    Google to Buy Motorola Mobility for $125 Billion
    Gear  |  News  
    In a bid to strengthen its mobile business, Google is buying up Motorola Mobility (the Motorola cellphone business) for $40 a share in cash, or $12.5 billion...by far Google’s largest ever for an acquisition — is 63 percent above the closing price of Motorola Mobility shares on Friday.
    “This is an emphatic exclamation point that Google is a mobile company,” said Ben Schachter, an analyst with Macquarie Capital. “This is clearly a defensive deal, they were backed in a corner and they had to protect the Android platform.” [ link ]

    Espresso Solo
    Gear  |  Projects  
    Espresso Solo is a conceptual project made from a concrete case and metal working parts. I love this style.
    "My 'espresso solo' project is a conceptual project. Called Espresso Solo, the conceptual product features metal working parts and a concrete case. The espresso machine makes only espresso: short and long. The design process begun in choosing the material: I choose concrete. I had a vision: concrete in the kitchen, not only as a wall or decorative part, I wanted it to be a desirable consumer product. The contrast between the roughness, massiveness and hardness of the concrete and the fine metal parts, which are dealing with the coffee preparation process, was very challenging and interesting for me.

    When Matthew Harrison got married recently, he was given the awesome gift of a f/.95 Noctilux ring:
    "As is tradition, the bride and groom exchanged gifts prior to the wedding. While Matthew purchased Emily the watch that she had always wanted. Emily commissioned a custom ring for Matthew’s shooting hand (as opposed to for his wedding band). This one of a kind band has the depth of field scale from his favorite lens, the .95 Noctilux. On the sides, the ring features both Matthew’s name and The Leica Guy moniker on one side, and the Lens information including name, filter size, and serial number on the other." [the lecia guy]
    The ring was commissioned and made by jeweler Gaelen in British Columbia, Canada, from handmade engagement rings.
