So the GorillaPod is not new, still cool, but not new, what is new is the accessories they are now packaging with it. There is a suction cup and a couple of Velcro attachments each of which are mountable on the GorillaPod just like a camera.
Today's Video of the Day has got to be one of my favorite videos to date. I'm not going to ruin it for you, but seriously, that has to be the coolest gorilla that I've ever seen.
Smile!! If you love to take photos, you know that sometimes the great picture is hard to capture. Finding a right spot to shoot is not always easy, but thanks to the Gorillapod, now you can shoot from anywhere from any terrain you want.
The Gorillapod is a tripod with three flexible legs that can rotate 360 degrees. It can grip on to just about anything. Whether you are shooting with a small digital camera, an SLR, or a video camera, the Gorilapod is there for you.
Price: £19.95 ($24.20)

Are you a city adventurer? That's what LG wants to know with the launch of the new LG V10 smartphone, arriving today alongside the LTE-connected LG Watch Urbane 2 smartwatch. It also appears to be the result of LG taking an adventure walk through its parts bin, with unusual features like dual front-facing cameras.
The V10 is LG's newest flagship phone focused on "City Adventures" whereas the G series Android phones are considered to be primarily for users who consume video and images. The V10 is packed with a powerful 16MP rear facing camera that's the same as on the LG G4 (review).
It gets more interesting on the front side because LG has managed to pack two cameras. The camera on the left is an ultra-wide 120-degree lens for group shots while the one on the right is 80-degree for regular selfies. Both cameras are 5MP.
LG has also managed to fused two Gorilla glass4 together. At the very top, the first display right below the front facing camera is a 1040 by 160 resolution section that's always on for notifications, your signature or quick access to apps among others. It's highly configurable and also works with certain apps when the main display is on. The main display measures 5.7" + QHD and the Quantum Display.
It's powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 sporting 4GB RAM and there's only storage size of 64GB. There's a memory card slot supporting up to 200GB microSD card. Also, there's a 3000mAh removable battery! Pro users everywhere can rejoice!

LG's second generation Watch Urbane 2 cranks up the functionality with a SIM card and LTE connectivity. Able to stay online either through your phone - paired with Bluetooth - or through its own cellular or WiFi radios, the Watch Urbane 2 has a 1.38-inch circular display covered with Gorilla Glass 3, a 316L Stainless Steel body, and an elastomer band.
The downside of LTE is that LG has snaked the antennas through the strap, so there's no way to switch them out.
LG says it's working with a US operator in the hope of releasing the Watch Urbane 2 linked to a single existing number, rather than the watch having a separate number to your existing phone. Pricing and availability are yet to be confirmed.

The Nexus 6P is not your average Nexus smartphone - it's not just a baseline device. With a 5.7-inch display with 2560 x 1440 pixels and AMOLED technology, this device instantly competes with the highest-end smartphones on the market today. Google also suggests that its camera technology is top notch - coming with a 12.3-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture, 1.55 µm pixels, an IR Laser assisted autofocus, broad-spectrum CRI-90 dual-LED flash, and the ability to capture 4K video at 30fps, this device appears - spec-wise - to be ready to do battle with the best.
This afternoon we're having our first hands-on opportunity with the Nexus 5X, LG's follow-up to their popular Nexus 5. This device works with Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box - the newest Android, as all Nexus smartphones and tablets are meant to have - and has a 5.2-inch LCD display up front. This smartphone works with a high-powered camera around its back and has a fingerprint scanner for Android Pay and unlocking as well. This device is not meant to compete with the strongest smartphones in the world today - only to drive the Android smartphone ecosystem from Google's perspective.
The Nexus 5X works with Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box. It'll have a 5.2-inch display with Full-HD resolution with LCD technology covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 up front. This device has a fingerprint scanner at its back with the same name as the Nexus 6P's, called Nexus Imprint. This fingerprint scanner will work to unlock the device as well as allow users to work with Android Pay. This device will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor inside with Adreno 418 GPU.
This morning Google revealed the Nexus 6P for the first time. This device will be coming in Aluminium, Graphite, and Frost colors - and there'll be a Gold version likely appearing next year, so we hear. The device will be available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB editions. This smartphone is the first "fully metal" Nexus device, coming with an aluminum back and sides. This device has a 12.3-megapixel camera at its back with 1.5 micron pixels, the "best camera [Google] has ever put in a Nexus device."
We weren't in much doubt that Google's event on September 29 would be packed with two new smartphones, but fresh leaks fully detail the Nexus 6P that will share double-billing. Any doubts that it might be a true Nexus flagship seem to have been jettisoned along the way, too, with the promise of an all-metal body, a 5.7-inch WQHD display with Gorilla Glass 4 protection, and a sizable 3,450 mAh battery.
