Maybe they can invest some of that in making their software run acceptably fast

Just buy a regular one and scratch any word you want into the body with a rusty nail. Truly unique then.

I guess if it was brass it would weigh about 2kg but for that price they should spray it any colour you like to appease the tragic hipsters it's aimed at

dgumshu: So what is the relevance of theses photos? What am I missing here? It's tragic that people died, but it's just a recent ship wreck and the photos only show damage... that's to be expected in any wreck. It's not the Titanic, Lusitania or the Arizona.

Theses shots don't reveal any truth, provide any evidence of guilt or innocence or anything else for that matter... just damage. What was the pourpose of all the sneak around drama... as though he was trying to uncover some wrong doing?

The reason? To make a mediocre coffee table book to sell and make money from the sort of people who slow down on motorways causing logjams to look at accidents.

How do you know he had more skill than he let on. Maybe it was the gear making him better

Boeing skipper: "You can build a windows PC for a much lower price". This is what I did two years ago, spent $2,000 on a custom build. I have so many issues with my PC, I've had rasomwares, viruses, Windows forcing updates on a weekly basis if not more, crashes and various bugs.
Meanwhile, I've used Macbooks at work and when I travel for the past 4 years and I never ever had a single issue with them.
The day Windows become as reliable as Apple products, I'll switch over, but for now I'm looking to replace my PC with the iMac Pro.

And yet here I sit with my 4 year old pc, never having a problem. Although I don't blindly click on links I don't know, so never had ransom ware, I keep my virus checkers up to date so never had a virus, I install all those nasty updates that Microsoft "force" on me and never had a problem. So I've never felt the need to blame the manufacturer for my own mistakes.

When it came time to upgrade a little last year I took the side panel off and plugged in a far more powerful video card that cost a few quid. Rather than being forced to sell the system off and buying whole new vastly overpriced one.

On article Image style AI can convert paintings to photographs (54 comments in total)

Using 'image style transfer' their AI can convert Monet's impressionist paintings into a much more realistic image that comes close to photo quality, giving you a good idea of the scene that the French painter was looking at when he put down his easel and started to paint.

And thus completely and utterly missing the point of what Monet and impressionism was all about. Awesome for every artistic ignoramus out there. I'm sure they'll sell loads

On article Throwback Thursday: Nikon D70 (220 comments in total)

Great camera. Was the last Nikon to have next to no IR blocking so you could shoot with an IR filter at sensible shutter speeds. Always amused when people spent hundreds converting them to IR when it didn't really need it.

It's a good thing the sensor is so small. If it was proper MF then no chance
