In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at curved sensors, bait and switch SSD marketing, a Paris sunset and a novel opportunity.

  • The back of your eyeball is curved so why shouldn't you camera sensor be curved? Felix Esser reports on Sony's curved sensor technology presented at recent symposium in Hawaii. The company showed off two curved sensors built with a new sensor-bending machine.
  • Joel Hruska claims Kingston and PNY "are launching SSDs with one hardware specification and then quietly changing the hardware configuration after reviews have gone out."
  • In Paris Sunset, Harold Davis captures the City of Light from Tour Montparnasse, thus avoiding that eyesore.
  • Kirk Tuck has published The Lisbon Portfolio, his novel about a photographer, as a $9.99 Amazon Kindle book.

More to come...
