The Lakers and Kobe are in Europe for the NBA’s preseason tour. Note how they corrected the date at the beginning of this video from May to October.
Google announced on Monday that several television networks, Internet and media companies, including HBO, CNBC and Twitter, will be its partner in offering Web content and programming via televisions, to allow on-demand viewing and apps built for the big screen. But the major networks — ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC — were absent from Google’s content partnerships.
Good work by The Oklahoman’s high school football beat writer Bob Przybylo. Captured a memorable night in Chickasha as the town honored one of its own.
“AT&T’s unlimited calling plan is $70 [not including the mandatory $30 for Internet service]. Unlimited texting is another $20. So for unlimited calling and texting, you must pay AT&T $90 a month. With Line2, you can drop your AT&T texting plan entirely, and drop your calling plan to the 450-minute plan at $40. So subtract $50 from your AT&T bill, add our new price of $10, and you are saving $40 a month!”

With October rolling around, Oklahoma gets better weather – usually mild, enjoyable days with little drama. It also means I get fatter due to higher consumption of Halloween candy.
To accompany The Oklahoman’s coverage of haunted houses for people to enjoy during October’s weekends, I shot a tour of the haunted house near NW 10 and Penn Ave in Oklahoma City.
The people at the house, I counted 4-5, stayed in character the 45 minutes I was there. Honestly, I thought it was fun and a little more enjoyable than the typical cattle herd process of stumbling through a dark warehouse maze. But both have their upside.
I debated using a Canon 7D to shoot this, but figured I was better off using something that required less skill. Also, it was very dark in there and I didn’t want to destroy a lens by bumping into a Freddy Krueger. Or plastic skull.
About 5 seconds into this house, I’m fumbling for the nightshot on the Sony A1U HVR, which is near the lens. One thing I quickly realized, the lens cover on this camera eats into the nightshot’s range. So to compensate, the video is actually resized larger in post production. The result is a little less annoying than wondering why the top third is completely black the entire time.
