Inception — Filming the Corridor and Zero Gravity Scene - Absolutely fascinating video as to how the Inception production team pulled off the corridor fight, via Charles Arthur on Twitter.
Amazon’s UK operations are also poised to benefit from Luxembourg ownership in the battle for the lucrative and fast-growing ebook market. Being based in Luxembourg means it can charge VAT on ebook sales at the local rate of 3% rather than the 20% VAT imposed on British-based ebook retailers.
Imagine everything that is wrong about Android phones and UIs & Google privacy and then strap it to the front of your face.
I think if everyone tweeted less the overall quality would improve, so maybe I’m trying to compensate for the rest of the universe. Then again my last three tweets were poop related.
Every app that I try / use tends to get screenshotted on iOS or my Mac [running the stats on my LittleSnapper library, I’ve kept - note not “taken”, that’d be way higher - roughly 6 screenshots a day, since LittleSnapper launched in 2008].
Photo Stream is great for getting those to my Mac without using Image Capture, but until a moment ago there were 200 screenshots, all imported away from iPhoto, that reside in my Photo Stream. To say it makes for bizarre Apple TV slideshows would be an understatement.
Here’s the strategy I used to purge them from my iPhone, iPad and Mac - remember, iOS 5.1 doesn’t allow you to remove images from Photo Stream, and have them removed from all your devices in one fell swoop, that were taken prior to iOS 5.1. Only images taken with iOS 5.1 can be deleted once, and removed from all your devices.
I make no claims about this being pretty - it ain’t - but my plan was basically to remove all the screenshots from Photo Stream without having to do so on every single device.
It’s crude, annoying to have to do, and not particularly Apple’s finest hour. But if you’re wanting to clear out Photo Stream this should get it back in shape - and ready for the long-overdue ability to remove from Photo Stream once, and have the deletion occur across all devices.
You could also just reset Photo Stream at iCloud.com: but that kinda irked me about removing stuff that was already in my Photo Stream - I didn’t want to remove everything.
