The Luminous Landscape: Sony A7 MKII Hands On.

No Virginia, there is no 4K video. My guess is that this is being reserved for the anticipated A9 model due some time in early 2015 – at least according to the rumour mill.” That’s going to put a damper on sales ... a ‘better’ A9 model?

The Verge: Adobe’s got Photoshop running in Chrome.

Yeah, but don’t get all excited: “The application is downloaded via the Chrome Web Store, and when you open it up you’re actually connecting to a server which is running the desktop version of Photoshop CC 2014. The UI of the desktop version is captured as a video and sent to your browser, where javascript relays your actions back to the server, completing the interactive loop.” Better have a fast hookup; delays in UI get up my nose.

the interpreter: ISIS beheadings are a grotesque media strategy

None of these actions are designed to dissuade Western military intervention in Iraq or Syria, or even to goad the West into becoming decisively committed on the ground, because ISIS understands this is unlikely to occur. Rather, it has a much more short-term aim: to get ISIS’s military and political setbacks out of the media cycle and replace them with bloody imagery that demonstrates ISIS is still a force.” It is very unsettling to see social media and personal branding strategies used for these purposes.

EOSHD: Apple kill third party SSD support in Yosemite.

The problem is down to Apple having introduced a new ‘security feature’ in Yosemite. Only kext drivers for official Apple SSDs are supported. Built in drives that Apple themselves use in your Macbook Pro Retina and some iMacs will upgrade just fine to Yosemite but if you have installed a third party SSD or more commonly are running off an external one, you’re out of luck.”  Beware, beware.
