Canon Guy and Nikon Girl - Music Video


Link

Funny Gangsta Rap.

Lyrics-

This is a story from not long ago
about a boy and a girl who fell in love like whoa
but there was a problem I didn't count on
the fact I was a Canon and she was a Nikon

The photo community was too far gone
they couldnt appreciate what we had goin' on
we had similar features, made similar pictures
we really weren't that different but they still couldn't see

I auto focused on her sexy body
buttons to push didn't know where to get started
I never thought I'd fall for a D200
but she was so hot, she was all that I wanted

[Chorus]
My 1DS mark III
felt more complete
when we were together she said my shots were so unique

But soon you'll see
we could never be
like Romeo and Juliette
our families disagreed

Ohh Ahh Polish my lens girl
oooahh polish my lens girl
ohh-ahh polish my lens girl
dont leave a thumb print on that lense girl

The two sides always at war
all across the message boards
Dpchallenge what the fuck yo
they could never let go
of the hate no thats for 'sho
the Nikon gang whooped my ass and made me go

The 70-200 in my pants wouldnt fit inside her Nikon body
made me wear a UV-filter, which I'm against, but shes my shawtay
Mount her on my tripod and screw her on and off and on again
make her take my picture and say I'm the best thats ever been

[Chorus]

Cause I'm a Canon gangsta and your a Nikon shawtay
I wanna take a picture of that rockin bootay

We couldnt keep the act up we just had to face the facts
but hey look on the bright side at least we're not a Pentax (Ouch!!!)

On Google Chrome OS


Link

Everything in the cloud? As long as I can save files on my Eee PC's SSD storage I will be very happy. Also:

1. Ability to read PDF without the internet
2. Ability to print
3. Ability to watch downloaded movies
4. Ability to listen to MP3s stored locally
5. Ability to connect to camera, external storage via USB
6. Ability to touch up photos
7. Option for offline webmail

Based on this video and the direction Google is going with their Chrome OS, I believe some additional work needs to be done for number 1, 2, 5 and 6. And we haven't talked about webcam yet. Yes, it may bloat the OS a little. But certainly with that it will definitely make a compelling reason for me to switch to Chrome OS on my Eee PC when the OS is release in 2010(?).
