If you don’t know what K.I.S.S. is an acronym for, it’s time to look it up here at Wikipedia.  Subject to that idea, I would like to comment on Keeping It Simple.  I assume that one of the reasons that Apple and Google have done so well is because they got rid of all the bells and whistles and made things clean.  Just thinking to myself the big difference between the two aforementioned companies versus the likes of Microsoft, Yahoo or AOL and I would state its clutter, or lack thereof.

A friend of mine came in to me today asking how to get rid of the “stupid dog” that is now on the Yahoo email message.  Something that was never there before has now appeared and it took some looking around to figure out how to remove a silly image that a grown man probably doesn’t want to send as part of all his emails.

To that degree, let’s talk about movies.  And by movies I actually mean the blockbusters.  What are most of the blockbusters coming out in?

You got it: 3D

I’m not sure about you, but after the first or second time, movies in 3D are not a thrill for me anymore.  In fact, I actually don’t like them.  But sometimes the 3D movie might be the only one that is available, or is the next available film.  What am I do to about this?  Why haven’t they kept it simple, stupid?  Now, to some relief there are glasses that turn 3D movies into 2D.  Woot!   Here’s how they work:

When you watch a 3D movie, there are actually two images being projected onto the screen. That’s why the screen is blurry when you look at it without glasses. In 3D glasses one of the lenses blocks one image and the other lens blocks the other image.

Thus, when you watch a 3D movie each of your eyes is seeing a slightly different image. Your brain combines those images together, creating the illusion of a 3D image.

2D Glasses block the same image with both lenses, so each eye gets the same picture resulting in a 2D image and an elimination of eyeball strain.

    I really like the 2D glasses, It makes watching 3D movies less tiring and it won’t make my head dizzy after watching 3D movie anymore.

    I think some good 3D is alot better than 2D movie. I mean if it was 2D it wouldn’t be this good.

    I hate 3D. 4D is awesome! I have watched it the first time at Disney Land in Hong Kong. That is the first time I enjoy watching kid things and i found it funny. I can feel the scent and how yummy those cakes were. Wish i can have those jewelries for real. The only part i dun like about it is the water splashes because the water smell horrible and it’s like a tiny drop. It maybe because they dont want to waste any water within only one show.
