One of my favorite authors. Very sad to hear this.

13 / 52 - The entire known universe in a melting puddle of water: today it felt like spring.

12 / 52. It feels like this winter is just never ending. Shot through the window of my moving car, on a cold rainy day. Mt. Bromont and the ski slopes in the distance, off highway 241 from Shefford.

I'm so happy we have the CRTC to make sure stuff like this doesn't happen... oh, wait.
 
Without any fanfare, Canada’s big three wireless carriers have hiked the base prices for new plans by $5 in most markets over the weekend. http://cbc.sh/2PuAYpd

Rogers, Telus and Bell Mobility now all charge $80 per month for new smartphone plans with a new contract, $5 more than those same plans cost when they were introduced last year. The prices for other smartphone plans with more data cost upwards of $145.

What do you think of the hike?

Very smart. And probably very cost effective in the long run. An unhappy employee probably costs more than 5000$ (a year) in lack of productivity.

that's similar to companies that offer newly hired employees $2000 to quit right after the training... those who stick around are probably worth keeping

So I deleted my 500px account. I'll probably try to give flickr another go, but I can't take the constant flow of over-processed images on 500px anymore. I don't have a better word for it than nauseating. I know I can dig deeper and find photographers I like and admire, and I have... But I can't seem to escape a flow feed filled with over-saturated colours and heavily de-noised images (and HDR... OH MY GOD, SO MUCH HDR)...  All in all, other than likes and favorites, I found no real sense of community there.

Let's see what flickr has in store. I never really used it to its full potential but I always find interesting community threads there with people voicing things other than "great shot. if you have a few minutes, take a look at my profile"

It is... I should buy a Leica and only shoot extreme HDR images at f22 with a 50mm Summilux... just to confuse the hell out of everybody.

Edit: DAMMIT! The Summilux only goes to f16!

OK, Google! I must be getting old. I have exactly zero interest in wearables. I think I've reached my tech threshold, and from here on I'll just start mumbling stuff under my breath about the youth these days.

I want a watch that is finely crafted, solid, and lasts 3 to 5 years without needing a recharge (and I'll probably opt for the 10 year battery next time I change it.) I wear a field watch, and there is a reason for that. It's titanium built and has a strap that would probably rip my arm out before coming undone (not yet sure this is a good thing!) It feels like a men's watch, and it's part of the reason I wear it. It's jewelry, and no amount of tech, however minimal and well integrated can replace that "feel".

There is a reason an iPhone, however well crafted it may be, does not feel like a leather belt. Or a finely bound book. Or a proper watch.
 
Sharing what’s up our sleeve: Android coming to wearables

Today we’re excited to extend Android to wearables. And we’re starting with the most familiar wearable—watches. We’re already working with several consumer electronics manufacturers, including Asus, HTC, LG, Motorola and Samsung; chip makers Broadcom, Imagination, Intel, Mediatek and Qualcomm; and fashion brands like the Fossil Group to bring you watches powered by Android Wear later this year. If you’re a developer, check out developer.android.com/wear to download a Developer Preview so you can tailor your existing app notifications for watches powered by Android Wear. Look out for more developer resources and APIs coming soon.

More #RealGravity images tonight as #Gravity is up for awards at the #Oscars2014: Astronaut Bruce McCandless II, is seen further away from the confines and safety of his ship than any previous astronaut has ever been on Feb. 12, 1984. This space first was made possible by the Manned Manuevering Unit or MMU, a nitrogen jet propelled backpack. After a series of test maneuvers inside and above Space Shuttle Challenger's payload bay, McCandless went "free-flying" to a distance of 320 feet away from the Orbiter. This stunning orbital panorama view shows McCandless out there amongst the black and blue of Earth and space.
