What to Fight Over After Megapixels?

CallFinalClass Re:The next number to fight over: Dynamic Range (596 comments)

I'm out of mod points, so I can't help there, but damn straight, get the dynamic range up there.

Right now, cameras can't get even close to the mark 1 eyeball where dynamic range is concerned.

I'll raise you on the wikipedia entry:

Yes, there are people "abusing" the HDR process and producing things that "just don't look right" to many people, but done right, it's awesome.

This should be in the camera, not in post-processing SW.

Athletes' Brains Reveal Concussion Damage

CallFinalClass Poorly Titled (328 comments)

This is about FOOTBALL (American) players, not all athletes.

Only a small subset of athletes get their bells rung on a regular basis.

Crikey already.

Senate Hearing On Laptop Seizures At US Border

What you experienced was not what you apparently think it was.

Most likely, your boarding pass didn't register correctly when you got on the plane. As always, the flight crew does a head count to match against then number of people that presented boarding passes. Let's say they counted 100 butts in the seats, but only 99 boarding passes registered in the system. No hard task to figure out that you - REGARDLESS of your name or ethnicity - were the odd man out. Since you self-identified, no need to see your boarding pass. The crew was probably pissed off in general because getting the count right is of course mandatory.

Or, they could have been looking to offer you an upgrade to a better class. If you were travelling with someone, they'd not offer it as they wouldn't want to break you up.

Both have happened to me quite frequently, and I've seen it happen to others frequently.

So, quit your fucking goddamn whinging. Jesus. Fucking. Christ.
