The mechanism that is an SLR camera–the mirror, the shutter, and the rest–is a bit old and creaky. Removing it in mirrorless cameras madE competition from outsiders easier. I’d argue the same is true for the internal combustion engine. Existing car makers have so much specialized knowledge about how to make the best and most reliable internal combustion engines and, for many years, the acquisition of this specialized knowledge was the barrier to entry for anyone that wanted to make cars. However, that is changing. Electric cars are much simpler. There is an electric motor that is attached to a chassis with some sort of braking and steering mechanism. Carburetors, pistons, engine blocks, smog absorbers, oil pans, and all that other junk that are required to make an internal combustion engine all get thrown out the window with an electric car.

I mostly agree, I think, as for the fossil care, there will be a time and a place for it, for a very long time to come. But I don’t think it is the right thing for most people today. But I think people, like me, who has a lot of money invested in accessories and glass for a type of camera are going to stick with it for a while.

The question for me, is not if I should get rid of my DSLR or not, but rather if there are some mirrorless camera that fit between my DSLR and my iPhone; the answer to that question right now is: the Fujifilm X100-series.

Will my next camera my a DSLR? No, it will be something like the Fujifilm X100t. But I know I will buy another Canon DSLR when my current camera breaks

The reasons are simple:

  • I have most of the optics I want and need, and it is much cheaper for me to buy a few more lenses to have everything, than it is to sell them, and start from scratch.

  • I have a lot of other accessories

  • I know exactly how to get what I want from it

  • The view-finder in a proper SLR is much better.

Thirty-five of the studies, however, showed a significantly negative correlation between intelligence and religiosity, according to researcher Miron Zuckerman.

Interesting.

512 Pixels review of The Magic Keyboard

21.10.2015 02:00

In my few days of using the keyboard full-time, I’ve already learned to back off the pressure with which I type. That’s a good thing, as smashing these keys into the aluminum beneath them is going to be hard on me and the keyboard long term.

I’m not sure if Apple’s current keyboard trend is good, bad or whatever. I have used Apple Keyboards for a very long time, but I might go for logitech the next time.

As of now, there are more minutes produced by the podcasts I listen to each day than there is time to listen to them.

I have met the podcast surplus many times over my life, and how many I listen to go up and down, depending on, well my life. Podcasts is my current favourite entertainment, and it isn’t a problem with a long backlog, as long as the majority of the podcasts isn’t something that goes out of date(news); there is always a situation where you are going to complete it. And the same thing applies to Instapaper queue.

The 1Password ‘leak’ is a storm in a teacup.

21.10.2015 02:00

This is a storm in a teacup. Some of the data is exposed in the old version of their data format. All iCloud users use the new format, which solves it. And the kind of data that are exposed are not sensitive for most users.

This is by the way the reason I trust 1Password, we always get a honest and straight to the point response when something is up. Like this one.

Great post about the new Apple Wireless Keyboard. It might not be a step in the right direction.

This is my favourite feature in OS X, and it made me wonder: why didn’t we get this before?
