    I've slept for 8 hours and went for an one hour run this morning. That means I feel very well today and suddenly science is fun again!

    I don't think there are too many corpses in tunnels around here. Maybe I have just watched too many TV shows, yesterday the Halloween special of Simpsons. Could that be the reason?
    Maybe it's time to give those crime shows a rest? :P

    As for the Simpsons Halloween special, those are always a hoot. Halloween wasn't that big in Australia but it was gaining traction over the years I was there. I guess people have this overwhelming desire to spend ridiculous amounts of money on a one time use costume and see their kids dressed up as the latest TV show/cartoon character. That a buying the 'treats'. Like there isn't enough commercial holidays already. LOL!

    Let's not forget what Halloween is all about of course... though I bet most people are clueless to it's origins. Sigh. OK </grumpiness rant over>

    I think it was something about stealing the Indians all their food or something. I have no idea, it's not part of my culture. However also in Switzerland it is increasingly popular in recent years, I don't like this at all, for the reasons you've already mentioned.

    And regarding the crime shows, I think it's natural to find a tunnel in entire darkness slightly creepy. Someone else's mind would have made something different out of this primal "fear". At least a corpse is usually pretty harmless, as long as there is no Bacillus anthracis in it...

    Morning all - just noticed those pictures I posted last night look rubbish compared to the hi-res ones. Also found out that having a camera with a lot of settings to fiddle with at a gig isn't very practical - ended up just taking a few auto shots. Video and sound reproduction on the 1020 is great though even from the top tier at the back of the arena.

    Yikes!

    Well, what the hell is with that Samsung Galaxy Round? Of course it's only in Korea. I wonder if we could create a thread full of the weird ventures of Samsung.

    Pictures weren't that bad. It's hard to get good night shots in general so even for low res that was good. I haven't tried the new Pro Cam on night shots yet so I'm curious to see if I'll get better shots than before.

    I'm still fiddling around with all the options. Way too many. Still fun to play with though. :P

    You'll notice that Montsa007 bolded some of your sentence in red and that's all they saw, in their 'humourous' mind. Aparently they don't know where Samsung is located....

    Well heres a link to a high res

    They weren't bad considering they were handheld shots - wasn't using the camera grip or the tripod. Might have to experiment a bit more using both so the camera is really steady.

    Yeah our animal insticts still get the best of us. It's only natural. That's why all those reality TV ghost shows are so popular. People going around in the dark trying to listen to bumps and noises.

    I'll have to look at them later. My work blocks anything cloud/social media.

    If you're trying to take over something you're supposed to keep it secret. You know meetings in coffee shops, warehouse, etc.

    I have not too much experience in taking things over. Usually it was enough to lick my brothers piece of pie to get it. But his revenge always made me think twice about it.

    Samsung's curved smartphone is the Galaxy Round, launches in Korea tomorrow (video)

    So it's a Galaxy Note with a worse battery for a much increased price, and all of that only that it fits better into your pocket and you're the cool kid with the fancy phone?

    Well, that could work.

    Well, for years now they sell exactly the same devices with slightly increased hardware in them. And they are selling them well. Of course they can do stuff like this, they should have quite some money to spend ;-)

    Apple's situation is similar, but they are to conservative and boring to do something like this. They were already amazed by the fact that they can sell phones with colors.
