+Terry Henderson Given the camera's feature set, its price isn't outrageous. Plus, this is the "be the first on your block to own the new camera," price. Olympus drops the price as newer competitors are released. The OM-D E-M5 Mark Ii came out at this same price last year, and now it's down to $999, and was on sale for even less at Christmas. This is a camera for a professional or advanced amateur, not a starter camera, and it is priced as such.

Sad to see Moffat leave, but there is always something changing with The Doctor. 
Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat is leaving the TARDIS. Here's who will replace him.

If you use Microsoft One drive at all, follow this series of links to keep 15GB of storage once Microsoft changes their storage policy.
 
Do you use Microsoft OneDrive? 

Were you upset when they announced that you were going to lose most of your free space?

Well... seems that Microsoft heard the outcry, and they've decided to let you keep your free 15GB. All you have to do is log in at the link below and your account won't lost the space after the change.

For those who think this could be a scam, here's the blog post from MS.

https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/10524099-give-us-back-our-storage
Recently, a blog post was announced detailing that you would be reducing our free and paid storage. Only 1TB for Office 365 customers, and only 5 GB for free customers. I have been a long-time OneDrive fan, but after this upgrade I can no longer recommend it as my promised storage has been taken away. Some of us actually store a normal amount of stuff in OneDrive. Why makes us pay for those who went over the top?

Don’t even think about trying to repair your Apple Pencil. I still think I'm going to get one eventually.
The Apple Pencil stylus accessory was one of the most-praised parts of the newly-launched iPad Pro -- which, naturally, means that our friends at iFixit we

I can't tell you how much I hope this happens. We could really use more competition here.
 
We’re exploring bringing Fiber to Oklahoma City. This means working with city leaders to understand local requirements and challenges – from roads and infrastructure to permits and utility paths. 

It will take time to make sure we can build this network. And we’d love to keep you updated on our progress. Check your address to be among the first to know when we have more to share: g.co/fiber/oklahomacity

This sounds amazing, and I can't wait to see how the testing goes, but since I'm a Micro 4/3 shooter, the 67mm minimum filter size means that this filter will only fit the largest of M 4/3 lenses. Maybe they'll be made in smaller sizes eventually. 
Sigma has created an all-new protective filter, the Sigma Water Repellent (WR) Ceramic Protector, using Clear Glass Ceramic with water and oil repellent coating. This is the first filter to use such a material in its construction. It promises both lighter weight and higher strength than normal protective filters with minimal effects on transmittance and sharpness.

+Michael Cohn I don't either. Current protective filters don't do enough. However, these are also hydrophobic and oleophobic. I'm still going to wait and see what testers say about it, but if it lives up to its claim to being durable, minimally reflective, repelling both rain and fingerprints, I might start using one again.

Just letting you all know that I survived the ice storm. I had power throughout, but lost internet access for a day from Sunday to today.
