IS COIN THE BRIDGE BETWEEN CONVENTIONAL PAYMENT METHODS AND INEVITABLE SMARTPHONE DOMINATED MARKET

What is Coin? Well the easiest way to explain is through this short video – check it out:

Redesigning the way people pay for products is an extremely complicated process. For example, switching over to smart phone payments requires every store you shop at regularly to change their POS system to support smart phone and/or NFC payments. These systems can be very expensive and without every store using one it is useless to the average consumer. It seems both sides are at a standstill – consumers are waiting for all their stores to support smartphone payments and stores are waiting until all their customers demand the technology. Someone will have to give in eventually… Wait, here is Coin. A solution to a crowded wallet and a tech savvy device that works with existing infrastructure! Coin has seem to find a perfect middle ground to strive in while the rest of the payment market decides when smartphone payments will dominate.

THE GREATEST TIME LAPSE FOOTAGE YOU WILL SEE TOADY

Check out this amazing compilation of time lapse footage from Shane Black

Adventure Is Calling from Shane Black on Vimeo.

 

This summer, two friends and myself all left our comfortable jobs of six years to spend two months traveling across the country and teaching photography workshops along the way. We all felt that it was time to take a risk and get out of our comfort zones… adventure was calling us. It was a trip filled with endless hours cooped up in a van, exploring breathtaking landscapes, sharing stories and laughs, meeting some of the nicest people, making new friends, getting to meet old friends from around the country, and sharing our love of photography with others.

This trip was a constant test for me, as we had such short and limited time in nearly all of the spots we visited. In most cases, I’d have to hurry out of the van with all of my gear and find a decent composition in a very short amount of time as soon as we would arrive at the location. It was a constant race against the light.

During those 2 months, we traveled across 32 states , visited 13 national and state parks, and drove nearly 13,000 miles in a (somewhat) trusty old Dodge Caravan… with no cruise control. It was an adventure that gave us many memories that we will all hold onto for many years to come. I think that everybody needs to take a trip and have their eyes opened to just how beautiful this world is and how much is really out there.

A big thanks to Coca-Cola and Flickr for helping to sponsor our trip. Thanks also to everyone else that donated, attended our workshops, and gave us places to stay!

GOPRO USER INNOVATION

Though I’m sure he isn’t the first, this is an awesome video showing the creativity behind an everyday GoPro user Marc Donahue. This device called “the array” is extremely unique (and expensive). Taking simultaneous shots from multiple cameras in this fashion provides us with awesome footage. Can’t wait to see this device catch on to more users and see what they have to offer!
