You know that flash light shaped gimmicky camera which could refocus after shooting an image, that came out a few years back? Well, now there's a new version. It looks like a pro, and comes with the same features. This looks pretty awesome, but let's wait for the reviews to come in before throwing our money at them.

It would appear 2014 will be the first year I get to attend Google I/O. I didn't luck out in the draw, but the easter egg hunt was good to me.

So...

If you're going to Google I/O, look me up!

Also a big shoutout to +Lauren Darcey for making me aware of the easter egg hunt!

This is pretty interesting and all... What gets me about this video though is that a lot of feminists I have heard lately would positively castrate this person for violating the women - if she were a guy... Being a woman, hitting on strangers on the street is just fine!

Wow! LOL! Actually, I'm not all that surprised at the reactions. Women, in general, seem to have their defenses up when it comes to males, but not when it comes to females. The reaction seems to be one of "I'm flattered, even though I'm not interested in actually doing anything with you, I'm intrigued that you're showing an interest in me." So they're polite and accommodating. If it were a man, they would be wondering if he's a rapist or just crazy for being so bold, given the fact that this is happening outside of the normal "pick-up" locales.

A male reaction to being hit on by another guy would be quite different. We wouldn't see it as flattering, but as a threat to our manhood. If the guy was as persistent or bold as the woman in this clip, our reaction might be to fight.

Spectacled Bear at Schöbrunn Zoo, Vienna. And not a happy one at that.

What can I say... I think Google+ focuses way too much on pictures. Often when I skip through my stream I inadvertently skip text only updates because... Well, they're not very pretty, so obviously they're junk, right? Wrong!

So to fix this obsession with images on Google+ I have made... An image. Grabbing the user's attention while directing him to your text, which has nothing to do with the image. Except for now, of course...

Oh, also, this is a red squirrel from Schönbrunn Zoo in Vienna.
6D, 100mm macro, 1/500 shutter, iso 3200.

They are very friendly. I wish I could say the same about the kids, who eagerly and with squishy plans run towards any squirrel.

I think your picture is a fine example that pictures are not always worth a thousand words, seeing as it at best covers about 10-15 :) - And while I think it's valid I don't see how you can even space pure text posts with graphic/text posts with out removing the value of said picture, if a thumbnail is too small nobody cares about it :) and who wishes to see a wall of text from the 10 page monolog on their google+ wall, though I do agree that they should show slightly more of a text post.

Went to the Schönbrunn Zoo in Vienna and caught this fella. Even though I found it, along with some of its mates, in the zoo, I'm not sure it's part of the exhibit. They may just have been visiting, enjoying the cute animals.

Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna, as seen from the Schönbrunn garden.

This was a lovely day, although the trip back to the hotel felt a bit like drowning at times.

My friend, who is still struggling with the technical details of photography, went here to upgrade her lens to one more sensitive to light. She told the clerk she needed this to photograph at events. However, they didn't have what she needed, but through a very convincing sales pitch she got the spectacularly bad advice to upgrade to a slightly better lens with a more limited zoom and the exact same f-stop. At great cost. This is one of the more expensive brick and mortar stores in Copenhagen, and if you can't go there when you are unsure of what you need you are better off shopping online or at least somewhere else. A single star added for reversing the deal when we came back 20 minutes later.

Went there for lunch. The very nice waiter recommended the daily special, a New York strip steak sandwich, which I ordered. The sandwich smelled incredibly spoiled and I had to send it back. Ruined my appetite completely. They have a very impressive milkshake menu, including classics such as bacon pancake flavour or captain crunch. I chickened out with a caramel, which was ok, except for the ending which most of all resembled butter. I won't be coming back.

Fairly expensive, but they serve the best cocktails in town, and the service is always top of the line!

An adventure into the world of seafood. Try the seafood special! €27 is expensive for an appetizer, but it's worth every cent. Great atmosphere, competent waiters. If you're willing to spend a little extra, this won't disappoint!
