He thinks it was intense for him and his passengers. Imagine how that poor little seal felt.
We’ve all seen these kinds of images in black and white but the color photos are just as interesting. What’s even more interesting to me is the comparisons to small towns I’ve ridden through in the US South. You still see these kinds of buildings and signage.
Hard to describe this giant, ungainly looking aircraft’s end of flight as a crash. More like a bouncy castle coming to earth too rapidly.
While other companies do their innovation in public, Apple has always been very good at making things behind the scenes and only releasing them when they are ready for the general public to use.
Why does this feel like the beginning of a sci-fi horror movie?
When I lived in the States, I was appalled at the ridiculously huge number of robocalls I got on a regular basis. It’s getting just as bad here in Canada. I hope these companies can band together to find an effective solution to this problem.
I’m looking forward to seeing this movie about these amazing women. The trailer looks good.
I’m one of those beer snobs. I’ve never had a “Lite” beer that was worth the price.
This has been in the tea leaves for a while. Simmons has a few more details about the shutdown of the app here.
While Tim Cook has said the company is looking to make major acquisitions, on the face of it, buying Lyft doesn’t seem to make sense, given their investment in Didi Chuxing. More than likely, any talent or technology they would get from a Lyft purchase is already available to them through Didi.
When I watched the race live, I was yelling at my TV, “He pushed him out of the way!” When I heard later Dunfee had been awarded the bronze, I cheered. Now that Dunfee has had his belatedly given Bronze taken away, I’m amazed. I honestly don’t think I would have reacted as magnanimously or with as much class as Dunfee has over this.
The Hall is also inducting documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, 20th century photographer Ernst Haas, Photoshop co-creators John and Thomas Knoll, photographer Annie Leibovitz, digital printing pioneer Graham Nash, and photographer Sebastião Salgado.
This is going to be a bittersweet concert. From all indications, Downie, the Tragically Hip’s lead singer and soul of the band, is putting on amazing performances on his last tour.
Many of us are understandably squeamish about cadavers but the story of how much good we can do after our death is a good one to know. One of my favorite books is “Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers” (affiliate link) by Mary Roach.
For me, this has been the best story of the 2016 Olympics.
This looks to be a nice beginner camera as long as you don’t need/want 4K recording or wifi connectivity (which is still a sore spot for me).
We Canadians are always surprised to hear that Americans don’t get time off to vote. In Canada, your employer must give you four hours off to go to the polls.
The opening photo of this long article is fantastic. I saw David many years ago in Florence and was absolutely captivated by the statue.
This is the last chapter for the iconic Manhattan store. I taught photography classes there and really enjoyed perusing their collection. I particularly enjoyed their collection of vintage camera equipment. There might be some cool stuff available for auction participants.
Race walking is definitely one of the oddest looking Olympic sports (right up there with Synchronized Swimming) but it’s also incredibly technical and difficult.
Well, I’m never going to Yellowstone with someone who doesn’t like me.
This seems like a remarkably ambitious timetable for such a vehicle. Would you buy or ride in one of these in five years, assuming Ford can pull it off (which I don’t think they’ll be able to)?
Through Amazon, Adobe is offering $25 off the usual price of $120 when you pre-pay for a year. It’s applicable to both new and existing subscribers. Full disclosure: the link is attached to my Amazon Affiliate Code.
It’s hard to overstate Apple’s desire and need to be successful in China. It has become one of, if not the most important market in the world for them.
If you’ve never seen “Airplane” (what is wrong with you!?), these may seem like stupid, silly jokes. If you have seen “Airplane”, you’ll likely laugh out loud at these stupid, silly jokes. But you also might be surprised at what the number one joke was.
To be more accurate, Buffett’s company, Berkshire Hathaway, made the purchase. It makes a difference because, while Buffet has been personally critical of technology stocks, Berkshire Hathaway has recently hired a couple of tech fund managers who are much more bullish on Apple. That’s likely what happened here.
Fast Company has another in their very good series of interviews with key people at Apple.
If you’ve never had the opportunity to get far away from city lights to see the “true” night sky, you owe it to yourself to do it. Awe inspiring.
This article was a lot more interesting than it had any right to be. I’ve never roasted a whole chicken, preferring to just cook the individual pieces I need (usually breasts or thighs, depending on the recipe) but, when I need a lot of chicken, I always grab a rotisserie bird from the supermarket if only for convenience and speed’s sake.
This is one of those silly little things that make me smile whenever I read about it.
