Canon’s Newest DSLR – 50D!

August 31, 2008 Leave a comment

Canon recently announced that release of a new DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera, the 50D. The 50D is replacing the Canon 40D, which I own and love. This is an amazing camera, the resolution, speed and ease of use make this one a keeper.

However, after reading the specs on the 50D, I am getting the itch to potentially upgrade. Here are a list of some of the features:

  • 15.1 Megapixel sensor
  • DIGIC 4 Image Processor
  • 6.3fps continuous shooting speed
  • EOS Integrated Cleaning System (improved)
  • 920,000 pixel screen resolution display (3.0″LCD)
  • up to 12,800 ISO sensitivity
  • HDMI Output
  • Improved weather sealing
  • Refreshed Menu
  • AF Face Detection
  • Improved Live View functionality

I will wait on purchasing this camera simply because I would want Canon to iron out any bugs first. I mean this is the first camera in their lineup to use the new DIGIC 4 image processing. I will definitely keep an eye on this amazing camera.

On another note, I am dissapointed that Nikon’s new D90 is the first DSLR that can also capture video (up to 720p at 24fps). Come on Canon!!

I would consider switching to Nikon except that I have all Canon glass.

Kim Kardashian + Dancing With The Stars = WTF??

August 31, 2008 2 comments

What the hell is Kim Kardashian doing on Dancing with the Stars? This show is supposed to have a cast of “stars”, people who are famous and have done something in Hollywood and have been famous, such as act, sing, etc. The other possibility is to be an athlete.

Again, I ask, why is Kim Kardashian on this show? She is not famous for anything except for a sex tape with a d-list R&B singer who was only somewhat famous because of his sister, Brandy. Kim got to Playboy because of her sex tape. She got a reality show because of a sex tape….Sigh!

I use to stomach this show because my wife enjoyed watching it, but now that they are letting anyone on, I don’t think it’s gonna work. Kim Kardashian will probably be the first one off, and if she is, I’m going to laugh my ass off because that would mean that Cloris Leachman, who is a billion years old would have been better than her.

I hope that Kim Kardashian is judged twice one score for her and one for her ass. That thing has a mind of it’s own.

Tara Reid’s New Clothing Line

August 29, 2008 Leave a comment

I hear that Tara Reid now has her own clothing line, at first I think it was called “Vomit” or “Hot Garbage”, but I may be wrong so don’t quote me on this.

But from the picture above you can see that the rope wrapped around her head is part of the summer collection. Tara Reid states, “This item is for those long club nights. When you’re drunk and you feel the urge to “vomit”, your friends no longer need to hold back your hair, they can just pull on the rope. See, everybody wins.”

Way to go Tara, keep up the good work!

Jessica Simpson Sould Just Stop!

I just don’t know where this “woman” is going with her life. She is just a hot mess at this point and her “career” is only alive because of her relationship to Tony Romo.

She continues to torture the ears of people and small animals with her country singing ways. As you can see from the picture above, her wardrobe sense is just as bad as her country singing. But the kicker is that she actually believes that her farts smell like roses and she actually said this to a crowd of people. WHY??

How gross!! Guys fart and it’s funny, girls fart and it’s just gross! Why, you ask? From a guy it’s expected, from a girl it’s not.

Papa Jo, do yourself and the ears of America a favor and put down that crazy horse of a daughter. Let her be Tony Romo’s arm candy and pop out a few more dummies. PLEASE!!

Sex Addiction for David Duchovny?

Can someone please explain to me what “sex addiction” is and why there are actual rehabilitation centers for this? I just can’t believe that having sex can become an addiction. If this is the case then every man on this planet would be a sex addict. Show me one guy, who is past puberty that does not constantly think about sex.

Every teenage boy to grown men think about getting as much ass as possible. It’s the only thing that really matters to a guy. Go to school… Go to work…sex. Internet…sex. Take a shit….sex. Come on people!!

Now, if this is an excuse for Mr. X Files so that he can save face and his marriage, that’s one thing, but to say you have a “sex addiction” problem….that’s just insane!!

Mating and spreading your seed is in our genes as men. This is why a lot of men stray and are not monogamous. So, get the hell out of my face with this bullshit about “sex addiction”. The act of sex is natural and should be enjoyed on a regular basis. We tend to look down on people when they act in any type of sexual manner in public, but those same people who pass judgment are the biggest freaks behind closed doors.

Comcast is Limiting Bandwidth!! What’s Next?

August 28, 2008 1 comment

I read today that Comcast is going to start placing a limit on how much data a subscriber can download. The limit they plan on imposing is 250 gigabytes of data. Granted, 250GB is more than enough for the average user.

I am not so much concerned about the limit more than I am concerned about the internet will soon become a regulated utility. There are too many entities losing money because so many services are free on the internet. The US Post Office is losing tons of money because of email. Phone companies are losing money thanks to services like Instant Messenger and online chatting. They also lose money to cable companies and third party companies that offer VoIP Phone Services.

I can’t remember the last time I used a land line phone that wasn’t at work, or the last time I actually had to mail a letter. I do the majority of my shopping and financial transactions online. My Phone service is through my local cable company, I email or IM everyone I know. I know that there are a lot of people just like me and I think that this worries the local and federal government. They are losing so much money because of the internet. Local government is losing money with online transactions not charging sales tax. This is the biggest reason I shop online. Federal government is not making any money on the internet, because the majority of the services are free.

I don’t mind putting up with ad windows if that means that I don’t have to pay for the service. Ultimately, the internet will be regulated and it will die down. There is way too much information that can be viewed on the internet and that makes it dangerous to any government that wants to control the information that you want to see. Internet Service providers are already blocking certain sites and services that we know nothing about. This will just get bigger as time goes on.

Web 2.0 is just around the corner and that is just the foundation for the government to regulate the internet. Leave the internet alone. It’s fine just the way it is. We live in a society that encourages freedom, the internet should always remain free.

The day that I am unable to find or view information that I choose is the day fredom truly dies. I really hope that my Internet provider never limits bandwidth or any other free services for that matter, but with the push for High Definition everything file sizes are going to be immense and this will limit internet usage very quickly.
