I guess I should have given more info on TILTRIS on the BB Storm... it's TETRIS, but you control the placement by tilting the screen - hence the electronic level tie in...

But like they say, if you have to explain the joke...

Prediction: Canon will *soon* replace the Direct Print button with a Play PONG button. We will finally get to see the shiny blue LED, although our attention will be on the PONG instead.
When: not soon enough... :rolleyes:

ok i must say that though (unfortunately) i'm generally not easily amused - i actually started laughing out loud when i read this! :lol:

Yes, but you need the optional BG to power them. :cool:

Lake Success New York:

The release of the 7D has been hampered with problems.
In addition to many units displaying back focus with all lenses due to quality control issues, it seems that a design problem in the "hyper burst" AF Engine is flawed, resulting in the 7D choosing to always focus on a subjects feet.

You heard it here first!

You are a sick, sick individual... :lol:

This just in from the Rob Galbraith site:


Having had an advanced copy for a few days now, I have some observations re: Canon's new 7D.

We were surprised to find after much testing that the PONG feature was not equal to the PONG game found on previous models.
The joystick controlled the PONG player well most times, but on hot sunny days, we found the PONG "Stick" could not keep up with movements,. the stick became fuzzy and out of focus,. and missed the ball many times.

Canon has been contacted and is evaluating our 7D for "Racket Stress"

I'm sure then the (actual product) is ready to be for sale in stores everything should be just fine.

Oh, by the way here is one out of several test frames, not sure why the 7D has such an issue?

The feet are in sharp focus!
