Monday Morning News

Bose Quiet Comfort

It’s early Monday morning for me and that means start of a new week, here are a bunch of news tidbits to get started:

  • Jeffrey Friedl has launched a new Lightroom 2 plugin called Lighroom "GPS Proximity Search". It takes the GPS coordinates of an image and matches it up with other images from the same location (based on the coordinates). For it to work, you need to have GPS coordinates stores with your images inside of Lightroom.
     
  • Over at CSS-Tricks there is a truly awesome post which deals with getting started and learning CSS. It’s a question I myself get asked so many times but really can’t provide a really good answer to. Now there is your link from now on!
     
  • A Swedish blogger who runs a site called Moderskeppet, posted today about a great accessory if you are travelling a lot, so I thought I’d share it here as well. It’s really silent headphones. They are called Bose Quiet Comfort 3 and what they’ll do is they close out a great deal of noise. Say you are sitting near the engines of a plane when travelling a long distance. If you were using general headphones, you’d be cranking your volume up way high, but with these, all you get is a mind humming sound by just putting them on, that’s drained with light music! Pretty cool if you are doing frequent travelling.
     
  • Finally I’m going to send you to David DuChemins latest blog post about experiences with people who aren’t as fortunate as we are, meaning they don’t have it as nice as we have here. Just read the post and let it soak it, and maybe do something about it ;)

  1. I actually listened to these in the store of an US Retailer while someone was cranking the TV in home video and someone else was doing the same in car audio. Suffice to say, there was a lot of noise to drain out and the cancellation features of the Bose Quiet Comforts was sufficiently impressive. I also would give these two thumbs up. If I were a serious traveler at all, I would upgrade my headphones to the Bose setup in a heartbeat – expensive, but you can tell they are worth every penny!
