FinePix X100: Samples Analysed
这两天晚上都在整理 X100 入手之后拍的样片,花了点时间做了个简单的站来展现这些样片以及部分 100% 尺寸 crop 的局部细节,最后成果在这里:Fuji X100 Samples,一些简单说明如下: 所有照片都只用 Camera RAW 进行处理,曝光和白平衡基本取缺省,没有进行任何锐化、降噪等后期处理(正常情况是要的)。 每张照片包含一个缩小到 640x425 的 JPEG 图片和若干局部 100% crop 出来的 PNG 图片,鼠标移动到照片上会出现可点击的区域,点击即可查看该区域的原始尺寸版本。 这只是为了从某种程度检查 X100...

iPhone 4 Apps S2

距离上次分享我的 iPhone 应用已经3个多月了,现在正式推出第二季,其实变化不大,但还是更新下,同时换个介绍方式,尽量我也省事读者也舒服。简单说,就是每页、每个 Folder 都展开截图,然后每个应用简要介绍(内置应用略过),App Store 链接就不放了,因为我的朋友里美国店、日本店、香港店、大陆店用户都有,大家自己用应用名字去搜索好了。照例,所有图片点击可以放大。

Clojure 是下一个二十年的编程语言,在睿智的 Rich Hickey 撮合下 LISP 和 Java 技术完美结合的产物,兼具函数编程和 Java 平台的优势,聚焦于低错和易用的并发编程,同时足以完成一个通用编程语言的各种任务。虽然早就关注 Clojure,也断断续续的玩过,不过最近开始准备花多一点时间在这上面,如果可能还想翻译或者写本书。不过这次只记录下怎么搭建和维护一个 Mac OS X 下的 Clojure 学习环境(还不能叫工作环境)。

USA Tour 2010 Autumn

月初去美国出差,回来已经半个月了,一直没时间整理,这个周末终于有点时间可以干这事儿了。 此次行程3日从上海出发,3-11日在美国三个城市(德州的奥斯汀、华盛顿州的西雅图、俄勒冈州的波特兰)分别造访了Dell、Microsoft、Intel等云计算基础服务公司进行考察和研讨,12日启程返回,13日晚回到上海,离家11天,但在美国的时间其实只有9天,所以还是挺赶的。技术相关的报告是不能发这儿的,所以下面就伴着一路上的影像记下一些有意思的经历和感想吧。 顺便说下,这里全部的照片(两张集体合影除外)都是用我的 iPhone 4 拍摄的,用的软件是内置的 Camera 和 Pro HDR,在电脑上只做了降噪和 Resize 处理,对于光照良好的风景片来说,iPhone 已经足够用了。

My Life for Aiur!

假期回到广州家中,收到宝物若干,当然重头戏是终于拿到的 Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty 典藏版,特此发帖炫耀。

iPhone 4 Apps S1

使用 iPhone 4 已一个多月,升级到 iOS 4.1 后常用软件也基本稳定,是时候展示下 Spring Board 了(有更新)。

A Tale of Two Cities

转眼来到上海已经2周——虽然10多年前在这里度过了美好的大学生活,但是毕竟那时候和现在不怎么可比——决定把我的感想稍微的记录一下。上海和广州都是中国顶尖的大城市,经常被人看作截然不同的风格代表,其实我觉得很多地方是差不多的,不过既然写感想,一些对比就少不了,下面蓝字标出的是我认为上海更让人喜欢的方面,红字则相反,纯粹个人感受,除了我自己谁也不代表,如有雷同纯属巧合。还有,有些事我可能了解信息有限,如有错误欢迎拍砖。

北海道游记:杂记

前篇:第一天 | 第二天 | 第三天 前面说过,北海道就是一大农村,但是是很干净很漂亮的农村,一路上笔直的公路,两侧整齐的农田,随处可见的花草和蓝天白云,就像在「非诚勿扰」影片中给人留下深刻印象的笔直、起伏、无车的公路。。。这里就把这些不是景点的景点展现一下。
