A new, larger model of Kodak's Pulse WiFi-enabled digital photo frame has been spotted crossing the FCC. The Kodak Pulse W1030 has a 10-inch LCD display, rather than the 7-inch version announced back at CES 2010, and according to the wireless testing documents supports WiFi b/g together with having a USB port, SD/SDHC/MMC/MS/XD memory card slot and MS/MS Pro Duo card slot.
From time to time I like to think about the idea of disconnecting from the digital world for an extended period and what I'd miss as a result. In the end, I came up with five gadgets that changed the world for me, products the descendents of which I'd rather not be without on a regular basis. What's interesting is that for me, the PC didn't make the list. Perhaps it’s an uber-gadget that just goes without saying or it's just not that important to me personally anymore.
Considering the amount of time people spend on their mobile devices, especially their smartphones, you'd think that printing from them would be pretty commonplace by now. Especially with the fact that they're all fused with WiFi and Bluetooth. But, it's still not everywhere quite yet, so when Kodak announces a brand new printer that features the missing link, well, we get pretty excited.
It's been a few months since Kodak came forward and announced the Playsport Video Camera existed, but the time's finally arrived and the feature-packed HD camera is available right now. It may not be the most attractive piece of hardware out there, but you've got to admit: it's pretty cool that you can throw it into a shallow pool of water, right? Well, at least the picture makes it look fun.
Pentax's huge medium-format 645D digital camera has had a public outing in Toronto this past weekend, demonstrating its updated Kodak 44 x 33 mm sensor - that has climbed from 30- to 40-mexapixels since we first saw the concept back in early 2009 - and general all-round awesomeness. Shooting a single frame per second, the Pentax 645D is apparently intended for scenery and other still-life photography, rather than anything faster moving. Scolirk grabbed some hands-on time and a demo video you can see after the cut.

Announced all the way back at CES 2010, Kodak's latest point-and-shoot digital camera has finally gone up for sale. The Kodak Slice is a 14-megapixel compact, with an internal 5x optical zoom, image stabilization and a 3.5-inch 16:9 capacitive touchscreen on the back. As well as taking photos it can record 720p HD video at 30fps.
Kodak has a line of digital cameras that are designed to make it easy for users to shoot and share pictures called EASYSHARE. Kodak has added a new model to the EASYSHARE line called the M580. The camera is designed to allow for easy sharing of photos on social networks like Facebook, Flickr, and others.
You need quite a few fingers to count off all the reasons why this particular hack is awesome: it's based on a digital camera with a hacked OS, plays classic 3D shooter Doom, and uses authentic keyboard buttons for control. The handiwork of JJ Dasher, The DoomBOX is based on a Kodak DC290 digital camera with a custom port of Doom for its hack-friendly Digita OS.

Could all the Golden-i wearable computer need to be more consumer-friendly be a dashing hat? Probably not quite - after all, there's still the rather noticeable eyepiece to take into account - but William Gerwin's Kodak Sponsored Studio project does do a better job at removing some of the geek-factor to a wearable system.
