New photo apps that heavily process photos get me almost every time! I have to try them out. I’ll never understand the digital magic under their hoods. Perhaps that’s the reason I feel so drawn to them? So here are some experiments from today’s photo apps download of the Prisma app for iPhone. (Despite what […]
If you remember that expression, you just carbon dated yourself to the 6th century B.C. But no worries, I remember it and the yellow happy face, and “The devil made me do it,” and the yellow happy face with a bullet hole. Jeeze. The 60’s were such odd times. “Here come the fuzz” was a […]
Corporations are about maximizing profit. I get that. For all of its brilliant “Think different” marketing, Apple is, in fact, no different.

Apple has gone too far! I hate your UI! Minimize everything to such an extent that I can’t find anything and waste too much time looking for it rather than using it.
I guess you can now say that I officially live in Atlanta. We went walking in Piedmont Park where I took the quintessential “Atlanta” photo of the mid-rises reflecting in Lake Clare. The photo turned out nicely. In fact, the photo turned out so nicely I turned it into a watercolor using a new iOS […]
