About me:

My large collection of Canon FD lenses is back to life. Thanks to mirrorless cameras and adapters. I particularly love the FD 35-105mm w/macro, f/3.5, which is well known for its clarity and sharpness, and the FD 50mm, 1.2, L.

The magic (or is it the madness?) of nostalgia

Not a single penny of that was from my money :)
I love Corel products.

Wondering what stacking software Tuncer uses.

Would that mean 5GB per second, assuming 5MB file size???
Someone feel free to correct my head calculation.
10 to 11 seconds of a burst means a 64GB MicroSD is full.
Hopefully they have already figured out the storage solution, and the black-out time after every few seconds.

A dumb site that I don't even care if it exists.
But it should be a very easy problem to solve.
Let the user have an option in their settings for their own pages of 1, 2, 3, 4, or even 5 tiles.

Let's hope NO users of JunkGram would have a heart attack over this issue, since it is far more significant than the North Korean nuclear and cruise missiles issues!

sh10453: Comments are exactly as expected.

Just like in politics when someone makes a negative comment about Trump, a whole army of Trump fans quickly gang up on him/her and launch a vicious attack.

If you say a negative word about Apple or its i-products, a whole army of i-Sheep will rain their arrows over your head.
Discussions used to be civilized, with much higher level of respect and politeness.
People used to accept that not everyone agrees with them, and that everyone is entitled to their opinion or to disagree.

Now I can say that my Huawie Honor 8, for $260, can actually compete head-on with these $1000 devices, aside from a couple of non-essential features (Plus that I don't care about 4K video on a phone).
OK, that was my 2-cents, which I'm entitled to
Reaching for my helmet and my bulletproof vest :)

Since I don't do confessions, I won't get into memories, but I can say that I really do miss college days, despite the very long nights of engineering homework.
A big sigh!!!!!

A 500GB SSD in an external case is now headline news???
I have had a few for that past several years (500, 750GB, and 1 and 2TB), although I only paid $10 for the USB 3 cases, each.

Some good advice from the tech people at ZDNet: (There are 16 of them)

"New to iOS 11? Change these privacy and security settings right now".

No need to walk back.
I explained what it meant to me.

What do you call a person who camps on the sidewalk, outside an Apple store at midnight, in sub-freezing weather, waiting for the store to open the next morning, to be among the very first to give Apple their cash, on the first release day, even before any reviews have been published?
Yes, you can ask the same question about any other phone, not just Apple's.
You be the judge.

By "i-Sheep" I meant the fanatic fan-boys, and I thought it did not need an explanation because the term is widely used on the Internet.
Apparently it ruffled some feathers, unintentionally.

Mistake # 5: Continuously waving your arms in front of the video camera. It continuously confuses the "eyeballs" of the viewer.

In reply to:

sh10453: It's unfortunate that Kyocera had acquired and quickly destroyed these two iconic names.
I hope that Contax and Yashica will rise from the dead, although they would be completely different firms, except for the names.

A cigarette in an ad in this day and age??? That is not very smart.

@T3,
Your assumption that people don't get out is quite naive.
Not only I have been to at least a dozen countries all over the world, but I lived in some of them.
So I haven't been living in a locked up bunker in Michigan.

In reply to:

sh10453: Bummer!!! I just added 2 Seagate, 6TB each to my storage.
I guess there will always be something more powerful than what we have.

I have 5 Seagate external drives, 2 internal drives, and 1 laptop internal.
Never had an issue with any of them. Some are nearly 10 years old, with heavy use.
But I do have a couple of 500GB Western Digital internal drives that failed on me after one year of use.
Also, in my experience, Maxtor was the king of drive failure. Glad that Seagate acquired them and sentenced them to death.

Now that film is back, I'm heading out to the antique store. I heard that they have some foldable / collapsible Kodak cameras from the 1920s.
Who needs all the new technology!!!
