Also, artist Richard Prince has been taking Instagram photos and selling them as fine art for up to $100,000 and he and the Gagosian Gallery are now being sued by photographer Donald Graham.  Also, watch the skies, especially if you are in a downhill ski competition, as a UAV for a television station nearly takes out a competition skier.  Samsung has announced a 2TB storage system that has 256 bit encryption and is the size of a credit card!   This is no joke, but Kodak has announced it will be producing the first Super 8mm film camera in over 30 years!  Also, tune in for lots of news about 4K systems and recommended standards.
