    If we’ve reached the stage where people will no longer ever bother thinking about what they are taking a picture of and just play around with it later to see what pops up, then really what is the point?

    Their first camera is not even on sale yet but they’ve already stated promoting their CEO. Is this some kind of a joke or the CEO wishes to gain some popularity & stock market gain?

    From a programmer’s perspective, I would ** much ** rather have a camera that generates (somehow) some kind of multiresolution image than a super-advanced camera that does ** not ** let you focus after the fact. This new approach seems fundamentally superior.
