New Chinese, Hugely-Discounted ‘Fitbit’ Site — X-99.Club: Tread With Utmost Care.

by Anura Guruge

Just remember:

“If it is too good to be true, then it might not be true.”

Be careful. Very careful.

Check U.S. prices.

35% discount on a newly announced product. Too good to be true.

Remember, Fitbit is NOT a Chinese company. So, there is no mechanism whereby it can be this much cheaper in Japan.

IF you are IN THE U.S., and want a Garmin at the BEST possible U.S. price contact me. I could send YOU to the right people with a MAGIC password! SMILE.

Yes, I already have a Fitbit Versa 2. My wife is wearing it, right now.

Pope Francis Expresses Concern About The Strides Being Made In Artificial Intelligence!

I had to smile. You have to smile.

You do not have to go all the way back to the Galileo trial. Gregory XVI (1831 — 1846) banned railways from the Papal States calling them calling them chemins d’enfer (road to hell), a play on the French for railroad, chemin de fer (iron road).

Yes, popes have a storied history of being very perturbed by all things new and modern.

So, this should not come as a surprise.

But, it still made me smile.

I Installed Firmware v1.3 On My Canon EOS RP — And In Case You Want The Instructions.

Installation Procedure.

I got an e-mail yesterday, from Canon, saying that I can improve my photographs. Then went onto say that I should upgrade my Canon EOS RP to Firmware v1.3.

They made it easy. All you had to do to get to the update was to press a BIG RED button. Did so. Was slightly disappointed that the ABOVE instructions weren’t there! They are included in the ZIP file you download. Hence, why I published them here. I did a quick Google and got the gist of what I needed to do.

I had skipped v1.2. I had never done a firmware update on a Canon. Knew I would have to bit the bullet some day. So, decided to give it a try.

I knew I would need a formatted SD card and a fully-charged battery. Got that taken care of.

The process was very straightforward, smooth and quick.

I was all done in less than 10-minutes. No problems. Worked, to my relief, first time.

The new firmware does not appear to have clobbered the camera. That is good news too. So, so far, so good.

Taken after update.

I feel — and also know — that I am privileged. I get to spend hours surrounded by this. Wonderful when I am walking.

But, please remember, I pay the price. This is just compensation for 5-months of cold, snow, ice and winds! So, it is like the last hurrah prior to the misery of winter. SMILE. And this year, after my knee injury in February, I won’t even be able to shovel snow. That really was my only joy in winter. Shoveling snow. It is so satisfying.

I will try and make this a daily event. Sharing the local foliage with you. Not difficult — really. I can just step outside and snap a few pictures. 50% of these were within 100 yards of my front door!
