#snapshot

Today I went to see the #snapshot exhibition at the Finnish museum of photography.

The Internet has fundamentally changed photography. Never in history have people created so many photographs to such vast and immediate audiences as today. Never before has the individual snapshot taken by ordinary men and women had such global political impacts. Photographs have become integral in all forms of our communication. Today, sharing pictures is as important as creating them.

As a featured image on the top, you can see part of the mountain of all public Flickr images uploaded on a single day.
The exhibition is still open on Sunday if you want to ponder the motivation and impact of photo sharing.

Ylläs

Despite the sometimes chilling temperature of -36C°, trip to Ylläs and Äkäslompolo last weekend was full of fun.

Headspace pricing

Headspace advertises itself as a gym membership for your mind. I believe it is true in the sense that people attend Headspace sessions for a short period beginning of the year and then end paying for nothing.
Oh well, I do have a gym membership, so I decided to looked at the prices of Headspace as well. The yearly subscription on the web is 71,88 euros and on the iOS it’s 84,99 euros. There is a considerable 13 euros difference. Apple does take a cut on the 84,99 euros that is more than 25 euros. It would be nice to know the logic behind that price difference. Is it calculated from the real costs of doing subscription business on iOS or from a guesstimate that you can have higher prices on iOS compared to web without affecting sales?
Would you happen to have Android device to check the prices from on that platform and leave a comment below? That would be great. At the same time check out the ten free sessions, I bet they are worth your while.
