    Yeah. They were shopping for outside funding for the last couple of years but couldn’t get much attention. They were pretty far behind the technology curve when compared to other leaders in the...

    Agreed. If you’ve got time to worry about the success of the competition you’re clearly not focused on your own success.

    I’d like to see a tilt/shift lens for phones, like they use for fine art and architectural photography.

    It was fairly well written and I really thought it was someone grossly overestimating the power of their phone. The ISO compliance should have tipped me off I suppose. Alas, I was taken in.

    You’re never going to get anywhere near .001mm with a photograph. Even if you had the camera in a copy stand capable of that level of accuracy the actual camera isn’t that close to parallel to the...

    IDK seems to sum it up for you. Instead of bothering to look for yourself you’re just spouting off about things you simply don’t have a good understanding of. NASDAQ in a big corporation that also...

    We had a fire this summer and lost five machines. They were similarly toasted, with controls turned to slag and most of the paint baked off. What the fire didn’t get was summarily destroyed by the...

    You are way out of your depth. The NASDAQ Index is the part of NASDAQ everybody has heard of, but it’s only a small part of NASDAQ Inc. They’re every bit as significant as the financial information...

    Police being allowed to lie, and act in otherwise criminal ways, boils down to how the job performance of government prosecuting attorneys is measured. They are assessed on the number of successful...
