Congratulations, Aeros, but most people do not remove their profiles, just add "retired".

In High Tech if you're not on LinkedIn, you do not exist.

I think it's a great match. LinkedIn has been expanding into informational / educational direction for quite a while. Lynda is a ready-made package for them. Congratulations to founders of Lynda.

straylightrun: What the? What a sellout.

Wow... If you could drop a couple of hundred million dollars in your pocket, I am so sure you wouldn't do it. Right.

APenza: He can always be a cameraman for Bill O'Reilly.

@APenza -- No, you don't get it. This is not Off Topic, where you usually hang out. Keep the political drivel there.

@APenza -- And there is always a dickhead with a political agenda who immediately has to jump in.

So is it "given away" or "loaned", as in "the ten winners will be loaned Hasselblad equipment for four months"?

@marc -- In the US, Best Buy just ran a special on D7000 with 18-140 mm for $650 total. Insane. I couldn't resist. ;)

Deardorff: Dynamic range has not changed. FAIL
No mechanical mirror lock. FAIL

A 'specialized' camera for studio and scenic guys? What happens when the scenic guy happens upon a great wildlife opporunity?

Canon does not seem to understand that a camera that performs well in most any circumstancels is what is wanted. The technology is there so why 'dumb down' a camera?

And the video limitations? WHY? So users will need to buy a separate camera for this use?

Sorry Canon but you are not thinking clearly and still playing Catch Up to Nikon. Highest megapixels but a crippled camera in too many ways.

"A 'specialized' camera for studio and scenic guys? What happens when the scenic guy happens upon a great wildlife opporunity?"

He takes a 7D II. Or do you think there are tigers running around the studio?

And tomorrow all the fanboys who were ready to rip your heart out for FF blasphemy will praise this as a sign of Ricoh's brilliance.

Howard Moftich: Welcome to capitalism. Charge what you think the market will pay. In this case, Canon is obviously sitting on a warehouse full of them so they need to get rid of them as their value is decreasing by them sitting unsold.

"Yeah, your ilk typically prefers warmongers..."

ROFLMAO. Make an attempt to use your brain instead of just reading talking points.

"if you were born here and your parents weren't rich, you'd be waiting tables now..."

Nonsense and loser propaganda. Like J A C S, I arrived here with $5 in my pocket and practically no English. Yes, I was born here, figuratively speaking, with nothing but high school diploma. I live in a nice area, own my home, and live a decent life, with nothing but hard work.

Those who live the way you described do so because they buy into your loser philosophy. I know, there are many elements in this country that love that philosophy because it gets them voters hooked on government largesse, but don't ever count on people like us voting for class warfare mongers. We know better.

@J A C S -- I am afraid we are talking to theoretical know-it-alls. It's a lost cause. They will never let reality stand in the way of a theory. Greetings from another survivor of a "workers' paradise".

"Yes, at that time in any country beyond the iron curtain education was completely free"

No, it wasn't. What an utter nonsense. I don't know that? I lived there, too, you arrogant buffoon. If you think anything in this world is free, you are clueless beyond any hope. Please take your preaching somewhere else.

"Oh, and BTW, no industry in China is owned by Army generals. You really don't know what you're talking about. Hint: Fox News isn't telling you the truth."

Were you replying to me? Because I said nothing of the sort. And judging from your last line, you are just reciting someone else's talking points. You know absolutely NOTHING about me, and considering that line, it is absolutely pointless to continue this conversation.

And then you replied to someone else: "apparently your socialist country behind the iron curtain gave you a GOOD EDUCATION for free"

For free? You live in a dreamland.

"China. A communist country"" -- No, it isn't. Communism vs. capitalism - economic systems (State ownership of the means of production vs. private ownership). Democracy vs. totalitarianism -- political systems. China abandoned communism but stayed totalitarian.
