Francis Sawyer: "a switch to a more conventional ‘black on white’ design"

That's backward. Light text on a dark background is more legible and comfortable to read, which is why it was the default on computers for many years. This black-on-white stupidity is a vestige of a failed late-'80s/early-'90s attempt to make an analogy between the screen and a piece of paper. It fails because paper doesn't EMIT light.

Why would you want to read black text off the surface of a light bulb all day?

Black text on a white background is called INVERSE for a reason. And it's not something to use everywhere, every day.

No. Inverse is a black page.

PhotoKhan: I can see what the concerns might be, yes...

It is a pity though because this must be one of the most important tools ever developed for traveling.

I can't express enough how this Google tool helped us on the other side of the globe, in Japan, a country where English is not very common and the cultural idiosyncrasies take a bit to get used to (...things like the door numbering in a block, for instance...).

I will be forever in awe over how we went to a Okonomiyaki place in Tokyo with very good reviews, buried deep in the streets mesh of Harajuku area and were able to do so directly, as if we had lived there forever, courtesy of just a previous "sortie" made with Street View.

If these security concerns spread we will be loosing a great tool and the fanatics, once more, step up another notch curtailing our freedom.

This "service" by Google is all about selling advertising to businesses to finds.

On article Setting new standards: Nikon D5 Review (417 comments in total)
In reply to:

johnschafer: I'm sorry, but I'm at the point where I'm done with DPR's very obvious Nikon bias. I really don't want to start a negative rant here. But come on, honestly, I must protest. DPR admits in a separate article of the D5's lowest base ISO dynamic range of any current FF Nikon DSLR. Further, look at FStoppers review of the D5. It is very clear to see the D5 hits its useful limit at ISO25600. Here at DPR if this was a Canon-equivalent pro DSLR, it would be demoted to Silver award. Further, DPR hasn't reviewed a Canon 1D-series in 6 years. Nikon D5 is a Silver award, nothing more.

Spot on.

RedFox88: 23mp on a tiny phone sensor? LOL!

...that's just downsizing the image so you can't see how noisy the image. Pixel binding is just a marketing term to make it sound better, like progressive scan or piezo printing.

Michael Ma: All ~20 Sandisk microSD and CF cards have always performed to perfection and still work today. All ~8 western digital harddisks I've ever purchased, all have failed within a year of purchase or just out of warranty. Am I the luckiest and the unluckiest guy in the universe?

You are just unlucky. In 20 years of hard drives had only one start to go bad and it was 6 years old.

In reply to:

Mordi: I don't understand the praise for this camera if the photo of the young woman with a pole on her shoulder is an example of what it can do at ISO 100. Looking at it on my ASUS HDMI monitor, it doesn't come close to a MFT or any of the first-generation NEX models.

And surely, not close to the many 16x24 prints on my wall from my D300 and D7000.

Who prints anymore? Phones and tablets are better than prints.

In reply to:

tecnoworld: HAHA, 91%. NX1 came 2 years ago, with faster burst, 40% more MP, BSI sensor, much better video and scored 87%.

Oh, yes, it was just a Samsung.

Think about it..based on dpr's rating systems new cams HAVE to get higher point ratings to show they are better than the previous cam!

In reply to:

bgbs: D500 should outsell D5, 500 to 5.

Cameras sell by price. Lower prices models sell a lot more than expensive ones. They will sell more d3300s than d500s.

Mark Banas: Meh. I don't see this VR thing getting traction any time soon...

Agree. VR is a bigger joke than samsung's "curved" TVs.

In reply to:

tokyojerry: The dawn of the VR era. Looking forward to this exciting era! will have more traction then 3D TVs tried to pull off a few years back.

I have a 3D TV and it's great. The problem with VR is you can't be in a "VR" world without wanting to move. It'll just be like Google Street View: have to click to move forward and just spinning in a circle.
