Diminutive Wireless Keyboard plus Tragic MacPad


Coercing myself into using these wireless input devices. Like the optics, usability remains to be seen.
Now, how about some wireless synching for iP* devices, Apple? Wireless mains?
Yours truly, enjoying a tingling sense of EMI (electromagnetic interference). ;-)

From the Department of Unashamed Fanboyism

All enthusiasm aside, there are things you can’t do on an iPad or an iPhone on a mobile basis. Coding for one. Cory Doctorow is right, you know. If you’re a maker, you”ll find yourself hemmed and hindered by the character of these devices and their ecosystem. (more…)

Getting Hooked On -it

June 5, 2010

In my previous post, I was wrong. Sorry about that. Leica wants you to start your M lens habit by buying their new (introduced 2007) Summarit lenses. They reactivated a lens name from the 1950-ies there. It basically means a lens speed slower than f/2.0 (Summicron) and faster than f/2.8 (Elmarit). In their modern incarnation, all Summarits are f/2.5. They share common components of their barrels and avoid exotic glasses and aspheric surfaces. Leica quality standards and mounting accuracy are maintained, though.
Lots more to read about them is on Erwin Puts’ site.
So, the Summarit 75 mm actually closed a gap in my lens lineup. I gave in and got it in today’s lunch break. Shapely legs … uhm, lens, isn’t it?
