Not bad!
 
LOVED the Olloclip on my Photo Walk
I spent a good time during my +Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk hosting a virtual photo walk as well as responding to the thousonds out there that were taking part.  At one point, I was just like "That's it.. im just using my phone."  

My buddy +Kari Sheppard had the #olloclip ( http://www.olloclip.com/ )  with her.  I spent the entire walk borrowing from her, as I absolutely loved what I was doing with having a macro, wide, and fisheye on my phone.  I enjoyed it waaaay more than i thought I would.. and am putting it in my arsenal. 

And so will you.  I'm giving away one of these to you,  Share and leave a comment and I'll pick 1 person tomorrow morning.  Tell your friends.

Let's protect them!
 
Armed Bodyguards Flank One of the World's 7 Last Remaining Northern White Rhinos, Guarded Around The Clock

The White Rhino is on the brink of extinction, and the odds of survival for the species are very slim. There are only 2 females alive on the entire planet. 

Retired NBA star Yao Ming went there last month to film a documentary and to blog about the experience and to raise awareness of the issue. This is what will happen to to our largest remaining African mammals if we do not raise awareness of the problem. Rhino horns and Elephant ivory are in extreme demand from growing Chinese markets.

From Ol Pejeta's webpage: "China is the world’s largest consumer of illegal wildlife parts and products and the most prominent destination for rhino horn and ivory. Already unsustainable, the potential market is rapidly growing. Current projections suggest that there will be around 250 million new middle class consumers over the next 10-15 years. A combination of old customs and traditions with new money, conspicuous consumption and powerful new aspirations are driving expansion in the use of wildlife parts and products in China. But the excuse of “tradition” will be exposed showing it’s actually a question of economics and lack of knowledge." 

The other species of rhino and the elephant can easily follow. Top ocean predators like some types of sharks are also in danger, with the demand for shark fin soup. Boycott shark fin soup if you ever see it on a menu; if you ever see ivory for sale, do not buy it; speak up about the source of the problem.

Many people are misinformed about ivory and rhino horn. They believe it can grow back. In truth, it cannot, and its removal kills the animal. The problem with having "old ivory" is that many times poachers and resellers of ivory market the new ivory as "old." This is why African countries concerned about conservation have chosen to burn their stocks of ivory rather than sell them. We must protect our diversity or it will be completely gone in a few decades.

Good job Samsung! This is funny
 
Samsung Pays Apple $1 Billion Sending 30 Trucks Full of 5 Cents Coins

This morning more than 30 trucks filled with 5-cent coins arrived at Apple’s headquarters in California. Initially,  the security company that protects the facility said the trucks were in the wrong place, but minutes later, Tim Cook (Apple CEO) received a call from Samsung CEO explaining that  they will pay $1 billion dollars for the fine recently ruled against the South Korean company in this way.

the funny part is that the signed document does not specify a single payment method, so Samsung is entitled to send the creators of the iPhone their billion dollars in the way they deem best. 

This dirty but genius geek troll play is a new headache to Apple executives as they will need to put in long hours counting all that money, to check if it is all there and to try to deposit it crossing fingers to hope a bank will accept all the coins.

Lee Kun-hee, Chairman of Samsung Electronics, told the media that his company is not going to be intimidated by a group of “geeks with style” and that if they want to play dirty, they also know how to do it.

You can use your coins to buy refreshments at the little machine for life or melt the coins to make computers, that’s not my problem, I already paid them and fulfilled the law.

A total of 20 billion coins, delivery hope to finish this week.

Let’s see how Apple will respond to this.
