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. This time we look at cycling, Barbie, Milky Way photos, dSLR upgrades, the Bagsmart camera bag, HP in court and buying a used Mac.

  • Steven Bloor presents some unusual images from the Cycling World Championships in Scotland.
  • In Barbiecore Is Litmus Test in Post-Roe America, Leslie A. Hahner riffs on a photo of Margot Robbie as Barbie by Ethan James Green for British Vogue Magazine. "The image is a spoof on the opening of the new Barbie film, a Mattel doll take on Kubrick's dawn of man," she writes. "It's also meant to highlight that Barbie has entered a new era. She is no longer bound by the gravity of earth; she is exploring new vistas."
  • Jasenka Grujin showcases New Milky Way Photos That Will Blow Your Mind.
  • In What's a DSLR User to Do?, Thom Hogan has a little advice for the owner who updates camera gear every decade. Maybe not switch to mirrorless. "You can find lots of low mileage, excellent shape, EF-mount and particularly Nikon F-mount lenses available and at astonishingly low prices," he writes.
  • The $35 Bagsmart Camera Bag has a main compartment for a dSLR with an attached lens plus up to two additional lenses and both front and back pockets for accessories. Crafted in water-resistant canvas, this affordable bag includes a raincoat for unexpected weather.
  • Brandon Vigliarolo reports Judge Denies HP's Plea to Throw Out All-in-One Printer Lockdown Lawsuit after an ammeded complaint was filed in a northern California court.
  • In How to Buy a Used Mac, Howard Oakley list five issues to consider. "My one and only golden rule is never to buy a used Mac without first seeing it in the flesh," he writes.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
