That the camera market is shrinking and shrinking rapidly is not surprising. Smartphones have, by and large, taken their place. And this Infographic illustrates that clearly,

This, from the top-right quadrant was what grabbed my attention.

The point-and-click market has been decimated — as you would expect. A smartphone is as good, if not better, than most low-end point-and-clicks.

An 84% drop is nothing to sneeze about. But, the camera companies, from what I can see, are still continuing willy-nilly with little apparent strategy. No wonder they are being forced to hike prices on their higher end models. Those are the only ones selling.

Nostalgically Amusing ‘Infographic’ Of Discontinued U.K. Cars That May Make A Comeback.

Click image to access nostalgically amusing ‘infographic’ of discontinued U.K. cars that may make a comeback.

Received an e-mail this morning, with a link to the above ‘infographic‘, asking whether I would be game to publish it on this blog.

I had a look.

As soon as I saw that it started with the Jensen Interceptor I knew I had no choice.

Ahhh! The Jensen Interceptor.

A car of my youth! No, I never owned one. They were in their heyday when I was in my early 20s and just getting started at IBM. I had to be more realistic in my choice of sports cars — and started with a Triumph Spitfire.

But a friend of mine, the boyfriend of my then girlfriend’s BFF, had one. He was rich. His was a pale blue Interceptor. I rode in it a couple of times.

But that Interceptor, as with so many of them, was notoriously unreliable. It broke down more often than it went — and, alas and alack, I kid you not.

Once they were coming to stay with us for the weekend. They were supposed to arrive Friday evening but there was no sign of them way into the night — and we are now talking the EARLY 1970s way, way, way before the advent of mobile phones. Eventually we heard from them. They were stranded. Jensen had broken down. The arrived the next afternoon in the Jensen. He took me for a ride. They left Sunday. Heard that it broke down on the way back too!

But here was the ultimate shame. They got married soon after he had purchased the Interceptor. It was quite the wedding. It was at a Stately Home and the plan was that they were to leave on their honeymoon, at dusk, in the pale blue Jensen … Well, you guessed it. The Jensen broke down the morning of the wedding! We all felt so bad. He ended up using a ‘normal’ car.

So, whenever I think of the Interceptor that is what comes to mind. The honeymoon, hindered.

Just recently software security company, Arxan Technologies, released a report that took a look at the current ‘State of Piracy’ across the software, digital media, and gaming industries. Below you will find an infographic that sums up the report’s key findings. These numbers are pretty staggering, for example, the total dollar amount of unmonetized pirated assets reaching $836 billion in 2014. Also, only 50% of organizations have a budget in place to protect mobile applications. For more information, you can find the report here, on Arxan’s website.
