This was shot on the Hudson River boardwalk in New York City. It took two hours to shoot with a picture being taken roughly every 5 seconds for a total of 1,440 pictures stitched together to make a 1 minute clip. I chose the angle to show a diversity of movement; still boardwalk, slight movement of clouds and shadows, swift movement of boats and kayaks and the hyper motion of the people on the boardwalk.

Last October, Acer and Asus debuted the first ultrabooks, a class of laptops characterized by their sub-inch-thick chassis. The trim designs, however, left engineers little room to include graphics cards or large, fast processors.
If you buy a cheapie laptop, you're going to get onboard graphics--historically underpowered, since they exist on the same die as the CPU, and thus historically crappy. To play serious games, or do any real video editing, you'd need to upgrade to a discrete graphics card.
"Ultrabook" is a word you've probably already heard used to describe a thin, powerful laptop. You've probably also seen a MacBook Air—the genre's archetype. But if you haven't heard the term this year, get ready for some major exposure: ultrabooks are the way PC laptops will be marketed to us in 2012. But are they something new? Or simply a laptop, refined?
In a move that could remake the microchip industry, Intel announced Wednesday it will start mass-producing the first three-dimensional silicon transistors. The 3-D transistor design, which Intel says will improve efficiency by more than one-third, will be integrated into a 22-nanometer node in an Intel chip called Ivy Bridge.
The joys of working from home are many -- peace, quiet, wear whatever you like -- but the greatest may be the cozy warmth of using a laptop in bed. Unfortunately, as the folds of the bedclothes impede the cooling airflow through the machine, it becomes hotter and hotter, to the detriment of the laptop and its surroundings.
Now, Intel is promising secret "pillow-proof" technology to prevent this overheating.
Through its various technological bells and whistles and the apps that you’re constantly updating with what you’re doing there, your smartphone already knows a lot about you. But don’t you wish your phone knew you a little more, you know, intimately? Intel’s chief technology guru says it will, and soon. The company is working up ways to help phones connect with users on an emotional level, sensing moods and feelings and reacting accordingly.
The next generation of Internet-connected TVs and set-top boxes make the Web something you surf with a remote, not a mouse.
Because an increasing number of TVs now stream video from the Web, manufacturers are building interfaces to help you navigate this sea of content. The Internet link also allows computer-like interactions, such as searches, alongside videos.
Efficient new laptops can run multiple programs without sucking extra wattage. That’s because they pace themselves. Their processors can shut down partially when the screen is static or when running simple tasks, and ramp up to full steam when big programs call for it.
