"This isn’t their problem, guys. It’s ours. We have to solve it.

Sexual harassment isn’t an occupational hazard. It’s not a glitch in the complex matrix of modern life. It’s not something that just “happens.” It’s something men do. It’s a choice men make. It’s a problem men enable. It’s sometimes a crime men commit. And it is not in the power nor the responsibility of women to wage war on this crime.”

After playing with this for a bit, I can definitely say it’s amazingly better than any other camera app I’ve used. It’s crazy fast, it has beautiful(ly simple) animations, and it has features that match or beat the best that’s out there.

Highlights:
• Full-frame photo preview
• Actively discourages VVS*
• Simpler settings menu
• Lens Blur mode that works impressively well
• Higher-res Photo Spheres and Panoramas

The Lens Blur mode is very similar to what you see on the HTC One (2014), except it works. And it works with only one camera, so any phone on 4.4+.

It’s always interesting to get new players into a category, but I just haven’t been impressed with Amazon’s hardware efforts. They seem like excellent ideas, executed cheaply with a sole focus of getting people to buy more Amazon stuff.

Okay, which is pretty much the other players’ strategies… Apple and Google want to sell you apps, music, movies, books, etc. But I feel like Google and Apple know that the UX is important, where Amazon is taking a heavy handed “All Roads Lead to Amazon” approach.

What are your thoughts? :)

Our first look at Amazon’s smartphone — but it’s in a protective housing (similar to the iPhone 4 prototype found at a bar)

Got my NFC Ring today! It’s pitch black. Which looks awesome, but makes it super hard to see where the inlays are.I found the NFC “sweet spot” on my Nexus 5 pretty easily, but boy is it touchy. I really don’t think the palm-side inlay is usable as it’s just so dang hard to line stuff up. But hey! I helped fund a company exploring the possibilities of wearable technology. And I have a sexy ring (with some interesting characteristics) to boot.http://click-to-read-mo.re/p/6Apq

FWIW

It’s elementary OS. Not Elementary OS, elementaryOS, eOS, or anything else.

The next release is Isis. Not ISIS. Not Iris.

I just thought I’d clarify in case people were confused.

It may not seem like a big deal, but we’ve chosen the names and capitalization form a reason, and if we all refer to them the same way it can cut down on confusion/dilution.
