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....

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!
Walter: Were you listening to The Dude's story? Donny: I was bowling. Walter: So you have no frame of reference here, Donny. You're like a child who wanders into the middle of a movie and wants to know...
