Website Updates

It seems that no matter what site on the internet that I try to log onto this weekend, all I get is "we are performing maintenance" during this time.

I guess many website owners decided it would be a good weekend to do updates.

I don't remember any other holiday weekends through all the years I have been on the web where so many were being "maintained'.

I am sure it needs to be done, and I guess it is as good a time as any other.

And it does get those of us who are glued to the keyboards a reason to step away.

Hope you all had a great holiday weekend!

Camera Decisions

If you are familiar with one of my other blogs, Photography by KML, then you are aware that my camera goes everywhere I do.

I read mostly about the DSLR cameras that come out and what they have to offer.

I haven't kept up too much with all the different brands, other than the one I shoot with.

They all basically have the same workings, just a few different features depending on the brand.

I stick with the Sony line.

They are the most innovative with technology, and since they bought Minolta out a few years back, they have cornered the market in DSLR's as far as I am concerned.

I have been keeping an eye on the video cameras as well.

Since I shoot stock photography, I would like to try my hand at video clips as well.

Carrying two separate kinds of cameras around is just a bit too much, so I started looking at what was available as a combo unit.

For the last year, Sony has been putting a video mode in select DSLR cameras.

And from what I have read, the videos are really good quality.

So, I have been giving serious thought to one of these new DSLR cameras with the video mode in them.

Just wish they were not so expensive!

New iPad App

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of OgilvyInteractive for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

The more I read about these iPads, the more interesting they become to me.

I still haven't decided which gadget I like the best between the readers and the tablets.

They all have different features, and I just need to take the time to investigate what I would use the most in each one, then find the best deal of course.

One of the best features about the tablets is the ability to use different applications on them.

But not all of them can use the same apps - most of them are developed for a specific device only.

And that's the advantage that the iPad has over most of the others.

There are so many, and one of the newest, called, The Collection, is a must have.

Things happen so quickly around the globe each day, that sometimes it is hard to keep up with it all.

This app is an appazine that is published monthly with all the most important happenings and topics from around the world.

It delivers current events with interactive elements like nothing has done before.

Video, audio, animation, and many other elements come together to deliver first class articles right to our fingertips.

Technology enhances today's current events, and makes for a dynamic reading experience - and it is published simultaneously in English, German, and Chinese.

If you have an iPad, be sure to check it out in the App store.
