A few times in your life, you experience something that you know will forever change your perspective.
Yesterday I took delivery of a Tesla S Sedan. I had that feeling - the car industry will never be the same again.
I've owned many 500 to 600 horsepower cars. So I wasn't prepared to be impressed with the Tesla's performance. Yet I was. This car is scary fast and the torque feels completely linear even at high speeds.
The internal 17 inch display changes how you will interact with your car. It's huge and incredibly intuitive. I kept thinking, why didn't someone else do this first?
Charging it up at home was just like plugging in my phone or laptop. It just seemed obvious.
I also had the privilege of touring the factory - it was amazing to see the robots building these cars. I never believed we'd see manufacturing in the United States, let alone in the heart of Silicon Valley.
More later, but I had to just congratulate the people of for attempting to change the world, and I believe, actually doing it.
I took this photograph tonight by just looking up. Strange sight indeed.
With billions of images being uploaded and shared on a daily basis, we want to make it fast and easy for people to perfect their photos. What once required a desktop computer, costly software and hours of editing work, can now be accomplished quickly in a powerful app --
The new #Snapseed app gives you the precision and control of professional photo editing software on your phone or tablet. We’ve updated the app in many ways while staying true to our mission of helping everyone easily create extraordinary images. Here are the highlights:
• New tools including Lens Blur, Tonal Contrast, intelligent perspective Transform, and Spot Healing
• Selectively apply filters and effects to parts of the image using the Brush tool
• Non-destructive editing via Stacks allows you to re-edit or undo any change. You can also copy edits from one image to another
Snapseed works with your phone camera shots as well as images from DSLRs, compact cameras, and more.

The workflow was so enjoyable, especially when compared with the workflow involved with my Nikon or Canon or Sony cameras....
I've included the original and the edited photo for you to see.
