The Death of a Crummy Digital Camera

So I bought this totally shitty camera for $30 a couple of years ago out of pure gadget love, and today it shot its last frame. In a way I'm kind of relieved. The pictures were pretty pathetic -- though I have to admit a certain fondness for it's AutoBrite jpeg color averaging. Skin tones in particular were sort of bizarre. Everyone became "people of color" to its lens. I'm a little sorry the last thing it saw was a somewhat dismal scene from my cubicle (note the fish eye mirror.)

Anyway, RIP Logitech Pocket Digital.

I've had quite a few people asking me why I haven't "blogged" Rosie O'Donnell leaving the view. Well, one, blogs are totally stupid -- and two, I'm still processing the fact that this is pretty much the death of the view, unless Bette Midler steps up.

Coming Monday -- The Death of the View
