When buying sd cards for gopro, don't buy sandisk. They don't work right and your recording thruput will get throttled. Wish i knew that after buying 2 64gb cards. I switched to lexar.

Black jack, the facts are contour got investment money 2 weeks ago. It's in their news link on their site. They've been out of it for a year. That's a year of no product on the shelves, and a year of development behind. Unless they can come up with a camera that records 24 hours of 1080p30 onto a 4 gb sd card with one battery, they don't have a hope of making a comeback. http://video.contour...-camera-market/

No need for an h3b+. The plus line came out just a few months after the 3 series. It's like buying an iphone 5s because your iphone 5 is a few months old. Minimal gain for top dollar. I have 2 h3b and they have enough issues to deal with. Who needs 4k 15fps? Contour went tits up last year. The garmin product looks promising, but is still way behind in features compared to gopro.

After a short stint deep in the Toronto Maple Leafs system I was coming to the end of pro hockey aspirations, and had a choice to make. I had an invite to try out for a minor league starting up in Florida or go out and find a real job. There was no work in Toronto so I moved to Vancouver. A guy I worked with bought a Hobie 18 and dragged me out on it. Came off the water and bought my own. Decided since I still had a highly competitive streak learning to race was the right thing to do. 2 North American championships and more than my share of alcohol later I still need to learn to race. And sail. I've been lucky that friends around me have included me in some of the more crazy antics in sailing. Things no dumb hockey playing kid, and no one in my family, understands. We had a waterfront cottage and used it to snowmobile in the winter when the bay froze over. Barely used it in the summer. Never had a boat there.

If you do an article that includes dan fritz there will be about 150 guys that will want to beat you to death for promoting his shit. He and his cohorts screwed the crew out of over a million dollars in pay, and screwed a client out of about $20 million, and he didn't get his yacht. The 147' yacht sits in the shed to this day. He sets up numerous shell companies to hide transactions. His builds are now done in china, but he markets in north america. If you want more details i'd be happy to provide them privately, but please don't give this asshole any kind of promotion.
