What? Batteries No Bigger Than a Grain of Sand?

Batteries in electronic devices are getting smaller and smaller. Are you ready for a battery that’s the size of a grain of sand? With the continued miniaturi…

This was taken on the northwest corner of Columbus Ave and 72nd Street. I don’t know where the woman was coming from, but the blue thingy on the left appears to be a dog-bed of some kind. I watched her carry it into a pet store around the corner on 72nd Street…

Note: apparently because of the dog-like connection suggested in the comment above, this photo was published as part of an illustration for a Jul 2009 Squidoo blog titled "Your Pets: Do You Breed, Neuter or Neither?"

This is the continuation of a photo-project that I began in the summer of 2008: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan — between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

As I indicated when I started this project in 2008, I don’t like to intrude on people’s privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they’re still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what’s right in front of me.

I’ve also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting — literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I’ve learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture … after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it’s pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject.

Thus far, I’ve generally avoided photographing bums, drunks, crazies, and homeless people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don’t want to be photographed, and I don’t want to feel like I’m taking advantage of them. I’m still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We’ll see how it goes …

The only other thing I’ve noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, far more people who are not so interesting. They’re probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I’ve photographed … but there was just nothing memorable about them.

I’m so cool that I can’t possibly be seen with my dorky mother and younger brother

This was taken on the southeast corner of Broadway & 82nd Street, looking toward the "Liberty Travel" shop on the far corner.

When I first moved into this area some 25 years ago, I lived about two blocks west of this spot…

Example of how B&W brings out details otherwise lost in color hues. Usually see this in low light and extreme contrasts.

(I’d probably have helped, too, if I’d remembered to reset the camera’s white balance before shooting these.)

This is what I woke up to at 2:30 am. Well, not exactly… What I really woke up to was my wife running around yelling "Dennis’ barn is burning down!" The sound of the roof collapsing probably woke her. I have a later shot that shows a propane tank exploding, but it’s pretty blurred.

As seen from the window next to my computer in our dining room about 10 minutes after wife woke me up (and after I got off the phone with 911) when I woke up enough to realize I have 2 cameras sitting next to me on the desk!

Forgot to change settings though… it was set for WB=cloudy from earlier on Saturday’s walk. Actually, the battery and CF card were both out of camera so I had to reload everything before I could take this shot. Camera’s clock is an hour off for some reason.

It’s pretty obvious the fire started in back corner (left), near the wood burner stove/heater.

Here’s a short BDN article on the fire – http://www.beloitdailynews.com/articles/2008/02/04/news/news06.txt

Indian 35 $ Tablet – better than IPAD

India has developed a 35-dollar touch-screen laptop, touted as the world’s cheapest, under a programme to provide connectivity to students in schools and universities The laptop unveiled by the country’s Human Resources Development Minister Kapil Sibal is described by the government as a ‘low-cost computing and internet-access device.’ Sibal said his ministry had initiated talks with global companies about its manufacture and hoped to bring down the price to 10 dollars after the device was mass produced. ‘India had developed another low-cost computing device last year but it cost about 65 dollars. This is a different model … it looks like an Apple iPad,’ Mamta Verma, a ministry spokeswoman, said. The laptop has all the basic features, including a built-in keyboard, 2 GB of RAM memory, Wi-fi connectivity, USB ports and is powered by a 2-watt system for use in power-deficit areas. The seven- and nine-inch (18- and 23-centimetre) Linux-based touchscreen gadget, which can be run on solar-power, in addition to the battery-operated system, is likely to be introduced in higher-education institutions next year. The device was developed by research teams comprising students, professors and experts from the Indian Institute of Technology and the Indian Institute of Sciences. India’s education policy aims at supplying connectivity to colleges and universities, providing low-cost and affordable access and computing devices for students and teachers and offering high-quality e

More Than What You Think Of A Laptop Battery

How laptop batteries interrelate with the computer to function properly absolutely is a lengthy process as well as manufacturing alone a laptop battery is even worst long indeed. Laptop companies are also working continuously to improve and develop such functions of laptop battery technology.

The procedures used to bring in about laptop batteries involves a system of tests and re-tests to guarantee safety and consistency. There are an amount of components besides the battery that makes it work. There are safety fuses, breakers, thermistor, and charge electronics which all aids and gives support in the functionality of laptop batteries which you can magnificently seen inside the casing. The battery pack casing is welded together in a detailed method and is then sent on for final check up. Different tests are documented for form, fit and function during final inspection. Once the battery passes the test, it is now labeled with a lot and date code.

The thermistor controls the resistance of the battery and informs the computer to stop charging when the battery heats up as it completes charging. Moreover, the circuit breaker facilitates and helps protect against danger and hazards caused by over charging and short circuits.

Laptop batteries are built with the finest quality battery components that can be found for suitability. Battery cells are ensured to yield the highest capacity and safety qualifications, whether the battery cell is NiHM, or Li-Ion. Some batteries are even equipped with their own microprocessor that communicates important charge information to the computer. Sequential knowledge about laptop batteries certainly helps you a lot for a more effective, efficient, and comfortable usage of your laptop. Now you won’t just see simple and non-refundable box-shaped thing when choosing a laptop battery, but rather a “tiny-tony” that helps your laptop to run reliably and effectively.

Absolutely laptop batteries are the most complicated and regulated of all rechargeable batteries, but one thing’s for sure, they are the most important battery in the field of rechargeable batteries!
