Recently, I was at dinner with someone who had a Pebble E-Paper Watch. I love the idea of the Pebble, but during dinner, the guy kept looking at his watch. He looked at his watch almost literally every 5-10 seconds. At that point, I decided that I no longer wanted one. I am not sure that I have the discipline to totally ignore the watch when I need do (like I do with my phone), and I don’t want to be the person who looks at his watch every 5-10 seconds.
Today, my gray Pebble watch arrived (I backed their Kickstarter project). I sold it without even opening the box (people are really interestedâ€”it sold in just a few minutes). I think I might have kept it if I were planning to do some development work to make it more interesting, but I know that I won’t make time to do that.

I was assembling a collection of underwater images tonight and decided to see what Adobe Lightroom’s 2012 processing engine would do to an old image I took at Roca Partida (Revillagigedos Islands, Mexico) back in 2006. Back then, I used Adobe Photoshop to quickly process the picture from raw to a 2000-pixel JPG image for screen viewing. Tonight, I pulled up the raw file in Adobe Lightroom, chose the 2012 processing engine, and did a few minor tweaks using the Develop module. WOW. It’s like a different picture.
Have you had pictures take on new life when you’ve gone back and reprocessed old raw files using new image-processing software? If you haven’t, it’s time to get started!
