01/11/2013, With BlackBerry 10 just around the corner, details of RIM’s long-awaited platform and its flagship devices are beginning to leak, with the latest one in the form of promotional materials, as reported earlier. The BlackBerry 10 fever is getting hotter in Canada as Rogers, Bell, TELUS, Virgin Mobile, and SaskTel allude their support for BlackBerry 10. We’re also hearing today that Best Buy and Future Shop are now offering pre-orders […]
01/10/2013, We’ve been following Eric Schmidt’s visit to North Korea, and it looks like the Google Executive has returned from the four-day trip together with former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, Jared Cohen of Google Ideas, and Schmidt’s daughter, Sophie. In an interview with reporters at the Beijing International Airport, Schmidt said that North Korea is at risk of falling further behind if it continues to limit the access of the […]
01/08/2013, [CES 2013] When it comes to point-and-shoot cameras, the name already implies that these are probably the most basic cameras and will be good enough to get the job done, just don’t expect to be able to have full control over the camera that you would with a DSLR, or maybe a more prosumer camera. That being said, Olympus could be looking to destroy that notion by announcing the Stylus […]
01/07/2013, [CES 2013] Buffalo is coming up with a couple of new WiFi 11ac routers named Buffalo WZR-1750DHP ($179) and Buffalo WZR-1166DHP ($149). From what we understand, they look very much like the current Buffalo WZR-D1800H in terms of features and performance. However, they will come with Buffalo’s new user interface which makes the most used features (password, guest network… etc) easy to access and setup. Obviously there is still an […]
01/07/2013, [CES 2013] Buffalo is coming up with two interesting models that are part of the 2013 refresh of the LinkStation line of network-attached storage (NAS). Both models feature a significant increase in performance (in MB/s) which is mainly due to a new processor (CPU) and a lot more memory. The CPU went from a frequency of 600Mhz to one of 1.6GHz, and the memory went from 64MB (DDR2) to 256MB […]
01/07/2013, [CES 2013] Olympus has several rugged cameras as part of their CES 2013 lineup, and one of them is the STYLUS TOUGH TG-630 iHS, which as you can see in the photo above, looks like it will be able to withstand a fair amount of abuse and continue operating like nothing was wrong. If you’re the sort of person who is particularly adventurous and participates in rugged sports, or maybe work […]
01/07/2013, [CES 2013] Earlier we mentioned that Olympus had a couple of rugged cameras as part of their CES 2013 lineup, such as the TG-630. If you thought that maybe the TG-630 wasn’t rugged enough for you, then perhaps its big brother, the STYLUS TOUGH TG-830 iHS , might be more to your liking. The TG-830 will sport a slightly larger image sensor – 16MP versus the 12MP on the TG-630, but […]
01/07/2013, [CES 2013] While our smartphones are certainly capable of taking pretty amazing photographs, they still lack certain features that compact cameras have to offer, which is why if you’re in the market for a digital compact camera with a long zoom, Fujifilm might have something to offer in the form of the FinePix T550. Featuring a FUJINON 12x long zoom lens (24-288mm), Fujifilm boasts this camera as not only being […]
