[ale] Life on the Other Side



oh heck, while we are having a pillow fight....

I'm doing a talk later this week about evolution of basic consumer
cameras from 1920 to date. 

Who was the genius at Apple and Google that collectively decided that
smartphones will NOT HAVE: 

        - a tripod bushing to fit a standard tripod and every other
        similar device made since.... dirt.  like every other camera I
        have ever owned or collected. 
        - a shutter button you can find.
        - a eyelet for a wrist-strap to avoid dropping the darn thing
        over a cliff while groping for the non-existent shutter button.
        - some kind of little ridge for your fingers to help grip the
        darn thing, like every other camera I have used in the last 20
        years. 
        

one has to wonder if these morons even spent 30 minutes at a camera
store before deciding how to make a smartphone. 

regards as always.
