Grandpa got a new camera. Here is a picture taken with it, showing him sitting in his car. That windshield must be very clean.
Zak at the bookcase. The new camera is a Casio Exilim EX-S600, a very slim pocket model. It offers the option of generating funny versions of your pictures on request. Really? No, though perhaps the camera makers should look into that. [It turns out the makers of phones and phone apps did it] The digitally-modified funny face is actually the result of Grandpa playing with his image-editing software. See more funny faces further below.
