Boomrock Lodge

Boomrock

Quite possibly the most amazing spot on earth :)

"Boomrock is comprised of three venues, The Lodge, The Track and The Bunkers."  I'm not sure if anything more needs to be said, but in case you are interested you can shoot stuff, throw knives, go extreme off-roading, do hot laps on a track or in a rally car, and fly a f***ing chopper!  When done, you drink whiskey and eat venison.  Had I known about this place sooner I would have got married here.

He takes many shots with different focus and stacks them using specialized software.  The results are stunning.

Adobe Deblur

Adobe Image Deblurring Sneak Peek

Wow, this is some amazing new technology from Adobe.  Can deblur a crappy image so now everyone can be a good photographer.  No word on when it will show up in a product, I'm hoping Photoshop CS6.

Google Translate for Android gets v2.2 update, adds more language support for speech-to-speech

We are getting closer to the Star Trek "Universal Translator" becoming a reality.  There are several apps out there that will convert speech or text in real-time.  You can speak into your mobile phone in English, it immediately plays it back in another language.  Very useful if you are trying to communicate in a foreign land.

First Post

My first blog bost on the new site.  The main purpose of this site is to have more creative control of how images I post are presented.  It also allows me to post content, recommendations, and news I find interesting in one spot rather than spread among many social networking sites out there.
