In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Om Malik, Pixel Peeper, Bouquets to Art and how to calibrate a laptop battery.

  • In In the Future, We Will Photograph Everything and Look at Nothing, Om Malik divines the cultural meaning behind Google releasing the Nik Collection into the wild. Maybe it explains why you can sort your Google albums by date but not by file name.
  • Rafael Zwiegincew's Pixel Peeper is "a service that allows you to pixel-peep (at 100 percent of the original size for given camera) at thousands of full-size photos in our database."
  • Just a warning. The de Young museum is in bloom again with Bouquets to Art through Sunday. There is a photo-free period on Friday from 9:30 until noon for the true aficionado. The rest of us can review our previous coverage.
  • NewerTech reveals How To Calibrate a Mac Laptop's Power System "to achieve its fullest charge and reach its full lifespan." Seems like it would help any laptop's battery. Or tablet. Or phone even. They're all the same tech.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
