The profit is only a reflection of how much the public love their brains to be manipulated by distorted photons and sound waves, generated by the creatives who use the Adobe recipes, so that they feel better when they part with their money.

"Nikon D850 sensor confirmed as Sony-made"
Why is it that for so many it's like discovering who their real father is?

The lens is in a class of its own.
I particularly love the way it documents testosterone in action.
No need for crystalline xray photography.

The smart guy who suggested this name for a drone needs cognitive therapy.

Bokeh Blues: Apparently Tony is into cuckolding.

You mean he serially and unwittingly invests his parental effort in some other bloke's offspring?
He's come close to the full definition of a selfless noble savage.

I cannot imagine too many senior software development engineers frequenting this site.
It's like going into a classroom filled with rowdy 7 year olds and announcing a position for a head teacher.

Was it a randomized double-blind placebo controlled study?

DiffractionLtd: $89 for 128G works out to about $2450/oz, given the weight of a micro SD card. So, this thing costs more to produce than processing 50 TONS of rock to extract an oz of gold? Worth about $1400.00?

It's called science and technology.
Merck, a pharmaceutical company in US manufactures a drug that sells for 10,000 US dollars for 200 milligrams. That's 50,000,000 dollars a kilo.
You should've sent your note to the North Korean leader. It could help him wake up a bit faster.

Tape5: Nice sensitive humble photographic work.
This demonstrates extreme poverty however. Many of these poor souls are suffering from conditions they are not even aware of. In these communities if you get sick, you're gone: Severe infections, appendicitis, gall bladder disease, acute diabetes, hypertension, glaucoma, mental illness, severe nutritional deficiencies, etc.
So there's a lot happening behind the beautiful photos.

@King Penguin

Send an email to Bill Gates and plead with him to stop ending his efforts to reduce poverty in Africa at once.

Because he has billions invested in "improving the locals whether they wanted to be saved or improved or not!"

When really really sick, every human wants a hospital nearby, not just the ones who want to be improved or have their souls saved.

Here is Annie Lennox's lyrics and her definition of The Missionary Man for your further reading:

Oh, the missionary man, he's got God on his side
He's got the saints and apostles backin' up from behind
Black eyed looks from those Bible books
He's a man with a mission, got a serious mind

@wolfloid
If you call my observation simplistic (which surprises me) I have to call yours a romantic one.
It is a fact that infant mortality, maternal mortality and disease control in these communities are abysmal.
And I like to see a young girl in a classroom not sitting on dirt kissing a buffalo.
These people do not live under these conditions to provide us with a projection of what we dislike about our urban lives.
It's poverty.
That's also the exact reason why most citizens in affluent societies are not prepared to hand over the keys to their suburban homes and their BMWs to go live among them. I have no doubt they are very hospitable people.

Within a few short decades from now visual and auditory interfaces can change the users' live environment in any way. The solid reality will then be reduced to a scaffolding for the virtual perception to be pasted on.

You wish to take your handsome partner for a walk in a beautiful forest or send your soldiers to fight the hideous beasts or plant more trees in your neighbourhood?

No more free accounts with a guarantee of higher fees in future
We should've known Flickr was getting greased up to sell itself with their "terabyte for all" news.
Now Smugmug says as much as you can eat. It's like putting more food on your table while you're in the bathroom bringing up your first Flickr course.

The subscription business model is based on:
1 Surprise the users by offering them something free of charge
2 Give them more
3 Pop their eyeballs by offering them everything they could possibly ask for (the last stage of free)
4 Hit their wallets with a subscription

So if you're looking for an online money spinner idea that will appeal to your financing bankers, fill up the blanks and you're set:

All the XXXXXXX you could possibly XXXXXXXX, for a subscription.

2 Outright frightening
3 Boring
4 Even more boring
5 Lazy
6 Even more lazy
7 Patronising
8 Boring
9 Even more patronising ( don't we suffer enough from racial attribution errors?)
10 Boring
11 Lazy
12 Slaughtering the available light
13 Another ethnic attribution error (and lazy)
14 You must, must, be kidding. You're not?

I'm sure I'm not the only person who's laughing. And that's a good thing I guess.

Watching drones in flight just got one step more irritating knowing some nerd controller could be doing limb movements at the other end.
