iballIt does look as though Windows devices are starting to get more and more affordable, and this time around, we have the spanking new Windows Slide WQ32 tablet that hails from Indian brand iBall.

leica v lux 550x359If you’re into taking photos of wildlife, chances are you might want to think about investing in a camera or a camera lens with a long zoom.

leica d lux typ 109 550x325Thinking of picking up a new compact camera? Well Leica has you covered as the company has recently announced their latest Leica D-Lux camera (Typ 109) which will be added to the company’s D-Lux lineup. However as is the case with most Leica products, this camera does not come cheap as it comes with a price tag of £825.00, but if you like Leica’s products, this is probably one of their more affordable models.

So what will that amount of money get you? Well for starters the camera will sport a Micro Four Thirds sensor and will come with a Leica DC Vario-Summilux f/1.7-2.8 24-75mm lens attached to it. This is a rather bright lens and we can’t help but think of the Sony RX100 III which also comes with a fast lens in a compact body. Read full post →Leica D-Lux (Typ 109) Announced

This comes in the form of a newly announced Digimarc Guardian Watermark which basically embeds an invisible watermark in e-books.
