Some basic math, to try to predict the price of the Canon EOS Rebal Digital...

The list price of the 10D is $2000, but I see it selling for $1400. The list price of the Rebel is $900, so...

1400
------
2000
=X
-----
900


so...

1400 * 900 = 2000 * X

Meaning...

1260000 = 2000X

Then...

1260000
---------
2000
=X


Which leaves us with...

630 = X


So, if the pricing ratio stays the same, the new camera (body only, lense sold seperately) will sell for $630. It will use all the old EOS (EF) lenses, and the new EF-S series, which give you wider angles on the digital camera.

When I see point and shoot digital camera's going for $800 street price for 5mp, and lower quality pictures, I wonder how this will shake up the digital market in all areas.

You can read about the new camera here and here.

Ummm... Ummm... I don't think I can come up with a comment for this one.

Ahhh... The good ol' days of gaming.

Finally! I can use "bootylicious" with impunity!!!! "Thur" as in "Right Thur" is still banned.

Woo Hoo! My camera is back. My Sister grabbed it by mistake. My sanity is slowly returning. At least to the small levels I had before it was gone. ;)

Did anyone else catch the speach by the Judge in Alabama, who is fighting to keep the 10 Commandments in the court house?

He stated that people should not do what judges say, and that is why he is not removing the monument. So, does this mean that people should disregard every ruling he has ever made?

It doesn't smell like it, but we must be getting fomr of the forrest fire smoke, as it's been really hazy all day long.

Bush was in town today. Supposedly this is an important stat to him. So important he spent a total of 3 hours from when he landed, and then took off again. Just long enough to get $2,000+ a person from the 500 some people who went to his fund raiser (and were not protesting). Minimum of $2, 000 to get attention from him. Or just protest and get attention for free!

From what I understand, the protest was pieceful until the Police ordered people off the sidewalks. Then ordered them back onto the sidewalk, half the people didn't understand at some points, so the police pulled out the pepper spray to help them understand.
