MacBook as digital camera…
...or how the MacBook came to Julio Ojeda-Zapata's rescue:
'I checked out Apple Computer's retail-store grand opening at the Ridgedale mall today, but I couldn't use my digital camera because its battery was dead.
'So I unsheathed a MacBook and use its built-in webcam, in tandem with Apple's Photo Booth software, as a still camera. This was awkward at first, but great fun once I got the hang of it. I didn't want to stop.
'My pics aren't of the greatest quality, but they have an informal "you are there" quality. My MacBook shooting attracted more attention than a standard camera would have, so you'll see people playfully mugging for the laptop.
'On the down side: my fingers and my arms are really tired. I wouldn't want to do this often '
Update: Someone shot Julio shooting him. See the photo of the MacBook taking a photo of the photographer taking a photo of the MacBook taking a photo...
