Imaging startup Light is exiting the smartphone business

Light’s push into smartphones was an inevitability. Sure, the startup turned heads with its pricey L16 camera, but these days mobile photography is almost exclusively the domain of the handset. Early last year, the answer arrived in the form of the trypophobia-inducing Nokia 9 PureView. In a category where manufacturers raced to add more cameras,   the PureView had the most, with a five-hexagonal array. It was new, innovative and for most, it was overkill. At the very least, however, it gave...

How to upgrade your at-home videoconference setup: Lighting edition

In this instalment of our ongoing series around making the most of your at-home video setup, we’re going to focus on one of the most important, but least well understood or implemented parts of the equation: Lighting. While it isn’t actually something that requires a lot of training, expertise or even equipment to get right, it’s probably the number one culprit for subpar video quality on most conference calls – and it can mean the difference between looking like someone who knows what they talk...

7 businesses tell us how they have turned to Zoom and FaceTime to host virtual yoga classes, cooking lessons, and wedding planning. Some are just scraping by, while others are bringing in more revenue than ever before. (ZM)

The coronavirus outbreak has hit many US businesses hard — one survey found that 75% of small businesses saw fewer sales in March.  It's especially difficult for businesses that rely on face-to-face interactions, like bars and salons, or companies that host in-person classes like yoga studios and cooking schools.  Business Insider talked to seven entrepreneurs who are trying to get some of their revenue back through virtual services on Zoom and FaceTime.  Click here for more BI Prime content. ...

Free the Self With Unity

Whatever you see lives inside of you. If you see something, then it is your perception. If you go inside and deal with that perception, then it can be cleansed and erased and given DIVINE LIGHT. The biology of cells holds memories but is influenced by the mind. Free the mind and free the self for the LIGHT. Thus, freedom is what you give yourself and thus to others. If we do this, then we are all in right relationships as a family of humankind walking planet earth. Youth are the doorway to the e...

Reflection for the Solemnity of the Presentation of the Lord 2020

When the days were completed for their purification according to the law of Moses, Mary and Joseph took Jesus up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord. This is the Sixth and final Sunday after Christmas.  We have reflected over these weeks on the way Jesus had made Himself known to the world: To the Jewish people; To the poor and humble; To the world; and In His call to the disciples. In these weeks we have covered thirty years of Jesus’ time on earth. Today, we take a step back.  ...

Autumn Light

As the days get shorter and shorter, the light seems especially brilliant, especially after a rain. I also get to see sunsets as I’m out and about as they now occur so early. In the summer here in Paris, the sunsets are really late and I’m almost always home then being such a party animal. We took a walk near our place shortly after a rain and everything was glistening. The sun on the Seine. Even the sidewalks look good. Leaves on steps, everywhere really. The G...
