On article Samsung launches first removable UFS memory cards (177 comments in total)

Would this type of storage be usable as the actual "hard drive" in new, cheap PCs?
They would certainly take up nearly zero space!

On article Back to the action: Nikon D500 Review (1083 comments in total)

Does the use of the LCD "live view" screen result in reduced focusing speed (or effectiveness)?
I'm referring to still photography...not video.
As I recall, the D7100 "live view" resulted in reduced performance.

On article Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 IV Review (1568 comments in total)

For the first time, I handled this camera at the local Best Buy. Even though there are plenty of photos of the camera within this review, I was shocked at the incredibly teeny tiny size. I was hoping it was small enough, actually, but found myself thinking that it was almost too small! My hands felt almost bunched-up as I tried to manipulate the camera. Looking forward to the next, updated version! soon, I hope!

Alex Permit: This reads like a google translation of a japanese press release. Is the english language market so small that they can't afford a single native english language speaker in their marketing department?

North Americans and Northern Europeans are obsessed with demonstrating their willingness to self flog, and/or demonstrate "open mindedness".... they love to get offended FOR other people, too!
Even the most subtle things can be leveraged for maximum "I'm offended" status.
Their favorite theme is: The U.S. isn't the center of the world!

dark goob: It has FANS inside it? FANS? In a tablet? WTƒ?

I'm mystified. This is supposed to compete with iPad somehow?

<shakes head>

I'd be surprised if it survived for a year. It's not even solid state! It has moving parts INSIDE! FANS! lolol

The Macbook has no fan. The lowest Surface Pro 4 with the m3 processor reportedly has no fan.

Early orders are accepted in a week.... so, when do actual orders / deliveries tend to take place after that?

At least it's not dripping with gold.
For my taste, the black DF is a great looking camera.
I remember when Canon film cameras began getting the curvy, rounded design... I thought it was horrible....a cheap attempt at looking modern.

Zeisschen: they can now make it unlimited cause nobody is buying their phones...

I'm a big fan of OneDrive for two reasons:
1) With the subscription, you get lots of storage (and now even more) AND the latest Office suite at all times....all on multiple computers....and the software suite is actually useful and essential to almost everyone.
2) Their storage system uses actual FOLDERS... not "albums" or "sets" which are clumsy when you want to download chunks of photos all at once.

BfSkinner: I'm just now uploading boatloads of photos to OneDrive. I just want normal folders. No "albums", no "sets" or any other proprietary cute stuff.
Six years ago, I spent huge amounts of time organizing my Flickr sets. I felt so clever. Until I realized that there was no way to, all at once, download all of my Flickr photos & sets into a similarly organized fashion on a local hard drive.
Here I am, years later, fixing that mess.
OneDrive is included with a Microsoft 365 subscription...one terabyte.
With all of that said, I wonder if Flickr now has a way of doing a full download that properly sorts the photos. I haven't bothered to check lately.

I just checked to make sure that full size files were being uploaded on OneDrive. It certainly appears so. My Nikon D50 NEF files seem to be up there, full size and fully intact.
Please double check with the OneDrive's free service.

Very cool... didn't know they offered that CD option.
Well, I continue to upload to OneDrive as I type this.
Now, I am certain to have regular "folders" that are understood by any operating system.
I also found at least one 3rd party Flickr app (for mass downloads), but it was buggy.... so, I'd rather skip the tricks, and just go with a system that is not so proprietary.

Does Picasa still exist? Please tell me it does.
I unfortunately signed up for Google+, and it turned my easy Picasa photo storage/sharing into a confusing Facebook thingy.

Hopefully I can get back to the old fashion Picasa system.
