Model from Target Photoshop Fail Makes Light of the Blunder on Ellen

The Target Photoshop blunder last month attracted a LOT of bad press for the company. Target was called out in a big way, they had to come out and apologize to the public, and we doubt they’ll ever shop out their Photoshop work en masse for cheap again.

But one questions not a lot of people asked was “how does the model feel about this?” Read more…

This might be the worst Photoshopping we’ve ever seen… maybe even worse than the floating inspectors from China.

Over the holiday season, many of the brick and mortar retailers (Best Buy among them) promised to match online prices in a bid to stop their clientele from trying in store and ordering from the likes of Amazon online — a process that has been nicknamed “showrooming.”

A couple of months later, Target made its online price match policy year-round. And now, according to Bloomberg, your friendly neighborhood Best Buy (assuming they haven’t closed down the one in your neighborhood, that is) is following suit, making it an attractive place to purchase basic camera gear.

Target’s New Year-Round Price Matching May Make it an Attractive Camera Shop

The war between brick and mortar stores and online retailers ended a long time ago — online retailers won. “Showrooming” was born and the B&M store became no more than a place to try before you went home to buy online. Worst case scenario you needed something right away that you would then return once your online order arrived. It’s not pretty, but that’s the reality of it.

This offered a great “have your cake and eat it too” scenario for consumers; but now the holiday season is over and people are back to shopping online.

Possibility of an Apple Alpha DSLR Arises, but Quickly Fades Away

There was a rumor circulating today that Sony was potentially an acquisition target of Apple, which has $51 billion in cash lying around waiting to be used. Shares of Sony were up nearly 3 percent at one point before the rumors were quashed by analysts. If Apple did somehow acquire Sony in the future, it would bring the company back into the digital camera market that the company explored and then abandoned back in the 90s. However, it doesn’t seem likely that we’ll see an Apple Alpha DSLR anytime soon.

Another photo-related company that’s being mentioned as an acquisition target: Adobe.
