Comparing lenses

I got my ReasyCase yesterday! The case feels fine. It is sturdy, reasonably slim, and carries a small serrated metal pice which also works as a bottle opener. Also on the back is a slim USB memory (16GB) which doubles as a stand for the case – handy!

With it came two lenses. Since I already had a couple of Gizmon lenses, I made a comparison between the two pairs.

The top image compares the lenses marked as “fisheye”. As you can see, the Gizmon on the right is the best.

The middle image compares the wide lenses. Not much difference, but again, the Gizmon is wider.

The bottom picture is taken without a lens.

The wide lenses can be “opened” and used as macro lenses. Here the ReadyCase lens has a better magnification than the Gizmon.

Unzip and flatten multiple zip-files on a Mac (bash)

Here’s just a quick note to my future self (other people are free to take part of it too though).

When using the * character to unzip several files using the unzip command on a Mac, the * has to be escaped as unzip wants to do its file listing by itself, rather than having bash do it for it.

So instead of writing unzip *.zip, you would write \*.zip.

Also as a final note to self, to unzip several zip-files into e.g. the parent directory and also ignore any directory structure contained by the zip file + overwriting any duplicate files, one would write

unzip -o -j -d ../ \*.zip

To many Androids. I am not saying that choice is bad, but too many similar choices are hard for people.
