This camera is probably the best 3D camera you can get for the money, and it is indeed a good camera. The 3D effects are very good, the screen uses the same technology as the Nintendo 3DS, but the larger size and higher resolution makes this noticeably better than the 3DS screen. It shoots FULL HD photos and 720p HD video, in 3D aswell as 2D. It can even save as both 3D and 2D. For 2D photos it works quite well too but it’s not a super camera, so the 2D pictures are good, but not super good. It is equipped with CCD sensors, which are cheaper than CMOS sensors, but works well for filming. Still I’d say the picture quality is pretty good. (more…)
More than 30 trucks filled with 5-cent coins arrived at Apple’s headquarters in California.
Initially, the security company that protects the facility said the trucks were in the wrong place, but minutes later, Tim Cook (Apple CEO) received a call from Samsung CEO explaining that they will pay $1 billion dollars for the fine recently ruled against the South Korean company in this way.
the funny part is that the signed document does not specify a single payment method, so Samsung is entitled to send the creators of the iPhone their billion dollars in the way they deem best.
This dirty but genius troll is a new headache to Apple executives as they will need to put in long hours counting all that money, to check if it is all there and to try to deposit it crossing fingers to hope a bank will accept all the coins.
Lee Kun-hee, Chairman of Samsung Electronics, told the media that his company is not going to be intimidated by a group of “geeks with style” and that if they want to play dirty, they also know how to do it.
You can use your coins to buy refreshments at the little machine for life or melt the coins to make computers, that’s not my problem, I already paid them and fulfilled the law.
A total of 20 billion coins, delivery hope to finish this week. Let’s see how Apple will respond to this.
Well apparently it was fake, read more here
This device you see here is called the Microflow, its the size of a toaster but it can detect cancer, infectious diseases and even if food is fresh or not. It does all this simply via testing the air, and surely it can do a lot more when its finished. The device is called a “flow cytometer” and analyzes microparticles in blood or other fluids. What we have now in hospitals are machines weighing hundreds of kilos, so this is certainly an improvement.
“Here on Earth, the device could let people in remote communities be tested more quickly for disease, or permit on-site testing of food quality, for instance. It will be particularly advantageous in space, however, where Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield will test it during his six-month ISS mission, allowing crew to monitor, diagnose and treat themselves without outside help.”-Engadget
This reminds me quite a lot of something i wrote about a while ago, basically the same device but small as an iphone accessory! You can read about that version here.

The Sony DSC RX-100 Featuring: 20.2 megapixels, large 1″ Exmor™ CMOS sensor, F1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens with control ring, 3.6x zoom, P/A/S/M modes, JPEG and RAW image capture, Full HD 1080/60p video with manual control and a whole bunch of interesting features.
My impression of this camera is that it is a lot more advanced than other compact cameras, and the fact that you can use full manual together with its awesome (for a compact camera) lens. It has a panorama mode, image to vector conversion and is one of the few compact digital cameras with RAW.
Compared to the average point and shoot sensor size, the RX100 has a very large, 1″ CMOS sensor. It is a sony EXMOR sensor to be able to capture more light in your pictures and reproduce every detail even in low light conditions. It takes pictures at 350dpi, which is higher than most cameras do. The sensor is probably better than most DSLR sensors.
