I don't like shantungs because they look unfinished. I know,that's probably the point. But to me it is like this sentence, it just feels

Embrace the wabi sabi mentality my friend.

@@The Noodles I don't see a black grenadine tie.
Um...I would do a midnight navy but I gave my black tie away. I have been brainwashed into thinking all blacks are bad.

Apple is dropping both iPhoto and Aperture and replacing them with a new app "Photo" which will store images in iCloud.

 

If you add up all my iPhoto and Aperture libraries, I've got something like 100GB of image data. As if Apple will give me that much storage space. Who knows, they might even make it "free" at the start, then no doubt, once all my stuff is safely tucked away in their Cupertino servers and I've gotten lazy and stopped backing it up elsewhere, they will start charging me a heap for it.

 

Not only that. Every time I open my cloud-based image database and start manipulating it, surely I'm going to be chewing through a shitload of data transfer. Fine if I'm at home with unlimited fast internet. But what about when I'm travelling, linked in via some painfully slow hotel data plan, or in China where access to American servers is often blocked or flaky, or simply in a place where I can't get online?

 

Couple of questions for the cognoscenti:

 

1. Does anyone know whether Apple Photo will allow the option of not storing images in the cloud?

 

2. What is the smart money doing now? Migrating to Lightroom?

 

Posting here because many of us will surely be affected and I'm hoping some of you may have already thought the implications of this bombshell through.

It seems to me that Noodles doesn't know what he wants, other than "more ties." You can't help a man unsure of his own desires.

Pretty sure that local storage will be an option, although I doubt anyone will know definitely until the application is released. Many will move to Lightroom. It might be worth sticking with Photos for a little while. I suspect that this will be somewhat like iMovie and the iWork suite in which features are lost as part of the initial revamp and then added back.

There will likely be local storage as there has been for iTunes Match. iPhoto has sucked for years. No experience with Aperture. Adobe has moved to a subscription model for its software and fuck that noise.

Noodles, those are really nice what you have, though I think the TF check could be paired better. Please note, I did not say that you are too boring, I said that Id like to see some variation within your boringness. But, you got to be you.

I love shantung, but Im not gonna fight for it, its always been a fabric that has lovers and haters.
post #11725 of 37396

I have already bookmarked 20 ties on sam hober that I want, and I really don't need more ties. :S this discussion is bad for me.

They don't mean to be evil, maybe, but they are: as they don't really invent anything except packaging and slick marketing, they can only keep you by locking you into Apple World.  I prefer the promiscuity of my PC, though even my Windows Phone is starting to ask me to store some files in the "cloud" i.e. "give it to The Man".

 

Anyway, yeah.  I would hope you'll still have a local storage option, but there's a reason Apple don't put removable memory cards in their phones and computers, or allow them to act as simple external drives: if they have all your data, you can never leave....

Yes you can: simply impose your own preferences upon his malleable brain.  I am entirely confident that this will be helpful.

Noodles, you need some texture. Get wool and cashmere ties for winter, and linen and shantung for summer.
post #11728 of 37396
Shatungs, in my environment, is more of a distraction as people ask me what is wrong with the tie.

@in stitches
I was being very self-critical. Not saying you said anything negative.

anyone following the  Pistorius brouhaha? - sorry for the derail, but this is priceless

I often wake up in the middle of the night and hear someone in my bathroom. My first reaction is to go get my gun and empty the magazine through the door to neutralize the threat. Toilet paper theft is a hug problem in America and the liberal media refuses to cover it.

Plus 1 to MF. Some wool and cashmere blends would probably be a really nice addition for Noodles this coming fall and winter.
