When I was 7 and all into the Monkeys and had heard some Beatles, being the little one among many siblings, I was with em all visiting the eldest who had moved out to So Cal. While they all "chewed the fat" I was thumbing through his record collection and came across a curious record that was shaped like a stop sign and had the most motley disrespective looking lads on the cover. "Through the past darkly" was the record and when I got to honkey tonk woman, well this corn fed punk from St. Paul was to never be the same again.
On the surface, it's a good idea - ish - for people who don't actually want to interact with their pets: they can go away and feed them remotely from the Seychelles, or a bangin' club in Tenerife.
But ... then you spot what Caroline noticed: the camera can't actually see the food dish, so you have no idea if they are hungry. This (and the rather indifferent software) may be why the newer version has the camera removed.

Probably 10 to 15 years ago, NASA made a feverish search for the original 2-inch video tapes from the Apollo 11 moon landing, so the tapes could be properly digitized with high quality before the world's last 2-inch tape player was ditched. "Everybody" had the images transmitted back to earth; they were definitely "1960 quality". Much better quality video images were brought back on tape. (And still images were of course excellent.) But at the time when the tape machine was to be thrown out, noone could tell where the tapes had gone.
I never heard of the tapes ever being found. Are they still lost? (And: Was the tape machine ditched, or was it saved in hope of the tapes being found?
I couple of years ago, saw a a brushed-up version of the moon landing movie, but I interpreted the written commments as this being a digitally processed version of the video transmitted to earth (and the quality was certainly far below what I would expect from a 2-inch tape).
Does anyone know the full story of the video tapes from the moon landing?
