Mark Twain was indeed a remarkable man and writer and I think he would have had a field day with the ufo phenomenon.

10 Awesome GIFs From a Fierce Worldwide Competition

By Joseph Flaherty
04.28.14 | 6:30 am

The Saatchi Gallery in London has finally countenanced what Benedict Cumberbatch-obsessed Tumblr users have known for years: animated GIFs are a legit art form. This is a big deal, as the Saatchi Gallery helped make Jeff Koons’s chrome balloon animals and Damien Hirst’s sectioned sharks become some of the best known pieces of contemporary art. Now it has rechristened GIFs as “Motion Photography” and established a prize to encourage excellence in the field.

Curating the exhibition was another departure. Instead of scouring galleries for up-and-coming talent, creators were invited to submit GIFs via Google Plus. In an effort to keep the canon of modern art free of cat GIFs, the gallery employed a roster of jurors that included Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann and photographer/MacArthur Genius Fellow Cindy Sherman.

The competition drew more than 4,000 entries from 52 countries; this groundswell of GIFs was culled into a shortlist of 60 finalists. Of those, six winners were named in the categories landscape, lifestyle, action, night, people, and urban. The exhibit does an admirable job providing recognition to the often nameless creators of these viral masterpieces and showcases a diverse range of photographers, including those who have made a career of exhibiting at coastal galleries and others who make a living shooting weddings.

One winner, Emma Critchley, is pleased the gallery is drawing attention to moving photos in addition to their static counterparts. “The creative process differs in the way that you’re looking for a very small movement or moment that can be repeated seamlessly,” she says. “It’s really important that the majority of the frame is very still and you have to be quite specific about what elements you allow to move.”

Google is sued for abuse of market power

May 3, 2014

SAN FRANCISCO – Google has been sued for allegedly abusing its market power by forcing makers of handheld devices that use its Android operating system to also provide its applications.

Google’s requirements that manufacturers such as Samsung Electronics adopt less popular applications in order to use consumer favorites such as YouTube are “designed to maintain and extend its monopolies,” according to a complaint filed Thursday in federal court in San Jose, California.

The existence of the Android “mobile application distribution agreements” (MADAs) wasn’t widely known until this year, when Harvard Business School professor Ben Edelman wrote about them on his blog and voiced concerns about anti-competitive behavior similar to the claims in the lawsuit.

Google’s paid search-related advertisements generate billions of dollars of profit a year. The “secret” MADAs require that each Android device maker “pre-loads onto prime screen real estate all of the apps in the suite, whether the manufacturer wants them or not,” according to the complaint.

The lawsuit was filed by the owner of a 2011 HTC EVO 3D phone that runs on Android. The owner argued that Google’s restrictions on Android made the phone more expensive.

Edelman, who is a consultant to companies that compete with Google, said in a February blog post that the Android tie-ins choke competition and raise prices for both advertisers and consumers.
