iPhone 5

10 October, 2009

so much ado for nothing

Well, I planned for days that I would visit Castle Towers (a shopping centre) in Castle Hills today. To see Harry Connick Jr performing live to be exact. Connick's scheduled appearance in Castle Towers was well announced before the recent Hey Hey (Channel Nine) incident (where a skit featured blackfaced Jackson 5, and a very white Micheal Jackson. Connick who not impressed, as spoke for the blacks.)

After two road tolls and 20+ minutes in the car park trying to find a parking space, this was what I got:
Harry Connick Jr appearance cancelled

Sorry Don, the photo was taken by my iPhone 3G. It's not the best camera in the world without a doubt.

Well, I did not check the website again before I depart this morning. I was certainly not impressed there.

It was my first time visiting Castle Hills. The trip was fine thanks to the Navman S30 GPS navigator. I was a bit surprised with the amount of crowd in the Castle Towers shopping centre, perhaps, I forgot that today was Saturday. Also, if you are not familiar with a shopping centre's car park space, getting straight to the roof for parking is usually a wise choice.

On the way back I detour to Parramatta for more window shopping. (to Don: Antony is poor.)

Well, according to yesterday's advertisement. Harry Connick Jr will be appear live on tomorrow's Australian Idol (Channel Ten) and on Monday morning's Sunrise (Channel Seven)

Well, that's one reason why I just listen to the live concert broadcasts on the radio instead.

You demand the highest quality possible, remember? Why bother with converted signal transmitted from radio towers? Get the best 'live music' you can!

I fear Harry Connick Jr, being from New Orleans, may be a little insincere about his defense of A-A's in this instance.

He did well. All black people thank him.

Antony, I don't know where you came up with the "highest quality possible" thing, seeing as you know I listen to radio and don't use lossless audio (although you say I do anyway).
Posted by Don_HH2K on 11 October 2009 11:46 PM.
May I remind you on this JPEG vs PNG debate, it demonstrated your demand on 'lossless' format/codec/compression. Hence, the 'highest quality possible' is correctly used and well justified.
Sorry I forgot that you have access to digital radio.
Posted by Antony on 11 October 2009 11:55 PM.
That old thread doesn't demonstrate any demand for a lossless format, but it does show that you refuse to acknowledge that PNG-8 exists, instead using PNG-24 for all of your examples. Barely anybody uses PNG-24.
Furthermore, I can't believe you would dig that up; I thought all that "extremist" stuff had long passed.
Also, no, I don't have access to digital radio. I have a standard AM/FM radio that I got off eBay.
Posted by Don_HH2K on 13 October 2009 10:50 PM.
Most people use PNG-24, not the PNG-8.
And that thread just came to my head when you ask me where I got your 'highest quality possible' thing from.
