The Strange World of Microsoft and Garmin
Thought For The Day…” If we open a quarrel between past and present, then we shall find that we have lost the future” (Churchill).
” Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever” (Walt Disney).
It is a strange world. Microsoft are now announcing details of the next operating system, which, hopefully will be better than the farce that Window 8 was. If you are counting, what comes after 8?? According to Microsoft, it goes 8, then 8.1 then 10, which is the name of their next operating system. What happened to 9? Perhaps the same thing that happens to the missing row number 13 on aircraft. Next strange thing – I have 2 Garmin GPS systems which through the miracles of technology can tell me my position within a few metres. So why is it that when I change locations, the GPS asks ME if I have moved several hundred kilometres. Having bought the thing, should it not be the GPS that tells me that I have moved, not the otherway around. Strange world. Stop the world, I want to get off!!
Today’s photo is of a backpacker and a local boy in Nepal. Lovely candid shot, which is again from a scanned 35mm negative.
And another photo out of the archives….a boy in rural Ethiopia…
