Olympus Announces It’s Getting Out of the Camera Business
It’s been rumored for several months now, but it looks like these rumors were true. Today, Olympus announced that it will be getting out of the consumer camera business and focusing on their other (more profitable) product lines (specifically medical imaging).
I’ve been a longtime fan of Apple’s design ethos and build. From my first Apple computer, the Power Mac G4 Cube, to my current workhorse, a mid-2017 MacBook Pro (no TouchID) I’ve been using Apple products for nearly two decades and have enjoyed them – mostly. With the announcement of the new 13-inch MacBook Pro (2020), we can finally say good riddance to my least favorite Apple design choice – the Butterfly Switch keyboard.
As most of us are about a month deep into social distancings (whether by choice or mandate), but this episode’s guest – Olympus Trailblazer, Jamie MacDonald – shares some of his creative process and how he’s staying sharp as we’re all staying home.
Welcome to the latest installment of The Noisecast. In this episode, Alberto and Paul deal with what we’re all dealing with – life in the time of COVID-19. We talk some tech, like various tech companies trying to fight disinformation online and the importance of social distancing. But more importantly, we’re just trying to make sense of the uncertainty and being an ear for one another.
Also, Alberto loves video games but isn’t too good at them. We’re looking for suggestions on how we can all come together and enjoy some time together as we all stay tf home. Send us your tips and suggestions: noisecast (at) thenoisecast (dot) com
Paul and Alberto are back on the mic and they’ve come to a realization – launching a new product is tough. In this episode, they discuss day-one issues with the Google Stadia and Disney Plus. From issues with connectivity, lack of options, and in Disney’s case – compromised user data it appeared everyone experienced a failure to launch.
Originally recorded in mid-September, this episode was originally a recap of Apple’s iPhone Event but quickly turned to streaming services. It’s like cable! (But, you know, worse.) So while Paul and Alberto gripe about having to subscribe to ten different services to watch a handful of shows, they did manage to talk about all things iPhone and Apple Watch, Google Pixel 4, and the new Fujifilm X-Pro 3.
September typically means back-to-school and new iPhones. And like death and taxes, we can escape Apple’s annual iPhone event. We take a quick look at all that was announced at this year’s Apple iPhone Keynote.
This episode is a little late because life happens, but Paul and Alberto got a chance to talk about John Wick 3 and Paul said farewell to Game of Thrones. Alberto would rather just catch up in meme form, as all adults should.
It’s been two full weeks and some change – here’s our spoiler-filled review/commentary on Avengers: Endgame. We waited 11 years and over 20 movies to get to this point – Alberto and Paul go over why they loved the movie, but more importantly the universe that the MCU was able to cohesively put together. You’ve had more than enough time to prep – Let’s talk Endgame.
