Wireless carriers love to offer seasonal deals for the holidays, and Thanksgiving is definitely one of them. Just like last year, Verizon Wireless is offering its “Thanksgetting” Connection Day deals for travelers on their way to celebrate. These deals are good through Wednesday, November 25.
A world’s first for rocket technology occurred this week. Blue Origin, Jeff Bezos’ (Amazon.com’s CEO) commercial rocket tourism company, just completed its first successful test launching and landing its New Shepard rocket after a 100 km flight into the atmosphere. A brilliant three-minute video was just uploaded onto Blue Origin’s YouTube documenting the entire feat. The rocket launch occurred in West Texas on Monday.
In these digital days, film is making a comeback, and it’s taking multiple forms. From Fujifilm’s Instax lineup (Fuji Instax Mini and Wide), to Impossible Project’s offering for Polaroid cameras, to Kodak shaking off bankruptcy by cleverly branching off and creating Kodak Alaris, to Lomography starting with a cheap Russian camera and creating a booming business serving today’s photographers looking for something different.
Film influences today’s cameras one way or another. Nikon’s design for the Nikon DF came from their 35mm FM series cameras, the entire design for the Olympus Pen mirrorless series from their 35mm rangefinder cameras, and even the Fuji X series camera line is entirely funded by profits procured from Fuji’s Instax film sales profits.
