At the southeastern corner of Broadway and 95th Street, there is an AT&T phone store. You can tell from the poster in this picture that they (like most other AT&T stores) are promoting the new iPhone3G — and as it turns out, this is the store where I ordered my new iPhone, since I was unwilling to wait in line for hours at the Apple store (see "waiting in line for iPhone 3g" album to see what that was all about).

Anyway, I saw this woman with the orange "staff" shirt, and drew the logical conclusion that she was a sales rep at the AT&T store. I have no idea what she was saying to her companion, but she was quite animated as the two of them walked up 95th Street towards Amsterdam Avenue.

This is part of an evolving photo-project, which will probably continue throughout the summer of 2008, and perhaps beyond: 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.

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.

For the most part, I’ve deliberately avoided photographing bums, drunks, drunks, and crazy 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.

Thanks for reading the paper to me, but you don’t have to read the advertisements…

This was taken in Verdi Square once again, as I was walking back home at the end of the afternoon. The elderly woman appeared to be sitting with a caretaker, and the younger woman was very definitely reading the newspaper aloud to her companion…

Note: this photo was published in a May 15, 2009 blog titled "The In-Home Care Dilemma: Realizing You Need It, Figuring Out How to Afford It." And a highly cropped version of this photo was published in an undated (Nov 2009) blog titled "NuovaFides Minerva." It was also published in a Nov 1, 2010 blog titled "Can Care Credits Work?" And it was published in a Sep 9, 2011 Ms. Magazine blog, titled "The Case Crisis."

Moving into 2012, the photo was published in an undated (mid-Mar 2012) blog titled "The Primary Caretaker: The Delicate Balance of Taking Care of Another and Yourself."

With the world going increasingly mobile and relying more than ever on battery life to get work done on the road, it’s imperative this problem get solved soon.

I generally don’t like the word “regulation,” but there are times when it’s the only solution.

Without rules and enforcement of those rules, we’ve seen what can happen when a profits-at-all-costs mentality sets in without oversight. I realize we’re not talking national security here, but I’m sure I’m not the only one bothered by this discrepancy.TOSHIBA PA3383U-1BRS Battery TOSHIBA PA3384U-1BRS Battery TOSHIBA PA3465U-1BRS Battery Toshiba PA2487UR battery

Looking for batteries for laptops is simple for those who check around a little and also fully understand what precisely you are looking for are sure to find a bargain. Check these laptop battery buying tips first.

The initial step to finding cheap batteries for laptop computers will be to know the precise make and model of your laptop PC, as you will need this data to be certain you buy the right model. There could be a range of variations of battery packs for your PC with each one supplying assorted levels of battery life, as I describe below.

There’s 2 predominant types of battery for laptop computers that are generally for sale for all leading models of notebook computers. The two predominant kinds are…

Ni-MH – Otherwise know as Nickel Metal Hydride these are the battery types used for computers built a couple of years ago. You can still find these kinds of battery utilized widely today and the only real downside of most of these types are that they need a regular complete discharge and recharge. This will make sure they continue to function more effectively. Because of this, if they are not properly cared for, battery power lifetime might diminish rapidly.

Lion- Lithium Ion batteries are now the most popular of the modern day laptop computers. They are much less heavy in comparison to the other designs of battery pack and more importantly they will keep going much longer and don’t suffer the recharging problems connected with Nickel battery packs.

Bear in mind that a few of the very old Laptop models make use of Ni-Cad batteries, but these are not in reality available to purchase anymore due to the rather hefty weight and lousy performance. If someone recommends these It is best to ignore them and not to buy these products, particularly if they are second hand.Toshiba A100 Battery Toshiba Satellite A105 battery Toshiba A70 battery PA3062U-1BAT battery

Next you need to realize the batteries for laptop computers come with a varying quantity of battery cell counts. Generally having extra power cells in the battery will usually imply you’ll receive an extended battery life. For instance, a new 9 power cell battery pack will have about fifty percent more power usage capacity over a like-for-like six cell batteryToshiba Satellite P30 battery Toshiba PA3084U-1BRS battery Toshiba PA3098U battery

They will tell you that, yes, of course you can get 10 hours; all you need to do is switch of Bluetooth (check!), limit or turn off wi-fi (check, but this one kind of hurts!), dim the screen or better yet turn it off (check, sort of!), and try not to do much with the laptop that might strain the processor like watch a video (okay, solitaire here I come!).

Even better: switch it off, it’ll last even longer.

So, what’s the point of battery ratings if they don’t represent reality?

What’s needed is an accurate standard that consumer’s can trust when comparing battery life across various manufacturers. For all I know such a standard does exist. But if it does, and I can’t find any evidence of such a regulation, then it’s poorly implemented and certainly not enforced.

Imagine you buy a Prius expecting over 40mpg, but end up getting only 25mpg?
