So this looked like an awesome reason to upgrade.  But +Adobe Photoshop Lightroom only makes it available to CC licenses, not to the perpetual license (or whatever they're called the standard one-time-fee license).

This is annoying.
 
ACR Haze Filter

The new 2015 releases of #Adobe products is out. One of the cool new features in Camera Raw is the haze filter. It does a good job cutting through hazy skies: good for surf spray also for you surfing photogs. Some people think it's just a way of combining contrast, clarity, and vibrance, but you can't get the same results with the old controls. It does shift the highlights and shadows yellow/blue at times. One way around that is to create one image and use it just as a luminosity layer, then use another layer as the color layer. Using L*A*B* color works well doing this. Here are some samples of the haze filter and it combined with the L*A*B* technique I just mentioned.

Smart Refrigerator exposes your Google account login: Internet of Things needs better security

Researchers demonstrated they could access a Google account login when on the same WiFi network as an internet-enabled refrigerator. The fridge displays the owner's Google Calendar.

They incorrectly implement SSL: when presented with an incorrect certificate, they fail to validate it. This lets someone on your network -- say, someone who's broken your wifi password -- to get your Google login. With more work, the researchers believe they could overwrite the fridge's firmware and the mobile app that lets you control it.

I think the bottom line is that if you do buy a Smart allowance, think twice before letting it sign in to any important account, at least until they can demonstrate better security.

More details:

Drawing is additive, creating from nothing. Photography is subtractive, isolating your subject from the rest of the world.
 
"It’s as important to exclude what we do not want as it is to include what we want."

Lost in the Bay Area
Introduction
Recovering from returning to the US after a year in Paris..   Due to a wonderful set of opportunities, I'm was able to live in Paris for a year with my wife and daughter.  It was a great adventure.

I like photography, cars, motorcycles, computers, acoustics/audio, and history.  I also find socioeconomic classes fascinating (and an interesting dichotomy from social classes).

Professionally, I connect lots of little things to big things (Internet of Things).

A note to commercial pages:  If you circle me, without me first establishing some sort of relationship (or communication) with you, I'm very likely to block you, and report you for unwanted commercial spam.
