Douglas F Watt: Pretty disappointing collection - unless the real point of this was some kind of implicit editorializing. Still disappointing.

Indeed, Definitely the smell of an agenda here.

A little too close to another ejected food product for mine.
The absence of actual Chicken is troubling.

I did.
But thanks for the heads up.
The rub is, "better camera" is just another sales buzz word for the VAST majority of Phone buyers; it only ascends to any importance here.

Excellent.
JUST what phone users needed, more paranoia about missing out on the latest and greatest. Massive prices on the Dark Web for the "XX" or Secret Handshake model.
The split by region is just icing on the cake. Popcorn all round !

100% Adobe RGB, eh ?
Pity someone didn't think to provide a hardware button to instantly preview sRGB in Interweb resolutions. Even DreamColourists have to pay ther way eventually.

Ron Poelman: Finally, an excuse to retire my i5-2500K (?). Now for the 2 year wait for the board manufacturers to get up to speed and down to my price.The significant thing here is the kick in the pants for conventional hard drives.There's a mountain range of perfectly good drives building up as people have swung to SSD, be nice of they could be utilised, instead of junked.

@ panoviews
Same.
Turned dial to 4.1 on the day it was assembled and never touched since.
To add insult to injury, I replaced the garage PC the other day with a Sandy 2.4, $108 with 8gb ram and a little Video Card.
Some people don't know what they're sitting on.

Not crazy. It's the standard Supermarket model.
Pay for your shelf space, whenever WE feel like it.
Anyone considering trying this route should study the supermarket end game. Clone the product with your own offshore generic, drop the original like a hot spud and then dilute and package rob your generic until people give up buying it and it's time for a new one. In the meanwhilst the Originator has gone bust, closed his business and the job losses spread up the supply chain. One good thing about Fashion mags, they are eminently disposable.

Straight to Street View.

and Google politely asked to pay their taxes;
all over the planet.

Window dressing.
If an organisation of this weight hasn't got the next incumbent
ready and waiting in the wings, then Management has failed big time.

In reply to:

MPS Photographic: I looked up "drag racing". Of the 31 hits, only three were correct. The rest were other forms of racing, or just of cars in general. I think that if the three hadn't been captioned with the exact search term, the query would have been labeled a miss. The whole project still needs human curating to be a success.

Only 31 hits for a cock in a frock with a big block ?

"Just another cat" is hardly earth-shaking "information".
