On one hand, Lytro’s cameras capture a scene in a more literal sense:
Imagine a refocusable MRI, or a security camera that could render a person’s face in crystal clarity with a single tap and their license plate in another. Suddenly “Enhance!” becomes a real thing, not just CSI fiction.
But on the other hand:
Thompson never quite says it, but he seems to feel a tension between his artistic vision and the inherent interactivity that comes with Lytro’s “living photos.” Photographers freeze a moment, and do so with particular intentions; the focus, the depth of field, the composition all serve a careful purpose. Publishing a light‑field shot can feel like putting the camera in a viewer’s hands and letting them choose the settings and shot they want. So for its most particular buyers, Lytro offers “animations,” which let you program focus changes, pans, zooms, and perspective shifts, and publish a photograph that people watch rather than simply look at.
Still, I want. My only worry is that because the format is new, there’s no standard, and the data of the shots taken are proprietary (for now, potentially forever if there’s no way to convert them over later).
I’m kind of a freak about capitalization. Not that I know how to capitalize things properly every time, but I feel that at the very least I aspire to capitalize the right words in a title. Doing so, I find, adds a subtle but worthwhile dollop of goodness to written text. Proper capitalization shows that you care about the English language, that you know that in a given headline, not all words should be treated with equal emphasis, that some of them deserve more prominence than others. In that sense, capitalization is, to me, the very same thing as good typography.

My question is: why are EE and Vodafone involved? Why should my phone network be part of the transaction?
(Microsoft, get in there. I want to be able to tap with my Windows Phone next time I’m back in London.)
“To do everything we can to keep our products out of landfills.”
This. This is something I feel nobody in tech but Apple actually thinks about, this long-term life of a product. The iPhone 4 got iOS 7 four years after launch. iMacs and MacBook Pros from 2007 are still being supported by Mavericks.
(Microsoft seems to be trying to do the same with Windows Phone, but one major OS update and two years is too soon to tell.)

I’ve found my onesie!
if I lived in GoT, I’d want to be from Dorne.
Alex bought some yesterday afternoon, but then left them on top of the fridge for five hours instead of putting them in the freezer.
Number 76, about the stairs: yea, that.
