Re the Simple Camera post on Saturday (which got featured on Reddit and Daring Fireball and a bunch of other places out on the Web, and brought in a lot of outside traffic—who'd'a thunk?): I wish just one camera manufacturer would take a flier and hire me to design a super-simple camera for them. Just one. I'll bet I could design a camera that would sell and sell.
I'd even write the instruction manual myself. Heck, I'd even work cheap.
(I approached Apple and tried to pitch them on making an "Apple camera." But there already is an Apple camera: it's called an "iPhone." Not what I had in mind. But you know what they say: Oh well.)

Marten Collins: "Good grief are you proposing to write an understandable handbook? Never get off the ground in my humble opinion. I remember, having bought many years ago a Nikon flashgun, finding parts of the instruction book incomprehensible. Friends couldn't help so I 'phoned Nikon professional here in the U.K. Answer—'we don't know what it means either!'"
