Small Is Beautiful When It Comes To Photojournalism

Tue November 15, 2011

There’s an interesting article by Dan Havlik over at PDN on how Pulitzer-Prize winning photographer Larry Price prefers to use his Olympus E-P3 with the 12mm pancake lens to keep his photography as discreete as possible. He finds it unobstrusive and that allows him to fit into many uncomfortable situations and to capture revealing moments without attracting attention.

Another photojournalist, Karim Ben Khelifa, took some shots with his iPhone for fun — and found that his editor wanted more. The iPhone allows him to be invisible, not tagged as a photojournalist and ignored. Perfect for capturing images quickly.

And then there’s photojournalist Michael Kamber who eschews the big DSLRs for his Leica M9.

What’s your story? Have you ditched your traditional mirrored DSLR for a mirrorless DSLR? Let’s hear about it.

“McAfee Security Journal: Security Beyond the Desktop” Examines Threat Landscape

Tue November 15, 2011

"McAfee Security Journal: Security Beyond the Desktop" Examines Threat Landscape

"McAfee Security Journal: Security Beyond the Desktop" Examines Threat Landscape

Hacktivism (such as the recent threat from hacker group ‘Anonymous’ to remove the City of Toronto from the Internet), cyberespionage (such as the attack that targeted three Canadian government departments earlier this year), and malware (such as Stuxnet and Duqu) are growing in sophistication, frequency, and reach. Enterprises are feeling increasingly threatened and concerned about their ability to maintain IT security defenses that are strong enough to protect proprietary information.

McAfee today announced the 2011 edition of McAfee Security Journal, a publication that discusses current trends and case studies to help IT security executives and personnel to make better-informed security decisions. Titled “Security Beyond the Desktop,” this edition urges executives to consider preemptive measures to stay a step ahead of the threats, and discusses a number of security concerns that many of them are still wrestling with, including the consumerization of IT, employees’ mobile connectivity, cloud-based apps, and lack of awareness on the part of non-IT employees.

Olympus E-PL3

Humor: An open letter to Canon

Tue November 15, 2011

An open letter to Canon from safetyhammer on Vimeo.

Why does your DSLR shoot video? How many photographers know how to shoot videos? And yet, all the latest DSLRs seem to focus on their video capabilities instead of their still photography capabilities. This tongue-in-cheek open letter to Canon was bound to be written as more and more photographers begin to realize that their beloved DSLRs have been morphed into… videocamcorders.

By the way, great bokeh.

A Modern Bedtime Story: Goodnight iPad, by Ann Droyd

Tue November 15, 2011


From PenguinGroupUSA

This generation of children will never know the tape player, the floppy disk and, if Apple continues to have its way, the CD and DVD. This parody nursery rhyme may well become the staple of our modern world, written by a modern day Dr. Seuss. (Or, more precisely, Goodnight Moon, by Margaret Wise Brown)

Tue November 15, 2011

What does a million photos look like? That’s how many get uploaded to Flickr in a 24-hour period and Artist Erik Kessler’s exhibit at the Foam gallery in Amsterdam gives us an idea of just what 1 million printed pictures look like. Each print is a real photo that was uploaded to Flickr within one 24 hour day span.

It’s Christmas Already for the Red Crabs

Tue November 15, 2011

It’s their annual migration from the rainforest to the ocean to mate on Christmas Island, off the north west coast of Australia. “They” are the Red Crabs that live on the island, all 50 to 120 million of them. The male crabs get to the beach first to dig burrows. When the females arrive, the crabs mate in the burrows. [As is often the case with their human counterparts,] the males leave right after sex to make the long journey back into the island’s forests, leaving the females to drop their eggs into the ocean. It takes about 20 to 30 days for the tiny baby crabs to hatch, emerge from the sea and head back home towards the forest.

McAfee’s Top Five Tips to Avoid Downloading Bad Apps onto Your Mobile Devices

Mon November 14, 2011

McAfee today released its list of top five tips to help consumers avoid downloading bad apps onto their mobile devices.

As we continue to see new mobile devices hitting the market in time for the holiday season, consumers find themselves faced with many great gift choices they can buy for themselves or loved ones. One of the first inclinations for consumers who receive these gifts is to search for and download as many fun and interesting apps as possible. Amidst this excitement, they often forget to consider best practices that will ensure that they don’t download malicious apps that can steal their personal and financial information. McAfee’s list of top five tips is aimed at raising awareness and cultivating safe usage habits to help consumers avoid falling prey to cybercriminals.

McAfee Releases Top Five Tips to Avoid Downloading Bad Apps Maliciously Modified Apps Becoming Popular Vector for Infecting Devices

MARKHAM, Ontario, Nov. 14, 2011 – In response to the increasing interest in mobile applications, McAfee is sharing its top five tips to avoid downloading bad apps. Due to the fact that smartphones and tablets have eclipsed unit sales of desktop and laptop PCs, cybercriminals have set their sights on mobile and maliciously modified apps, and these are becoming a more popular vector for infecting devices. Furthermore, according to a recent Leger Marketing survey commissioned by McAfee Canada, only 21.6 per cent of Canadians believe they are protected from the increasing number of threats on the Internet.1 As a result, this has created the perfect breeding ground for mobile malware, and McAfee Labs is seeing significant growth in this threat landscape. Fortunately, there are some common sense practices that anyone can take to help protect their smartphones and tablets from the growing threat of malware and the persistent threat of unsecured devices.

Here are five easy steps device users can take to secure their own devices:
