Taken with the refurbished $269 Canon PowerShot G1 X that I received this afternoon — from Canon. JPEGs, as usual, with no post-processing, whatsoever. Straight out of the camera. I am not a lover of post-processing. Image of G1 X taken with my Panasonic Lumix FZ1000.


Original 4352 x 3264, ~3Mb,
JPEGs reduced to 1024 x 768, 170 Kb, for display here.
So v. low resolution. Sorry.

Enjoy. Thank YOU.

Talk about irony.

This unprecedented, hard to imagine (let alone quantify) exponential explosion in data over the last 2 years, and IBM, in theory the BEST company to have profited from it given that it has servers, storage, software and services, saw its revenues decline — over that very same period.

This is not right. This reflects on management.

AB_de_Villiers_glove_(cropped)Talk about an abundance of riches. The South African batting line is ‘crazy’ in not a GREAT way. Quinton de Kock, Amla, du Plessis, AB, Duminy (who has blossomed in the last 12 months), Behardien and Miller! What a nice problem to have.

Abraham Benjamin “AB” de Villiers at #4 is a waste — and he knows that. Yes, of course, I know that he is wicket-keeping as well, BUT I think he is plenty fit. He should open with de Kock — who I think is THE most EXCITING young cricketer on the scene at the moment! I have seen a lot of him and there is a lot to like. Very pleasing on the eye.

AB coming in at #4 does NOT give him enough overs. That is the issue. AB #3 and du Plessis #4.
