Take better cameraphone shots

One of the reasons I chose Nokia is their incredible camera optics — at least for a phone. My N900 has a 5-megapixel shooter and I find that a majority of my memory-capturing is viewed online. In fact, I may have printed a half-dozen photos of the many thousand I’ve shot. So it’s no wonder I shoot more with my phone than with my cam.

As such, Lifehacker posted some tips for like-minded folks out there.

Keeping warm, carrying on in Wicker Park

I have been seeing adaptations of the “Keep calm and carry on” posters all over the city. According to Wikipedia, these were never produced. Instead their resurgence has been as recent as 10 years ago.

It seems a fitting mantra for me as a Buddhist and for everyone these increasingly unpredictable times. I admire its message but also the timelessness of the design and the typography. A quick search on the Interwebs reveals that P22’s Underground Pro is the closest font. Gorgeous.

Now that’s social media

Probably not what the advertiser had intended but this is hilarious and… Real. And in that I mean not virtually friended.

The sweet spot

I have finally gotten the Nokia N900 and, yes, it’s not an iPhone. And that’s a good thing. It is unlocked and gorgeous. It will take some getting used to but it’s definitely wonderful to be on the bus with a full-on computer in my hands.

And, by the way, this was completely done with this wee beastie, from photo to post. Nice.

Sticking with last years’ model? Maybe not

I don’t know if I can do this wholeheartedly, but I am going to try after finally deciding to break down and get the new phone. E definitely thinks I should… What’s your story?
