GET TO THE CHOPPER!

A programming language with syntax is based upon classic Arnold Schwarzenegger quotes. Amazing.

Seen a lot of people questioning the recent #AmazonPatent  regarding how to take a good product photo, asking questions such as "Are they going to be checking all pictures taken from now on?" and "All they've managed to do is give away their method for taking good photographs" - but perhaps that's what they wanted to do?

My reasoning - Amazon sells things. Things that look bad on their pictures are less likely to be purchased due to first impressions. If Amazon were to show a 'standard' way of taking a photograph of their product, how many people would have listened? How many people would have cared? But the fact they have patented it, and thus caused outrage, has given it legs and carried the method across the internet meaning more people have seen this method for taking 'good product photos'.

Although a patent should stop other people from using this 'idea', this may have the opposite effect, and could have educated people on how to take a good product photo, therefore increasing the quality of product photo's on websites such as, oh I don't know, Amazon, and therefore potentially driving more sales due to better first impressions.

Or maybe I'm just crazy ;).

Noooo +Nokia, why!? A stock Android phone made my Nokia would've been amazing, but what've you done here?! The interface is Windows phone like, not an Android experience at all, it looks tacky and slow. I'd have killed for a Lumia style phone with stock Android.

Damn shame..

I think its ridiculous how we have the technology to provide good internet speeds over fibre, yet we're still laying copper. With this speed I find it difficult to watch a YouTube video in HD as it constantly stutters. Especially if someone else wants to use the internet. Can't believe this is advertised as 'up to 24Mb'.
