My favorite thing about these then and now type of videos that show what the world used to look like versus what it looks like now is not seeing what has changed but seeing how much has actually stayed the same. This video shows the 100 year difference at Alkmaar in the Netherlands.
The video was made by Frits de Beer, Tara Rikkens and Michael de Vreugd and shows Alkmaar in 1914 and 2014. The scenes in the side-by-side video are shot from the same angle so it’s easy to see the difference. PetaPixel says that a lot of the old footage from 1914 couldn’t be recreated in 2014 because "some locations are ‘gone’ now, while others have gone drastic changes that make them hard to identify."
Jazz singer Kellylee Evans has a great new video directed by Julien & Quentin for her song My Name Is, from the album I Remember When. Retro soul at its best with visuals to match. Worth of a James Bond movie. Or perhaps Peter Sellers.
Canadian musicianKellylee Evans sings jazz and soul music like the best: "She is the recipient of a 2011 Juno. Her 2010 album Nina won in the category Juno Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year." You can buy her album here.
I like all seasons but it’s summer, which will end with the September equinox next week, the one that always gave me the most happiness. This video by Zack Spiger for The Dove & the Wolf is about that. It feels like summer love—intense, fleeting, careless, lazy, eternal and spotless forever set in your mind.
The Dove & the Wolf—Paloma and Lou—are a musical duo from Paris, France. They will be touring the United States and Canada opening for Rachael Yamagata this year.
Thinking about picking up a used iPhone on eBay? Shop carefully, friends: it’s apparently phishing season. The BBC is reporting some auction listings are redirecting to counterfeit eBay login pages — fronts for phishing scams designed to steal customer usernames and credit card information. The good news is that eBay isn’t technically hacked. The online marketplace allows sellers to use scripting to gussy up item listings. Cross-site scripting is generally not allowed, but these scammers are doing it anyway.
"Cross site scripting is not allowed on eBay and we have a range of security features designed to detect and then remove listings containing malicious code," eBay told Engadget. Even so, the BBC says it was able to identify 64 malicious listings from the last 15 days. All those auctions have been removed, of course, and eBay says it is actively seeking out and removing these kinds of listings. Still, better safe than sorry: if eBay is asking you to log in at an erroneous time, double check your address bar to make sure you haven’t been mysteriously redirected.
New in iOS 8 you have the ability to record time-lapse photography right from the Camera app. Time-lapse photography is a type of photography that happens when the frame rate is lower than what is used to view the sequence. When the photo is played at normal speed, time looks to be faster. However, not […] http://ift.tt/eA8V8J
