Quite honestly, the iPhone is perhaps my favorite creative imaging tool… as you may likely attest, if you’ve been following my photo stream for any time. There are very few things the iPhone can do that my Nikon DSLR cannot. There are a few features on the iPhone which the Nikon does not have, and vice versa.

WD-40 is an amazing product.
According to the company it was developed by some outer space types whom were researching a formulation for a type of lubrication that would displace
WD-40 with the new "Smart Straw," an attached folding straw.
Water, as you may know, actually supports oil – which is why we see oil floating on the surface of water, rather than sinking down below the surface.
The initials “WD” stand for “Water Displacement,” while the “40” is the 40th formula that was tried. Thus, WD-40.
