others. But nevertheless they take over. Costs come down, complexity is simplified. That’s the way of the world nowadays.
i have problems with the Metrocard. Sometimes they don’t get read properly, and you’re standing there swiping away. It says to just swipe at that terminal, but you can’t, so you go to another one. Sometimes you lose the first fare because of that. If you don’t pay attention, the card, which is dated, for most card uses, runs out, and even with money on it, doesn’t work. So you have to get out of the line, when it’s busy, and go to a machine, which may have people on line, and which itself may not be working, or is only accepting cash, or some other nonsense. Then you have to go to the booth, at some point, with your bad, it outdated card, and see if they can convert it to a new card. Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Many stations have no one in the booth.
sometimes, though it’s been rare in recent years, some wise guy puts something into the slot so you can’t swipe.
so anyone who tells you that this is going to be a bigger pain is full of it. I expect glitches in the beginning. This always happens. But after some time, it will settle in.
