"Cool Tools: A Catalog of Possibilities"

This seems like a very interesting book, Cool Tools: A Catalog of Possibilities. The book for those who love good tools. (It doesn't only talk about physical tools, also principles, review sites, etc.)

Sadly it is not yet available in ebook format, which I'd prefer for legibility and portability. But looking inside it, one can understand that the transfer will be a lot of work indeed. Even on the currently biggest iPad (10-inch), those pages will require zooming in. And for converting it be read on a Kindle...!

The RX100 In Concert, Yaaaaaaaaaah

Here are some impressive impressions of what some old men can do, and what one small camera can do, the Sony RX100, which praises I've long sung. ... A pocket camera?? For concert photos??!

Doing well by doing good

Happy holidays and spammers

Happy holidays to all ya lovely readers. 


You know how I often find a neo-Dadaist poetry in spam. Here's a new one. It's from one of those blog comments where people just want to put in a link to their flikkin' affiliate site, but put in a paragraph of generic "comment"-like chatter to fool the bots and hopefulle even the editor:

Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal.

Wow. I love when I sometimes manage to "define out the whole thing without having side effect". Yes, and people can take a signal, it's so true!

Photographer Has Blower Confiscated by TSA Because it ‘Could Fly Like a Missile’

Photographer Has Blower Confiscated by TSA Because it ‘Could Fly Like a Missile’, article.

(It's a dust blower, fully made of rubber/plastic.)

In the words of Steve Jobs: "it kind of makes you ashamed to be human".

And it's not even the first time.
