The sound of silence
« on: April 23, 2013, 06:31:00 AM »
So today is the much anticipated April 23 day of announcements... When the earth shakes and both the 70D (new sensor technology) and the 200-400 lens ( rumored to exist longer than Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster) get revealed to the world......

So far, silence....

So far, silence....

One thing has become crystal clear over the past years:
  • no leaks = no announcement

So, follow the leaks, as they say 8).

That is the first thought that hit me. I just love that song!

And then there was the news of the bombing in Boston some days back - and in Tripoli and the killings in Nigeria and so many more deaths... for no reason. And as you can notice I am just talking about human deaths...
*sigh*

I wish we were "better" living beings...

Well, not total silence.

Nikon today announced a firmware update for their Coolpix P7700.

People ARE talking!
You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.
