I am a huge animal rights fan, but the monkey does not have a legal standing in the courts. The court got this one right. If this were not the case my dogs and I would be in court every day for years to come.

When is the industry going to learn that more MP isn't the answer.

John Crawley: Oh, we'll let you drill your oil wells there, just don;t take any pictures. What a bunch of BSers.

I don't want them drilling in national parks of Federal forests. they've got enough room to drill as it is.

So here is a question.Let's say you are having a party and a paparazzi flies a drone over your party for picture which he is going to sell. Is the air space above your property restricted if you have fenced off land property?

It is the first step in pay to play. it has been roumored for quite some time that a lot of software companies want to head in that direction. Pity.

By the way, if you need a Photoshop-like program, check out GIMP. Runs on Windows, OSX, Linux and others.

Also, FREE! Link:

This is horrible news. I fear this and Microsoft's move to the Cloud will have us all paying as we play. this is bad for all users everywhere. I predicted this a year and a half ago and was laughed at by friends. I said, "Soon we will be paying to use our software on an on-going usage. It will be like old long distance. the more you use, the more you pay." Watch. It will happen.

I wonder if Desmond gave him the rights to photograph his"move"? Too many lawyers in this world...way too many. Most need to be share cropping in Alabama.

Sorry, the judge blew this one. he doesn;t understand design and composition. He should stick to law and let us stick to photography.

On article Lytro camera overview and discussion with CEO Ren Ng (101 comments in total)

I think this simple little box is going to be the wave of the future. Fast lens...almost limitless focusing possibilities, easy to carry about...not at all intrusive like a bid DSLR rig is. This guy is on to something. To be sure, it will evolve (hard to believe I grew up in Texas and can use that word...LOL) The Lytro is worth watching for sure...I think maybe worth owning...(like the first MAC was and is...)
