I need to carry my camera with me

I was taking a little break from editing a paper and walked through a park right next to my office. There were some girls waving around a stick on the other side of the park so I walked over that way to find out that they were trying to defend a hurt bunny from a hawk. After a while, they realized it was kind of pointless and wandered off.

Anyway, I need to carry my real camera with me because the camera on the iPhone is shit by comparison.

A hawk waiting for a good taste of rabbit meat.

A few notes: I saw this hawk a couple days ago on my way to lunch, so it apparently lives on the JHU campus. The campus is bordered by a pretty large wild park, so there are lots of birds here. Other than it being a juvenile something or other, I can't identify it. I saw the bunny today on my way back from lunch too. It wasn't doing a lot of moving around at noonish, so I'm guessing that the hawk chose the slow bunny to eat.

(1) What does the soapboxosphere know about the Roku? It's kinda an iTV + Netflix thing, where for $99 you get a box that allows Netflix subscribers access to their entire 'Watch Now' movie database. No extra fees, no computer necessary. My take is that the aaplTV will provide new/hip/trendy things, while this Netflix things gives you good access to older/nonpremium films.

(2) A recent study concludes that even with HD-DVD defeated, BluRay hasn't immediately taken off, in no small part due to the fact that Blu-Ray players still cost a billion dollars. Duh. (But I still want one).

(3) Two more uses for AirportExpress:

(4) Finally, if you're traveling a lot, I don't see how/why to not get one of these. Screw the Macbook Air, you can put your whole computer in your pocket, as long as you have a host computer to boot on. 160 Gig for $129, and measures in at 12.7 cm x 8.1 cm x 1.8 cm.
