Welcome to The Fotobug podcast #157!  In recent news, Colin Smith from PhotoshopCafe was recently kicked off a Southwest flight by trying to follow the rules concerning a Li-ion battery in his DJI Phantom.  More details in the podcast!  Brian May, guitarist for Queen, has come out with a device that turns your smart phone into a stereo viewer - cost about $37.  We are also sad to report that Michael Reichmann, founder of the Luminous-Landscape has passed away at the age of 71.  Michael is well known for the phrase "expose to the right" indicating the histogram should have luminous values on the upper half of the graph. Hard disk  giant Western Digital has acquired flash memory manufacturer SanDisk in a deal worth $18 billion.  Finally, Adobe's content-aware fill will soon be available using the crop tool!
