I saw an iSight software update pop up in the Software Update control panel tonight, and it got me to thinking. When this little gadget was introduced, I had one within a week or two. It was a semi-impulsive buy and I’ve really enjoyed playing with it and chatting with friends from around the country, as you can see.
But the realization that I almost never use it hit me when I saw that update. I actually thought “Well, I could update, but I’d never reap the benefits of the update since I almost never use the thing.” That’s very unlike me when it comes to technology. The only thing I usually ask when someone offers me software is, “Why couldn’t I have had this yesterday?” So then I started thinking about how I could get more use out of my iSight.
I don’t know why I decided to do it this way. I just had to. Maybe I’ll keep it up a week. Or a day. Or a month. Or a year. I have no way of knowing. All I know is that I’ve found some pretty cool software that can actually detect motion, and then when it detects motion it uploads a photo, waits X minutes (X == 5 in my case) and then checks and does it again if there’s more motion. Pretty sweet!
Come enjoy odd, blurry pictures of me in horrible lighting, frowning down at my screen while you still can.
