Not that I suppose anyone's looking for me, but if anyone's looking for me, I'm probably twittering in the Twitterverse.

The cicadas love me.  Well, they keep landing on me anyway.

They have a face only another cicada could love (this one's in 720p).

And here's a professional job, "Return of the Cicadas 2013".

Amazon doesn't make the iPad, Amazon just makes the iPad better.

Google, too. 
All the best stuff on the iPad is made by either Amazon or Google. 
Go figure.

Still nothing much happening around here. 

Just another sailboat drifting by (sped up 12X).

Since my old 2010-era iPhone 4 only records 720p video, there are only so many pixels to work with when applying a "digital zoom"  The lack of any optical zoom on the phone and its limited resolution are particularly obvious when trying to capture something decent of a critter that is inclined to run away. 

Original critter video (uncropped):

Post-processed critter video (cropped):

Still, it's not like I'm complaining:  I'm old enough to be impressed with any device I can keep in my shirt pocket that not only records 1280x720 video to solid-state memory but then also wirelessly uploads it to the cloud.  This stuff used to be science fiction.  (And it's not like I need to make better critter videos anyway.)

Seriously, Apple... your iOS won't let me listen to iTunes tunes while I surf the web?? 

That's so lame.

It's a pleasant 57°F and sunny outside this afternoon, but rather windy.  Whitecaps on the Hudson. 

Raw 720p video from the iPhone 4...

Tuesday it's forecast to be 78°F.  Would be a nice day to not sit indoors at a keyboard.
