GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition vs iPhone 6s 4K 30 fps

I wanted to see which was better at shooting 4K Video. Below is the YouTube video, and the links to the source files for your own comparison.

I posted a YouTube video of samples of the Vicovation Marcus 3 Dashcam and thought I’d share the raw files as well. Below is the YouTube video and the links to download the raw files.

Top Gear Builds Snow Plow, Solves UK’s Winter Worries

Top Gear Snow Plow 1

On season 16 episode 5 of Top Gear UK Jeremy Clarkson (Jezza), Richard Hammond (Hamster), and James May (Captain Slow) decided to tackle the big problem that England faces now more often than never. I am talking of course of the very minuscule amount of snow they receive. In early February 2009 the snow ranged from 3.9 inches to 7.9 inches, which is nothing compared to what happens here in Canada or the US. From watching the news, I was able to understand that they have not invested enough money in snow removal. I can understand that, however when it happens two years in a row, and causes high financial losses, and travel disruptions can’t they justify it? It’s not only a matter of money, they probably are not trained well for this type of job. Here in Montreal I actually stand and watch the snow removal team, because to me it’s so interesting, they have it down to a science.

Top Gear Snow Plow 2

I’m glad to have seen this episode of Top Gear because it’s always interesting to see that others have a similar viewpoint on a situation. The lads converted a combine harvester into a snow plow. For the most part it did an excellent job in my opinion. The manufacturers could easily create a more reliable set of modifications (which would probably not cost much in research and development) which lets the harvesters double as snow plows. I found it really interesting that since these harvesters are not being used in the winter, it’s a great win/win situation. This means farmers can either rent out their harvesters or plow during the winter to make extra money (Every documentary or news piece I’ve seen including farmers always says how they struggle to not go bankrupt) and the government does not have to spend too much money on a solution. Why did it take a TV show to bring the concept to light instead of the government/BAA? Finally let me just say that it wouldn’t be Top Gear if they didn’t add some other bells and whistles and made themselves look like bumbling idiots. I love their humor, and while others just don’t get it, that makes it all the more funnier.

Amazing CGI Commercial – Silestone Above Everything Else

I was bored and was on when I saw this post. Anyways it’s a commercial made in CGI that looks so realistic its just breaks your brain. It is called Above Everything Else created by Alex Roman for Silestone. I would have thought it would be some sort of insurance commercial based on the name and everything falling, however it’s just the counter tops throughout the commercial.

Jeremy Clarkson makes fun of the iPhone 4 antenna problem

After reading about the iPhone 4 antenna problem, I’m glad I don’t have plans (as of yet) to purchase one. Today I was watching Top Gear (the most watched tv show in the world FYI), when Jeremy Clarkson made fun of the issue while introducing The Stig. I felt it was really funny, and well worth sharing! One of the main reasons I watch Top Gear is because of Mr. Clarkson’s Humor!
