So, you just bought a shiny, new, and maybe expensive, lens for your camera, and being the savvy consumer, you did your homework. You pored over customer reviews on the B&H Photo website, read online reviews splattered all over the Internet, grabbed a copy of every photo magazine that reviewed the lens, bookmarked dozens of websites, and now have the lens’s MTF curve charts burned into your retinas. Now, your lens is here and it is time to go out shooting. Honestly, not a problem. Your lens should be as good as it can be and, as photographers, we want to take photos. So, stop reading and go out and make some photographs! Still here? OK, let me tell you why you might want to test that lens yourself. The main reason is that even with today's precision computer-controlled manufacturing techniques, there are variations in each and every lens that rolls off an assembly line. This means that some examples will be better than others. Some lenses will be outstanding and others will make you wonder if all of those glowing reviews you read online were completely bogus.

Our appetite to create new products and buy new products is infinite. The planet's resources aren't. But it's okay because we can have both: new products and a better environment. Nylon waste from landfills and oceans around the world is transformed into ECONYL® regenerated nylon. It's exactly the same as brand new nylon and can be recycled, recreated and remoulded again and again. That means you can create new products and buy new products without having to use new resources. The future is circular. ECONYL® regenerated nylon is a product that can help you close the loop. Made from waste, it's infinitely recyclable and can unleash infinite possibilities for makers, creators and consumers. It's all part of the ECONYL® brand vision to make the world a better place by pioneering closed loop regeneration processes and delivering sustainable products.

The successful fulfillment on Kickstarter rewards is just the beginning of our journey. We are determined to make such fabrication tools as 3D printers, laser engravers and CNC carvers more accessible with higher quality, lower price and better user experience. We believe that making will be as easy as taking photos in the coming decades. Making or Do-It-Yourself is much more pervasive now than 10 years ago because such fabrication tools as 3D printers, laser engravers and CNC carvers have been popularized. We love these tools ourselves and we hope that more people can make good use of these tools in their daily life as we do. Therefore, we are determined to make these tools even more accessible for ordinary consumers. We hope our products will enable you to turn your ideas into reality no matter you are a 30-year-old engineer, an 80-year-old hobbyist or a 10-year-old student. We have a team of passionate and talented people to make this dream come true. We understand that there are three most common obstacles that hold people back from launching their DIY projects: high price of DIY tools, doubtful quality and the steep learning curve of the tools. That is why we devote unprecedented commitment to hardware and software development and community establishment, ensuring that we can provide high-quality, affordable and user-friendly fabrication machines.

We've finally done it: Fstoppers has moved over to a new 10 Gb/second network and server and it is incredibly fast. Let me show you what we did and how you can create your own 10 Gb/s network for a fraction of the price. For the past four years we have been using a Synology NAS (network attached storage) device to work from and to backup all of our photo and video content. It has served us well but as we hire more people, and as we begin shooting videos in 4K, it has been filling up and slowing down. It was time for us to upgrade.

IF there’s a symbol for the idea that privacy is on people’s minds, it’s the Blackphone. The Blackphone, which went on sale this week for $629, is billed as the first smartphone built solely with privacy and security in mind. It is definitely more secure than your average phone, but comes with trade-offs that most consumers might not need or enjoy. It’s probably best for reporters, dissidents and companies concerned with corporate security.

Litecoin is a peer-to-peer Internet currency that enables instant payments to anyone in the world. It is based on the Bitcoin protocol but differs from Bitcoin in that it can be efficiently mined with consumer-grade hardware. Litecoin provides faster transaction confirmations (2.5 minutes on average) and uses memory-hard, scrypt-based mining proof-of-work algorithm to target the regular computers and GPUs most people already have. The Litecoin network is scheduled to produce 84 million currency units. One of the aims of Litecoin was to provide a mining algorithm that could run at the same time, on the same hardware used to mine bitcoins. With the rise of specialized ASICs for Bitcoin, Litecoin continues to satisfy these goals. It is unlikely for ASIC mining to be developed for Litecoin until the currency is widely used.

Throughout history, whenever technology became personalized, wealth was created. In the 80’s, when computers moved from corporate data centers to homes, new wealth was created - just as PC’s are now giving way to tablets and smart phones. When the world wide web went from being a largely government, corporate and research network to a predominantly consumer network, fortunes were created by companies that never even existed before. What are the experts predicting will be the next consumer wave?

London (CNN) -- A frozen food producer caught up in a scandal over horsemeat found in beef products in the United Kingdom, Sweden and France said Saturday it will sue the Romanian producer it blames for the problem. The French arm of Swedish frozen food firm Findus said it would file a legal complaint Monday against the unnamed Romanian business. Findus said it had been told that its products were being made with French beef, not Romanian horsemeat. "We were deceived," said a Findus France statement. "There are two victims in this affair: Findus and the consumer."
