" Over 100 members of the TV and film industry ask Apple to improve Final Cut Pro"

That's like bullying your partner of three decades to have a face lift
Things are the way they are
Companies may listen to customers but products don't
If you need something else, consider going elsewhere

Tape5: Masterpiece?
You mean like Rembrandt?
Or Michelangelo?

@ both of you Bobbseys
Hey I'm a genius snow flake myself and create masterpieces regularly.
No need to get shirty.

Next is a ten year mirror ban for those who are caught faking their faces on social media.

On article Photokina is cancelled indefinitely (368 comments in total)

The world is shedding skin with an increasing frequency nowadays
The real is disappearing fast
The virtual is managed by those who control the electrons and the photons
And by extension, the neurotransmitters
Welcome to the fast century
And it's only 2021.

Tape5: Well like Woody Allen said, fruit flies like a banana.

@ MrGubrz

No, but you're using the other things he said and did to be smug.

Relaxed: Goodbye intel.

Why are you saying goodbye to intel?

They're just completing Aurora, the fastest supercomputer in US history to reach exascale computing capable of 1000 petaflop operations with a plan to go live in 2021.

It will be used for research in clean fusion, cancer treatment and cell biology, biochemistry, aerospace design, neuroscience and high energy collision.

There is more to chip tech than photo editing and facetiming with mama.

You should be saying hello Intel.

On article Opinion: Camera names are getting ridiculous (706 comments in total)

Well, don't try the pharmaceutical products for a solution.
Ridiculous all on their own with no abbreviations or numbers.

Here is a selection from a list of hundreds of drug names:

Pembrolizumab
Talimogene Laherparepvec
Idarucizumab
Isavuconazonium
Levetiracetam
Empagliflozin
Umeclidinium

Just a nerdy note. The eyes don't see the world, the brain does that.
ie. we will "never" know how the insects see the world.
There are even serious doubts if humans share their visual perception.

Sure the lens deals with light distortion successfully

But it comes with a handful of other distortions for which you need brain surgery to eradicate

For those who are interested I know a top neurosurgeon in LA.

During Corona I turned my door into a bottle opener
And didn't have to modify a thing

The only people who buy this lens are those who can.

I doubt it if anyone wants to.

Tape5: I suspect what is done here is misunderstood by many. The way the material is presented by the researchers doesn't help.

It makes no sense for the human retina or any device anywhere to claim "seeing" photons in flight or recording their paths.

To "see" a photon, it has to be absorbed and only then information regarding its exact whereabouts is released to the universe.

A photon in flight is a probability "wave function" in flight. A wave function cannot be photographed or seen.

A camera can "never" record the path of a photon not because the photons are too quick for its shutter action, but that there is nothing to record until the photon has arrived at its destination. Imagine throwing an invisible ball that becomes visible only if caught by someone and if you could not see that someone, you would never know that a ball was thrown.

If you are in deep space positioned behind a trillion watt laser light source, you could not tell if it's turned on or off.

If on a busy highway that is littered with empty buckets, you as a pedestrian see buckets being thrown onto the footpath as a result of the cars hitting them (Rayleigh scattering), what you are seeing are buckets, not cars.

The cars that remain on the highway and are part of the traffic, you can never see them or know their positions.

You can be standing on the footpath and by watching the buckets deduct that there is traffic on the highway (QED causality issue aside), but you cannot claim to document the position of the cars from the information you get from the buckets because no car that has remained on the highway has hit a bucket.

Can you deduct the position of the front of the traffic (not the individual cars) when a beam of cars start their journey by observing when the first lot of buckets fly onto the footpath?

Only with a camera that takes at least a billion frames a second which is impossible due to a number of physical laws involving information and entropy.

There is no way Arthur would be so bitter if he had more beauty filters.
