    The original Lytro had 11 "Megaray" and this one has 40 Megaray, and if I
    remember correctly, the original Lytro could export 2MP images from it's
    sensor data, so 40 "MR" should give you almost 8MP images, which is a
    big step up. But I'm not sure I understand just how "megaray's" correlates
    to megapixels. Maybe it's not 1:1.

    In the end - every Lytro image I ever saw was too blurry where focus was to
    be anything but a cool tech demo.

    I had pretty much the same reaction.

    Nick Bilton is not the best photography writer the NYT has ever used ...
    he also says things like: "One of the hardest concepts to grasp as a
    photographer is depth of field." (different article...).

    Better we learn more about that product from other sources, I suppose...

    Your aphorism struck a chord .
    "Big data can reduce anything to a single number,
    but you shouldn’t be fooled by the appearance of exactitude."
    -Gary Marcus and Ernest Davis, NYT, 2014.04.07

    Although I had a Lanier in my office with a daisy wheel printer, I
    I purchased an AppleII with a dot matrix printer for financial
    projections. In those days there was a perception that anything done on
    a computer must be accurate. The Apple system paid for itself in a few
    months because of the extra business that came my way. I developed a
    reputation for quickly producing accurate projections, that helped
    clients get their loans with less fuss. My projections were probably not
    significantly more accurate than others, but since they were prepared on
    a computer, bankers thought they were highly creditable.
