10 January 2017

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 roller coasters, a perspective on the Hasselblad-DJI deal, a perspective on CES 2017 and catching up with Andrew Darlow.

  • Rian Dundon rediscovers The Thrill and Terror of Vintage Roller Coasters, in Pictures, which is about the only place we feel comfortable with them. How such graceful designs can invoke such unmitigated terror is beyond us. But not beyond a wide angle lens.
  • Ming Thein offers his Two Cents on the Whole Hasselblad-DJI Thing. He's a Hasselblad ambassador, he notes, but not involved in the business. But he did work in the mergers and acquisitions business a while ago. And he likes the deal.
  • Derrick Story thinks The Best Thing About CES Was Las Vegas. "CES reminded me of cable television -- all those channels with nothing to watch," he writes. So he hung out with old friends, residents and visitors.
  • Speaking of old friends, we discovered this gofundme project for Tyler's Intensive Austism Therapy. Tyler is the son of Andrew and Belinda Darlow. Andrew has published The Imaging Buffet for years and for almost as long, we've kept a copy of his 528-page 301 Inkjet Tips and Techniques on the shelf just to show our Epson and Canon printers who's boss. About the gofundme project for Tyler, Andrew wrote, "I generally don't share such personal family matters and I've never requested assistance in this way, but I had a feeling that our story would help others who are experiencing similar family situations and I was right. The outpouring of love and thoughtful comments have been very heartwarming." And the project is halfway to its goal.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
