Klout's going dark

Klout1

D-Day is Friday, May 25.

So you've got 11 days to pump up your Klout score before it disappears into the ether.

At one time my score was up in the 70s, but I've deteriorated over the years, as you can see above.

Honestly, I was surprised when I read about Klout's coming demise, as I thought it had disappeared a long time ago.

Sic transit gloria mundi.

Meta-obituaries here and here.

Metta World Peace here.

Wait a sec... what's that music I'm hearing?

Hands-Free Binoculars

87657_1000x1000

Something to use till 2020 when Apple's AR iGlasses will blow everything else out of the water.

From the website:

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

These easy-to-use wearable binoculars enable hands-free magnified viewing.

Unlike traditional binoculars that require one to constantly keep head and hands steady, this liberating unit is worn like traditional eyeglasses.

The binoculars' 15mm objective glass and plastic lenses provide optimal light gathering for their size, while individual focusing knobs on each telescopic lens grants 4X magnification and provide an 8.2º field-of-view of 467' at 1,093 yards.

Their lightweight design makes the binoculars comfortable for extended use, enabling one to enjoy magnified visibility of a sporting event, concert, or live theatre.

• 6.25" x 2.25" x 2" 

• 3.25 oz.

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

The more I look at them the more they bring to mind something Buzz Lightyear might wear in the next sequel.

But I digress.

$99.95 (images included).

Wait a sec... what's that music I'm hearing?
