A Perfect Winter Night - Vancouver, Pre-Olympics

It was a perfect clear night to snap some photos. Walked along Burrard, all the way down to Yaletown then around English Bay and back. I had my personal reservations on the whole 2010 Olympics buzz, but after seeing how it is all coming together, I do hope for it's success. (Shot in manual mode with a Panasonic Lumix LX3).

Apple iPad - Just released today!

First impressions:
  • A blown up iPod Touch, geared more for casual users who is looking for something between a Macbook and an iPhone/iTouch.
  • Should have came with a camera for video conferencing, iChat/Skype calls. This will most likely come out with the second generation iPad
  • iPad sounds too much like iPod.
  • Screen looks awesome as usual
  • I will most likely pass on this one and wait for the second generation

World's Most Expensive Earphones - Ultimate Ears

If you have the money to burn and want the best earphones ever created, it will cost you about ten times more the cost of your iPod. A company called Ultimate Ears, a division of Logitech has released the Ultimate Ears 18 Pro Custom Monitors ($1150US) that promises to deliver a six-speaker system that fits in an earphone casing. It includes new technologies like a new cable built for durability and reduced distortion, three acoustically tuned sound channels, and multiple passive crossover points creating the ultimate in separation, detail, and clarity.

The earphones can be ordered in a variety of colors and can even be customized with artwork, which I'm sure will add to the total cost. Here are some examples of what celebrities have ordered:

Brian Vollmer of Helix

LeBron James - Cleveland Cavaliers

Paula Abdul

Kobe Bryant - LA Lakers

Nikki Sixx - Motley Crue
