It makes sense that the lens is an f/2 given example photos. The demos show that you can change the point of focus, but I wonder if you have the option of bringing the entire shot into focus. All the information is there. If that is the case, then apature setting is not really needed (assuming your shutter is fast enough to compensate for extreme lighting situations). Agreed- waiting for the second iteration makes sense.

So this is pretty exciting. It's a Ruby layer on top of Obj-C that provides direct access to Cocoa frameworks. Apple is already using this to build in-house apps. If/when they extend the bridge to include CocoaTouch, you're going to see a LOT more devs in the iOS app store.

YES! GOD YES! A THOUSAND TIMES YES!!

"I've had one of my big ideas.

What do you think of this?

A live 3 hour podcast during The Golden Globes. Me and a few chums (like Louis CK, Chris Rock, Karl Pilkington, John Stewart, Larry David popping in and out) doing our own alternative commentary.

People at home can have the telly on with the sound down listening to us online say things that no broadcaster could get away with.

No one could do a fucking thing.

The biggest live webcast ever? Who knows? Who cares? What's fun is the shit we might come out with. No money. No sponsor. No guide lines. Fuck me I can't wait.

Maybe I'll do a non-broadcast practice with The Emmys to see if it works. I'll let you know. "

SECURE ALL THE THI.. oh fuck it. This is such a tired meme. sigh. Get off my lawn.

edit: and by 'this' i mean the 'VERB ALL THE NOUNS' meme, not the table thing. One has to actually delve into ASCII codes to make that magic. Verbing a noun is something my cat does in his litterbox daily.

"The arrogance of Web evangelists is staggering. They take for granted that the Web will always be popular regardless of whether it is technologically competitive with other platforms. They place ideology above relevance. Haven't they noticed that the world of software is ablaze with new ideas and a growing number of those ideas are flat out impossible to build on the Web? I can easily see a world in which Web usage falls to insignificant levels compared to Android, iOS, and Windows, and becomes a footnote in history. That thing we used to use in the early days of the Internet."

I think he's on to something.

Ha. Totally. When/if we have a kid, I'm planning to just lock up the records & cds in storage for 18 years to avoid all that. And so the kid doesn't break any of them when they decide that they hate me and want revenge.

Just went outside and put the waterproof cover on my car, thus ensuring no rain whatsoever will fall tonight. Sorry, Austin.

Net: zero. We need one more car washing to tip the scale.

Edit: OK, I felt bad so I rolled the windows down on the other car.

That's Bastrop, TX (about 40 miles southeast of Austin) engulfed in flames in the mirror. Priority number one? Save the horses.
