Posted on 03/28/2014 4:15:40 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
You want to know my cell phone pet peeve? It is folks who hold their cell phones vertically to make video recordings. It drives me NUts since it cuts out a lot of range of field and is so easily solvable. I mean can't these folks figure it out for themselves? Over and over and over again we get recordings with thick black bands on the sides all because the people using the cell phone are too clueless to hold them HORIZONTALLY when recording.
End of rant.
LOL they deserve to be hunted like beasts.
Just ZOT ‘em! ... :-) ...
you would think they would realize the wide part goes sideways like the tv and movies.
We didn’t have problems like this when I was a kid.
Should I turn my TV sidewise (horizontal) to get rid of those?
I got some home video that would be a lot better with those black bands...
What bugs me is I don’t have a cell phone and there seems to be no coverage here. A few months ago they began constructing a really high tower only a few hundred yards from me. It appears to be finished and they spent a huge amount of effort in building it only to put a tiny antenna on top about the size of a car’s radio antenna.
I have searched dozens of web sites showing locations of cell towers and none list one anywhere near here. I just know someone, somewhere hates me and is making sure there is no cell phones in this area.
Oh, yes those people who use vertical instead of horizontal should be executed on the spot.
Agree. I did this myself the first time I captured a video, but saw the results and haven’t done it since. I guess some people don’t learn.
Although the vertical cameras would be optimal for videoing a pinball game.
We didnt have problems like this when I was a kid.
When I was a kid, our phones had rotary dials, and we liked it that way ;)
We are living the easiest existence ever enjoyed by the human animal...and listen to us bitch.
I have lint in my navel but none on my I-Phone.
You betcha ! :)
“When I was a kid, our phones had rotary dials, and we liked it that way ;)”
Me too,and I worked for the phone company and we all wanted telephone numbers with low digits because they were a bit quicker to dial.
My grandmother had a candlestick phone and I thought it was the coolest thing.
LOL! I hate that as well. Saw this beautiful video of a woman who just heard sounds for the first time in her life and her stupid mom ruined the video by shooting it in portrait. Man I was focusing on the wrong thing there but it just annoyed me.
This is decidedly a first world problem :-)
