Flip the tool around quickly for another size tool to adjust a different fa...

Samsung’s dual-screen folding phone is very strange and probably doomed

Let me just say that I love the idea of a folding phone/tablet device. I was a Courier fanboy when Microsoft floated that intriguing but abortive concept device, and I’m all for unique form factors and things that bend. is inexplicable and probably dead on arrival. I’d like to congratulate the company for trying something new, but this one needed a little more time in the oven. I haven’t used it, of course, so this is just my uninformed opinion (provided for your edification). But this device ...

Photographer turns nature photos into immersive rooms to explore

To exhibit his photography at large scale, Chris Engman builds rooms with interiors wrapped with his stunning photos of forests, deserts, and other landscapes. They beckon the viewer inside where, of course, the perspectives warp and shift.

If You Want To Live Stream, Twitch Dwarfs YouTube [CHART]

While longform live streaming on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram is on the rise, their audience is still dwarfed by Twitch. While thought of as a gaming and esports platform, a lot more happens or could happen there. Savvy musicians like Drake have already experimented with the platform by playing a top gamer live, but that just scratches the surface of how the Amazon owned platform could be used to connect with fans.  via [Author: Bruce Houghton]

An Open Letter to Panasonic

Dear Panasonic, I know you're busy. You're readying your first full-frame mirrorless camera for market. That can't be easy, since Sony, Nikon, and Canon are already in that "space."

Instagram’s rumored School Stories could be cool — with rigorous moderation

Word on the street is that Instagram is testing a new, collaborative kind of Story — specifically, a kind which would be used within schools. While it’s in no way confirmed the app will ever have this feature, it could turn out to be a positive thing for students, if done properly. Tipster Jane Manchun Wong was, as usual, the first person to spot the new feature, and was also the one to point out the accompanying code, which reads “School stories are manually reviewed to make sure the community ...

Flickr says it won’t delete Creative Commons photos

Flickr will spare both the Flickr Commons and Creative Commons photos from deletion, the now SmugMug-owned company announced today. However, its new storage limitations on free accounts may impact its use as a home for photos with a Creative Commons license in the future.

Another Excess: Photos Exploring Queer Life & Hedonism in Berlin

Spyros Rennt’s intimate and voyeuristic images archive an excessive queer reality. He flashes his very personal light on brief moments in between Berlin dance floors and bedrooms, on silly fucks, hard dicks, and cold fries.
