Why not screw a lobster to it and call it an "homard"?

Eclipses are wonderful enough already. No embellishment required.

justinwonnacott: so tired of non existent kickstarter ideas . . . show me the one you have wrapped and ready to go or get off my doorstep.

Good one, Lars. You can then go to the bank and say "Look, I got $10,000 on Kickstarter, it *must* be a good idea."

The sample pics show perfectly why you're better off without.

On 3,200MP LSST camera gets construction approval article (257 comments in total)

And in 15 years we'll be saying "of course, it only had 2015 technology - only 3200 Mp! That's smaller than the average pro SLR nowadays."

Anyone else sick of reading about selfies?

Still, if they make the cameras sell better...

JohnEwing: Lots of refurbs on the horizon...

The ones Nikon is replacing could well resurface as factory refurbs.

Ah jeez, just after they'd fixed the airbags.

On Panasonic releases trio of compact superzooms article (102 comments in total)

I wish they would unify their daft numbering systems. What is the point of calling the same camera a ZS45 in one place and a TZ57 in another?

Had to have a chuckle, seeing "real world" and "fashion" in the same sentence.

"No touch screen" is actually a point in its favour.

On All-in-one: Ona Capri bag review article (168 comments in total)

Daft styling (or total lack of it), daft price, totally impractical. Should sell very well.

In reply to:

mauijohn: I got same size like that one on my new laptop. Camera and etc. bag from Calvin Klien with lots and lots of pokers and compartments for just $35.00 and decent looking than that for men.

Oh, I like "pokers" more.

JohnEwing: I have some nice pearwood out in the workshop, could run up a grip like that for my RX100 in about an hour. Or maybe fumed oak would go better with black...

But you know, I think it looks better without.

Tempting...

"...with that authentic fumed-oak smell of horse-pee".

Great marketing, eh?

And once it was gone I could buy an RX100 III.

These enormous prices don't reflect the value of the article, they reflect how little value the people who buy them place on money.

HowaboutRAW: There's another softcore aspect to pict #1:

The woman's hands aren't behind her neck as if she's stretching, the hands are clearly placed to imply that they could belong to another person. This is very likely done with purposeful ambiguity.

I'd go so far as to say the hands were made a bit bigger via perspective control in PhotoShop.

I make the very same gesture after a bike-ride when I massage my neck.
