Fuji XF 56mm f/1.2 & XF 90mm f/2.0 Review →

I’m back on Tools & Toys with a review of Fuji’s two finest portrait prime lenses. This pair (and an X-T1) accompanied me on several trips, which gave me a good opportunity to put them through their paces and see what they excel at. As always, you can peep at larger versions of the photos on Flickr.

Facebook Notes →

Today marks the beginning of another experiment for Facebook: a total revamp of their Notes system. I have access to the beta and figured the best place to share my thoughts is natively, on Facebook.

Amazon’s Next Kindle Voyage

While my Kindle vs. Kobo comparison has become one of the most-read articles on the site, I’m left with some lingering regret that I couldn’t include the Voyage in my comparison. From the emails I’ve received, I know many of you were also hoping that I would one day follow up with a Voyage review.

Fuji X100T →

It’s been a long time coming, but my review of the Fuji X100T is finally ready. The amazing folks at Tools & Toys were kind enough to publish it, so head over and enjoy the read! If you’d like to peep at larger versions of the photos, you can do so on Flickr.

Finding Clients as a Film/Game Composer

Someone on Reddit asked the following question: Is there anywhere that puts composers/musicians in touch with student/indie filmmakers who are looking for scores? I see this and similar questions being asked all the time, either on forums, Reddit, or my inbox.

Google Inbox, 8 Months Later

Time flies when you’re having fun, even when it comes to email. I wrote about Google Inbox when it was first released, and I’ve been using it on and off ever since. Yesterday, along with the rest of its I/O talking points, Google announced that it was opening Inbox up to everyone.

The Kindle Finally Gets Typography That Doesn’t Suck →

Better late than never, right? I really like the look of this new Bookerly typeface, and since I don’t have a Kindle Fire this new iOS update is the first I’ve seen of it.

On a standard screen it’s great, but the real challenge is e-ink, so I’ll reserve judgement until I see it on my Paperwhite 2…maybe by the time it releases I’ll have a Voyage to test it on!

Kindle vs. Kobo: The Future of Reading

Remember reading? Before technology became a prism splitting our mind’s eye into competing beams of attention, we used to feed our imagination with words on a page. It required our full attention, this mind meal, and was tremendously nourishing. It has since become something of an acquired taste. It was called reading.
