Full frontal Olympus E-PM1 spy photo turns up

Full frontal Olympus E-PM1 spy photo turns up

Olympus is set to trot out some new digital cameras tomorrow in London. The presumption is that one of the cameras to be unveiled tomorrow will be the oft leaked E-PM1 that we are talking about here. I already talked a bit about this camera back when leaked photos of the camera top controls surfaced. We don’t have a huge amount of detail on the camera at this point. The camera will launch alongside new 12mm f/2.0 and 45mm f/1.8.

Nokia N9 photos look REALLY good

Nokia N9 photos look REALLY good

I am not a Nokia fan at all. The only Nokia device I have ever owned was a free phone a carrier gave me years, and years ago with one of my first wireless plans. I am still seeing little that would talk me out of my iPhone or an Android device for a Nokia today. What I will say is Nokia knows how to make a camera phone. The camera on my iPhone sucks to the point that I only use it in a pinch and then the photos are just not very high quality.

Elliptical Machine Office Desk makes you workout while you work

Elliptical Machine Office Desk makes you workout while you work

We can be honest here we are among friends. No matter how cool your job is, work sucks. It's a life sucking, free-time killing proposition no matter how you cut it. Some jobs are better than others, but there are still days when you just don’t want to be there. I know a bunch of people that blame their jobs for their weight issues. Hammacher Schlemmer has a new desk that gives you no excuse to be fat and pasty even if your job keeps you chained to a desk all day. The desk setup is called The Elliptical machine Office Desk.

Shift away from landlines continues

Shift away from landlines continues

Everyone I know has a mobile phone of some sort. Even my grandmother and mom have one, even though they rarely answer the phones. When it comes to the segment of the population most likely to have and use smartphones it's the younger and tech savvy that are most often leaving the landline behind for mobile phones only. The latest FCC wireless communications report has been published and sheds a bit of light on the number of users leaving landlines behind.

Windows Phone is first platform to get AmazonFresh app for grocery shopping

Windows Phone is first platform to get AmazonFresh app for grocery shopping

This app is sort of interesting, but the concept is certainly not new. There have been online grocery shopping services before and they have all eventually gone under. Amazon is trying the online grocery thing out again and looking to get the service onto smartens with a new app. You might think that the place to start would be to make the app for the iPhone or Android smartphones. Amazon has chosen Windows Phone as the place to start with the AmazonFresh app.

Long preview video of Nokia N950 lands from Thai developer

Long preview video of Nokia N950 lands from Thai developer

If you are a Nokia fan and have been looking forward to the N950 packing MeeGo and a lot more a new video has landed that you might be interested in. The video has a developer showing off the handset and talking about the features and operation (presumably). I say presumably because the video is in Thai and I have no idea what the person is actually saying. All we do know is that the smartphone is handled on the video and you can see what the thing is about even if we can’t understand the language.

Are soldiers testing night vision contact lenses?

Are soldiers testing night vision contact lenses?

This is a cool thing to me. If you watch any movies with a military theme or any of the discovery type programming centering on military themes you have, seen night vision goggles before. The things clip on to the helmet of the solider and they flip them up or down to control when they need to see in the dark and when normal vision will do. The goggles look to be very bulky and uncomfortable and cut down on peripheral vision too.

“A Juicy Surprise for Tomorrow” says Microsoft’s Sr. Director of Communications for Windows Phone

If you are a big fan of Windows Phone 7 today is an important day for you with some really cool apps finally landing for the platform. WinPo 7 is finally getting some of the apps that other smartphone platforms have been enjoying for a long time now. Perhaps the most important of them is Angry Birds, which is now available for Windows Phone. Angry Birds is "the app" for many mobile phone users and Android fans have been known to buy handsets based on whether it will play that game or not.

Optimus Mini Six hits production; Popularis delayed (again)

Art Lebedev's Optimus Project studios promised that the Mini Six companion keyboard - a compact accessory with six buttons each integrating a user-customizable display - would be here later on in 2011, and now the company has confirmed that it's in the early production stage. In effect a doubled version of the Mini Three, the Mini Six does differ in that it uses new, more compact LCD displays for its keys.

Adobe courts grumpy Final Cut Pro X users with switch endorsements

Adobe has gone on the charm offensive with dissatisfied Apple Final Cut Pro X users, attempting to persuade them to jump ship from the allegedly "dumbed-down" video editing package to its own Premiere Pro software. The company has pushed out a number of videos and profiles highlighting previous switchers - and the success they've had since - as well as tutorials showing how straightforward it can be to make the jump from Final Cut Pro.

Windows Phone Tango update tipped before WP8 Apollo in late 2012

The successor to Windows Phone 7.1 Mango has been named, with reports out of Taiwan claiming that Microsoft is readying an update codenamed "Tango."
